Summary

  • Bayern need a point from final two games to win title.
  • Guardiola's men knocked out of Champions League in midweek.
  • Promoted Ingolstadt already safe.

FC Bayern München will clinch an unprecedented fourth successive Bundesliga title if they avoid defeat at FC Ingolstadt 04's Audi-Sportpark on Saturday (kick-off:15:30CEST/13:30GMT).

The Bavarian giants suffered an agonising UEFA Champions League semi-final defeat to Club Atletico de Madrid on away goals in midweek, and will be determined to make amends after missing the chance to wrap up a 25th Bundesliga crown in last Saturday's 1-1 draw with Borussia Mönchengladbach.

Promoted Ingolstadt will be be hoping to kick-start a party of their own, however, in their final home game of the campaign. The Bundesliga first-timers have plenty to celebrate, too, having already secured their top-flight status for another year.
