German side Bayern Munich won the 2012/13 Bundesliga title on Saturda thanks to a 1-0 win over Eintracht Frankfurt at the Commerzbank-Arena. 

Jupp Heynckes' team have stormed the league this year and remain well on course for the treble. The league champions are going strong in the Champions League this season after beating Juventus 2-0 in the first leg of their quarter-final, and also remain in contention in the German Cup too. 

Bayern Munich have wrapped up the league with six games to spare - a feat that has not been matched for over 50 years in Germany. The Bavarian outfit have dropped points only four times all season in the league and their dominance has been clear for all to see. 

Back to the game against Eintracht Frankfurt, Bastian Schweinsteiger had given rampant Bayern the lead on 53 minutes, a good finish past Kevin Trapp in the Frankfurt goal. Bayern, however, should have been leading 2-0, but Austrian international David Alaba missed a penalty earlier in the game.

But that was how the game finished and Bayern were soon celebrating a league title that with it came a series of record-breakers. This is Munich's 23rd Bundesliga title - no team in Germany have won it on more occasions.

Also, it looks like Bayern may have the chance to break the record for the number of goals scored in a league campaign. The Bavarians have scored 79, whilst the target stands at 101, which, at a glance, seems like a hefty amount. But this is the Bayern team that have thrashed teams like Hamburg 9-2 this season. 

Another record that could be broken by Heynckes' team is in the goals conceded area. The record for fewest goals conceded in a single season stands at 21, whilst Bayern have only conceded 13 so far.

All in all it has been a triumphant season for Bayern, and everyone associated with the club will hope they can carry the domestic form into the Champions League.
