Bayern bags 6th straight German league title

Bayern bags 6th straight German league title

With another Bundesliga crown now wrapped up, Bayern's attention will now switch to its European and DFB-Pokal campaigns, as Heynckes, who took charge in hard circumstances after Carlo Ancelotti's departure, aims to match the treble he claimed in 2012-2013. Corentin Tolisso, James Rodriguez, Arjen Robben and Sandro Wagner scored as Bayern came from behind to move an unassailable 20 points ahead of Schalke with five rounds remaining.

Jupp Heynckes' team have now won a 6th straight Bundesliga title (similar to Juve in the Italian Serie A) as one of their Mvp's on the season was Robert Lewandowski who scored 26 goals in 26 Bundesliga games.

Ribery celebrated his 35th birthday with a cameo appearance for the final eight minutes before Wagner headed in Bayern's fourth.

With the league title safely in the bag, Heynckes and Bayern can now focus on trying to replicate the fine 2013 treble achievement. The last time it clinched the title in front of its own fans was in 2000 when the club was still playing at Munich's Olympiastadion.

Looking slightly beyond that, Bayern are also on the lookout for a new manager for next season, with Heynckes confirming that he will leave once against at the end of this campaign. "Everyone delivered great work".

That decision looked to have backfired as Niklas Sule's 18th-minute own goal gave Augsburg the lead, but two goals in quick succession swung the game in Bayern's favour.

However, Munich were 2-1 up by the time half-time came when Joshua Kimmich's cross picked out Tolisso unmarked in the area to header Bayern level on 32 minutes.

He hooked the ball back into play at the far post for Robben to drill his shot inside the near post on 62 minutes.

Cologne captain Jonas Hector headed his side into an early lead, and Pablo De Blasis equalized to keep Mainz six points clear of host Cologne. Elsewhere, Bruno Labbadia claimed his first win since taking over at VfL Wolfsburg when they beat Freiburg 2-0 away with two goals from Daniel Didavi.
