Borussia Dortmund won their second consecutive Bundesliga title on Saturday night and eighth overall.

Coach Juergen Klopp and his young team have taken the league by storm this season and clinched the title with two games remaining when Ivan Perisic and Shinji Kagawa scored in each half for a 2-0 home win over Borussia Monchengladbach.

Dortmund will now set their sights on a double winning season when they face rivals Bayern Munich in the German Cup final on May 12.

Dortmund have an unassailable eight point lead over Bayern who beat Werder Bremen and are assured the runners up spot.

The battle for third place and the last direct champions league qualification spot is well and truly on between MonchenGladbach and Schalke, who can tighten their grip on the position with victory over Augsburg on Sunday.
