Bayern Munich 6-0 Borussia Moenchengladbach: Bavarians celebrate ninth successive Bundesliga title in style as Robert Lewandowski bags hat-trick

A hat-trick for Robert Lewandowski takes him to one goal shy of the all-time single-season Bundesliga goal record – and helps

Bayern Munich deliver an emphatic coronation for their latest Bundesliga title in glorious fashion against Borussia Monchengladbach.

Hansi Flick’s reign claims another honour in his final season – and his striker sits on the cusp of history. Full-time at Allianz Arena, it finishes Bayern Munich 6-0 Borussia Monchengladbach.

The champions had sealed the title before kickoff following RB Leipzig’s 3-2 defeat at Borussia Dortmund earlier on Saturday.

Lewandowski, who now has 39 goals, one shy of Gerd Mueller’s imposing record of 40 league goals in one Bundesliga season dating back to 1971/72, needed only two minutes to open his account with a shot from a tight angle.

There was no Ballon d’Or last season, when the Pole arguably was the frontrunner – but can Robert Lewandowski break the hold of Lionel Messi and Cristiano Ronaldo this time around? His record-breaking feats are surely worthy of recognition.

But the night belongs to him and his team. They are champions of Germany again, with games to spare too.

Thomas Muller, who along with David Alaba becomes the first player in Bundesliga history to win 10 league titles, stabbed in their second in the 23rd before a sensational flying Lewandowski volley 11 minutes later.

With Gladbach in the role of mere observers, Lewandowski then set up Kingsley Coman, who wrapped up a quick break with a powerful shot a minute from halftime.

Lewandowski sent keeper Yann Sommer the wrong way to convert a 66th minute penalty for his hat-trick and a clear shot at Mueller’s record with two games left.

Tanguy Nianzou was sent off in the 75th with a straight red card for a rustic challenge five minutes after coming on, but even with 10 men Bayern scored again, with Leroy Sane slotting in four minutes from the end.

Bayern, who have now won 30 Bundesliga titles since the introduction of the top division in 1963, and 31 German league crowns in total, are on 74 points, with Leipzig in second on 64 following their 3-2 loss at Dortmund, who move up to fourth.

Bayern may have enjoyed less success this season than their astonishing six-trophy run in 2019-20, but they have remained the most consistent team in the league led by Lewandowski.

Hansi Flick has conquered all fronts since he took charge. He will be a hard act to follow.

There’s still two games to go this season though, and both will be back in action next weekend. Gladbach will play host to Stuttgart – and Bayern make the trip to Freiburg.

It is also the second consecutive league crown for coach Hansi Flick, who is leaving Bayern at the end of the season and will be replaced by Julian Nagelsmann.
