In truth, yet another title win for Bayern rarely looked in doubt at any point this season. Even accounting for the sacking of Carlo Ancelotti in September, the defending champions rarely looked like they would be relinquishing their crown.
Under the management of Heynckes, brought out of retirement to steady the ship, Bayern have been a rampant force in the German league. A record of 19 wins from 23 cemented their status as the top dog in Germany, further hammered home by a 6-0 dismantling of Borussia Dortmund last week.

With the league title safely in the bag, Heynckes and Bayern can now focus on trying to replicate the fine 2013 treble achievement. The side look on course to reach the Champions League semi-finals next week as they look to preserve a 2-1 lead against Sevilla, while they face Bayer Leverkusen in the DFB-Pokal semi-final later this month.
Looking slightly beyond that, Bayern are also on the lookout for a new manager for next season, with Heynckes confirming that he will leave once against at the end of this campaign.
