Bayern Munich ended the Bundesliga season with 82 points following a 4-1 win over Freiburg on the final day of the campaign.

Max Kruse found the back of the net in the 68th-minute, but Marco Reus pulled one back from the penalty spot in the 75th-minute.

With both sides level, Pierre Aubameyang scored the winner via a spot-kick in the 89th-minute, thus gifting his side maximum points.

Jonas Hector opened the scoring in the 43rd-minute whilst Yuya Osako struck home in the 87th-minute as Cologne secured a 2-0 win over Mainz.

Elsewhere, Bayer Leverkusen poured out all their frustrations of the season on Hertha Berlin as they secured a 6-2 victory away at the Olympiastadion,
