What stands between Bayern and the treble?

Only eight trebles of league, domestic cup and UEFA Champions League have been achieved: can Bayern make it nine?

Eight teams and seven different clubs have claimed 'the treble' over the years, winning the European Cup, league title and biggest domestic cup in the same campaign:

1966/67: Celtic
1971/72: Ajax
1987/88: PSV Eindhoven
1998/99: Manchester United
2008/09: Barcelona
2009/10: Internazionale Milano
2012/13: Bayern München
2014/15: Barcelona

Bayern could yet wrap up a ninth treble, their second, with Jupp Heynckes becoming the first coach to do it twice for good measure. His charges wrapped up the Bundesliga title with five games to spare and on Tuesday booked a place in the German Cup final with a thumping 6-2 win at Leverkusen.

The decider against Eintracht Frankfurt takes place on 19 May in Berlin, seven days before a potential UEFA Champions League final in Kyiv against either Liverpool or Roma. Just the small matter of overcoming Real Madrid in the last four first, though.
