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.

You posted this for the headline shock. 2/3rds of American FReepers just waking up are collectively saying...”Huh?”
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.
