Bayern Munich are heading towards their fourth consecutive Bundesliga title and they’re doing it in style.

The Bavarian club are five points clear of Borussia Dortmund with just seven matches remaining as they look to complete a historic treble.

Manager Pep Guardiola will leave the club at the end of the season to take over at Manchester City, and the German club could give the Spaniard the perfect send-off.

As well as being five points clear in the league, they are in the semi-final of the DFB-Pokal Cup and face Benfica in the Champions League quarter-finals.

They were expected to beat relegation-threatened Frankfurt fairly comfortably on Saturday afternoon but are only 1-0 up at half-time.

But, what a goal it was.

The danger seemed to be over when Mario Gotze’s shot was parried by goalkeeper Lukas Hradecky but Frank Ribery had other ideas.

The Frenchman turned his back to goal and unleashed a tremendous overhead kick into the back of the net.

Watch the sensational strike below:

The 32-year-old has only made seven appearances in the league this season after a series of injuries.

Even when fit, Ribery would find it difficult to oust the likes of Arjen Robben, Kingsley Coman and Douglas Costa.

But Ribery has just reminded everyone what has capable of.

The former Marseille man is in his ninth season in Bavaria and was this week urged to retire at the club. But judging by his incredible goal, Ribery still has plenty of years left in him before he thinks about retirement.
