Bayern Munich look to equal historic record 

With Bayern Munich hosting Stuttgart at the Allianz Arena on Sunday evening, the record champions have the opportunity to equal an ancient club record. Under former head coach Udo Lattek, Bayern were able to score in 64 consecutive home league games that came to an end in 1974.

Der Rekordmeister were last left frustrated on home soil in 2020, when RB Leipzig claimed a 0-0 draw in Bavaria. However, since then, Bayern have scored in their last 63 home league games, making the Allianz Arena one of Europe’s most perilous destinations for travelling sides.

This was a record that Bayern Munich were hoping to beat on Sunday, but their previous home game against Union Berlin was postponed due to heavy snowfall in Munich. Therefore, the rescheduled fixture set for Wednesday, January 24, 2024, will allow the record champions to set a new club record.

Regardless, this will be a difficult feat for Bayern to achieve. Stuttgart have been in excellent form under Sebastian Hoeneß, establishing themselves as one of the most feared sides in the Bundesliga. For the Swabians, a title race is certainly still on the cards, and Bayern head coach Thomas Tuchel explained how his side have to be prepared for Sunday’s anticipated clash during a press conference:

“It’s a top game against a very difficult opponent. This is a big challenge. We know the importance of this game. It’s not the season finale. But after a defeat in the league, we obviously want to react there too.”
