Bayern Munich destroyed Wolfsburg 4-0 to finish the season with a victory.

With the title already wrapped up, Bayern Munich could have let their foot off the gas and relaxed, but unfortunately for Wolfsburg, that did not happen. The away side was absolutely dominant even with a couple of their top players rested on the bench and showed no mercy on the last matchday. Wolfsburg, who were fighting for a spot in the Europa League, came into the match with a lot to play for but stood no chance against the Bavarians.

Bayern started their scoring right at the beginning with Kingsley Coman slotting the ball past Koen Casteels in the fourth minute. And then it wasn’t until the 37th minute when Bayern struck again, this time courtesy of Mickael Cuisance, the Frenchman’s first goal for Bayern. It was a beautiful strike from outside the box, very Arjen Robben-esque.

Die Roten quadrupled their lead in the second half. Robert Lewandowski converted from the penalty spot in the 72nd minute, and then Thomas Muller got rewarded for a great match with his own goal in the 79th minute to complete the 4-0 route. (stats via whoscored.com).

The Ruckrunde for Bayern Munich has been sensational, dropping points only once throughout the year (via whoscored.com). This team looks destined for great things for the rest of the season. Next weekend is the DfB Pokal final against Bayer Leverkusen, and then the Champions League resumes in August. Before focussing on cup competitions, here are key takeaways from the win against Wolfsburg.
