Bayern Munich are Bundesliga champions for fifth time in a row

Bayern Munich are Bundesliga champions for fifth time in a row

German giants Bayern Munich thrashed Wolfsburg 6-0 on Saturday to clinch the Bundesliga for a record fifth straight season.

It has been another season of domestic dominance for Bayern, having lost just twice in the league all season, and they wrapped up their 27th championship with three games to go with a thumping win over Wolfsburg.

David Alaba fired Bayern ahead from a free-kick. Poland striker Robert Lewandowski scored twice before half-time. Arjen Robben added a trademark shot after cutting in from the right in the second half.

Wolfsburg captain Luiz Gustavo was sent-off late on and had to be restrained by team-mates after sarcastically applauding the referee, before Thomas Muller tapped in a fifth goal for the visitors.

And Josh Kimmich drilled in a sixth and left Wolfsburg just a point above the relegation zone.

Second-placed RB Leipzig were held to a goalless draw by 10-man Ingolsdat earlier on Saturday, hence Bayern took the title home early.

“Five times in a row, that’s unbelievable. We completely deserve to be champions,” Bayern’s chairman Karl-Heinz Rummenigge told Sky Sports after his side lifted the title.
