FC Bayern München remain on course for Bundesliga, DFB Cup and UEFA Champions League success, but there is lot of work still left to do to achieve their first treble since the 2012/13 season.
Bayern midfielder Thiago Alcantara looks ahead to the UEFA Champions League semi-final against Club Atletico de Madrid and title run-in in an exclusive bundesliga.com interview.
bundesliga.com: Thiago Alcantara, what is the biggest challenge on the final straight of the season going to be?
Thiago: You've got to treat every game as a final and prepare yourself with that in mind. You've got to be ready, fully focused and at the same time you must try not to forget to enjoy yourself.
bundesliga.com: That sounds like a big challenge for you and Bayern. With a seven-point lead in the Bundesliga, things are looking good there. You're in the final of the DFB Cup and now have a Champions League semi-final against Atletico which people are talking a lot about...
Thiago: We're bidding to win the Bundesliga for a fourth time in a row, which no club has ever achieved. It makes more sense to think about games you have in just a few days or weeks. When the season is drawing to its conclusion, and of course there are titles up for grabs, then that's the only strategy you can have if you want to succeed. Every title's important, the league in particular.
"We can already say that these have been three excellent years"
"Atletico are not up where they are by chance - they warrant the whole world's respect"
