Wolfsburg Bundesliga Champions 2009

[BERLIN, May 23]
Wolfsburg 5-1 Werder Bremen

A superb 5-1 home win over UEFA Cup and DFB Pokal finalists Werder Bremen has seen VfL Wolfsburg claim their first ever Bundesliga title. The Wolves stormed into a three goal lead only to see Diego pull one back for the visitors.

However, Grafite added a fourth early in the second 45 minutes to seal a great victory and start the title winning party inside the Volkswagen Arena. Edin Dzeko then added a fifth to make he and Grafite the most prolific strike duo in Bundesliga history.

Felix Magath's team finished the season with 69 points, two ahead of last year's champion, Bayern Munich, which edged Stuttgart 2-1. Magath, who has also won two titles with Bayern, is leaving to coach Schalke next season.
