Bayern Munich wrapped up the Bundesliga title with three games to spare on Saturday, with a 3-1 Klassiker triumph over fierce rivals Borussia Dortmund seeing Die Roten over the line.
Dortmund needed to take at least a point at the Allianz Arena, but Bayern’s victory means they have now racked up a record-extending 10 straight top-flight titles.
Serge Gnabry’s terrific opener had the home fans rocking and he had a second ruled out prior to Robert Lewandowski doubling the lead.
Emre Can’s 52nd-minute penalty gave Dortmund a lifeline, albeit a brief one as Jamal Musiala rounded out the win seven minutes from time meaning the champagne corks could be popped for Bayern.
While the 2021-22 season has not entirely gone to plan, with Bayern falling well short in the DFB-Pokal and Champions League, they have once again dominated in the league.
Bayern’s 10-in-a-row feat, with those successes coming under six different coaches, is something that has never previously been achieved in any of Europe’s top five leagues.
It marks Julian Nagelsmann’s second trophy as a coach, but his first league title.
