Without a shadow of a doubt, it has been an unbelievable season for Bayern Munich.
 
Champions of the Bundesliga in record-breaking fashion, they also have a German Cup final to prepare for, as well as having one foot in the final of the Champions League following their 4-0 rout of Barcelona in their semi-final first leg.
 
The job done by Jupp Heynckes in his final season at the helm of the Bavarians has been exceptional, with a side jam-packed full of talent.  Whether it be the German playmaker Toni Kroos, French winger Frank Ribery, midfield general Bastian Schweinsteiger or the new cult hero at the Allianz Arena, Brazilian defender Dante, all have been outstanding.  There is no question that Bayern have played to their optimum more often than not this campaign.
 
And with the arrivals of Pep Guardiola, a two-time Champions League winner as a coach, Dortmund prodigy Mario Gotze this summer as well as a number of other high-quality targets that hav been mooted, Bayern could well be much stronger next term.
 
However, while most social media, websites and newspapers have been quick to hail this as the beginning of an all-conquering era for the German club, there are a number of sides who will have their own sights set on European glory next season.
