Bayern beat Frankfurt to win 7 consecutive Bundesliga title

German Bundesliga By: Ikponmwosa Umweni | 18/05/2019

Bayern Munich humbles Eintracht Frankfurt 5-1 at Allianz Arena on the final day of the season to secure a seventh consecutive Bundesliga title.

Borussia Dortmund's 2-0 win over Borussia Mönchengladbach ensured that Bayern had to pick up all three points to avoid leaving the title race up to goal difference.

And it took Bayern Munich less than four minutes to break the deadlock at the Allianz Arena, with Kingsley Coman kick-starting their title party by finding acres of space before sending a cool finish past an in-form Kevin Trapp.

After seeing some shots kept out of the back of the net, Gnabry finally found a way past Frankfurt's goalkeeper but his stunning left-footed effort was ruled out by the Video Assistant Referee for an earlier offside.

Bayern Munich were made to pay for their missed chances in the first half when half-time substitute Sébastien Haller levelled the scoreline just five minutes after the break.

But within the blink of an eye, David Alaba restored the hosts' lead after goalkeeper Trapp fumbled Thomas Müller's long-range effort, allowing the Austrian to poke the ball into an empty net from six yards out.

Their lead was doubled soon after when Renato Sanches fired a shot past Trapp from close range to open his account in the Bundesliga, all but securing all three points and the league title in the process.

Substitutes Franck Ribéry and Arjen Robben then crowned their last ever game at the Allianz Arena with a goal apiece in the closing stages of the match, with the former's proving to be the pick of the bunch on Saturday.
