Bayern clock up record 80 goals in 27 matches
Two matches, seven goals! Bayern picked up where they left off before the coronavirus break, downing Eintracht Frankfurt 5-2 and setting a new record. FC Bayern boast 80 goals after Matchday 27, more than any other team in Bundesliga history.
Lewandowski leads from the front
Robert Lewandowski is the spearhead in Munich's attacking unit. Against Eintracht, the Poland captain netted his 27th goal so far this campaign. But if the Bundesliga top scorer stands out, it is not because his teammates do not stand tall. Thomas Müller for instance is in top form, shining both as provider and scorer.
In addition, the defenders joined the attack on a number of occasions on Saturday. Alphonso Davies set up one and scored another goal against Frankfurt. Except for Jérôme Boateng, all of Bayern's outfield players were involved in shots at goal in the first half. "We displayed a certain doggedness from the first minute," Müller said after the final whistle.
Solid defence as perfect foundation
Bayern's defence is crucial for their strong attack. Manuel Neuer had gone 516 minutes without conceding and kept five consecutive clean sheets until Martin Hinteregger bagged a brace. Thanks to their solid defence, Bayern are able to impose their game and let their attack shine, which is exactly what they will need in the exciting title race.
