Bayern Munich's top performance against Union Berlin on Sunday has seen the club enter the Bundesliga's history books. The Bavarians consolidated their league-leaders' status by running away with a 2-0 away victory, consequently taking their goal haul under new boss Hansi Flick to 50.
Despite enduring a relatively tough start against the hosts inside the empty An der Alten Forsterei stadium, it was business as usual at the end. A 40th-minute penalty by the record-breaking Robert Lewandowski ensured that Bayern was in front at the break. With 10 minutes of regulation time left to play, Benjamin Pavard doubled the lead with his second goal against Union this season.
In essence, Bayern Munich took its point tally to 58 in 26 matches, restoring the four-point lead it had over Dortmund before the resumption of the season. Relatively, the club took its goal count under new boss Hansi Flick to 50 in 16 Bundesliga matches, making the team the fastest in the league's history to reach the milestone.
