Berlin: Borussia Dortmund retained the Bundesliga title when it beat Borussia Moenchengladbach 2-0 Saturday. It was Dortmund`s eighth German league championship.
Ivan Perisic scored in the 23rd minute and Shinji Kagawa got the celebrations under way in the 59th.
Dortmund has an unassailable eight-point lead over Bayern Munich with two rounds to play. The team also sealed the title at the same stage last season.
Dortmund stretched its record unbeaten run in a season to 26 games. It became the first team other than Bayern to retain the title since it last did so 16 years ago.
Franck Ribery kept Bayern`s slim hopes alive hours earlier when he scored in the 90th minute to earn his team a 2-1 win at Werder Bremen.
Elsewhere, U.S. under-23 player Andrew Wooten scored his first Bundesliga goal for Kaiserslautern, giving the visitors a 2-0 lead in the 38th minute of a 2-1 win at Hertha Berlin.
