Bayern Munich Wins Bundesliga Title with 7 Games to Spare

Bleacher Report MilestonesB/R StaffMarch 27, 2014

With Tuesday's 3-1 victory over Hertha Berlin, German football giants Bayern Munich claimed their 24th league title with a record seven domestic matches remaining on their schedule, per BBC Sport.

Midfielder Toni Kroos kicked off the festivities with a goal six minutes into the match. Eight minutes later, teammate Mario Goetze doubled his team's total by scoring off a header.

While Hertha Berlin converted a second-half penalty kick, Bayern's Franck Ribery sealed his side's fate with a late goal that allowed the champs to celebrate with over a month of the season left to play.

Through 27 matches, the Bavarian outfit have accumulated 25 wins, two draws and zero losses, which has brought Bayern's unbeaten streak to an unprecedented 52 Bundesliga matches. Tuesday's triumph also set the record for consecutive away wins in the league with 10.

After hoisting the Champions League trophy last season, Bayern faced heightened expectations entering this term under new manager Pep Guardiola.

However, three Spanish league titles and two Champions League crowns won while coaching Barcelona proved Guardiola to be capable of leading Bayern to new levels during his first season in Germany.

In his first nine months at the helm, Guardiola has not only won the Bundesliga, but he has also claimed the UEFA Super Cup and the FIFA Club World Cup.

Furthermore, a quarter-final pairing with Manchester United has Bayern in contention to defend last season's Champions League title.

If Bayern are able to repeat as European champions, it would be the first time a team has done so since AC Milan accomplished the feat in 1990.
