Bayern captures fifth straight Bundesliga crown

FOOTBALL: Bayern Munich has won its fifth straight Bundesliga title following a 6-1 thrashing of Wolfsburg.

RB Leipzig's 0-0 draw with Ingolstadt left it 10 poingts adrift of the leaders with only three games and nine points available.

Robert Lewandowksi scored twice in Bayern's victory with club chairman left astounded by the team's achievements.

"Five times in a row, that's unbelievable. We completely deserve to be champions," the former German international told Sky.

Carlo Ancelotti has delivered a 27th league title in his first season as Bayern's head coach.

"I am very happy, this win was important and it's a fantastic experience," said the Italian.

Ancelotti has now won four national league titles after also lifting the English Premier League with Chelsea, Serie A with AC Milan and Ligue 1 with Paris Saint Germain.

"I want to thank this great club," he said.

"We deserved the title and have played good football, now is the time to celebrate."
