Jupp Heynckes' side defeated Augsburg 4-1 away to seal its record 28th German championship, including the solitary pre-Bundesliga title in 1931-32.

Bayern Munich beat Augsburg 4-1 in an away match in the league and announced their title.

The result leaves Bayern 20 points clear with five league games left and underlined their total dominance of the Bundesliga.

It was Heynckes's fourth Bundesliga title as coach, all with Bayern.

REAL MADRID boss Zinedine Zidane would be a flawless fit for Bayern Munich, according to club legend Oliver Kahn.

Heynckes could yet cap a fairytale return by winning the European Cup for the sixth time in Bayern's history in the Champions League final in Kiev on May 26.

"It's a special moment, because we now know we're champions", said Ribery, who has now won the Bundesliga eight times since joining in 2007.

"We'll find an opportunity to celebrate later and do it hard!"

Goals from Corentin Tolisso, James Rodriguez, Arjen Robben & Sandro Wagner handed Jupp Heynckes' outfit their sixth consecutive top-flight championship crown during the all Bavarian affair; on a day where the 72-year-old manager equalled Otto Rehhagel's record of 1,033 appearances as both player and coach in the competition.

"I think he is not only a great coach but also a great person".

Cordova's shot was blocked by Bayern goalkeeper Sven Ulreich, but the ball ricocheted into Suele's face and into Bayern's goal to stun the visitors on 18 minutes.

Bayern equalised out of the blue when Tolisso was left unmarked to head in from Joshua Kimmich's cross in the 32nd minute and the Bavarians took the game by the scruff of the neck.

Hunt let fly from around 25 meters inside the top right corner to lift Hamburg off the bottom and end Schalke's six-game winning run.

Thorgan Hazard, the younger brother of Chelsea's Eden, came off the bench to score twice as Borussia Moenchengladbach climbed to eighth with a 2-1 win at home to Hertha Berlin.
