Bayern overcome weird own goal to clinch another title

Bayern Munich secured a sixth straight Bundesliga title after coming from behind to win 4-1 at Bavarian neighbours Augsburg.

Kahn, who spent 14 years with Bayern Munich and amassed 632 total appearances, believes Zidane would be a "sensational" replacement for the German and that he is more than capable of achieving success with the club.

"It's always good (to win a title) - we knew it was going to happen, but we still had to confirm it", said Robben, who has now won the Bundesliga title seven times since joining Bayern in 2009.

Once again it was away from home.

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.

A fine save from Hitz denied Robben a second as Bayern looked to run riot, with Sebastian Rudy passing up a golden chance to net his first Bundesliga goal of the season.

"He looked after the team at the start of the season and I'd like to send heartfelt congratulations for the title". "Everyone delivered great work".

Heynckes, 72, said Bayern are sticking to a plan they have put together with the club's medical experts.

The Bavarians did not get off the best of starts as they fell behind in the 18th minute through an own goal from Niklas Sule. Defender Jerome Boateng, under no pressure, lost control of the ball and was dispossessed by Sergio Cordova leaving the Venezuelan with only Sven Ulreich to beat.

But the home side were unable to maintain its furious pace, and Tolisso was left completely unmarked to head in Joshua Kimmich's cross for the equalizer after a half-hour.

James put the visitors in front before the break, scoring from close range after Juan Bernat deflected Kimmich's cross into his path.

The Colombian then ensured the title was heading to Munich, hooking the ball back into play at the far post for Robben to drill his shot inside the near post on 62 minutes. Jonas Hector gave Cologne an early lead but Pablo de Blasis levelled five minutes into the second half, leaving the Billy Goats six points adrift of safety in 17th place.
