Bayern Munich Breaks Another Record As They Become The First Club To Win Every Single Game In Three Consecutive UCL Group Stages

No match in the Champions League is ever an easy one, regardless of how often Manchester City is paired with Shakhtar Donetsk or how many unfortunate minnows are placed in a “group of death.”

That’s not to suggest that we shouldn’t expect the imposing teams to win handily; of course not. However, if a team is fortunate enough to be playing in Europe’s top league, they will make every effort to pull off an upset.

Only 11 teams completed the group stages without a single error, demonstrating how challenging the assignment is.

On Tuesday night, Bayern Munich became the newest member of this exclusive group after defeating Inter 2-0 to record their sixth victory in the competition this year. Napoli was on track to join them as well, but under the lights at Anfield, they were unable to continue.

The statistics show what a wonderful accomplishment that is.

Indeed, an “easy game” does not exist in the Champions League. Hence, the fact that Bayern Munich have been so consistent in the Champions League confirms that they are a great side.

Nagelsmann’s class of 2022/23 is only the 11th club to go to the knockout stages of the Champions League’s 31st season without losing a point.

Only Real Madrid (2014–15 and 2011–12) had previously accomplished a flawless Champions League group stage more than once, aside from FC Bayern.

With 18 points, 18 goals scored, and only two goals allowed, Bayern has the greatest record of any side in this season’s competition, demonstrating their desire to win it all.

Anyway, pull out the nostalgia pump and plug it up to your veins because Futballnews has all those other faultless group stage runs ready for you.

AC Milan (1992-93)

The first squad to earn the accomplishment was an exceptional one.

Spartak are the ideal name for a rogue question in a pub quiz, and so are the teams they defeated. They are an odd candidate.

Barcelona (2002-03)

Amazingly, Louis van Gaal’s Netherlands team—not the Barcelona team of Johan Cruyff or Pep Guardiola—had the best group-stage performance in the history of the club.

Real Madrid (2011-12)

Madrid would have been thrilled to end Jose Mourinho’s tenure as manager with a flawless group-stage campaign because no club’s identity is more entwined with the Champions League than Real Madrid’s.

Three years later, Madrid was unbeatable once more. This time, Carlo Ancelotti was in charge, and following the Champions League draw, he would have been licking his lips.

Bayern Munich (2019-20)

Bayern won all of their Champions League games en route to the trophy, so it’s simple to presume that the team had an easy season in 2019–20.

Ajax (2021-22)

Ajax

In a list of clubs predicted to sweep their Champions League groups in the 2021–22 campaign, Ajax would not have been at the top.

Bayern Munich (2021-22)

Alaba

At least during the group stage, Bayern was the third team to win it all during the 2021–22 season.

Bayern Munich (2022-23)

In 2022–23, Bayern finished with the most points possible for the third time in four years, accomplishing the feat with a valiant 2-0 victory over Inter. They once more used Barcelona as playthings, winning 5-0 in both of their group games.

Here are all the clubs that have ever completed group stage matches with a 100% victory rate.

Bayern is their most recent addition, but it wasn’t the only record shattered.

Nagelsmann Equals Van Gaal’s Record For Bayern Munich

You need the appropriate person on the touchline for such a run, and Nagelsmann is that person.

The 35-year-old has matched a record set by one of his predecessors by winning his past 14 group stage matches in the Champions League (two with RB Leipzig, 12 with FC Bayern) by a goal differential of 47-10.

Only Louis van Gaal had previously accomplished this feat, accomplishing it with Barcelona and Bayern between 1999 and 2009.
