BAY­ERN CLAIM BUN­DESLIGA TI­TLE

The National - News - Sport - - PREMIER LEAGUE -

Bay­ern Mu­nich have clinched their fifth suc­ces­sive Bun­desliga ti­tle thanks to a com­bi­na­tion of their 6-0 vic­tory at Wolfs­burg and RB Leipzig fail­ing to win. Sec­ond­placed Leipzig had played out a goal­less draw with In­gol­stadt and that meant if Bay­ern were tri­umphant in yes­ter­day’s late game in Ger­many they would take the ti­tle in Carlo Ancelotti’s first sea­son in charge. It took them 19 min­utes to take the lead as David Alaba found the net, and Robert Le­wandowski scored twice be­fore the in­ter­val to en­sure the cel­e­bra­tions could be­gin early. Bay­ern did not let up in the sec­ond half and Ar­jen Robben added a fourth, be­fore goals in the fi­nal 10 min­utes from Thomas Muller and Joshua Kim­mich com­pleted the rout.
