The man with the number 25 on his back and his FC Bayern team were denied victory this Saturday afternoon in Berlin. Thomas Müller and FCB were held to a 1-1 draw by Union Berlin in a battle between two in-form Bundesliga teams. Despite the result, the 32-year-old Bayern legend still had reason to cheer. Replacing Jamal Musiala after 62 minutes, Müller became FC Bayern's record appearance-maker since their promotion to the Bundesliga in 1965. Having already equalled CEO Oliver Kahn's 632 games in the 5-0 cup win against Viktoria Köln in midweek, Müller has now usurped 'The Titan' in the record books. Müller played his very first competitive match for FCB's first team on 15 August 2008, against Hamburger SV.

"Too often the final ball was lacking. That's why we've drawn here today.  We played a decent game, but not a great game and not one we can be satisfied with," Müller opined after the Union draw. At the same time, the boy from Bavaria was already looking ahead to the upcoming Champions League opener at Inter Milan on Wednesday: "We'll try to be energetic again, which will put us in better positions more often, and we we'll try to win the game. We're looking forward to our first Champions League night of the season."
