Bayern Munich have been crowned Bundesliga champions for the fifth season in a row, following their 6-0 win over Wolfsburg on Saturday. Coming on the back of a 1-1 draw with high-flying Hoffenheim, the BVB defeat allowed Bundesliga upstarts RB Leipzig to take hold of top spot, although it wouldn't take the champions long to reclaim the throne. The player expected to fill Philipp Lahm's sizeable boots next season, Joshua Kimmich, came to the fore with three goals in those two games, as well as his first worldwide goal for Germany in a 2018 FIFA World Cup qualifier against Norway.
Bremen maintained their stunning recent form, which now features nine wins and two draws from their last 11 league games and has transformed them from relegation battlers to contenders for Europe. Bayern are just one shy of a 50 percent hit-rate in Bundesliga's 54-season history, winning nearly every other year. We believe that the game will take place on a collision course, and without sharing goals in this time is completed, the defense now - obviously not the trump card of both teams. Now the "white-green" is located dangerously close to a group of outsiders, occupying 14th place and ahead of "Augsburg" just one point.
David Alaba opened the scoring for Bayern with a free kick won by Thomas Müller on top of the Wolfsburg penalty area.
"It is unbelievable what this team did again this season in the Bundesliga", said retiring Bayern captain Philipp Lahm. The home side's first three-win streak of the season means it can not be relegated this weekend.

Champions again. And with style, as per usual.
It represents what will be the final piece of silverware in Lahm's glittering career, with the 33-year-old World Cup victor set to retire at the end of the season.
Their late-season wobble, however, never really put their championship chances at risk with Ancelotti's team having done all the heavy lifting earlier in the campaign to make sure they remained the dominant force in Germany for yet another season. It would prove to be a turning point. "I think we did a good job this season". The game was set for a magnificent finale, and so it might have been had Vidal not been harshly dismissed on 84 minutes.
The league triumph is consolation for Wednesday's 3-2 German Cup semi-final defeat at home to Borussia Dortmund, which robbed coach Carlo Ancelotti the chance of emulating predecessor Pep Guardiola with the domestic double in his first season.
