Leipzig draw paves way for Bayern Munich to win title at Wolfsburg

Bayern Munich 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.

Whether it's Robert Lewandowski (he scored two) hitting the 40-goal mark with brilliant finishing, incredible interplay through the midfield, mazing runs from Arjen Robben or Alaba hitting gorgeous free kicks, Bayern are a joy to watch.

No German side had won more than three titles in a row before Bayern made it four a year ago.

Despite the title success, Ancelotti knows his first season in Bavaria will be overshadowed by Bayern's Champions League quarter-final defeat to Real Madrid and German Cup semi-final loss at home to Borussia Dortmund. The debutant of the elite of German football confidently entrenched in the second place in the standings after 30 rounds, having in his active 62 points with goal difference 56-31 and guaranteed start in the Champions League.

"I am lucky to be here with these great players and the fans who have supported us so fantastically all season".

Captain Philipp Lahm, who retires this summer, can now look forward to lifting the Bundesliga trophy for the eighth time.

"We completely deserve to be champions", Bayern's chairman Karl-Heinz Rummenigge told Sky after the club secured their 27th league title.

The second half was exactly the same as the first as the visitors nearly made it four just after the restart when Alaba hit a shot towards goal but the ball came back off the bar.

A thundering finish from the angle from Joshua Kimmich applied the finishing touches with the final goal of the evening on 85 minutes.

Bayern finished off the relegation-threatened Wolves with three more goals in the second half, when the hosts were reduced to 10 men following the dismissal of former Bayern player Luiz Gustavo.

Playing the late game, Bayern was already seven points clear of second-placed Leipzig ahead of its visit to Wolfsburg.

Borussia Dortmund are a further six points behind in third place after they also drew 0-0, against Cologne.

Leipzig to the home game comes up with a series of 5 unbeaten matches, gaining 13 points in these matches. It's a really special game for me, but for the team and our club, it's just one of the seventeen other Bundesliga clubs.

Darmstadt claimed a 3-0 win at home to Freiburg courtesy of goals from Felix Platte in the 22nd minute, Jerome Gondorf in the 45th and Sven Schipplock in the 65th.
