Bayern Munich wrapped the title pursuit in an enviable fashion over the weekend when the pipped host Eintracht Frankfurt by 1-0 in well earned victory. The 22nd Bundesliga title did not come to them on a platter of gold as the Eagles put in a relentless display and made the champion worked hard for their victory. Bein Schweinsteiger sublime finish came in the second half of the game. Bayern Munich got a grip of the game quite early as they dominated possession , even though the host were without their captain Permin Schweglar and top goal scorer Alex Mier, they were content with Bayern dominating possession while they were just doing enough to contain the attacking  onslaught of their opponents. The host had a rare chance through Karim Matmour but could not make the opportunity count, however Swiss international Xherdan Shaqiri rattled the bar with a fierce shot which could have open the goal feast early in the game.

Eintracht Frankfurt were quite particular in containing the fluid moment of the Bavarian. The hard work of the host team almost amounted to nothing when Marco Russ clumsily felled Thomas Muller in the box – Austrian international David Alaba failed to convert the spot kick, his first ever penalty miss in the Bundesliga. The well drilled Frankfurt team frustrated the efforts of  visitor as the game ended 0-0 by half time.

Eintracht Frankfurt continued to  limit the Bavarians but it was almost impossible for a Bayern Munich team that could create something out of nothing. Munich constant attack paid off when Phillip Lahm overlapped and he crossed the ball for Bein Schweinsteiger who was on hand to back heel the ball into the net. The goal awoke the host from their slumber and they began to assert themselves in the game but they lacked the necessary cutting edge to get on the score sheet. The victory was enough Bayern Munich to clinch the title that has eluded them for the past 2 seasons. They are now 20 points ahead of their fellow rival Borrusia Dortmund. They can focus more on the UEFA Champions League which they lost on penalties to Chelsea.
