Stuttgart were crowned champions of Germany on Saturday as they won their final game of the season, 2-1, at home to Energie Cottbus.

Stuttgart had taken the leadership from Schalke last weekend and held their nerve to complete the job.

An early goal from Sergiu Radu had put Cottbus ahead but Thomas Hitzlsperger replied quickly. Sami Khedira then struck the title-winning goal in the second-half, rendering futile Schalke´s 2-1 win over Arminia Bielefeld.
