Bayern Munich captain Oliver Kahn says he has not given up hope of retaining the Bundesliga title.
The Bavarian giants have been stuck in fourth place in the league for several weeks and are currently six points adrift of leaders Schalke.
However, the experienced shot-stopper believes that a lot can still happen in the remaining five weeks of the season.
"We are, of course, focusing on getting third place," he said after his team's 2-1 win over Leverkusen on Sunday.
"But we wouldn't be Bayern Munich if we didn't completely believe in everything that is still possible. A lot can still happen.
"I've experienced a lot of things in my career. At the moment the teams above us keep winning, but that will change at some point."
Bayern travel to third-placed Stuttgart on Saturday knowing that defeat could see them miss out on a UEFA Champions League berth next season.
