The year is slowly but inexorably drawing to an end, making it the perfect time to look back on what Karl-Heinz Rummenigge described as a “very emotional" 12 months, featuring “many highs, but also setbacks from time to time." fcbayern.de has pored over the records and picked out the top facts. How many matches were there altogether, how many wins, and how many goals? We review the year 2012 at Bayern.
Overall record: wins, draws, defeats and goals
In 2012, FCB contested a total of 54 matches in the Bundesliga, Champions League, DFB Cup and DFL Supercup. Germany's biggest club registered 37 victories, nine draws and only eight defeats (matches decided on penalties are classified according to the result at the end of normal and extra time, i.e. as draws).
Overall, Bayern scored 124 goals in 2012, an average of 2.3 per game, and conceded only 37 goals, an average of 0.7 per game (goals in penalty shootouts do not count).
The calendar year included 34 Bundesliga fixtures. FCB finished with the best record of any top-flight club thanks to 24 victories, with six draws and only four defeats. A total of 78 points and a goal difference of +59 (78 scored, 19 conceded) also rank as the best in the league for the year.
The Reds treated their fans to four goals or more in a single match 11 times during the year. The highlight was the week from 10 to 17 March, in which Bayern scored 20 goals and conceded only one in three matches, which were simultaneously the biggest wins of the year: 7-1 against Hoffenheim on 10 March, 7-0 against Basel on 13 March, and 6-0 against Hertha Berlin on 17 March.
