SPORTS: Bayern wins 8th consecutive Bundesliga title



Bayern Munich claimed the Bundesliga title for an eighth successive season with an unconvincing 1-0 win at relegation-threatened Werder Bremen.
Hansi Flick's men approached Tuesday's clash at a rain-soaked Weserstadion knowing victory would be enough to retain the crown with two games to  spare. Bayern were below their brilliant best against Werder  I'm the vague encounter but held on for the victory following Alphonso Davies' contentious red card with 11 minutes to go.
Bayern coach Flick in a post match interview praised his team's spirit and character in the encounter, he said; 

 "With the red card, Bremen were a bit braver. We had to defend and did it sensationally. That is why there is no criticism today. I am very, very happy and can only say it again and again: you never succeed alone. We are just one unit and I really enjoy being here."

"The football we have played in the last few months has been sensational," he said. "You can feel the passion, enthusiasm and fighting spirit, even today after the red card."

Lewandowski's sublime 43rd-minute finish proved enough to seal the points and the championship, his 31st goal of the league campaign wrapping up Bayern's 8th consecutive German title taking their tally to 30 Bundesliga  triumph in total and also keeping their hopes of winning  a treble this season alive.
