Toni Kroos and Mario Gotze netted inside the first 15 minutes to put Pep Guardiola's men on their way.

Although Adrian Ramos pulled a goal back from the penalty spot midway through the second half, Franck Ribery's 79th-minute goal wrapped up the win in style and gave them the crown with seven games to spare.

Bayern would have been celebrating even had they lost, as the clash between local rivals Borussia Dortmund and Schalke ended goalless.

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, bottom club Eintracht Braunschweig picked up a crucial three points with victory over European hopefuls Mainz - again by 3-1.

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.

Mainz, who would have gone joint fourth with victory, remain seventh as a result of this setback.

f Klopp is available and willing to go there, they have to sign him up. Far better manager than Rodgers. The reason Liverpool fail in so many big games is the inflexible nature of their manager and his inability to find strikers who fit into his inflexible style of play. A feature of nearly every game that the team comes up short is the way the opposition midfield appears to overpower them. It's too easy.

est player award should not go to a player who's second best at all the importent categories (i.e goals, assists etc) just because his team is at the top. If you are not first you are last; if you're second you are the first loser ( looking at you Hazard). David De Gea for POTY.
