Bayern Munich have emerged champions of Germany after defeating Dortmund 3-1 in a Bundesliga game at the Allianz Arena on Saturday night.
Bayern clinched the title in a grand style, seeing off rivals Dortmund in a thrilling Der Klassiker encounter.
The win for Julian Nagelsmann’s side opens a 12-point lead at the top of the Bundesliga table with three games left.
Serge Gnabry opened the scoring before Robert Lewandowski added a second for the hosts.
Emre Can’s penalty cut the lead but Jamal Musiala added a third for Bayern late on to deliver a 32nd league title to the German champions.
