    • Pep Guardiola's side defeats Ingolstadt 2-1 to secure crown
    • Triumph is Bayerns 26th Bundesliga title

    (CNN)Bayern Munich notched its 26th Bundesliga crown thanks to a 2-1 victory away to Ingolstadt Saturday.

    Polish striker Robert Lewandowski scored both Bayern goals as the Bavarian club became the first in Germany to win four successive league titles.
      Borussia Dortmund was the only team that could have possibly caught Bayern coming into Saturday's fixtures.
      But it stumbled to a frustrating 1-0 defeat at relegation-threatened Frankfurt as Bayern was wrapping up the title.
      Bayern players danced on the pitch at the final whistle as they celebrated a happy end to what has been a difficult week for the club.
      Defeat to Atletico to Atletico Madrid in the Champions League semifinal Tuesday was followed by manager Pep Guardiola telling the media he believed there was a mole within the Bayern Munich dressing room undermining his work.
      Guardiola went on to say that because he will be leaving for Manchester City in the summer such indiscipline was no longer his problem.
      Yet there were few visible signs of discord in the Bayern ranks Saturday as it efficiently disposed of its mid table opponents.
      Bayern took the lead when Lewandowski fired home from the penalty spot after Franck Ribery had been felled in the box by Ingolstadt captain, Marvin Matip.
      Lewandowski then doubled Bayern's advantage when he finished from a tight-angle shortly after.
      Although Moritz Hartmann pulled one back for Ingolstadt from the spot just before halftime, Bayern saw out the second half to secure the win and the title.
      "We've played brilliantly together. It's a great achievement to have won this title," said Bayern forward Thomas Mueller in comments carried by the AFP news agency after the match.
      "To have won four in a row is special. It has never happened before, despite all the great teams who have played in the Bundesliga. It's a great relief to have done it," Mueller added.
      Bayern will now look to do the double by adding the German cup to the Bundesliga when it faces Borussia Dortmund in the final of that tournament on May 21.
