The writing has been on the wall for a while in Germany and after dominating the Bundesliga Bayern Munich have regained their title from Borussia Dortmund.
Bayern simply had to beat high-flying Eintracht Frankfurt on Saturday to wrap up the earliest ever German league title triumph as despite Dortmund’s 4-2 win against Augsburg Bayern are now an unassailable 20 points ahead of their Westfalen rivals.
Bayern are now on for a historic season and can rest their top players in the league as they chase European glory on the Champions League front.
Not only did they win it but they did it in some style. It was the captain who grabbed the winner when he stylishly back-heeled the winning goal to send the club into jubilant raptures.
This Bayern outfit are now being called the greatest ever team to play in the Bundesliga and after the way they sealed the title it would be a brave man to argue with that fact.
If things couldn’t get any better … Pep Guardiola replaces Jupp Heynckes at the end of the season when the current manager goes into a well-deserved retirement.
Here is the goal that won the first of Europe’s big titles this season…
Can Bayern add the Champions League title to Bundesliga success?
