Bundesliga top-scorer Robert Lewandowski scored twice for Bayern Munich to clinch an unprecedented fourth successive title with a 2-1 win at Ingolstadt on Saturday.
The Poland striker opened the scoring with a penalty in the 15th minute and claimed his 29th goal of the season in the half. Moritz Hartmann pulled one back with another penalty before the break but Bayern never looked in danger of missing out on its record 25th Bundesliga title, and its 26th German championship overall.

Borussia Dortmund’s 1-0 loss at relegation-threatened Eintracht Frankfurt meant even a defeat would have been enough for Bayern, eight points clear of Dortmund with one round remaining.
Also, Borussia Moenchengladbach came from behind to beat Bayer Leverkusen 2-1 and all but secure the Champions League playoff spot.
