Every move made by a Bayern player on the field of play is measured and recorded these days – and just as in all of the recent years, Germany’s record champions set new best marks in 2015. fcbayern.de has compiled the best of the facts and figures, for the first half of the current season and for the calendar year.

8 – A mere eight goals conceded makes the FC Bayern defence the best in the Bundesliga. Munich have kept 11 clean sheets in 17 games so far.

56 – Munich went a record 56 matches unbeaten prior to the midpoint of the Bundesliga season (47 wins, nine draws). The incredible run only ended with the 3-1 defeat at Mönchengladbach.
