The Bavarians have sealed the title with still five games remaining as they lead second-placed Schalke by 20 points.
Augsburg 1-4 Bayern Munich
For a record-extending 28th time, Bayern have been crowned national champions of Germany having thrashed Augsburg 4-1 away from home.
The champions were forced to come from behind as Niklas Sule scored an own goal headed past Sven Ulreich, however, two quick successive goals from Bayern turned the game on its head.
Corentin Tolisso and James Rodriguez scored within the space of just four minutes to hand Bayern the lead and set them on their way to three points.
In the second-half goals from Arjen Robben and Sandro Wagner rounded off proceedings as Jupp Heynckes’ side eventually cruised to their 23rd win of the season.
Reaction to the record
Bayern would have good chances at winning the premier league six times in a row with with that squad. The bundesliga wasn’t “easy” to win, it required constant performances.

Wonder if Bayern get bored of winning every year. Six in a row is ridiculous
