Bayern Munich win fourth straight Bundesliga title after Dortmund lose

Bayern Munich won their fourth straight Bundesliga title after they beat Ingolstadt 2-1 as Borussia Dortmund lost 1-0 to Eintracht Frankfurt.

Bayern clinched their 25th Bundesliga title with a game of the season to spare. Robert Lewandowski's 28th and 29th goals of the season, the first coming from the penalty spot, put one hand on a fourth straight league title for the Bavarians.

Moritz Hartmann made them wait to make sure as he pulled a goal back from the penalty spot, but there was to be no fairy-tale recovery for the smaller of the two Bavarian clubs as their illustrious neighbours took the points and the title.

Eintracht Frankfurt boosted their survival hopes with a win over Dortmund that boosted them three points clear of the relegation zone with one game remaining.

Stefan Aigner's 14th-minute strike was enough for Niko Kovac's men to win, leaving Frankfurt needing just a point from their final day-trip to Werder Bremen to stay up.

Borussia Monchengladbach all but mathematically joined Bayer Leverkusen in qualifying for the Champions League next season after coming from behind to beat their local rivals 2-1 at home.

Charles Aranguiz put the visitors in front with his first goal in German football, but two goals from Andre Hahn earned Gladbach all three points.

That puts them three points ahead of Mainz, Hertha Berlin and Schalke, with their far superior goal difference meaning they can already start celebrating a second straight season in European football's elite club competition.

Hertha Berlin saw their hopes of qualifying for the Champions League next season all but ended by a Darmstadt side who secured their place in Germany's top flight next season with a 2-1 win in the capital.

Vladimir Darida put the Old Lady in front, but goals from Jerome Gondorf and former Hertha forward Sandro Wagner, who was later sent off, saw Darmstadt get the win they needed to be sure of Bundesliga football again next season and leave Hertha fighting on the final day of the season with Mainz to avoid entering the Europa League in the qualifying rounds.

Relegated Hannover gave their fans something to celebrate in their final home game with a 1-0 win over Hoffenheim.

Hiroshi Kiyotake's goal in the 28th minute ensured Daniel Stendel's men took all three points from their final top-flight fixture at the Niedersachsenstadion for at least 15 months.

Wolfsburg ended a seven-game wait for a win by beating rivals Hamburg 1-0.

Luiz Gustavo scored the only goal of an otherwise lifeless derby at the Volksparkstadion to ensure they cannot be dragged into relegation danger next weekend, while Hamburg are also safe from the drop despite defeat.

Augsburg left it late to dent Schalke's hopes of qualifying for the Champions League next season and secure their place in the top flight with a 1-1 draw at the Arena AufSchalke.

Klaas-Jan Huntelaar put the hosts in front in the 82nd minute but Daniel Baier's 89th-minute equaliser leaves the Royal Blues three points off fourth-placed Borussia Monchengladbach and likely to miss out on Champions League football next season.

While Augsburg were still not mathematically safe, they nevertheless allowed their hosts to do all of the work, appearing happy to sit back and defend a point which would probably see them home and dry.

Werder Bremen need a win on the final day of the season to avoid a relegation playoff or even worse after they came away from Cologne with only a point from a 0-0 draw.

Stuttgart slid even closer towards relegation to the 2. Bundesliga as they went down 3-1 at home to Mainz on Saturday, sparking the anger of their fans in their final home game of the season.

Christian Gentner gave the Swabians an early lead, but a contentious equaliser from Yunus Malli before half-time saw the mood change.

Jhon Cordoba and Karim Onisiwo struck in a strong second-half showing from Mainz to keep them at least mathematically in the hunt for fourth place, and leave Stuttgart needing to win in Wolfsburg next weekend to stand any chance of staying up.
