Two goals in three first-half min­utes from Harry Wil­son and an Alex Smithies own goal set Hull on their way be­fore sub­sti­tute Kamil Grosicki and Abel Her­nan­dez rounded off an em­phatic per­for­mance. be­fore Steve Mori­son added a sec­ond shortly af­ter half-time. BAY­ERN Mu­nich clinched the Bun­desliga ti­tle with a 4-1 win at Augs­burg yesterday.

Coach Jupp Heynckes rested sev­eral key play­ers and saw his side fall 1-0 be­hind through Nik­las Sule’s own goal. But Corentin Tolisso’s header and a cool fin­ish from James Ro­driguez turned the game around.

Ar­jen Robben made the game safe just af­ter the hour and San­dro Wag­ner added a late fourth as the cel­e­bra­tions started for Bay­ern’s record 28th topflight ti­tle and sixth in suc­ces­sion.
