Treble-chasing Bayern Munich claimed a third straight Bundesliga title on Sunday without kicking a ball after Wolfsburg’s 1-0 defeat at Borussia Mönchengladbach meant they had an unassailable 15-point lead with four games left.

Bayern, who have now won a total of 25 German league titles including one before the Bundesliga’s creation in 1963, beat Hertha Berlin 1-0 on Saturday but had to put the champagne on ice until after second-placed Wolfsburg’s game on Sunday.
