BERLIN (AP) – Bayern Munich clinched the German Bundesliga football title with four games to spare Sunday when second-place Wolfsburg lost 1-0 at Borussia Moenchengladbach.

Max Kruse scored in the last minute for ‘Gladbach, lifting the ball over Wolfsburg goalkeeper Diego Benaglio for his side to move third.

With 76 points from 30 games, Bayern have an unassailable 15-point lead over Wolfsburg, one of only two sides to have beaten the Bavarian powerhouse this season. Moenchengladbach are the other.

Bastian Schweinsteiger scored late for Bayern to beat Hertha Berlin 1-0 at home Saturday, the win that ultimately secured the club’s third straight Bundesliga title.

Bayern have a record 25 German championships overall, including the first from 1932, with the rest coming after the Bundesliga was formed in 1963.
