Even if Bayern sew up the title, the team’s steely focus isn't likely to waver, as there are still several records to be equalled or broken in the season's final stretch. bundesliga.com has a look at the historical bestmarks that could still tumble come May...
The highest points total accrued by a Bundesliga-winning team came just last season, when Dortmund lifted the Meisterschale with 81 points. The Reds can smash that record and take their points tally as high as 93 if they win each of their seven remaining games.
The highest winning margin of any title triumph was 16 points, set by Bayern themselves in the 2002/03 campaign. That also looks to be beaten this season, as the current Bayern side already lead second-placed Dortmund by a mammoth 20 points, with 21 still left to play for.
The Reds narrowly missed out on lifting the title last week on account of Dortmund's win over VfB Stuttgart. Nevertheless, victory in Frankfurt will mean triumph with just 28 games played. The previous fastest title was sewn up on Matchday 30 in 1973 and 2003, on both occasions by FC Bayern.
Yet again, it is a Bayern record that stands to be broken. The Bavarians conceded just 21 times on the way to their 2007/08 triumph and are on course to better that this term, having conceded a miserly 13 goals. The imperious form of Brazilian defender Dante, signed last summer from Borussia Mönchengladbach, has been a major factor in the improvement.
Last season Dortmund's excellent away form helped them to 37 points from 17 matches on their travels. This term Bayern have already accumulated that exact total, and still have four games to play on foreign soil before the season is up.
At their current rate, Manuel Neuer & Co. can go an entire season undefeated on the road. That feat has only been achieved once before in German top flight history, by, you guessed it, die Münchner themselves in 1986/87.
And of course, a 22nd Bundesliga title would affirm Bayern's undisputed place as Germany's most successful club. Joint-second on the list of title winners are Dortmund and Mönchengladbach with five.
