Posted on 03/26/2014 2:51:28 AM PDT by Berlin_Freeper
Bayern Munich defeated Hertha Berlin 3-1 to become the earliest Bundesliga champion in 51 years of the league Tuesday, when the defending champion claimed its 24th German title.
The result ensures Pep Guardiolas side wraps up the title with seven games to spare in the Spaniards first season as coach, beating the mark set in last years record-breaking campaign by one game.
Praise has to go to the coach and the team, Bayern sporting director Matthias Sammer said. Pep Guardiola suits this team. Hes not only an expert, hes also a fantastic guy.
It was Bayerns 19th consecutive win, its 10th consecutive victory away from home, and it stretched its unbeaten run to 52 games. All are Bundesliga records.
Bayern finished 25 points ahead of Borrusia Dortmund last season and is even more dominant this campaign. Of 27 games so far this season, Bayern has won 25 and drawn the other two. It also has scored more goals (79) and conceded fewer (19) than any other side by a large margin.

Well played, BF...well played!
7 - Bayern have won the Bundesliga title with a record seven games to spare. The previous record was the six games left that Bayern won the title with last year.
10 - Bayern have won their last 10 away matches in the league. The old record was nine - again, set by them last season.
19 - Bayern Munich have won their last 19 games - a Bundesliga record. The previous record was 15, set by Bayern in 2005.
19 - They have scored two goals or more in each of their last 19 wins - also a league record.
24 -This is Bayern Munich's 24th German (and West German) title, another record.
25 - Bayern have won 25 matches in the Bundesliga this season. The record is 29, set by them last year.
25 March - Bayern Munich have clinched the earliest league title in Bundesliga history. They took until 6 April to do it last year - the previous record.
27 - Bayern's 27-game unbeaten run to start a Bundesliga season is also a record. Bayer Leverkusen's 24 at the start of 2009-10 was the old landmark. If they see the season out unbeaten, they will break AC Milan's record of 58 games (1991 to 1993) for Europe's top-five leagues.
27 - Bayern manager Pep Guardiola, appointed in the summer, has not lost in his first 27 matches in the Bundesliga. Kaiserslautern's Karl-Heinz Feldkamp (1978-79) had the old record with 14.
52 - Bayern Munich have not lost in 52 Bundesliga matches, a run going back to October 2012. Hamburg had the old record of 36 games unbeaten in 1982 and 1983.
77 - Bayern are on 77 points. The record for a Bundesliga season is 91 (set by Bayern last year). They can finish on 98 if they win their remaining seven games.
79 - Bayern have scored 79 goals in the league this season. They need another 23 to set a new goal-scoring record in the Bundesliga. Their 101-goal haul in 1971-72 is still the record.
Good morning Cletus.D.Yokel!
Help me to understand something, please.
Does each country or region in Europe have a “pro league”?
That plays regular season games and then winner goes on to meet other league winners? Will this team go on to play in a European Championship?
Wonder if Pep is going to face his old team in CL.
The only question about their upcoming tie with Manchester United, is will they win it by double-digits?
Double digits in the quarter-finals of the Champions League might be a new record.
I was ready to write off Barcelona, but after they beat Real this past weekend, maybe they’re not done yet. Although I’d still favor Atletico as of now, although they haven’t been on this big of a stage before.
That is the pledge of club president Josep Maria Bartomeu just two days after the Argentina star's hat-trick defeated Real Madrid and put Barca back in the title race.
Bayern defending the title would be a new record.
Bayern have so many options they have to play ‘Rock Paper Scissors’ to decide free-kick taker: https://vine.co/v/MAYDMAZde7W
"Can United beat Bayern? Nooo, they have no chance," he said. "Bayern Munich have an amazing team - they're over 50 games unbeaten which is an incredible record. They are the favourites for the Champions League."
Manchester United can beat Bayern Munich according to Stoke boss Mark Hughes
Hughes said: They can beat Bayern absolutely. It will be difficult because they are an outstanding team.
There was never going to be an easy draw whoever United might have got and they are not having one of their better seasons. But the Olympiacos result was the right reaction and I think David will turn things around there.
Hughes added: Its early days and Im surprised to see so much speculation about his future. Hes been given a long contract to put things in palce and I think he will.
Wayne Rooney: teams no longer fear visiting Manchester United
The last time United lost six league matches at home was in 2002 and that is a statistic Rooney feels is unacceptable. "It's not good enough," Rooney said in a frank interview with MUTV. "We can't lose six homes games in a season and we have to put that right, and make this a place which teams fear again."
Manchester United fans invited to trade their season ticket for a copy of FIFA 14 at GAME
Manchester United, West Brom and Cardiff City fans are being offered the chance to bring miserable seasons to an abrupt end by trading in their season tickets for a copy of FIFA 14.
Bayern Munich averaged 12 passes per min in their last match...12...per minute!1 every 5 seconds
The way it works is, depending on the strength of a domestic league, each league sends a certain number of teams to the following season’s Champions League.
For example, the English Premier League, sends the top four teams to play in next year’s UEFA Champions League. The Champions League runs parallel to the domestic season. It’s not like we do it here where there’s a regular season than a playoff.
Maradona Says Hes a Soldier for Venezuela Against Imperialists
Were seeing all the lies from the imperialists, and Im willing to be a soldier for Venezuela for whatever is needed of me, Maradona said in a video posted on Telesurs website. Chavez would have wanted this.
I am so looking forward to Moyes making his return to Goodison.
That would be a promotion.
I meant I can’t wait for Everton to kick his you-know-what.
"You can't look at the match against Bayern Munich in the Champions League last eight with any optimism. They just can't. As much as people might say I'm being unfair or negative, it is difficult to be positive," the 49-year-old wrote in his Eurosport column.
"There is nothing to suggest Manchester United can take on Bayern over two games. Especially for a side who have lost at home to West Bromwich, Newcastle United and Everton. The fear factor at Old Trafford has gone."
I may have broken my posting record for a single day.

The joke at the end of the game was "Moyes finally saw Everton win at Old Trafford."
Thanks, So Is this championship played every two years? I went to the link provided and I get the general idea but some parts are still confusing.
I have watched World Cup the past three times and am starting to like it more. I keep hearing to watch the premier league or something to watch the best teams, much better then the WC.
So I guess this will the matches to watch for the best soccer?
The CL Quarter Finals are April 1 & 2! :)
