          A solo goal by marksman supreme Robert Lewandowski was enough to see Bayern Munich confirm their 29th Bundesliga title with a narrow 1-0 win against Werder Bremen at Weser Stadium.

          After an even first-half, Bayern Munich took the lead two minutes the break through Lewandowski's 31st goal in the Bundesliga this season, the Pole firing past Jiri Pavlenka. In the second-half, the German champions controlled the game, but saw Alphonso Davies sent off with 10 minutes left to play, leaving the Bavarians a man down for the remainder of the contest. 

          After seeing out victory, Bayern were left to celebrate their undoubted dominance in German football - their 8th title in a row meaning that they have now won more Bundesliga titles (29) than all the other German clubs put together (28).

          Crafty Flick 

          It may seem that this was a run of the mill title defence for Bayern, but it was far from that - the champions having to switch manager midway through the season. 

          Former boss Niko Kovac was sacked after a humiliating 5-1 defeat against Eintracht Frankfurt back in early November, with the Bavarians flailing in fourth place in the Bundesliga. However, Kovac's replacement Hans-Dieter Flick did a superb job, winning 22 games and drawing one out of his 23 games at the helm.

          Bayern still have the chance to add more silverware to their bulging trophy cabinet, as they still have to play the German Cup final against Bayer Leverkusen. They are also well placed to qualify for the Champions League quarter-finals after their 3-0 win against Chelsea at Stamford Bridge back in February.
