Bayern Munich made history on Saturday by becoming the first team to lift five Bundesliga titles in a row. 

Their 27th top flight trophy in total was sealed with a 0-6 victory in Wolfsburg that was as imperious as their entire season.

Carlo Ancelotti, who has now won league titles in four of Europe's 'big five' leagues, has continued the work of predecessors Pep Guardiola and Jupp Heynckes to lift the league trophy as a manager in a season that has only seen the Bavarians defeated twice in 31 outings so far.

Despite drawing two games prior to the rout in Wolfsburg, Ancelotti's side knew their lead at the top of Germany's top tier would become unassailable for surprise package RB Leipzig with a win in Saturday's fixture.

The league's top scorer Robert Lewandowski bagged two, while Thomas Muller, Arjen Robben and Joshua Kimmich all netted. David Alaba, however, perhaps scored the pick of the bunch with an inch-perfect free kick, as Bayern ensured they crossed the finishing line in supreme style.

 

With just three games left to play, Bayern now boast a 10 point lead over nearest challengers Leipzig, and the success has helped fans recover from a disappointing Champions League campaign, where they lost to Real Madrid at the quarter final stage. 

Bayern posted several videos of their stars enjoying the historic title on Twitter, after the final whistle.
