Congrats Bayern Munich!

Watching your club win a title is always memorable. One lucky fan in particular this week will remember it for very special reasons though.
Celtic may have won the Scottish Premier League as far back as mid-April, but yesterday’s 4-0 home win over rivals St Johnstone signed off their final home game in style.
The Scottish club, who claimed their 44th division title with ease last month, were finally able to parade their medals and the famous trophy at their Celtic Park ground after the game.
The biggest story was still to come however. Manager Neil Lennon, who has been linked with the soon-to-be-vacated manager’s job, cherished the title victory but handed his medal to a lucky young Celtic fan in the crowd.
Watch the video to see just how gobsmacked the little girl is. Brilliant!
What a finish!
Porto’s Kelvin scored this wonderful goal in the 91st minute Saturday to beat Benfica 2-1 and unseat them at the top of the Primeira Liga with just one more match to play. It may very well have decided the title, as Porto (still undefeated in league play) can clinch with a win next weekend.
As the goal was struck, Benfica coach Jorge Jesus fell to his knees, knowing his team may have just blown the championship. Poor Benfica, but hey, at least they can grab some silverware on Wednesday, when they play Chelsea in the Europa League final (2p ET on FOX Soccer)
Ajax defeated Willem II 5-0 to secure the Eredivisie title for the third year in a row and were rewarded with a tremendous trophy presentation. Still full of adrenaline and excitement, Ajax defender Daley Blind got a little carried away during the presentation and knocked the trophy to the ground.
Thankfully, the trophy is still intact, so no harm no foul. Fast forward to the :28 mark to see Blind’s blunder.
The Barclays Premier League trophy slipped further from Manchester City’s grasp after the champion lost 3-1 at Southampton on Saturday and gave Manchester United the opportunity to surge 12 points clear.
A spirited Saints side were 2-1 up by the break and Gareth Barry compiled a nightmare afternoon for the defending champions when he put through his own net after the restart, failing miserably in trying to shepherd the ball back to goalkeeper Joe Hart after Rickie Lambert had tried to pick out Jason Puncheon in the box.
The entertaining two-horse Premier League title race might have dropped to one thoroughbred following Manchester City’s flat 2-2 draw against Liverpool, leaving Manchester’s other club, United, with a commanding nine-point advantage over their noisy neighbors on Sunday night.
