Bayern Win 7th Straight Bundesliga

BY BBC 

Bayern Munich were crowned champions of Germany for the seventh successive season with a crushing 5-1 last-day victory over Eintracht Frankfurt.

Niko Kovac’s side, who trailed leaders Borussia Dortmund by nine points after 12 games, needed only a draw to secure a 29th Bundesliga title.

Kingsley Coman opened the scoring before Sebastien Haller equalised.

David Alaba, Renato Sanches, Franck Ribery and Arjen Robben made sure of Bayern’s victory at the Allianz Arena.

They finished two points ahead of Dortmund, who won 2-0 at Borussia Monchengladbach thanks to goals from England winger Jadon Sancho and Marco Reus.

It was fitting end to Bayern’s season as legends Robben and Ribery scored in what proved to be a procession to the title.

The pair – with 22 Bundesliga seasons, 185 goals and 15 titles between them – started from the bench alongside full-back Rafinha, who will also leave this summer.

Bayern players embraced Robben, Ribery and Sanches at the end of the match and they were given the honour of lifting the Meisterschale trophy by captain Manuel Neuer.

Bayern can complete the domestic double when they face RB Leipzig in the DFB Pokal final on 25 May.
