FCB enter Guinness World Records
As he nears the end of his career, Bayern captain Philipp Lahm added an unusual honour to his collection today. Together with Thomas Müller, the FCB captain received a certificate on behalf of the team for their entry into the Guinness World Records. Bayern have been recognised for their run of 16 consecutive home wins in the Champions League – a world record!
“You don’t get records like this very often. It’s a first time for me. Titles I have a few more of,” joked Lahm. Müller promised: “The certificate will be given a special place.” Bayern set the record from 17 September 2014 (1-0 against Manchester City) to 15 February 2017 (5-1 against Arsenal). In recent years Robert Lewandowski and Jérôme Boateng have also made it into Guinness World Records.
