MUNICH (AP) — Bayern Munich finally celebrated winning its 24th German championship on Saturday after the last Bundesliga game of the season.

Club captain Philipp Lahm lifted the championship shield to kick off the party in a sea of red and white confetti, after Claudio Pizarro's injury time strike secured a 1-0 win over Stuttgart.

The traditional wheat-beer showers followed with Pep Guardiola, in particular, singled out for attention by his jubilant players. The former Barcelona coach helped Bayern defend its title with a record seven games to spare in his first season in charge.

Around 15,000 fans later greeted the side at Marienplatz in the city center for the presentation of the league trophy from the town hall balcony, according to the traditional title celebrations.

The party was expected to last long into the night.
