Philipp Lahm is preparing to win his first trophy as captain of Bayern Munich tomorrow with the record German champions set to clinch the Bundesliga with six games to go.

Bayern can make the 2012/13 title theirs with a win, while any result will be enough to see off the challenge of their nearest rivals Borussia Dortmund if the Westphalians fail to beat Augsburg tomorrow afternoon.

No club has ever won the title so early in the season, and Bayern don't want to wait any longer to clinch their 23rd championship.

"We desperately want to win the title,'' said Xherdan Shaqiri, a Swiss Super League winner with Basle last May.

"It would give us a huge boost for the game in Turin.''

Bayern may be forgiven for having their minds on the second leg of their Champions League quarter-final against Juventus next Wednesday, and because of the importance of that fixture, there will be no particular celebrations in the event of winning the league tomorrow.

Defensive midfielder Javi Martinez does not want to get ahead of himself and believes Bayern still have a big job on their hands against a side currently sitting fifth in the Bundesliga.

"It is not going to be easy,'' he said on his club's website. "Frankfurt are one of the biggest surprises this season.''

Frankfurt are, however, without three key players.

Goalkeeper Kevin Trapp has already been ruled out until the end of the season with a broken hand while Pirmin Schwegler and top-scorer Alexander Meier are both major doubts for the clash at a sold-out Waldstadion.

"Either they are 100 per cent fit or not, and it looks more likely to be the latter,'' said coach Armin Veh.

Stefano Celozzi is likely to come in to the midfield as a replacement, and he is keen to make an impression.

"It would be great if we could spoil Bayern's party,'' he said.

Frankfurt are bidding to join Bayern in the Champions League next season and are therefore in need of the three points more than their guests.
