It looked like the Bavarians may have to wait another week when David Alaba dragged his 27th-minute penalty wide.

Bayern took an overdue lead seven minutes after the restart with a moment of pure brilliance from Schweinsteiger.

Arjen Robben released Philipp Lahm down the right and his low drilled cross allowed Schweinsteiger to delicately flick a shot past Frankfurt goalkeeper Oka Nikolov with his heel.

Meanwhile, second-placed Borussia Dortmund won 4-2 at home to Augsburg, but could not prevent Bayern from clinched the crown after 28 of 34 rounds - two rounds quicker than their own record of winning in the 30th round in the 1972/73 and 2002/03 seasons.
