Champions Bayern Munich lifted their 22nd Bundesliga trophy this morning after a comfortable 3-nil over Augsburg as they prepare for the all-German Champions League final against Borussia Dortmund in two weeks.

The champions left it late, scoring three goals in the second half through Thomas Mueller, Xherdan Shaqiri and Luiz Gustavo.

It was a 28th win in 33 league games, with one match left in the season, for sensational Bayern who weeks ago secured their 23rd German league title and 22nd since the introduction of the Bundesliga half a century ago.
