Bayern Munich clinch fifth consecutive Bundesliga title

Bayern Munich have sealed a fifth consecutive Bundesliga title with a comfortable 6-0 win against VfL Wolfsburg on Saturday.

Earlier on Saturday afternoon, RB Leipzig’s draw with FC Ingolstadt left the door open for Bayern to seal the title with three games to spare.

David Alaba opened the scoring before a Robert Lewandowski brace all but sealed the title before half-time.

Second-half goals from Arjen Robben, Thomas Müller and Joshua Kimmich ended a rout.

The success is Bayern’s 25th Bundesliga title and their first under Carlo Ancelotti in the Italian’s first season in Germany.

Bayern have lost just two league games all season and, despite poor form of late, have looked certain to win the league since February, when the form of newly-promoted Leipzig dropped off.

Having lost to Borussia Dortmund in the cup on Wednesday, Carlo Ancelotti and his players will be relieved to have won the title with a few games to spare, ensuring the trophy cabinet at the Allianz Arena remains full for another year.
