Bayern Munich became the first team to clinch the domestic title this season in Europe’s Big Five leagues. Bavarians grabbed their 6th consecutive Bundesliga title with 4-1 victory over Augsburg.
The record 27-time German champions were denied their 28th title celebration at home last weekend. They would have loved to celebrate the title at home with their 7-0 victory over their biggest competitor Borussia Dortmund, but Schalke 2-0 victory over Freiburg delayed their tile celebration.
Bavarians roared once again away from home winning 4-1 against Augsburg. However, there were minor hiccups as they trail 1-0 initially from Nicolas Sule’s own goal. it took half an hour for the German champion to break the deadlock. Injury returning Corentin Tolisso opened the scoring for Bayern and five minutes later James Rodriguez gave them a 2-1 lead.

James Rodriguez continuing on to his good form provided another assist. He did very well to keep a ball into play and Robben slotted in a very good strike in the 62nd minute. Although Colombian was pulled off quickly, he got a standing ovation at the time of leaving the pitch. He has four goals and six assists to his name in last seven games.
With two minutes left in the normal time of play, Sandro Wagner grabbed Bayern’s fourth. It was a title-clinching victory for Bayern despite resting first team players. Robert Lewandowski, Thomas Muller, Thiago Alcantara, Franck Ribery, Mats Hummels, and Javi Martinez, all were on the bench to keep them fit for Champions League second-leg game against Sevilla in midweek.
However, Bayern have little concern about Sevilla as they already lead 2-1 from their away fixture. And, Sevilla didn’t enjoy a very good outing against Celta Vigo in their La Liga game. They lost 4-0 away against Celta Vigo. It will allow Bayern Munich to forget about next game and celebrate for the time being their 6th consecutive Bundesliga title. Their treble fight is also on as they clinch Bundesliga, they are in the DFB-Pokal semifinal and a foot in Uefa Champions League semifinal.
The 72-year-old manager Jupp Heynckes may win his second treble before finally saying goodbye to his coaching career. Heynckes retire before when he won trouble for Bayern in 2012/13 season, but he was forced to make a comeback this season when Bayern struggled under Carlo Ancelotti.
