David Alaba was among the goal scorers as Bundesliga champions Bayern Munich eased past Borussia Monchengladbach after recovering from falling behind to beat their opponents 5-1 on Saturday.

Bayern, who announced on Friday that their former midfielder and current Eintracht Frankfurt coach Niko Kovac will become their new manager in the summer, have walked to another league title and were good value for this 5-1 win.

With the news that Jupp Heynckes will leave the position as manager, his players marked the new appointment in style as Sandro Wagner grabbed a brace to cancel out Josip Drmic's ninth-minute opener for Monchengladbach.

Thiago, David Alaba and Robert Lewandowski added the gloss in the second half at the Allianz Arena to send Bayern 23 points clear at the summit.

The defeat leaves Monchengladbach's hopes of Europa League qualification up in the air as they now sit six points behind sixth-placed Eintracht.
