Bayern Munich have won their eight consecutive Bundesliga title with a narrow 1-0 victory over Werder Bremen at the Weser Stadium to go 10 points clear of second-place Borussia Dortmund.
Polish captain, Robert Lewandowski scored the only goal of the match in the 43rd minutes, taking his season tally to 31.
The Bavarians completed a remarkable turnaround following the sack of Nicko Kovac and appointed Hansi Flick in November.
Bayern were reduced to 10 men after Canadian full-back Alphonsus Davies received his second yellow of the game in the 79th minutes but still held on to win the match.
Hansi Flick took over and led the team to 19 wins from 22 Bundesliga games to leave the opposition trailing in their wake.
Bayern have now won 30 German titles with 29 coming in the Bundesliga era.
At the other end of the table, Jamilu Collins’ Paderborn were relegated from the Bundesliga after a 1-0 defeat at Union Berlin on Tuesday.
The result left Paderborn bottom of the table on 20 points with two games to play, eight points adrift of the relegation playoff spot occupied by Fortuna Duesseldorf.
Union Berlin are safe after climbing up to 12th on 38 points.
Paderborn needed to win to keep their hopes of staying in the top flight alive, but they never threatened with a comeback.
Collins have played 30 matches this season in all competition for Paderborn, scoring one goal with two assists.
