It now stands at 67... Bayern celebrated a well-deserved 4-1 win at Hertha BSC on Sunday evening and were once again able to rely on their outstanding attacking prowess. The Munich side have now scored at least once in each of their last 67 Bundesliga games, which further extends Bayern's own Bundesliga record. In the capital, the record champions almost created enough chances for two matches, as you can see in the stats behind the game.

1. Shot-fest in Germany's capital

Bayern had a total of 19 shots on target in Berlin. With that, FCB set a record for most number of shots on target a side has had in a single Bundesliga match since this type of data has been recorded in detail (2004/05).

One of the 19 shots on goal: Thomas Müller's goal to make it 2-0.

2. Bayern outshoot Hertha

Bayern had a total of 30 attempts on goal this evening, setting a new record this season. In Leroy Sané, Robert Lewandowski (six apiece), Thomas Müller and Serge Gnabry (five each), four Bayern players had at least as many attempts as the home team had in total: Hertha could only muster five shots in the 90 minutes by comparison to their trigger-happy visitors.

3. Best attack in history

After the Hertha game, Bayern now have 65 goals for the season - no team in the history of the Bundesliga has ever achieved that amount after just 20 games. By way of comparison, when Bayern set the record of 101 goals at the end of the 1971/72 Bundesliga season - a record that still stands today - they'd 'only' scored 50 goals by this juncture in the season.

4. Gnabry makes double figures again

Mr Reliable: Serge Gnabry made it his sixth Bundesliga season with at least 10 goals in Berlin.

Serge Gnabry scored the goal to make it 4-0, his tenth of the season. With the strike, the 26-year-old has again reached double figures in what is his sixth Bundesliga season. Since the start of the 2016/17 campaign, only Robert Lewandowski has also managed to score at least ten league goals every season.
