Uli Hoeness has backed Bayern Munich to win the Champions League as well as DFB-Pokal to mark a historic treble winning season.

Bayern Munich bettered their record of winning consecutive Bundesliga titles to eight in a row after they were crowned the 2019/20 league champions.

Bayern had clinched the title earlier this month but had to wait until their 4-0 win against Wolfsburg over the weekend to lift the trophy.

The German giants now aim to land another trophy as they prepare to go against Bayer Leverkusen in DFB-Pokal final next month.

Moreover, having dismantled Chelsea 3-0 in the Last 16 first leg, they have one foot in quarterfinals of the competition and are also one of the favorites to win this season’s Champions League.

Former club president believes the team has a fair chance of winning the remaining two competitions if they keep up their sensational form.

“If our team can preserve this form, we have a good chance of winning everything,” Hoeness told Blickpunkt Sport. “I hope that the team can keep the rhythm.”

“It’s really special to score 100 goals in a Bundesliga season. It’s a sensational achievement.

“The other [teams] have to work harder now. You can’t expect Bayern to work only half a day to make the Bundesliga more exciting.”
