FC Bayern München landed the German championship on Tuesday night – it was another major high in the midst of an extraordinary 12-month spell which has brought two Bundesliga titles and a German Cup, as well as glory in the UEFA Champions League, UEFA Super Cup and FIFA Club World Cup. Records have been broken left, right and centre, and as UEFA.com discovers, more milestones could yet be reached.
• Successive UEFA Champions League wins: Bayern became the first team to win ten successive UEFA Champions League games on matchday five, surpassing the previous record of nine straight victories set by FC Barcelona between 18 September 2002 and 18 February 2003.
• Fastest Bundesliga title: Bayern have claimed the quickest Bundesliga title in history, making their success mathematically certain with seven matchdays remaining (out of 34); they set the existing record last season when Jupp Heynckes's side were declared champions after 28 games.
• Longest Bundesliga winning run: Bayern have now extended their Bundesliga winning streak to 19 matches – they broke the existing record of 15, set by the Bavarians under Felix Magath in 2005, by triumphing 6-1 at VfL Wolfsburg on 8 March.
• Longest Bundesliga unbeaten run: The fixture in Berlin was Bayern's 52nd without defeat in the league; the previous record of 36 was established by Hamburger SV from 1982–83.
• Longest unbeaten start to a Bundesliga season: Bayern have gone 27 games without losing since the beginning of the campaign; they eclipsed the existing best of 24, achieved by Bayer 04 Leverkusen in 2009/10, with a 2-1 success over Leverkusen on 15 March.
• Best away run (Bundesliga): Bayern have won their last ten away matches in the top flight, surpassing the record of nine they themselves created last term. They have also survived 33 away games unbeaten (W29 D4) – outstripping their own German top-flight record from between December 1985 and August 1987.
• Longest scoring run: Bayern have scored in 64 consecutive league outings – matching Barcelona's record for clubs in Europe's elite leagues (England, France, Germany, Italy, Spain), posted partially under current Bayern coach Josep Guardiola. Moreover, they have scored at least twice in their last 19 league games.
• Longest 100% record (player): Thiago Alcántara has attained a unique mark by ending up on the winning side in all 15 of his Bundesliga appearances.
• Best Croatian Bundesliga scorer: Mario Mandžukić's tally of 17 is the highest by any Croatian player in a single Bundesliga season; he is bidding to become the first Croatian to win the Bundesliga golden boot.
Still to be broken:
• Highest Bundesliga points tally: Bayern finished last term with a record 91 points; should they win all their remaining fixtures, they will surpass that with 98 and would also be the first team to last a Bundesliga campaign unbeaten.
• Most wins in a Bundesliga season: The existing record is 29, accomplished by Bayern last season; they currently have 25.
• Fewest Bundesliga goals conceded in a single season: Bayern's 18 goals conceded last term was a new low; they have shipped just 13 this time round.
• Most Bundesliga clean sheets in a single season: Bayern hit the mark with 21 in 2012/13; they presently have 15.
• Biggest winning points margin at the end of a Bundesliga season: Bayern completed the 2012/13 campaign 25 points clear of second-placed Borussia Dortmund; they currently have a 25-point lead over Dortmund.
• Biggest positive goal difference: Bayern are +66 now but ended last season with a record +80. They may struggle to beat their highest goals haul for a campaign (101 in 1971/72); they would need to average more than three a game for the rest of term to better that.
• First team to finish a Bundesliga season with a 100% home record: They have 13 wins from 13 so far. Four more to go.
• Scoring in every game in a Bundesliga season: They are on course to repeat the feat they achieved in 2012/13.
• First team to win consecutive UEFA Champions Leagues: Since the European Cup took its current form in 1992/93 no side has successfully defended the crown. Lining up against Manchester United FC in next month's quarter-finals, Bayern are tipped to alter that statistic on 24 May in Lisbon.
