Bayern Munich has been crowned Bundesliga kings for 8 consecutive time following a 1-0 win over relegation-threatened Werder Bremen.
Robert Lewandowski scored the only goal for Munich to take his tally to 31, the best in a single season.
With just 3 minutes remaining to half time, there came heartbreak for the hosts as they could not see it out until the first-half whistle. All their good work was underdone as they failed to fully clear the free-kick and as Boateng worked the ball back into the box, Robert Lewandowski got clear to finish off his 31 Bundesliga goal of the season!
The officials had a quick look at this as Lewandowski was very tight with the last defender but the goal stood.
This result means they have taken 58 points from a possible 66, yet their season is far from over.
The glory now gives Bayern the opportunity of securing a domestic double against Leverkusen in the DFB-Pokal final as well as challenging in the Champions League when its return is confirmed.
MULLER, THE ULTIMATE Assisting HAND
Thomas Muller was the World Cup’s Golden Boot winner with Germany in 2010 and has been a regular goal hero for Bayern for over a decade, but there is more about him than an assured finish.
The 30-year-old has become king of the assists in the Bundesliga this term, racking up 20 to match the highest total achieved since data collection began in 1992-93.
Opta statistics showed that Muller drew level with the total set by Kevin De Bruyne for Wolfsburg in the 2014-15 season.
Bayern Munich Ground breaking Records
Bayern’s dominance reached a new peak as they extended their streak to eight successive Bundesliga triumphs.
A record 30th title looked in doubt back in the European autumn as they stuttered, but they have sauntered to glory with two games to spare.
Borussia Monchengladbach (1975-77) and Bayern themselves (1972-74, 1985-87, 1999-2001) had previously achieved three in a row, but this era of dominance by one team is unprecedented in Germany.
Bayern scored 93 goals in their 32 Bundesliga games, setting a new league best. That teed up a shot at the 34-game complete league record of 101 goals, set by Bayern in 1971-72.
Their haul of 132 goals in 45 games across all competitions is also a record by a German team.
Bayern have scored at least four goals in a game 12 times, a figure last achieved by Stuttgart in the 1996-97 season. Bayern own the record in this respect with the 13 occasions they achieved the feat in 1973-74.
Robert LEWANDOWSKI Bundesliga Records
Lewandowski’s goals have provided the fuel behind Bayern’s surge over the second half of the season.
The Poland striker has recorded his best haul of 31 Bundesliga goals and notched 46 across in competitions, a personal high point in his Bayern career.
Nine league titles at one club Stats
•David Alaba and Thomas Muller win their ninth Bundesliga championship title, equalling the record set by Franck Ribery last season.
•Hansi Flick is the third person to win the Bundesliga title for Bayern both as a player and a manager, after Franz Beckenbauer and Niko Kovac. Flick won the Bundesliga title as a Bayern player in 1985-86, 1986-87, 1988-89 and 1989-90.
•In Europe’s top five leagues, only Juventus (35 in Serie A) and Real Madrid (33 in La Liga) have won more league titles than Bayern (30, including pre-Bundesliga era).
BAYERN Revival by FLICK
Across all competitions, head coach Flick won a startling 26 of his first 29 games in charge, the best start by any Bayern boss, beating Pep Guardiola’s 22 in 27.
Kovac lost his job after winning five of the opening 10 Bundesliga games this season, with three draws and two defeats.
The required standard is higher than that Bayern, but Flick’s success to date has surpassed all expectations.
