German and European champions Bayern Munich can retain the Bundesliga with a record seven games to spare if they win at Hertha Berlin tonight.
A point will be enough if second-placed Borussia Dortmund draw with third-placed Schalke in the Ruhr derby. They lead Dortmund by 23 points going into Tuesday night’s fixture.
Bayern, who have not been beaten in 51 Bundesliga matches, won the title last season with six games left on their way to clinching a record three titles.
They visit Old Trafford for the first leg of their Champions League quarter-final clash against Manchester United on April 1.
FC Bayern have been Germann champions on 23 different occasions but victory against Hertha Berlin will see them clinch their first league title under coach Pep Guardiola, who succeeded treble-winning coach Jupp Heynckes last summer.
They are also gunning for their sixth European Cup triumph following the Wembley final victory in May.
