Bayern Munich thrash Wolfsburg to win fifth straight Bundesliga title

Bayern Munich have won a record fifth consecutive Bundesliga title after they swept aside Wolfsburg 6-0.

Leading goalscorer Robert Lewandowski netted twice to take his goal tally to 28 while David Alaba, Thomas Mueller, Arjen Robben and Joshua Kimmich also got on the score sheet for the Reds.

The win gives Munich an unassailable 10 point lead with three games remaining.

The Bavarians have now won 27 German titles.

Retiring Bayern captain Philip Lahm said: “It is amazing what this team did again this season in the Bundesliga. It is not a given that we will always march through the league like we did this season.”

“The league is the most honest of titles,” said Bayern CEO Karl-Heinz Rummenigge.

“And now we have won it for the fifth straight time. That is something unusual and amazing.”
