The title will be the only major piece of silverware Bayern claim this season, after Wednesday's defeat to Borussia Dortmund in the German Cup semifinal. "The significant issue is that we have the opportunity to take three points".

He brushed off criticism over what some said was a too-light training regime while also comfortably handling his big-name players and ambitious club bosses, who never stopped backing him.

"I'm really happy - especially after our hard period", Ancelotti told Sky Deutschland. I played 10 years at Bayern and won two league titles.

However, Bayern put recent disappointment behind them on Saturday in northern Germany, cruising to their 27th German league title and their fifth Bundesliga in a row with a thumping six-goal rout of struggling Wolfsburg.

Robert Lewandowski bagged a brace, David Alaba fired home a free kick to get the goals flowing, Arjen Robben pulled out a party piece from range and Thomas Müller was in the right place at the right time to hoover up a goal when Lewandowski could only hit the woodwork.

He bagged his second and Bayern's third goal just before the half-time whistle after Coman delivered another cross unopposed from the left wing to make it 3-0.

Both Aubameyang and Cologne's Anthony Modeste, who has 23 league goals, drew blanks at Signal Iduna Park.

Bayern finished off the relegation-threatened Wolves with three more goals in the second half, when the hosts were reduced to 10 men following the dismissal of former Bayern player Luiz Gustavo.

The 2016/17 season heralded the start of the Carlo Ancelotti era at Bayern Munich, as the veteran Italian coach - victor of three UEFA Champions League titles, as well as domestic crowns in Italy, England and France - took over from Pep Guardiola at Säbener Strasse.

Hoffenheim, coached by Julian Nagelsmann, 29, the youngest coach in Bundesliga history, can leapfrog Dortmund if they beat Eintracht in Frankfurt on Sunday.

Werder Bremen made it nine wins in their last 11 games with a 2-0 win over European rivals Hertha Berlin to move into sixth place, a point behind their opponents. Lars Stindl and Nico Schulz scored for Borussia Moenchengladbach. The player expected to fill Philipp Lahm's sizeable boots next season, Joshua Kimmich, came to the fore with three goals in those two games, as well as his first worldwide goal for Germany in a 2018 FIFA World Cup qualifier against Norway.
