Bayern Win Sixth Successive Bundesliga Title


Bayern Munich came from behind at Augsburg to win their sixth consecutive Bundesliga title on Saturday. The Bavarians had been behind after a Niklas Sule own goal before goals from Corentin Tolisso, James Rodriguez, Arjen Robben and Sandro Wagner won the game.

Arjen Robben converted Rodriguez's cut-back and Sandro Wagner headed a fourth. Treble-chasing Bayern rested a host of players with Wednesday's Champions League quarter-final second leg against Sevilla in mind. Robert Lewandowski, Thomas Muller, Thiago, Franck Ribery, Mats Hummels and Javi Martinez were all on the bench.

They had looked in trouble when Sven Ulreich's parried save hit Sule and flew into their own net. But Tolisso headed in Joshua Kimmich's cross and Rodriguez then smashed home from close range.

Robben's powerful third - his 95th Bundesliga goal - confirmed the victory - and Wagner completed the rout late on. recalls that Bayern Munich have never won a Bundesliga title at home since their move to the Allianz Arena in 2005. They have also not won it home since 2000.
