In case you didn't notice, Manchester United aren't exactly easy opponents :P

Every Match a Final

With the end to the season approaching, Bayern Munich manager David Beckham has publicly rallied his players to push on for a quadruple and an 'Invincibles' season.

"We have to treat every match now like a World Cup Final," said Beckham. "We're in for a chance of the quadruple and completing an Invincibles season. The lads have to push on."

Bayern Munich are in the DFB Pokal Final, where they will face Borussia Dortmund - and are also in the Champions League Semi Finals, with Manchester United standing between them and a second consecutive appearance in the Champions League Final.

Having secured the DFL Super Cup early in the season as well as the Bundesliga league title, Die Roten have a very real chance of completing a quadruple.

The Bavarian giants are also currently unbeatable in the league, with 28 wins and 2 draws in 30 games. So far, no club in the Bundesliga has ever completed a German season unbeaten in the league. But with only 4 games left until the end of this season's Bundesliga, Beckham's boys have a chance to set another record.

"We won the treble last season, so of course this year we only want to build on that. We want the quadruple, and to finish the season unbeaten in the league. We have no losses in 30 games, it's a phenomenal record. Let's push on and make it 34 games, a full Bundesliga season, without a loss.

"Everyone is saying how this season has been another success for Bayern but personally I don't think it will be one until we finish the season with a quadruple, and a 0 percent loss record in the Bundesliga.

"We can do this. We just have to keep playing the way we've been playing all season, and keep our cool."

Bayern Munich v Aston Villa in the final would be awesome!

Europe's Final Hurdle

Bayern Munich will be appearing in their second consecutive Champions League Final after they took advantage of the away goals rule to advance on from the Semi Finals, holding Manchester United to a 5-5 draw.

It was an epic conclusion to two fantastic legs, with Bayern Munich beating United 3-0 at the Allianz Arena. However, the Red Devils soon showed the power of their '12th man', the fans, as they crushed Bayern 5-2 at Old Trafford. Unfortunately for Jose Mourinho's side, Bayern will be the one going through to the Champions League Final thanks to the away goals rule.

But Die Bayern will be without Ryan Garland and Eneko Diez for the Final - with Garland suffering an injury in the match against Manchester United while Diez will be forced to serve suspension for a red card, also received against the Red Devils.

Garland's newly-torn hamstring has also smashed his Euro 2020 dream. With the injury, the former West Ham man will be out for a minimum of 2 months, meaning that he'll miss what was supposed to be his first major tournament with England.

Bayern boss David Beckham has revealed that the 23-year-old was "devastated, but very happy for Bayern Munich that we are in the Final".

Beckham, who also manages the England national team, will be in a crippling situation as Garland joins England's growing list of injuries - with Jonjo Shelvey and Andy Carroll facing a race against time to get fit for the European Championships in Turkey.

Garland and England aside, Bayern Munich will be looking to finally get their hands on the seventh Champions League trophy in their history.

Coincidentally, the club Bayern Munich will be facing is Aston Villa.

The Villans beat Russian giants Zenit in the Semi Finals 2-1 on aggregate.

Beckham took charge of Aston Villa - his first managerial position, in June 2012 and from relegation contenders, returned Villa to their age old status as a European powerhouse, before leaving to occupy the hot seat at Bayern Munich in November 2017.

Although Malky Mackay is and was the manager in charge of Aston Villa as they powered their way to a 2nd place finish in the Premier League last season as well as the Champions League Final this season - Beckham is credited as the man behind Villa's success, with plenty of the current important squad members at Villa Park having been brought to the club by the talented English manager.

Club stalwart Ciaran Clark also changed himself from a 'backup player' to an 'Aston Villa legend' thanks to guidance from Beckham.

It will certainly be an interesting and an emotional Champions League Final for David Beckham.

The Big Finale is on!
Mixed feelings in the Champions League Final. I wonder if Beckham would be upset or gracious if Villa pipped him to Europe's crown?

FC Bayern Munich Player of the Month

Siyanda Xulu has been named the club's Player of the Month this April for his excellent and consistent performances in defense. The South African international also scored some important goals this month with his fantastic heading ability, heading into the net against Manchester United and Real Madrid.

Player Worthy of a Mention

Thiago was fantastic in dominating Bayern Munich's midfield this month and was a vital player for Bayern as they cruised to the Champions League Final.

2nd Leg versus Man United must have been mental. How good was your heart rate? lol
Oki: Both, maybe? :P I kinda dislike Malky Mackay though, so I'm not giving him the opportunity to lift it, so probably the former.

Paddy: My heart almost jumped out of my mouth every time they scored a goal! It was frightening :/
