Bayern Claim New League Records in Mainz Win

Bayern Munich claimed two Bundesliga records on Friday as Bastian Schweinsteiger and Arjen Robben scored in their 2-1 comeback win at Mainz which left them 14 points clear.

Pep Guardiola’s Bayern have conceded only four goals for the first half of the season to break their own joint record of seven from 2012/2013 which had matched Stuttgart’s previous best mark in the 2003/04 campaign.

With 14 wins from 17 league matches and three draws, unbeaten Bayern have taken 45 from a possible 51 points to break their own record of 44 points at the same stage last season when they won the title with a record seven matches to spare.

“Of course, we are really happy with the win, but I do feel sorry for Mainz, they left everything out on the pitch and had deserved a point,” said Robben, who scored the 89th-minute winner and claimed his 101st goal for the Bavarians. “We didn’t do so well in the first half and left a lot of holes in midfield, but compliments to the team for getting the win, which wasn’t easy.”

With the Bundesliga set to pause for winter on Sunday, Bayern will finish the year at least 11 points clear and are on course to break more records in 2015. The Bavarian giants claimed 25 Bundesliga records in 2013 when they won the treble of European, league and cup titles – the first German team to achieve the feat.
