Bayern Munich seal Bundesliga title after thrashing Wolfsburg 6-0

But when Bayern sealed a record-extending fifth consecutive Bundesliga crown on Saturday with a 6-0 demolition of VfL Wolfsburg, majority also breathed a big sigh of relief, knowing that the world was still in order.

While Wolfsburg offered no resistance on Saturday, the fact that a promoted side, Leipzig, was the one to push Ancelotti's team the hardest says a lot about the level of competition Bayern faces on a regular basis in the Bundesliga.

RB Leipzig's goalless draw with Ingolstadt earlier Saturday gave Carlo Ancelotti's side the chance to wrap up the title at the Volkswagen Arena with three games to spare.

After last week's disappointment of elimination from the Champions League at the hands of Real Madrid and losing to Borussia Dortmund in the German Cup semifinal, Bayern had only the Bundesliga title left to play for this season. He also led Milan and Real Madrid to Champions League titles.

Robben's low effort and Muller's predatory finish added to the rout after the break, before Joshua Kimmich ensured Bayern bettered the 5-0 win from December's reverse fixture.

"I would like to thank this fantastic club, I am lucky to be here with these great players and the fans, who have supported us all the season so fantastically". "In my 10 years at Bayern as a player I only managed to win two".

Bayern president Uli Hoeness has said just one title "is a bit too little" for a club that craves success, but chairman Karl-Heinz Rummenigge praised the record-extending achievement of a fifth straight title.

The Bavarian giants threatened to double their lead three minutes later, but Koen Casteels pulled off a fine double save as he palmed away Robert Lewandowski's strike from the edge of the area before denying Thomas Muller on the follow-up. "Now is the time to celebrate". "We deserved it because we played good football and were focused".

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

Hoffenheim, coached by Julian Nagelsmann, 29, the youngest coach in Bundesliga history, can leapfrog Dortmund if they beat Eintracht in Frankfurt on Sunday.

Bottom side Darmstadt again delayed their relegation with a 3-0 win at home to Freiburg.

Hertha Berlin's hopes of achieving that feat were all but ended by a 2-0 defeat at Werder Bremen, who are now just a point behind the capital club in sixth.
