The eighth consecutive Bundesliga title seems like a fact for Bayern, who beat Fortuna Düsseldorf on Saturday with a double from Robert Lewandowski (5-0). The team Hansi Flick chained record after record in the league competition, which has 10 point lead over Borussia Dortmund with five games to close.
Flick, who in early November relieved Niko Kovac on the bench , has beaten a record by Pep Guardiola and becomes the first manager in Bayern history with 22 wins in his first 25 games. "I'm not interested in statistics. It's just about keeping winning and it was important not to lift my foot after the game against Dortmund," said the coach, referring to the crucial 0-1 last Tuesday at Signal Iduna Park.
Despite the loss of the injured Thiago Alcántara , Bayern again showed that the stoppage due to the pandemic does not seem to have affected their plans too much. His last loss in the Bundesliga dates from December 7 to Gladbach (2-1) and the option of the Champions League also appears on his agenda, where he has almost resolved the knockout round knockout against Chelsea (0-3).
231 goals in 317 games
And above any contingency, the Bavarian giant has a striker like Lewandowski, who with his two goals on Saturday already has 29 in 27 Bundesliga games. The Pole removed his thorn against Fortuna Düsseldorf, until now the only opponent of the tournament whom he had not been able to score.
Since his arrival in 2014, 'Lewy' has accumulated 157 goals with Bayern in the Bundesliga. If we add the Dortmund figures, 231 goals in 317 games. Ahead of the historical classification only Klaus Fischer (268 in 535) and Gerd Müller (365 in 427) resist him . Even more feasible seems to improve Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang's 31 goals in the 2017 campaign or Dieter Müller's 34 goals in the 1977 campaign .
Bayern's tenth consecutive victory, against a rival who had come from four days without losing, was conceived before the break with goals from Benjamin Pavard , Lewandowski and Mathias Jorgensen , at his own door. The second half allowed Flick to rest some of his key pieces, such as Serge Gnabry , Kingsley Coman or Thomas Müller .
