Champion, record, and Ambition Bayern
Jakarta – Bayern Munich have confirmed the Bundesliga title this season. Not quickly satisfied, Bayern has been directed to targets other titles that can still be achieved.
Bayern certainly no longer displaced from the top of the Bundesliga thanks to a 1-0 win over Hertha Berlin on Saturday (25/04/2015), coupled with a 0-1 defeat suffered at the headquarters Wolfsburg Borussia Monchengladbach on Sunday (26/4).
The result leaves Bayern are now collecting 25 titles in the top German football competition, outpacing FC Nuremberg as the second most successful team (9 titles) and Borussia Dortmund (8 titles).
For Bayern, the Bundesliga title this season also was the third straight for the Bavarian club. It is the fourth time Die Roten managed to win the German League for three consecutive times (1972-1974, 1985-1987, 1999-2001, and 2013-2015).
“We are the champions, my friend !!! Three times in a row is a dream come true,” Bayern defender Dante wrote in his Twitter account.
With the latest results, as noted Opta, Bayern also had extended his record clean sheet this season to 21 times. The amount equaling the record Bundesliga Bayern also inscribed in the 2012-13 season. Still have four games remaining, Pep Guardiola’s team that would have the opportunity to record a new record if able to increase the number of his clean sheet. Still related to the number of clean sheets, Manuel Neuer has also equaled a record Bayern to make 19 clean sheets in the Bundesliga this season. The amount is equivalent to the number of clean sheets Oliver Kahn throughout the 2001-02 season.
Bundesliga title itself is necessarily expected Bayern just finished a successful start of the season because there are still two other event that is still the DFB-Pokal acted and the Champions League; Bayern will face Borussia Dortmund in the semi-finals of the DFB-Pokal in the middle of this week and face Barcelona in the last four of the Champions League. That is, Guardiola still likely led Bayern won the treble – who had also reached the club just before his arrival under the direction of Jupp Heynckes.
“League title was never finished anything lightly. It is a great title, the title is important. But of course we want more,” said Bayern sporting director Matthias Sammer told Reuters.
