Bayern Munich won the Bundesliga title for a seventh straight season as they held off Borussia Dortmund with a thumping 5-1 final day win over Eintracht Frankfurt.
The Bavarians, who can secure a domestic double if they beat RB Leipzig in the German Cup final on May 25, have now won the German league title a record 29 times.
With two points separating Bayern and Dortmund going into the final matchday, the Bavarians were in no mood for any mishaps.
In a dominant first half they went ahead through Kingsley Coman after four minutes and missed a bagful of chances to double the lead.
Frankfurt briefly levelled when Sebastien Haller stabbed in on the rebound in the 50th minute but their hopes of a top-four finish lasted only minutes with David Alaba and Renato Sanches netting for the hosts in the 53rd and 58th minutes.
Veteran wingers Franck Ribery and Arjen Robben, both leaving the club at the end of the season, then came on as substitutes and scored Bayern's fourth and fifth goals for a perfect farewell.
Frenchman Ribery, departing after 12 years, became the first player ever to win nine Bundesliga titles.
Bayern's Robert Lewandowski was crowned the league's top scorer for the fourth time with 22 goals.
Dortmund finished two points behind in second place on 76 after beating Borussia Moenchengladbach 2-0. RB Leipzig, third, and fourth-placed Bayer Leverkusen will join them in next season's Champions League.
Gladbach, VfL Wolfsburg and Frankfurt will compete in the Europa League.
