Bayern Munich wins record 5th Straight Bundesliga Title
It has been another season of domestic dominance for Bayern Munich, who wrapped up their 27th championship with three games to go following a thumping win over Wolfsburg. They thrashed Wolfsburg 6-0 to clinch the Bundesliga for a record fifth straight season and give manager Carlo Ancelotti a title in a fourth top European league.
Ancelotti’s side have lost just twice in the league all season and were never troubled by out-of-sorts Wolfsburg.
Austrian left-back David Alaba fired Bayern ahead from a free-kick with Poland striker Robert Lewandowski scoring twice before half-time while Arjen Robben added a trademark shot after cutting in from the right.
Wolfsburg captain Luiz Gustavo was sent off against his former club late on and had to be restrained by team-mates after sarcastically applauding the referee before Thomas Muller tapped in a fifth.
Bayern have now scored 79 times while conceding just 17, comprehensively leading the league on both fronts.
With Saturday’s win, Ancelotti becomes the first manager to win titles in four of ‘the big five’ leagues after adding Bayern’s championship to honours won with AC Milan, Chelsea and Paris St-Germain.
With Champions League titles won with both Milan and Real Madrid, the next step for Bayern and Ancelotti will be a sixth European crown.
