Bayern München can't seem to lose under Hansi Flick. The Bavarian side managed to earn one more hard-fought trophy under their German boss while also securing some new records to add to their massive history in European football.
One of the records accomplished by Bayern with today's win comes as a token of their consistency under Flick. The German boss has been in charge for 38 games, and 35 of those have ended in a win. Needless to say, Flick's success average is one of the best in football history, and if that was not enough, he led Bayern to beat a record formerly owned by Real Madrid.

"Bayern is the first team from any of the Top 5 European leagues to record 23 consecutive wins in competitive games. They have surpassed the previous record by Carlo Ancelotti's Real Madrid, who accomplished 22 consecutive wins between September and December 2014."

On that matter, Flick has turned into the second German coach to lift the UEFA Super Cup title. Care to find out who was the first one?

Before that no German manager had lifted that trophy. Gewinner. #SuperCup pic.twitter.com/yOpwN71Bs8— OptaFranz (@OptaFranz) September 24, 2020
Last, but not least, Javi Martínez became the first Bayern München player to find the back of the net in two different international games while on extra time. Both of them were crucial to see Bayern lift the title.
