Werder Bremen 0, Bayern Munich 1
Bayern Munich are again Bundesliga champions, concluding their eighth consecutive league title with a 1-0 victory over Werder Bremen on Tuesday.

This means that former Vancouver Whitecaps player Alphonso Davies already has a league championship at his age at the age of 19. The left-back prodigy, who exploded this Bundesliga campaign on the world stage, has emerged as a key contributor throughout Bayern’s career with a string of electric performances.
While he was in a scorching late form, it wasn’t the best of days for Davies on Tuesday, when he ended up being sent off for a low tackle in the 79th minute. On the other hand, the match also allowed him to find another defining moment in his young career, as he set a league record when he was timed at a sprint speed of 36.5 km / h .
Notably, FC Dallas Academy product Chris Richards made his first appearance on the Bayern bench. The 20-year-old defender was transferred to the German central in January 2019 for $ 1.25 million. He competed with the reserve team for much of the 2019-20 season.
United States national team forward Josh Sargent made a second-half appearance for Bremen, replacing Leonardo Bittencourt in the 62nd minute and ending the competition.
Borussia Mönchengladbach 3, Wolfsburg 0
Needing three points to stay in the race for very important fourth place with Bayer Leverkusen, it was a mission accomplished for Borussia Mönchengladbach, who won a 3-0 victory over Wolfsburg despite playing without three of their top five goal scorers.
Jonas Hoffman scored twice to follow Mönchengladbach, scoring in the 10th and 30th minutes, before Lars Stindl finished the game in the 65th. It was a tough day for the Wolfsburg baseline, but USMNT defender John Anthony Brooks resumed his starting role in central defense as he started and spent the 90 minutes – which he did made in every Wolfsburg game except one since returning from the league.
