BERLIN (AFP) - Pep Guardiola's Bayern Munich will try to heal their Champions League hurt with a win at Ingolstadt on Saturday which would confirm a record fourth straight German league title.

Atletico Madrid advanced to the Champions League final on away goals at Bayern's expense on Tuesday despite losing the second leg of their semi-final 2-1 in Munich. The La Liga side triumphed 1-0 in Spain last week.

It was Bayern's third consecutive Champions League exit at the semi-final stage.

With their dreams of winning the treble now gone, Bayern can still clinch the double as they also face Borussia Dortmund in the German Cup final in Berlin on May 21.

"We still have two major aims this season and I hope that we win the remaining three games and can celebrate the German title and the German Cup," said Bayern striker Robert Lewandowski. "We're still not champions yet, though, but I hope we will be in Ingolstadt."

Bayern have won the league in each of the last three seasons with games to spare, but the destination of this season's title has not been decided so late in the season since 2009/10.

Ingolstadt will be Guardiola's final away game in the Bundesliga before coaching Manchester City next season.
