Munich (Germany) (AFP)
Bayern Munich sealed their ninth consecutive German league title on Saturday with a brutal 6-0 against Mönchengladbach (with a hat-trick from Lewandowski), which puts them ten points ahead of Leipzig with two days remaining.
In the early afternoon, the defeat of RB in Dortmund (3-2) had already mathematically offered the title to the Bavarians.
But the men of the coach Hansi Flick did not deviate so far, and shattered the "Colts" of Borussia (4-0 at the break).
Robert Lewandowski scored three times (1-0, 2nd, 3-0, 34th and 5-0, 66th from penalty), to now approach a length of a record that Germany believed to be eternal: the 40 goals made in 1971-72 by the legendary Gerd Müller.
It took a decisive intervention from international defender Matthias Ginter to prevent the Pole from scoring a quadruple in the 89th minute.
The best Fifa-2020 player has two games left to score at least once and match - or exceed - the "Bombardier of the Nation", considered by the Germans as the greatest striker in their history.
Thomas Müller (2-0, 23rd), Kingsley Coman (4-0, 44th) and Leroy Sané (6-0, 86th) scored the other two goals.
