Bayern Munich clinched their fifth women's Bundesliga title as Japan midfielder Saki Kumagai hit a hat-trick in a 11-1 demolition of last-placed Turbine Potsdam on Sunday.

Bayern's women clinched the title on the final day of the season as the club's men's team did the day before. They finished two points ahead of Wolfsburg who beat visiting Freiburg 2-1.

Kumagai opened the scoring after just four minutes and Bayern were 7-0 up at halftime. 

Forwards Jovana Damnjanovic and Lea Schueller both scored twice as seven Bayern players got on the scoresheet at the Bayern training ground. 

The Bayern women are set to join their male counterparts, who won their 11th straight German title on Saturday, for a celebration at Munich's Marienplatz on Sunday afternoon.  

The result caps a dominant season for Bayern, who won 19 of their 22 games, losing just once. 

Bayern have not lost in the league since a 2-1 defeat at Wolfsburg in September. 

Bayern had a chance to wrap up the title a week early, but were held to a goalless draw away at Bayer Leverkusen. 

The loss was Turbine's 18th of the season, with the two-time Champions League winner set for relegation. 

The win is Bayern's fifth German title, after wins in 1976, 2015, 2016 and 2021. 

Bergisch Gladbach have won nine titles, the most in history, followed by Frankfurt and Wolfsburg who each have seven.
