It’s here. The last game of the Bundesliga season is upon us. Don’t worry, we have the World Cup to fill the void in our football viewing.

Jersey Swap: VfB Stuttgart

Seven shots, seven on target. VfB Stuttgart were out to spoil the Jupp Heynckes party at the Allianz Arena. The initial goal in the 5th minute from Daniel Ginczek set the Swabians on a path victory. Despite only having 19.7% possession and 59 pass success %, Stuttgart made the most of their opportunities.

Tip Of The Cap: Sven Ulreich

While it’s hard to put a goalkeeper here when they concede four goals in a match, Ulreich made some fantastic saves in this match. He was left out to hang on multiple occasions and faced enough 1-on-1 plays to concede 8 goals in this one.

Golf Clap: Corentin Tolisso

It wasn’t pretty at the Allianz Area. Despite the disappointing performance, Corentin Tolisso got the only goal of the game for the Bavarians. Assisted by Robert Lewandowski, Tolisso’s goal gave Bayern Munich a much-needed response after conceding in the 5th minute of the game. However, the Frenchman’s goal wasn’t enough to propel to Bavarians to victory.

Standing Ovation: Champions

Bayern Munich lifted the Bundesliga title at the Allianz Arena after a defeat at the hands of VfB Stuttgart. The result didn’t go as planned the season, but the Bavarians will be celebrating a season of success in the Bundesliga. Bayern Munich are Bundesliga champions. That’s becoming a familiar tale. The Bavarians will be hoping this domestic success continues.

Meister Of The Match: Jupp Heynckes

The score line wasn’t how Bayern Munich intended to finish the Bundesliga season. Despite that, today has been about one man, especially for Bayern Munich.

Words will never be able to describe what Jupp Heynckes means to Bayern Munich. Stepping in a time of need and uncertainty at the club, the 73-year-old manager re-established Bayern Munich in a time when they needed it the most. Answering the call despite his retirement, Heynckes came back with a bang. Sealing the Bundesliga title in impressive fashion, the Bavarians were a force to be reckoned with on the European stage. Unfortunately, it wasn’t meant to be for Bayern Munich as they were knocked out by Real Madrid, despite an impressive performance against the Spanish side. Heynckes will be ending his reign at Bayern Munich against Eintracht Frankfurt in the DFB-Pokal Final. Whatever the result, Heynckes will always be regarded as a legend in Munich and German Football. Thank you Jupp!
