Bayern Munich Survives Dortmund Scare To Wins 7th Successive Bundesliga Title After Beating Eintracht Frankfurt 5-1


Bayern Munich survives the scare Borussia Dortmund posed and finally clinched the German bundesliga title.  Dortmund chased the the title but at the end became the runner-up with just two points adrift of the top. It was indeed amazing for Bayern coach who has been under intense pressure to keep his job. 


Winger, Arjen Robben and Franck Ribery brought teammates to tears after Bayern Munich completed an astonishing title race turnaround to win a seventh successive Bundesliga crown on Saturday.


Ribery and Robben both scored in their final Bundesliga appearance as Bayern sealed the title on the final day, having been nine points behind rivals Borussia Dortmund earlier in the season.


“We knew that we didn’t just need to win today, we needed to show everyone who the champions of Germany are,” striker Robert Lewandowski told Sky.


“I wanted to win for Franck and Arjen. I saw their families before the game and I have to say I almost cried.”


Robben and Ribery will both leave the club at the end of the season, having spent 10 and 12 years respectively in Munich. Both looked close to tears before the game as they were given a roaring send-off by the Bayern fans before coming off the bench to help Bayern to a 5-1 win over Eintracht Frankfurt.


“After a game like that, so many emotions go through you, through your whole body,” Robben told Sky. “You can’t put it into words, you just have to experience it.”


“The main thing was that we won the league today. My whole family came from France for this special moment,” said Ribery.


Bayern president Uli Hoeness, who has been a mentor figure for Ribery in his 12 years at Bayern, wept openly in the stands as the Frenchman scored Bayern’s fourth goal.


“It was emotional enough when he was substituted on but when he scored this fantastic goal, I couldn’t hold back the tears,” Hoeness told Sky.
