Berlin, (APP - UrduPoint / Pakistan Point News - 21st May, 2021 ) :Robert Lewandowski can break Gerd Mueller's 49-year-old Bundesliga single-season goal record this weekend when champions Bayern Munich play in front of their home fans for the first time since March 2020.
"I guess he'll score two goals at the weekend and break the record," predicts former Bayer Leverkusen striker Ulf Kirsten, 55, a three-time Bundesliga top scorer in the 1990s.
"Nevertheless, I hope things stay as they are, because Gerd Mueller was my idol." With a ninth straight league title already confirmed, Bayern will lift the Bundesliga trophy after the final whistle.
Alaba is expected to join Real Madrid and leaves with a joint-record of 10 Bundesliga titles under his belt, while Boateng, 32, needs a new club.
For the first time since the Covid-19 pandemic hit Germany 14 months ago, fans will return to the Allianz Arena with just 250 allowed into the 75,000-capacity stadium.
Health workers will get 100 tickets with the rest shared between supporters and staff.
With infection rates dropping across Germany, other Bundesliga clubs can also welcome back small numbers of fans.
However, things are tight at the other end of the table with two points separating Cologne, Werder Bremen and Arminia Bielefeld, the three clubs fighting to stay up above Schalke, who are bottom of the league and already relegated.
To stand a chance of avoiding automatic relegation, second-from-bottom Cologne must beat Schalke.
Bremen played the two-legged play-off for last year, squeezing past second-tier side Heidenheim on away goals.
Bielefeld are 15th, but they must win at Stuttgart to be sure of not getting dragged into the bottom three.
28: Number of Bundesliga games Lewandowski has needed to score 40 goals this season, while Gerd Mueller achieved the same tally over 34 matches.
7: Trophies Flick has won during 18 months at Bayern Munich, losing just eight of his 85 matches in charge, with 69 wins.
