• Bayern can win title with two games to spare.
  • Wolfsburg one of four sides that could secure safety.
  • Bremen and Stuttgart play on Monday.

FC Bayern München are tantalisingly close to an historic fourth successive Bundesliga title, but Matchday 32 could be just as significant for a whole host of other sides as it is for the defending champions.

Calculator in hand, examines this weekend's major permutations...

FC Bayern München will win the title if...

... they beat Borussia Mönchengladbach.

... they draw against Gladbach and Borussia Dortmund fail to beat VfL Wolfsburg.

... they lose to die Fohlen and BVB are beaten by Wolfsburg.

VfL Wolfsburg will avoid relegation if...

... they pick up at least a point against Dortmund. With SV Werder Bremen playing VfB Stuttgart on Monday, 40 points will definitely be enough to secure safety this season.

... Bremen and Eintracht Frankfurt both fail to win. 39 points would then be enough to survive.
