They could have matched Bayern's fastest championship win - under Pep Guardiola in 2014 - but a slip-up against RB Leipzig meant they had to postpone the celebrations.

BERLIN (AP) - It's hard to believe there was a time this season when Bayern Munich didn't look like a champion side.

Bayern were three points behind leaders Borussia Dortmund when Ancelotti left but ran away with the title under Heynckes, winning 19 out of 22 league matches under his leadership to take the title with five matches to spare.

Bayern started winning again, and didn't stop.

The triumph extends their own record of successive Bundesliga titles, which started in 2012-13, the final season of Heynckes' last spell in charge.

The Bayern boss paid tribute to his squad and the work of their former head coach after another professional performance, which came on the back of a Champions League quarter-final first leg win at Sevilla.

After reveling with a cardboard Bundesliga trophy, the players danced in a conga line on Augsburg's field.

"There'll be a lot of time to celebrate", Franck Ribery said on his 35th birthday.

Jupp Heynckes says each and every member at FC Bayern München had a part to play in their sensational Bundesliga success this season.

The Bavarians are now 24 points ahead of Dortmund, who are third.

Bayern's Bavarian neighbours Augsburg, though, were out to spoil the party and took an early lead through a weird own-goal from defender Niklas Sule after 18 minutes. The title is also for him.

Bayern coach Jupp Heynckes hailed the pair as "great professionals with outstanding quality", before Rummenigge proposed that there is little reason not to hand both men new deals.

Sevilla would have been encouraged by the comedy of errors in Bayern's defence that led to Augsburg's opening goal.

James put the visitors in front before the break, scoring from close range after Juan Bernat deflected Kimmich's cross into his path.

He hooked the ball back into play at the far post for Robben to drill his shot inside the near post on 62 minutes.

Aaron Hunt scored a brilliant late goal for Hamburger SV to rekindle its hope of avoiding relegation with a 3-2 win over second-place Schalke.

An early goal by Cologne's Germany defender Jonas Hector was cancelled out as Pablo De Blasis headed an equaliser for Mainz five minutes into the second half.
