Impressive Dortmund wrap up Bundesliga title

Dominant in the Bundesliga for the majority of the season, Borussia Dortmund have been crowned champions for the first time since 2001/02 after they won and Bayer 04 Leverkusen lost.

Borussia Dortmund have been crowned Bundesliga champions for the first time since 2002 after their 2-0 home win against 1. FC Nürnberg coincided with defeat for second-placed Bayer 04 Leverkusen.

Top of the table since early November, Jürgen Klopp's men were two  to the good by the break thanks to Lucas Barrios and Robert Lewandowski. Leverkusen had to win to keep their hopes alive but succumbed 2-0 at 1. FC Köln, Milivoje Novakovič scoring both goals in the second half.

FC Bayern München leapfrogged Hannover 96 into Germany's third and final UEFA Champions League place with two games remaining. The outgoing champions took advantage of a defeat for Hannover 96 by beating FC Schalke 04 4-1 in the late game, Thomas Müller among the scorers with two.

Hannover came unstuck against VfL Borussia Mönchengladbach, who boosted their survival chances with a 1-0 triumph. Lucien Favre's team are two points adrift of Eintracht in the relegation-promotion play-off place and three behind VfL Wolfsburg.

Elsewhere, 1. FSV Mainz 05 look safe in fifth after a 3-0 defeat of third-bottom Eintracht Frankfurt, who had Sebastian Rode (43) sent off. Papiss Demba Cissé's double, meanwhile, earned SC Freiburg a 2-0 victory at Hamburger SV and TSG 1899 Hoffenheim lost 2-1 at home to VfB Stuttgart.
