Bayern Munich win 7th consecutive Bundesliga title

The reigning champions have fended off a fierce challenge from Dortmund after securing a 5-1 victory over Niko Kovac’s former club.

Bayern Munich have been crowned Bundesliga champions for the seventh time in a row after beating Eintracht Frankfurt in the last game of the season.

Niko Kovac’s team held a two-point lead at the top of the German top flight heading into matchday 34 and a superior goal difference to Borussia Dortmund, meaning a draw would have been enough to seal the crown even if their nearest challengers won at Borussia Monchengladbach.

But there was very little doubt Allianz Arena, as the reigning champions wasted little time in getting their advantage with Kingsley Coman scoring just four minutes into the contest.

There was a momentary worry as late in the first half a Serge Gnabry goal was ruled out after VAR review, while Frankfurt found an equaliser early in the second half through Sebastien Haller.

With Dortmund leading through Jadon Sancho, another Frankfurt goal without Bayern reply would have put the champions under threat.

But just three minutes after Haller’s equaliser, David Alaba found the back of the net to restore the advantage and Bayern never looked back.

Kovac will have the opportunity to seal his debut as Bayern boss with a domestic double as his squad face RB Leipzig in the DFB-Pokal final on May 25.

However, Goal and Spox understand that is unlikely to be enough to save his job.

CONGRATULATIONS TO THE MUNICH MEN…… SEVEN CONSECUTIVE BUNDESLIGA TITLE? WE ARE SURE DORTMUND POSES NO THREAT AT THE MOMENT AS THIS DOMINATION HAS BEEN ON FOR DECADES.
