Less than two months into a lackluster start, Bayern officials pulled the trigger on manager Carlo Ancelotti and persuaded Jupp Heynckes to un-retire for a fourth stint in charge.

Bayern Munich were crowned Bundesliga champions for the sixth successive season after beating Augsburg 4-1 on Saturday. But there were none of the customary beer showers.

Bayern had been in complete control at the top even before the turn of the year and have gone on to win the title at a canter. Corentin Tolisso, James Rodriguez, Arjen Robben and Sandro Wagner scored as Bayern came from behind to move an unassailable 20 points ahead of Schalke with five rounds remaining. The last time it clinched the title in front of its own fans came when the club was still playing at Munich's Olympiastadion in 2000.

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

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's not only a great coach but a great person", Heynckes said.

Augsburg started at pace, closing down any space for the visitors, and the pressure paid off in the 18th minute with an own-goal.

Jerome Boateng's untimely slip enabled Sergio Cordova to pounce, and, although the winger's effort was saved by Ulreich, the ball rebounded back in off the unfortunate Sule.

However, Munich were 2-1 up by the time half-time came when Joshua Kimmich's cross picked out Tolisso unmarked in the area to header Bayern level on 32 minutes.

Minutes later, Bayern were in front as Juan Bernat did well to pick out James Rodriguez, who fired into the bottom corner from eight-yards out.

Second-place Schalke was playing at Hamburger SV later Saturday but can no longer catch the Bavarian powerhouse.

26- Robert Lewandowski has arguably been the vital element for Bayern this season, scoring 26 times in the Bundesliga.

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