Bayern Munich aiming for a treble ahead of Saturday's German Cup final

Bayern Munich will be going for the treble as they focus on Saturday's German Cup final before switching their guns to next month's Champions League.

The club hierarchy has made it clear that they would take nothing short of a treble this season and the German press have dubbed the team 'FC Nimmersatt' (never satisfied) after celebrating an eighth straight league title last Saturday, the 30th in the club's history.

"The team is in such good shape that they are able to win every title this season," said Bayern president Herbert Hainer.

The German champions will face Bayer Leverkusen in Berlin in Saturday's Cup final having already lost to the Werkself this season.

Leverkusen sporting director Rudi Voeller has promised a "big fight" as they look to repeat November's shock league win when Jamaica winger Leon Bailey scored twice at the Allianz Arena.

Bayern are expected to secure the league and Cup double for the 13th time.

"We'll tackle everything, those are our goals," said Bayern head coach Hansi Flick, who only took over mid-season.

"At Bayern, you always think a bit bigger. First the Cup is in focus and then it's important the team has some time off and the staff can clear their heads.

"After that, we'll prepare intensively for the Champions League."

Bayern players will break for a two-week holiday after the Cup final before regrouping for the Champions League last-16 tie against Chelsea on August 7. The Germans lead the tie 3-0 and are favourites to bag the continental trophy this year.
