Bayern Munich win German league title

Text by News Wires

Latest update : 2010-05-09

Bayern Munich won the German league title after beating Hertha Berlin 3-1 on Saturday. The Bavarians clinched their 22nd title after their star striker, Arjen Robben, scored twice against the Berliners.

REUTERS - Bayern Munich beat relegated Hertha Berlin 3-1 on Saturday to win the German championship for a record 22nd time and keep their treble hopes on track.

Arjen Robben, the champions’ best player this season, struck twice after Ivica Olic had put them in the lead in the 20th minute and Adrian Ramos had equalised for the Berliners on the hour.

Bayern, who finished on 70 points, five ahead of second-placed Schalke 04, are still in the running for an unprecedented treble for a Germany team, playing in the German Cup final on May 15 and the Champions League final a week later.

Schalke drew 0-0 at Mainz but had already secured the second spot and will compete in next season’s Champions League. Werder Bremen clinched the Champions League qualification spot after drawing 1-1 with Hamburg SV to finish third on 61 points.

Hosts VfL Bochum slumped to a 3-0 defeat to Hanover 96 and will join Hertha on the way down.

Nuremberg finished third from bottom and will play a relegation playoff with the third-best second division team.
