Thomas Tuchel enjoying Bayern Munich’s group stage winning streak

Records were made to be broken, but Bayern Munich is making it a lot harder for everybody else to catch them.

There are only ten instances where teams have won all six games in a single Champions League group stage, and Bayern Munich alone represent three of those ten squads. Bayern coach Thomas Tuchel is well aware of the club’s unprecedented success in the group stage and hopes that he can help keep the streak alive.

When asked about the 37-game undefeated streak, Tuchel gave all the credit to the players.

“Well, I haven’t been in all these games, but the team can be proud. It’s an unbelievable streak. It’s impressive to always stay hungry and show all the quality they have. I’m proud to be the coach of this team,” Tuchel said (via @iMiaSanMia).

Since a 1-1 draw against Atletico Madrid in December 2020, Bayern have won 16 consecutive group stage matches. The last team to defeat Bayern in the group stage was PSG in a 3-0 rout way back in September 2017.
