Bayern crowned as Bundesliga champions for the ninth straight time

Bayern Munich clinched its ninth consecutive Bundesliga title after second place RB Leipzig’s 3-2 defeat at Borussia Dortmund before thrashing Borussia Möenchengladbach 6-0 that put them 10 points clear of Bundesliga table with two games left to play. The Bavarians claimed their 31st German league title and their 30th Bundesliga crown, breaking their own record of having won more than three in a row.

“We knew one hour before the game that we were champions,” Lewandowski said after the win. “But for us it was more important to show on the pitch why we are champions and show the best football. What we did during the game was spectacular, it was amazing because we scored so many goals. We showed that we are the best this season.” Follow us for more live football match and odds.

Bayern kicked off their run of nine consecutive titles with a dominant 2012-13 season under legendary coach Jupp Heynckes before Pep Guardiola’s treble from 2013-14 to 2016-16 seasons. They extended their success until virus-hit season led by Hansi Flick. Under Flick, Bayern Bayern completed an historic second Treble of Bundesliga, DFB Pokal and Champions League last season.

The 2020-21 campaign also marks the end of an era at the Allianz Arena as David Alaba, Jerome Boateng, Javi Martinez, who enjoyed two Treble successes at the club as they were with Bayern when they achieved the same feat in 2013, are set to leave this summer. Alaba along with Thomas Muller also become the first players to win a 10th Meisterchale, one ahead of Javi Martinez and Frank Ribery.

“We celebrated a bit before the game,” Müller said at the final whistle. “It allowed us to play with a bit more freedom. We’ve been working hard for these last two weeks, we had to put the work in to get back to our best.” Robert Lewandowski, who has scored 39 times in their 32 league games so far, is set to break Gerd Muller’s all-time record of 40 league goals in a single season set in the 1971-72 campaign.

Meanwhile, head coach Flick will, who requested to have his contract terminated, will also be leaving the team this summer. Chief executive officer Karl-Heinz Rummenigge is also set to vacate his position in December 2021. Former Germany and Bayern captain Oliver Kahn is set to take over in the front office, while RB Leipzig coach Julian Nagelsmann set to replace Flick.

Nagelsmann, who will be Bayern’s fourth permanent coach since Guardiola left in June 2016, has agreed to a five-year contract beginning on July 1 as Bayern Munich head coach following a record deal that will make him the world’s most expensive manager, with RB Leipzig receiving compensation that could rise to €25m (£21.7m). His Leipzig side are currently second in Germany’s top flight.
