With a record seven games left in the Bundesliga season, Bayern Munich have been crowned champions of Germany after a 3-1 win at Hertha Berlin, according to Mark Hallam of the Deutsche Welle.

It has been a case of "when" Bayern will win the title rather than "if" for a number of months now, but they did so in style with a professional performance in the capital.       

Goal on Twitter had high praise for the club following the victory:

Meanwhile, Bleacher Report UK offered this telling graphic, courtesy of FourFourTwo:

Toni Kroos set Bayern on their way with an early goal, before strikes from Mario Goetze and Franck Ribery sealed the club's second consecutive Bundesliga crown.

Pep Guardiola has lapped up silverware throughout his managerial career, and his first season at Bayern has proved to be a record-breaking, trophy-infested one.

Guardiola has orchestrated FIFA Club World Cup and UEFA Super Cup success already and now adds the Bundesliga title to his list of honours—though he's not done there.

With the DFB-Pokal semi-finals and a Champions League quarter-final tie with Manchester United fast approaching, who's to say that the Spaniard can't work his way to a quintet of trophies in year one?

Tuesday night's victory in Berlin saw Bayern break their own record for winning a Bundesliga title in the shortest amount of time, as reported by broadcaster Richard Keys on Twitter:

After 27 league games, Bayern have won 25 and drawn two—an absolutely incredible statistic, but one that isn't at all surprising.

Now, all Guardiola has to do is see out an unbeaten season and make even more history with his new club. But with the likes of Kroos, Ribery, Arjen Robben, Philipp Lahm and Bastian Schweinsteiger at his disposal, you'd be a brave man to bet against the champions.
