Earliest title win: Bayern have won their 24th German league title with seven games to go. Guardiola’s team have improved on the record set by Jupp Heynckes’ eleven last season (Matchday 28). This is the first time in the history of the Bundesliga a club has won the title in March.

Longest successful run: FCB have gone 52 games undefeated in the Bundesliga (46 wins, 6 draws) and have smashed the record previously held by Hamburg SV (36 games, 1982/83). In the top five European leagues (Germany, England, France, Italy, Spain) only AC Milan have achieved a longer run (58 games, 1991-93).

Longest winning run: Bayern secured a 19th league win on the bounce at Hertha Berlin. It is almost six months since the last time Bayern failed to win when they drew 1-1 at Bayer Leverkusen in October 2013. FCB set the previous record with 15 wins in succession in 2005.

Longest run of away wins: FCB clocked up a tenth away win on the trot in Berlin, thereby beating last season’s record of nine wins.

Starting record: Bayern have not lost any of the 27 Bundesliga games played this season (previous record: 24, Leverkusen, 2009/10).

Longest run of goals: The Reds have scored at least one goal in the last 64 league games. The last time Bayern drew a blank was almost two years ago (0-0 against Mainz in April 2012).

All home games won in a season: That would also be a first. Three clubs currently hold the record of 16 wins (in 17 home games): Schalke 1971/72, FC Bayern 1972/73, VfL Wolfsburg 2008/09.
