Bayern Munich win six consecutive Bundesliga crown

MUNICH, Germany: Bayern Munich were crowned Bundesliga champions for the sixth consecutive season on Saturday as James Rodriguez helped turn the game in their 4-1 comeback victory at Augsburg.

"I'd like to send my best wishes to Carlo Ancelotti in Italy. This title is also for him. He is a fantastic coach," said Bayern coach Jupp Heynckes. "This title is everyone's doing. First and foremost, it's the player who have made it happen. It's very special to become German champions"  

Augsburg took a shock lead through an own0goal by Niklas Suele, but Bayern roared back as Corentin Tolisso, James and Sandro Wagner all scored.

"It is always a special moment. We work hard to be able to celebrate the title with the fans. Jupp gives the whole team a fantastic feeling," said Franc Ribery. 

The result leaves Bayern 20 points clear with five league games left and underlined their absolute dominance of the Bundesliga.

"Congratulations on the sixth German Championship in a row. Great match and a completely deserved title," tweeted former captain Philipp Lahm.
