BERLIN (AFP) - Germany star Thomas Mueller has admitted that the Bundesliga title race is over and it is just a matter of time before Bayern Munich are again crowned champions.

"From a realistic point of view, the Bundesliga title has already been decided," the 24-year-old told Munich newspaper TZ with Bayern holding a 19-point lead at the top of the table.

"I don't think anyone is reckoning that we will lose six of our last remaining 12 matches when we haven't lost any of our 22 games up until now."

Mueller is only stating what has been obvious for months, but it is the first time someone from the Bayern camp has admitted the title race is effectively decided.
