Bookmaker pays out on Bayern as champions before Christmas

BAYERN Munich have been declared Bundesliga champions by one betting company before the halfway stage of the season.

Bayern take an 11-point advantage into the last round of matches in 2012 and anybody who had placed a bet on them winning the league with myBet can enjoy an early Christmas present as the company is already paying out.

"Bayern's dominance and the quality and strength in depth they have in their squad speaks for itself," said myBet's general manager Edward Mifsud on

"No other Bundesliga club can compete with them this season."

Bayern are already 14 points clear of defending champions Borussia Dortmund - who managed to overturn an eight-point deficit on the Bavarians last season, but are looking unlikely to bridge an even greater gap this time around.

"It's not only the advantage on second place, but it is also their huge goal difference of plus 37 which earns them an extra point," added Mifsud.

Dortmund's 81-point Bundesliga record from last season is also under threat with Bayern, who have lost only once all season, already on 41 points with one game to go before the halfway stage of the season.
