Does FC Bayern release the seventh consecutive championship title today or restart the big shake?
The starting position: the champions of the record will be the 29th time German champion, if on Saturday at RB Leipzig (unbeaten in 14 league games) they will win (Bundesliga: RB Leipzig – Bayern, from 15.30 in LIVETICKER).
If Borussia Dortmund should not win the home game against Fortuna Dusseldorf (Bundesliga: Borussia Dortmund – Fortuna Dusseldorf, from 15.30 in LIVETICKER), Bayern passes a point in RB. The Monaco will take the title even if they and BVB lose today. Curious: since 2000, the FCB was no longer a home champion. Do you prefer to postpone it to next week and to the home game against Eintracht Frankfurt?
"If you have the chance to become a champion, you have to use them as quickly as possible – this is what the Bavarians will do – it would also be psychologically advantageous for them to close the bag," says legendary coach Ottmar Hitzfeld in an interview SPORT1 significantly.
"Bavaria has the necessary experience"
The coach Niko Kovac has just scheduled: "We have two balls for the match and we want to try using the first one in Leipzig".

If the champion of the record but patzen and the black and the yellow get three points, it is again very exciting. The Bavarians could also have a psychological disadvantage if the title decides the 34th day. Currently, the two best clubs separate four points from the table, the Monaco also has 18 goals with the best goal difference.
What makes Hitzfeld so confident that the Monaco, with which he himself as the coach himself got the shell five times, does not tremble anymore?
In the end, the RB coach Ralf Rangnick made it clear, despite the safe third place, to score today to warm up the cup final. "Bayern has the experience necessary for such situations, especially the national players are used to these pressure situations and will be able to manage them, at this point they have an advantage over Dortmund, because they have a lot of young players" , says Hitzfeld.
"I don't understand Kovac's criticisms"
If Rosso defends the championship today or next week and also clarifies the victory of the DFB Cup against RB Leipzig, he would give the 70-year-old in particular Niko Kovac. Hitzfeld supports the undisputed coach and clarifies: "I don't understand Kovac's criticisms. He does a great job and can still get two titles. You must never dismantle the statements of Karl-Heinz Rummenigge. Bayern, it's just so that all must deliver: coaches, players, sports directors and bosses ".
Hitzfeld himself knows exactly the requirements of FC Bayern. "For a Bayern coach, it is important to get the title, this is the job, so the Kovac title would be a punishment, and I am convinced that Kovac will be Bayern's coach for a few more years."
This thesis is not guaranteed, because the rumors of a premature replacement of Kovac persist persistently at Säbener Strasse. Safer, however, it seems that the Bavarians are no longer trembling, but become masters. Four points ahead on a 32nd day have never been lost in the Bundesliga.
