Toni Kroos: Says the league title race is over

With nine games of the season remaining, just three more wins are required to seal the title, but they could win it ever sooner if other results go their way.

"There is no question that we are going to win the title this year, we just have to see when that will happen," said midfielder Toni Kroos.

Only coach Jupp Heynckes was remaining cautious.

"Until it is mathematically certain, we will not be taking congratulations from anybody," he said.

However, he was quick to pass on the compliments to opponents Fortuna, who went close to inflicting only his side's second defeat of the season.

Bayern twice trailed in the match and needed a late winner from defender Jerome Boateng to snatch all three points.

"It was very tight and I've got to pay compliments to Fortuna," the coach said. "They made life difficult for us.

"This game showed that no game is won before the kick-off.

"But we saw that we have such a fantastic morale that we were able to win the game with our substitutes. We turned it around with our class."

think that puts all doubts over Benteke's quality to bed. Can he do it after receiving the ball to feet, in the box, totally unmarked, on a warm, sunny afternoon in Swindon? Oh yes he can! This year is definitely Liverpool's year. YNWA.

ll very well selling all midfield and strikers but unless we bring anyone in that is better than what we had then it will be a terrible transfer window in my view. Sorted out the defense but our midfield and striker options look very light.

ove it when Jose accuses others of being defensive, cynical and playing to win. If I was Wenger, I'd get that quote laminated and framed - surely the biggest compliment he's ever received from Mourinho. You've got him riled Arsene - you're relevant again!
