Bayern Munich have set a new milestone in their dominance of German football with a title-clinching 3-1 win over Hertha Berlin. 

Goals from Toni Kroos, Mario Goetze and Franck Ribery sealed the unbeaten defending champions' 24th German title with seven games to spare, bettering the mark set in last year's record-breaking campaign by one game. 

It is Pep Guardiola's first Bundesliga title in his first season as coach. 

''We worked very hard for this title. When you win by 25 points people can think it's easy. But it's not easy, especially after the last season with three titles,'' the Spaniard said. 

''When you win 19 games one after the other, it speaks for the mentality of the team.'' 

Bayern's 19th consecutive win, their 10th consecutive victory away from home, and their unbeaten run of 52 games are all Bundesliga records.
