Bayern Munich were confirmed as Bundesliga champions for the ninth straight season Saturday after England winger Jadon Sancho netted twice in Borussia Dortmund’s 3-2 win over second-placed RB Leipzig.
The result in Dortmund meant Bayern become champions before their home game against Borussia Moenchengladbach on Saturday evening.
Bayern have now matched deposed Serie A kings Juventus for the longest streak of domestic championships won by teams from Europe’s top five leagues.
The latest championship success for Bayern means they have won the Bundesliga 30 times since the league was founded in 1963, with Dortmund and Gladbach next on the list with five titles each.
Bayern have a 16th title since 2000, underlining their growing domestic dominance, and stalwarts Thomas Muller and David Alaba have both been champions with the club 10 times, setting a new record.
