We have a champion in Germany. And it has been the same for 10 seasons. Bayern Munich won its tenth consecutive Bundesliga championship after defeating Borussia Dortmund (3-1) in Round 31 of the German championship to reach a total of 75 points, a figure unreachable by any other team in German soccer.

In Julian Nagelsmann's first year at the Bavarian club, the former RB Leipzig coach has won a tenth consecutive Bundesliga title for the German club.
The season got off to a shaky start. The draw against Borussia Mönchengladbach heralded a difficult start for Nagelsmann in the Bayern Munich dugout, but as the matchdays went by, he was gradually freed up.
It only took them five matchdays to take the lead in the Bundesliga, and since then no one has been able to wrest from them a position of privilege that they will hold until at least the first matchday of the 2022-23 season.
Lewandowski as the cornerstone
The Polish striker seems to have made a pact with the devil to maintain his high level. The striker has once again been the man behind Bayern's attacking game.
Robert Lewandowski once again dominates the Golden Boot standings. The Bayern striker has scored 32 goals in the 30 games he has played up to the 'Der Klassiker'. He is seven goals ahead of his nearest challengers and 12 ahead of the Bundesliga's second-highest scorer, Patrick Schick.
But Bayern Munich is not just about Lewandowski. The Pole would be nothing without the teammates who provide him with assists and balls into the box. And that's where another old rocker, Thomas Müller, comes in. He has contributed 16 assists in the Bundesliga.
At the back, Bayern Munich have survived the loss of another of the team's stalwarts, Manuel Neuer, who had to undergo surgery but whose absence in the domestic competition was not too noticeable.
Bundesliga as a consolation
Julian Nagelsmann's first year at Bayern Munich has not gone as expected. The coach arrived with the good work at RB Leipzig, which he even took to the semifinals of the Champions League, but has fallen by the wayside.
With the absence of David Alaba, who left for Real Madrid, he lost a general commander in defense. This is precisely where Bayern's problems have come from, as they have been unable to find a reliable replacement for the Austrian.
Bayern quickly fell out of contention for the DFB Pokal. In what was one of the worst games of the Nagelsmann era, if not the worst, Borussia Mönchengladbach scored five goals against the Bavarians in the 1/16 final.
With the Bundesliga already wrapped up, all eyes were on the Champions League. There, too, Bayern were shipwrecked in the quarterfinals, unable to beat a Villarreal side that stormed the Allianz Arena to continue their dream.
Thus, Nagelsmann's first year ended with the German Super Cup, beating Borussia Dortmund, and the 31st Bundesliga title in its history, the tenth in a row. Bayern are unbeatable in Germany.
