FC Bayern are out of the Champions League but the Reds have set a new club record in the process. Pep Guardiola’s men scored 33 goals in Europe’s elite club competition this term, beating their previous best of 31 in the 2012/13 campaign. Germany’s most successful club stand a reasonable chance of finishing the season as the top scorers in the Champions League, as FC Barcelona are still three goals off the men from Munich on 28.
Martínez back on the big stage
Welcome back, Javi Martínez! The Spaniard made his Champions League comeback in the 3-2 win over Barcelona, his first appearance at the elite European level since last season’s semi-final return against Real Madrid. Javi was sidelined for most of the current campaign after rupturing a cruciate ligament in pre-season and only returned to the Bundesliga fray ten days ago.
Maiden strike for Benatia
Mehdi Benatia handed FC Bayern the start they were looking for against Barça with his seventh-minute headed goal. It was the Morocco international’s first strike in the Champions League in his seventh outing in the competition, and was also Bayern’s seventh headed goal in the current edition of the Champions League, more than any other team at the present time.
