Bayern Munich lifts Bundesliga trophy

David Alaba douses Pep Guardiola with German ale as Bayern Munich ended their Bundesliga title by lifting the trophy and defeating relegated Hannover 3-1 as a final thought.

The European giants are ten points clear on top of the German top-division, and, having confirmed their place as champions, have a few remaining games that were little more than formality.

Robert Lewandowski had a deflected shot which luckily wrong-footed Ron-Robert Zieler for the opener in the Allianz Arena, before Mario Gotze scored a brace.

Artur Sobiech then scored one as a consolation Hannover, but it did not dampen the festive mood in the stadium.

Lewandowski’s 12th minute strike was also his 30th Bundesliga goal of the season, and he became the first man to have reached the tally in 39 years as champions Bayern Munich beat Hannover in Pep Guardiola’s final league game in charge.

The Spaniard would take over at Manchester City next season, but still have the chance to secure a second domestic double after three seasons in charge as Bayern faces off against Borussia Dortmund next weekend.

But Bayern had been unable to secure a Champions League under Guardiola, which would have “completed” his list of honours with the German Champions. They were in sight of the trophy, but was stopped short by Atletico Madrid in the semi-final.
