Bayern Munich are Bundesliga champions again

German Bundesliga By: Ikponmwosa Umweni | 07/04/2018

Bayern Munich continued their Bundesliga dominance with a sixth straight title after coming from behind to win 4-1 at Bavarian neighbours Augsburg on Saturday.

Bayern recovered from conceding an early bizarre own-goal to wrap up the championship in style at the WWK Arena and delivered a 28th German league title for Bavarian.

The home side made a positive start as Brazilian midfielder Caiuby's angled drive was just wide after being played in on the left.

On 16 minutes, Philipp Max saw his shot strike the outside of the post, but the offside flag was up. Augsburg, though, were soon in front.

Augsburg had taken a shock lead on 18 minutes defender Jerome Boateng was caught in possession by Cordova, who darted into the Bayern penalty area and forced Ulreich into a smart save with his feet but bounced up into the face of Niklas Sule and rolled into the empty net.

Bayern equalize after 32 minutes when midfielder Tolisso nodded in after a deep cross in from the right by Joshua Kimmich.

The defender then almost scored himself with a close-range header, but this time Augsburg keeper Marwin Hitz was equal to it.

Bayern took the lead seven minutes before half-time as Kimmich was involved, taking a pass from Robben before whipping the ball into the penalty area, where Juan Bernat played a clever back-heel out to Rodriguez who lashed the ball inside the far post to make 2-1 for the away team.

Kimmich was denied by another good stop from Hitz as Bayern finished the half on top.

The title was secure on 62 minutes when Robben crashed in a third as Rodriguez hooked the ball back out to the edge of the penalty area after a free-kick had not been cleared.

January signing Wagner put the icing on the cake with three minutes remaining when he headed in from a corner.

Up next for Bayern Munich is next week's second leg of their Champions League quarter-final against Sevilla
