Bayern Munich are Bundes Liga champions with 7 league games remaining

Bayern Munich clinched their 24th Bundesliga title with a 3-1 win over Hertha Berlin at the Olympic Stadium in Berlin on Tuesday evening.

The Bavarians secured their second successive German crown in record time, with seven league games still remaining.

Goals from Toni Kroos, Mario Götze and Franck Ribery extended Bayern’s unbeaten run in the league to 52games while they also recorded  their 19th consecutive win with victory at the Old Lady.

Pep Guardiola’s side subsequently stay on course to win their second successive treble.

Toni Kroos opened the scoring as early as the sixth minute, the ball fell favourably for the German midfielder inside the area, he made no mistake striking a powerful half-volley past Thomas Kraft.

Eight minutes later and it was 2-0 in favour of the visitors. A flowing passage of play that consisted of about 60 passes ended with Bastian Schweinsteiger picking out Götze with a neat dink over the defence, the former Borussia Dortmund midfielder nodding in from close range to bag his eighth goal of the campaign.

Mandzukic and David Alaba went close to extending the visitors lead early in the second stanza, but it was the Old Lady who scored next through Borussia Dortmund target Adrian Ramos.

The Colombian striker picked himself up after being fouled by Rafinha inside the area before calmly slotting the ball past Manuel Neuer from the penalty spot in the 66th minute.

Ribery sealed the three points in the 79th minute. Götze burst forward before playing in the Frenchman, who in turn dinked the keeper from an acute angle to send the Bavarian faithful into delirium, 3-1.

Bayern saw out the game without any problems as the record-breaking Germans started their celebrations.
