Bayern's 24-goal haul in this season's group stage was behind only Paris's 25 from 2017/18 – and their 16 away from home was a record.

Bayern München this season became the most prolific ever away team in any UEFA Champions League group stage. Their overall tally of 24 goals was the second highest recorded.

A 7-2 win at Tottenham Hotspur, 3-2 success at Olympiacos and 6-0 victory at Crvena zvezda ensured Bayern totalled 16 goals in their three group trips, four more than the previous record set by Barcelona in 2008/09 and 2011/12. Eight of those goals were scored by Robert Lewandowski from his haul of ten, just one off the record.

Lewandowski's strikes helped Bayern reach an overall tally of 24 in the group, behind only Paris Saint-Germain's record of 25 in 2017/18. Bayern also bettered Napoli's UEFA Europa League best of 22 (though Benfica's 29 goals in the 2015/16 UEFA Youth League remain the record for a six-game UEFA club group).
