  • Current Bayern boss Jupp Heynckes will leave the German giants at the end of the season

Heynckes was soon parachuted back in for a fourth stint at the helm, and it only took the record champions a month to get back on top - where they have been ever since.

Bayern Munich were crowned Bundesliga champions for the sixth consecutive season on Saturday, with five games still left to play. But there were none of the customary beer showers.

Once again it was away from home.

Bayern's Bavarian neighbours Augsburg, though, were out to spoil the party and took an early lead through a freakish own-goal from defender Niklas Sule after 18 minutes.

The last time Munich claimed the title in front of their own fans was1999/2000 season, when they hoisted the shield on Matchday 34 after a 3-1 victory over Werder Bremen, benefiting from Bayer Leverkusen's defeat away to Unterhaching.

Changes could also be made in Bayern's midfield, with Arturo Vidal set to miss the game through injury, while Javi Martinez and Thiago could be rested at the weekend.

The Bavarians have now secured the title with five games to spare this term.

Jupp Heynckes' men did restore parity on 32 minutes when Christian Tolisso headed home Joshua Kimmich's cross.

Cordova's shot was blocked by Bayern goalkeeper Sven Ulreich, but the ball ricocheted into Suele's face and into Bayern's goal to stun the visitors on 18 minutes.

The only exception was the 1-0 home victory over Hertha Berlin in the 2014/15 season.
