After following up the competition's first ever 8-2 win against Barcelona in the quarter-finals with a 3-0 victory over Lyon in the last four, Bayern set a new record for goals in a single UEFA Champions League campaign since the second group stage was replaced by knockout ties.

However, their 1-0 win in the final against Paris ultimately left them two goals short of the record set by Barcelona, in their 16-game run to the last four in 1999/2000.

The truncated nature of the 2019/20 season means that Bayern amassed their total in 11 matches rather than the usual 13, making theirs the best goals per game ratio in a single UEF Champions League season. Their 1-0 final win against Paris means they are also the first side to win 11 successive games in the UEFA Champions League.
