MOST COMMENTED

Defending German treble winner Bayern Munich is on course to break 10 records this season, ESPN reports. The Bavarian giant currently has a 19-point advantage at the top of the Bundesliga standings with 12 games to go, and is currently unbeaten in its last 47 games in the league.

Pep Guardiola’s men could also break the following records: becoming the German team to go an entire season unbeaten; being the first team to finish with a 100 percent home record; topping last season’s record-setting total of 91 points from 34 games; becoming the first team to win the Bundesliga in March, as well as surpassing last season’s record 25-point margin over the second-place team in the German first division.

With a win against Schalke 04 at home this weekend, the club could also secure a record 15 straight league victories. By scoring at least two goals, Bayern could become the first team to have scored at least two goals in 15 consecutive games. Defensively, Bayern could also surpass last season’s record of 18 goals conceded during an entire season with just nine goals conceded so far; it could also best last season’s record 21 shutouts, having already achieved 14.

While Bayern’s players insist that titles are more important than records, Matthias Sammer, the club’s sporting director, tells kicker, “You will appreciate records in years to come. Those stats make me proud -- there is something eternal about them.”
