Bayern win earliest Bundesliga title
Bayern Munich wrapped up their 24th Bundesliga title in record time with a 3-1 win at Hertha Berlin on Tuesday.
Toni Kroos and Mario Gotze scored inside the first 15 minutes to put Pep Guardiola's men on their way.
Although Adrian Ramos pulled a goal back for Hertha Berlin from the penalty spot midway through the second half, substitute Franck Ribery's 79th-minute goal wrapped up the win in style.
The result ensures Pep Guardiola's side wraps up the title with seven games to spare in the Spaniard's first season as coach, beating the mark set in last year's record-breaking campaign by one game.
It was also Bayern's 19th consecutive win, their 10th consecutive victory away from home, and stretched their unbeaten run to 52 games. All are Bundesliga records.
Bayern would have been celebrating even had they lost, as Borussia Dortund, who sit in second place 25 points behind Bayern, settled for a goalless draw at home against third-place Schalke.
Pride and second spot was up for grabs in the 144th Revierderby, but neither team could make a breakthrough.
In-form Wolfsburg enhanced their own top four hopes with a 3-1 win at Werder Bremen.
Junior Malanda and Ivan Perisic scored in the first 10 minutes to give the visitors control. Sebastien Prodl pulled a goal back six minutes later, but Maximilian Arnold made the points safe for Wolfsburg 10 minutes from time.
At the other end of the table, bottom club Eintracht Braunschweig picked up a crucial three points with a 3-1 victory over European hopefuls Mainz.
Dominick Kumbela's 18th minute goal gave Braunschweig the lead but Nicolai Muller levelled two minutes later. However, Havard Nielsen restored the home side's advantage just before the break, before Kumbela got his second and his team's third 13 minutes from time to move Braunschweig to within three points of safety.
