STORY: Treble-chasing Bayern Munich won a third straight Bundesliga title after VfL Wolfsburg lost at Borussia Moenchengladbach on Sunday (April 26) to leave the champions with an unassailable 15-point lead with four games left.

Bayern, who have now claimed a total of 25 German league titles including one before the Bundesliga’s creation in 1963, beat Hertha Berlin 1-0 on Saturday (April 25 but had to put the champagne on ice until after second-placed Wolfsburg’s game on Sunday.

Gladbach’s Max Kruse scored the winner in the 90th minute for a 1-0 victory that ended any mathematical chance of Wolfsburg catching the Bavarians.

The Bundesliga title is the second for Bayern coach Pep Guardiola in his second season at the club, as he chases a repeat of the treble they won months before he arrived in 2013.

Bayern, domestic double winners last season, face Barcelona in the Champions League semi-finals and have also reached the German Cup last four where they take on Borussia Dortmund on Tuesday (April 28).

Despite being plagued by injuries to key players throughout the season, including Bastian Schweinsteiger, Franck Ribery and Philipp Lahm, Bayern showed nerves of steel as they dismantled any domestic opposition in the league.

They have lost twice so far and conceded 13 goals in 30 matches, a record for this stage of the Bundesliga.
