Bayern Munich have won the Bundesliga for a record fifth consecutive time, following their dominant 6-0 win at Wolfsburg.

The 26th league shield is Bayern Munich’s only major silverware in Carlo Ancelotti’s debut season with the Bavarians.


 

Bayern were three up at the break, with David Alaba firing into the top corner to open the scoring in style after 19 minutes.

 

Star striker Robert Lewandowski then took over, making it 2-0 after 37 minutes with a fine finish from Thomas Muller’s pass and adding a third in the final minute of the first half.

 

Arjen Robben made it four after 66 minutes, firing low into the corner from outside the area, and after the home side’s Luiz Gustavo was sent off for a second yellow, Lewandowski set up Muller to make it five.

 

Josua Kimmich added the sixth, putting the icing on the cake with five minutes remaining after Robben picked him out with a low cross.

 

Second-placed RB Leipzig had earlier been held to a 0-0 home draw by relegation-threatened Ingolstadt.
