Robert Lewandowski's 40th league goal of the season was the hot topic in FC Bayern's 2-2 draw away at SC Freiburg. Apart from this historic mark, the Munich team set another new record in Breisgau. Read some more facts and stats from Bayern's final away game of the season.

1. Record-breaking goalscorers

Thanks to Lewandowski's goal, FCB scored in their 34th Bundesliga away game in a row - a new league record. The last time the record holders failed to score away from home was in May 2019, when they drew 0-0 in Leipzig. Across all competitions, home, away and on neutral grounds, Bayern have now scored in 70 consecutive games. That, too, is a record run in German professional football.

2. Repeat offender Sané

After an assist from Thomas Müller, Sané scored in the 53rd minute to make it 2-1.

The second goal in Freiburg was scored by Leroy Sané. This was the first time the winger had hit the target in two consecutive games for FCB. The 25-year-old also scored last week in the 6-0 win against Gladbach.

3. Assist maestro Müller

Thomas Müller once again provided the assist for Sané's goal. With 18 assists, the attacker is by far the best provider in the league. Frankfurt's Filip Kostić and Daichi Kamada trail behind Müller with twelve apiece.

4. A debut for Nübel

Alexander Nübel was a solid back-up in Freiburg.

After two games in the Champions League and an appearance in the DFB Cup, Alexander Nübel was in goal for FCB in a Bundesliga match for the first time. Incidentally, he played his last league match on 27 June 2020 with Schalke, also away in Freiburg. With two solid saves in the 71st and 73rd minute, Nübel played an important part in the German champions' point this Saturday.

5. A strong record vs. Freiburg

Thanks to the point Bayern picked up, FCB's good record against SCF remains intact. Bayern have only lost one of their last 36 league games against Freiburg (27 wins, 8 draws): a 2-1 reverse away from home on MD33 of the 2014/15 season; exactly 6 years ago [to the matchday].
