A new record for the most goals for a club in one season has been set by Bayern Munich, in the 57-year history of the Bundesliga.
The attacking ability of the champion has gone up another notch under Flick. The 55-year-old coach has celebrated 61 goals for Bayern in 19 league matches, more than any other Bundesliga coach has supervised in such a short period.
However, this isn’t as important for Flick itself. He’s concentrating on more important things: “Right now I’m not interested in numbers and records. All I care about is finishing a good season. You’ve got to be champions at FC Bayern and we have that goal,” the coach said after the game.
The side from Munich have scored an amazing 86 goals after 29 games after the romp against the Rhine men.
Bayern’s designated goal scorer, Robert Lewandowski, scored the final two goals of the match, which incidentally also broke the Bundesliga record in favour of Bayern. This record-breaking goal came as no surprise to anyone, even though the Pole had to wait for his standards for the goal for quite a long time.
Lewandowski finished a magnificent move in the 43rd minute to make it 3-0. That was his first goal in his sixth appearance against Düsseldorf, which means that the 31-year-old scored against all 18 Bundesliga clubs.
Lewandowski then sowed he had tasted blood shortly after the break and scored a second goal to make it four. For the exceptional striker, a mark which matched his personal record in professional football, it was the 43rd goal in all competitions this season: he also scored 43 goals in the 2016/17 season.
