11 more victories will take Neuer to the top of the list, breaking Oliver Kahn’s record of 310 league wins.

Bayern Munich and milestones go hand-in-hand. It applies to not just the club but the players as well. We witness Robert Lewandowski breaking and setting records week-in, week-out that sometimes it gets hard to keep track of all the achievements. The same goes for team captain Manuel Neuer.

Neuer earned his 300th Bundesliga victory – in his 447th league game – on Saturday as the Rekordmeister beat Hoffenheim 4-0 at a fully-packed Allianz Arena. The goalkeeper is now just 11 wins short of breaking the all-time record held by Bayern legend and current club CEO Oliver Kahn (310), the only player ahead of Neuer on the list.

The 5-0 win against Hertha Berlin in the third league fixture of the season saw the 35-year-old break Kahn’s record of most clean sheets in the German top-flight. Neuer currently has a total of 207 clean sheets in 447 games (46.4%), three more than Kahn’s 204 in 557 games (36.6%).

Will the skipper be able to break Kahn’s record of 310 league victories in just 11 matches or is it going to take more time and effort than that?
