Bayern Munich secured a 10th consecutive Bundesliga title after victory over second-placed Borussia Dortmund in Der Klassiker.
Julian Nagelsmann’s side have once again dominated domestic rivals this season and opened a 12-point lead at the top with three games left after defeating them.

Serge Gnabry’s sublime touch and volley opened the scoring before Robert Lewandowski coolly added a second.
Emre Can’s penalty cut the lead but Jamal Musiala added a third late on.
The Bundesliga triumph comes at as a consolation for the Bavarian after their surprise Champions League exit to Villarreal.
Whilst they have been unable to replicate the success they enjoyed in winning Europe’s elite club competition in 2019-20, domestically Bayern remain untouchable.

Forward Thomas Muller, who became the first ever player to win 11 Bundesliga titles, said: “It was an opportunity to set the record straight. There has been a lot of frustration recently and it was an opportunity to let off steam. Now everything is wonderful.
“We really wanted to win it here. There was a lot of frustration in the past days and we could play it off today.

“This is not boring. This is outstanding. The more you win the greedier you get every year.”
In all, Bayern have won their previous five Bundesliga titles by a combined 64 points.
