Bayern aim to break records in Gladbach

Postby FCBayernNews » Fri May 17, 2013 4:50 pm

The fixtures were set up so nicely, or so it must have seemed last August. Matchday 32 featured Bayern versus Dortmund, serving up the possibility of a final showdown for the title on the last day, with Dortmund at home to Hoffenheim and Bayern away to Mönchengladbach. But it has all turned out differently: FCB have utterly dominated the domestic season and sealed the championship crown after just 28 matches.

Nevertheless, the game away to Borussia on Saturday (Live in English from 3.30 pm CET on FCB.tv Web Radio) is not without meaning, as there are still records to break. And, added Jupp Heynckes: "We want to maintain our run and rhythm, and win the match in Gladbach." If so, Bayern would complete the best second half of the season in Bundesliga history, and also stock up on confidence ahead of the Champions League final on 25 May. However, Heynckes does not regard his final contest in the Bundesliga, which takes place in his home town against his favourite club, as a dress rehearsal for Wembley: "The countdown doesn't start until Tuesday," he stated.

It means the focus remains exclusively on Mönchengladbach. "It's a balancing act, but naturally we're capable of managing it," said the coach, "we're in good shape and we have hard work to do." The idea of tolerating a defeat or avoiding injury "have no place in our thinking," Heynckes continued, "in the current situation there won't be any more rotation."

That could well mean a final outing for the team to face BVB at Wembley a week later. Bayern will be at full strength after all the club's fit players came through Friday's training session unscathed. The only definite absentees are long-term injury victims Toni Kroos and Holger Badstuber, and the suspended Rafinha.

Favre: We'll be motivated

Borussia are three points off Eintracht Frankfurt in sixth and require a freak, combination of results to snatch a place in Europe next season, but will still take the Bayern clash very seriously. The only possible selection problem for coach Lucien Favre is at centre back, where Roel Brouwers is standing by to deputise for Alvaro Dominguez (sprain). "We want to turn in a very good performance, and that'll be necessary too if we're to survive against Bayern," the Swiss boss said.

"They're having a superb season and they're more complete than ever," continued Favre, "they have every conceivable weapon. It's very impressive." For all that, Gladbach firmly believe they have a chance on their home ground, and also suspect FCB may yet be more focused on a certain match a week from now. The home side will be motivated too, said Favre: "Facing a team like this is the best form of motivation for every player."

Does anyone have a list of all records we broke this season? I read earlier we could break a 23rd one this weekend, which is nice considering we did it for our 23rd tiitle.

Wins, points, goals - Champions Bayern pursue yet more records

25.04.2013 wrote:Bayern have already set new records for…

the earliest and fastest title triumph: both in terms of matchdays (28 / previously: 30, Bayern 1972/73 and 2002/03) and the date (6 April / previously: 18 April, FC Köln 1963/64)
the best goal difference after the first half of a season: +37 (previously: +33, Bayern 2011/12)
the fewest goals against in the first half of a season: 7 (level with Stuttgart, 2003/04)
the fewest away goals against in the first half of a season: 1 (previously 2, Stuttgart 2003/04)
best start to a season: 8 wins (previously: 7 wins, Bayern 1995/96, Kaiserslautern 2001/02, Mainz 2010/11)
the first five away matches of a season without conceding a goal


Bayern will definitely set new records for…

the most points: currently 81 (level with Dortmund 2011/12)
the most away points: currently 43 (previously: 37, Dortmund 2011/12, Bremen 2003/04)
the most wins in a season: currently 26 (previously: 25, Dortmund 2011/12, Bayern 1972/73)
the most away wins: currently 14 (previously: 11, Dortmund 2011/12, Bremen 2003/04)
the longest winning streak within a season: currently 13 wins (previously: 10, Mönchengladbach 1986/87 and Wolfsburg 2008/09)
the longest winning streak including season overlaps: currently 13 wins (previously: 11, Bayern, March to September 2005)
the longest winning streak away from home: currently 9 wins (previously: 8, Dortmund 2010/11)
best start to the second half of a season: currently 13 wins (previously: 7, Dortmund 2011/12)
the most matches without conceding a goal in a season: currently 19 (level with Bremen 1987/88 and Bayern 2001/02)


Bayern can still beat or equal the records for…

the most goals scored (101, Bayern 1971/72) / Bayern currently: 89
the most away goals (43, Bremen 2006/07) / Bayern currently: 37
the fewest goals against (21, Bayern 2007/08) - Bayern currently: 14
the fewest away goals against (5, Bremen 92/93) / Bayern currently: 3
at least one goal in every match (as achieved by Köln 1963/64)
the best goal difference (+64, Bayern 1972/73) / Bayern currently: +75
the biggest lead over the team in second (16 points, Bayern 2002/03 / Bayern currently: 20 points
the fewest defeats (1, Bayern 1986/87) / Bayern currently: 1
the fewest away defeats (0, Bayern 1986/87) / Bayern currently: 0


Notice the date of this article, some records are already our.

Unless I'm mistaken that's 19 so far, with a good chance of another 4 (fewest away goals against, one goal in every match, fewest defeats and fewest away defeats), taking the total to the 23 I mentioned. There's also an unlikely possibility of most away goals (we need 5 to equal it) and most goals (we need 7 to equal it).

I will organise it all into a blog article next week if the Bayern site doesn't do it. :)
