Bayern Munich won the Bundesliga for a record 24th time as Pep Guardiola’s side strolled to a comprehensive 3-1 win over Hertha Berlin on Tuesday night. Goals from Mario Gotze, Frank Ribery and Toni Kroos ensured the Bavarains wrap up the title while their opponents Hertha Berlin could only watch in despair grabbing a late consolation from the encounter. With this win, Bayern broke their own record from last year, winning title in record time.  Pep Guardiola’s side have now won 19 league games in a row and are unbeaten for 52 matches. The last time they went 90 minutes in the Bundesliga without scoring was in April 2012. While the rest of German can gracefully accept that Bayern are simply a class above anyone in the league, skeptics however might feel the lack of competition in the Bundesliga might not be a good advertisement for Germany’s top tier club competition.

Guardiola however was thankful to previous manager Jupp Heynckes whose side won the famous trebele last campaign. “We won the title with hard work and when you see what Jupp Heynckes achieved last season, that was the only way we were going to better that,” said Guardiola. He laid the foundations.” In his first season, Guardiola, the previous manager of Spanish Giants FCBareclona has now won three titles in nine months after last August’s UEFA Super Cup triumph and December’s Club World Cup.

“Yes I am delighted that we have won the title, hence retaining it,” said Guardiola as his side opened up an insurmountable 25-point lead over second-placed Borussia Dortmund. “I owe it to the players, the fans and everyone associated with this great club. thank my players and the club who have helped me achieve this. We have had a lot of injuries this season, but that is when you demand more from your players, to perform even better, twice their potential, and they have exactly done that. Tonight as well, we dominated from the start though we lost it around a bit in the middle but I am just happy we have finally managed it. Surely we will celebrate today and tomorrow.”

Bayern though are to play in the Champions League with their next opponents being Manchester United in the quarter finals of Europe’s elite club competition.

Elsewhere, Borrusia Dortmund and Schalke played out a goalless draw as the fierce rivals were involved in a lack luster Ruhr Derby which failed to live up to expectations.
