After taking a run at the team goal scoring record last season, only to fade late while battling an unusually bad spell of injuries, while already having clinched the Bundesliga title early, the 2014-15 FC Bayern Munich team ended well short of 101, scoring "only" 80 goals.
But, once again, Bayern Munich has a chance to equal or surpass the Bundesliga record for the most goals scored in a season, which currently stands (and has stood for over 40 years) at 101 goals scored, and they've had a promising start.
Who are they chasing? None other than the 1971-72 Bayern team, with the likes of Franz Beckenbauer, Uli Hoeneß, Sepp Maier, and, most importantly, Gerd Müller gracing the roster.
After matchday five of the current season, Bayern stand at 15 goals scored, giving them an average of 3.0 goals per game, which puts them on pace for 102 goals.
Up next are last season's DFB Pokal winners and Bundesliga runners-up, VfL Wolfsburg, who will come to the Allianz Arena in Munich on Tuesday night for a rare midweek Bundesliga match. Though it's more of a glorified friendly, Bayern has a chance to take revenge for the loss on penalty kicks in the DFL-Supercup this August.
Number of games remaining: 29
2015-16 - 15 goals
1971-72 - 12 goals
