FOOTBALL : Bayern Munich win 2013 Bundesliga title in record time

Bayern Munich have won the German Bundesliga title with six games to spare - the quickest-ever triumph in German league history.

Bayern Munich won 1-0 at Eintracht Frankfurt, with Bastian Schweinsteiger scoring the only goal of the game with a cheeky back-heeled finish. Defending champions Borussia Dortmund beat Augsburg 4-2 but are 20 points behind.

Bayern Munich have lost only once all season in the league, conceding just 13 goals, and the Bavarians have won all 11 league games since the winter break.

"The fact that we have won the title after 28 games is extraordinary, it's simply fantastic," said manager Jupp Heynckes, who is moving aside at the end of the season to allow Pep Guardiola to take over.

Bayern remain on course for a league, domestic cup and European Cup treble - something the German team have never achieved.

Leading 2-0 after the first leg of their Champions League quarter-final against Juventus, Heynckes' side are favourites to progress into the last four, and Bayern Munich also Wolfsburg in the semi-finals of the German Cup.
