Full Match Highlights: Augsburg vs Bayern 1-4

Bayern are the 2017/18 champions! The nation’s most successful club sealed their sixth German championship title on the bounce, beating Augsburg 4-1. Niklas Süle put through his own goal after 15 minutes, but Corentin Tolisso and James turned the tide before half-time. Arjen Robben twisted the knife after the hour mark, Sandro Wagner adding gloss to the scoreline in the closing stages.

The champions started with Sven Ulreich between the sticks and Joshua Kimmich, Niklas Süle, Jérôme Boateng and Rafinha in a back four. Sebastian Rudy anchored a midfield featuring Robben, Tolisso, James and Juan Bernat, with Wagner as lone striker.

Jupp Heynckes comprehensively shuffled his deck, making seven changes to the XI that saw off Sevilla on Tuesday, Ulreich, Kimmich, Boateng and Bernat being the only survivors. Martínez took over from James after the hour mark, Thomas Müller and birthday boy Franck Ribéry replacing Robben and Bernat with ten minutes to go.
