Bayern Munich win sixth straight German Bundesliga title

Bayern Munich win sixth straight German Bundesliga title

Those misses ultimately mattered little, though, Wagner planting a powerful header into the top-right corner as Bayern celebrated its unprecedented sixth consecutive league title in style. Since 2000, Bayern Munich won 12 titles but not once were they able to win it in front of their fans!

Augsburg took a shock lead through an own goal by Niklas Suele, but the Bavarians roared back as Corentin Tolisso, James - who then assisted Arjen Robben - and Sandro Wagner all scored.

The French winger, who went on as a substitute, joined former Bayern players Oliver Kahn, Bastian Schweinsteiger, Mehmet Scholl and Philipp Lahm on a record eight Bundesliga titles.

With one eye on Wednesday's Champions League quarter-final second leg against Sevilla, in which Munich hold a slender 2-1 lead, coach Jupp Heynckes gambled by resting his stars.

Jets centre Adam Lowry played his junior hockey in Swift Current, a city that is far too familiar with tragedy. Ruschkowski said he was close with head coach Darcy Haugan and he will be missed in the hockey community.


"It was clear that we'd be German champions at some stage with the lead that we had, but at the time (assistant) Peter Hermann and I returned it wasn't foreseeable as we were five points behind and the team wasn't really functioning properly", Heynckes said.

"He's not only a great coach but a great person", Heynckes said. Cordova's shot was blocked by the Bayern goalkeeper but ricocheted off the hapless Suele's face and into the net.

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

He hooked the ball back into play at the far post for Robben to drill his shot inside the near post on 62 minutes. Jonas Hector gave Cologne an early lead but Pablo de Blasis levelled five minutes into the second half, leaving the Billy Goats six points adrift of safety in 17th place.
