BREAKING!! Bayern Munich Win Seventh Consecutive Bundesliga Title
Bayern Munich have been crowned Bundesliga champions for the seventh time in a row after beating Eintracht Frankfurt in the last game of the season.
Niko Kovac’s team held a two-point lead at the top of the German top flight heading into matchday 34 and a superior goal difference to Borussia Dortmund, meaning a draw would have been enough to seal the crown even if their nearest challengers won at Borussia Monchengladbach.
But there was very little doubt Allianz Arena, as the reigning champions wasted little time in getting their advantage with Kingsley Coman scoring just four minutes into the contest.
There was a momentary worry as late in the first half a Serge Gnabry goal was ruled out after VAR review, while Frankfurt found an equaliser early in the second half through Sebastien Haller.
With Dortmund leading through Jadon Sancho, another Frankfurt goal without Bayern reply would have put the champions under threat.
But just three minutes after Haller’s equaliser, David Alaba found the back of the net to restore the advantage and Bayern never looked back.
While Dortmund would add another through Marco Reus to go on to win 2-0, Renato Sanches made it 3-1 five minutes Alaba’s finish to all but lock down the Bayern victory.
Bayern enjoyed a pair of sentimental sendoffs after, as Franck Ribery, in his last game with the club, scored the squad’s fourth goal.
His long-time team-mate Arjen Robben, also in his final game for the Bundesliga giants, found the net for Bayern’s fifth.
The pair have been on the squad for each of Bayern’s seven straight titles.
It is the 28th time the Bavarian giants have lifted the title, having overcome a rough start to the season to get back on top of the division, dropping points in six of their first 12 games to drop nine points behind Dortmund.
