Last season, Borussia Dortmund outclassed Bayern Munich in the league and cup to claim a historic double.

The gods also seemed to be against them in the Champions League as Didier Drogba's Chelsea narrowly beat them in the Allianz Arena; cruelly denying Bayern yet another Champions League trophy on penalties. 

Having finished the runners-up in three competitions last season it is a case of so near yet so far for the Munich outfit.

While most teams might be downhearted by narrowly missing out on every major trophy last year, Bayern have simply regrouped and with the signings of players Dante, Xherdan Shaqiri, Javi Martinez and Mario Mandzukic they have only got better. 

Toni Kroos is coming of age at the right time, Arjen Robben is regaining his form and Franck RIbery  keeps proving why he is one of the best players in Europe.

Bayern Munich are sitting pretty at the top of the Bundesliga with a 20-points advantage over closest rivals Borussia Dortmund and have recently secured the title with six games remaining – the earliest any German team has ever won the league. 

After a 2-0 first leg victory against Juventus they are likely to qualify for the semi-finals of the Champions League and they have also reached the semi finals of this season DFB-Pokal. 

So, can Munich complete the treble? 

Only a fool will back against Bayern completing the domestic double in Germany especially after eliminating Borussia Dortmund in the cup. 

Therefore, the German focus must turn to the Champions League if they're to complete a memorable treble. Bayern Munich will likely have to knock out at least one of the Spanish giants Real Madrid or Barcelona if they want to lift the trophy for the fifth time. 

Bayern Munich secured a convincing 2-0 victory over Juventus on Tuesday to all but secure their place in this season's Champions League semi finals and it remains to be seen if anyone can stop this German team from completing a famous treble that they came so close to last year.
