It continued Julian Nagelsmann’s side’s perfect start to their Champions League campaign, having already completed victories away to Inter and at home to Barcelona respectively to put themselves in control of the group and as heavy favorites to progress through to the Round of 16.
Bayern is no stranger to straightforward progress in the competition and Tuesday night’s victory set a new Champions League record. It was their 31 st group-stage game in succession in which they had avoided defeat – a longer streak than any other team has ever managed.
It has been over five years since the German giants have tasted defeat at this stage of the Champions League. That was all the way back in September 2017 when they crashed to a three-goal defeat at Paris Saint-Germain when Dani Alves, Edinson Cavani, and Neymar were all on the scoresheet for the hosts.
Since then, Bayern has gone unbeaten through this stage of the competition and their remarkable record has continued so far this campaign. They are arguably in the toughest group of the tournament alongside Inter and Barcelona but have continued their relentless winning form.
