Bundesliga giant Bayern Munich has been graced with yet another league title, which was captured when VfL Wolfsburg succumbed to defeat at the hands of Borussia Monchengladbach earlier today.

On Saturday, FCB beat Hertha BSC, 1-0, off Bastian Schweinsteiger’s late score, but they needed help to officially secure the league crown.

Max Kruse’s last-minute score handed the Foals the 1-0 result, and Wolfsburg’s aims of contesting the top spot ended abruptly.

In second place with 61 points, Wolfsburg is now fifteen points behind Bayern, while Monchengladbach is currently nineteen points back with the victory.

Bayern chairman Karl-Heinz Rummenigge is more than happy with his crew’s status.

Per BBC Sport:

“Retaining the title is a magnificent achievement. All credit to the coach and the team. They’ve been fantastic throughout, in a season following a World Cup where we had a host of players in action

“We’ll have a magnificent party at some stage, no worries. But all in good time. When we do, it’ll be a huge celebration.”

The Bavarians’ season is by no means over, since their Champions League semifinal against Barcelona, along with the impending German Cup, have yet to take place. And without a Champions League crown, Bayern’s success will undergo scrutiny due to the lofty expectations attributed to the team full of talented German nationals.
