Bayern clinch 10th successive Bundesliga title

Bayern Munich snatched the German Bundesliga title for the tenth time in a row on Saturday evening, after beating Borussia Dortmund 3-1.

The victory over second-placed Dortmund opened a 12-point difference with only three games remaining.

Serge Gnabry opened the scoring for Julian Nagelsmann’s side with a shot, before Robert Lewandowski added a second.

Dortmund reduced the difference to half at the beginning of the second half, but Jamal Musiyala won it for Bayern late with the third goal.

This is Bayern’s 32nd league title, making it one of the most successful European teams in history.

The win lifted their unbeaten run to nine matches and only four defeats in the league this season.

No European team has achieved this feat, in any of Europe’s top five leagues.

Juventus, Lyon, Real Madrid and Manchester United all boast the longest stints as champions in Serie A, France and Spain respectively.
