Bayern Munich Awkwardly Celebrate Bundesliga Title In Empty Stadium
By Mike Parrott
Bayern Munich became the first team to win the league after the return of European football. However, the title ceremony shows that any team close to winning the league in their respective country shouldn't be too excited.
Bayern Munich successfully won their eighth straight Bundesliga yesterday. An incredible record, even for a team as big as Bayern. However the title ceremony won't be forgotten anytime soon.
Due to the coronavirus pandemic, fans across Europe aren't allowed to enter stadiums - and with mass gatherings currently banned, the only thing Bayern Munich could do was to celebrate in an empty ground.
There will also be no parade either, although you would expect the club to have one after the current restrictions have been lifted.

Look away now, Liverpool fans.
With the club on course to win the Premier League as early as this week if results go their way, this won't be the best way to celebrate breaking the infamous 30-year streak without a league title. The celebrations seemed very awkward between the Bayern players and the "crowd" which was their ownership with less than 20 people.

Even though players such as Troy Deeney have called Liverpool's likely triumph "spoiled", it is of course a league title - their first in the Premier League era, which no one can take away from them.
Liverpool have been on an incredible run this season and are currently 25 points ahead of Manchester City in second. The Merseyside Reds have only dropped five points this season after drawing against Manchester United and losing to Watford.
