Sizzling Stuttgart rain on Bayern Munich's title parade


Stuttgart proved almighty party poopers on Matchday 34, emerging 4-1 winners at the Allianz Arena on both Jupp Heynckes' final game as a Bundesliga coach and the day Bayern Munich lifted their sixth straight Bundesliga title.

Bayern Munich 1-4 Stuttgart

Goals: 0-1 Ginczek (5'), 1-1 Tolisso (21'), 1-2 Donis (42'), 1-3 Akolo (52'), 1-4 Ginczek (55')

Resplendent in their new home kit, Bayern started on the front foot, but were caught cold on the counter in the fifth minute, Anastasios Donis bursting past Rafinha and squaring for Daniel Ginczek, who duly converted from close range. The champions responded well, but created little until the 21st minute when Corentin Tolisso pounced inside the box after Robert Lewandowski tussled with Holger Badstuber. The Pole then went close twice, Ron-Robert Zieler producing two expert stops from close range, but it was the visitors who led at the break after Donis capitalised on a loose Niklas Süle pass in midfield, raced in behind and lifted a lovely finish past Sven Ulreich.

Man of the match

Donis was inspired under the Munich sunshine: making his first start since February, the attacking midfielder set up the first, scored the second and had a huge hand in Stuttgart's fourth. A virtuoso display on what should have been Bayern's day.
