Hansi Flick's Bayern Munich record in numbers

Just over a year after succeeding Niko Kovac as interim coach, Hansi Flick is now on the verge of his 50th competitive match in charge of Bayern Munich when they host Werder Bremen on Matchday 8.

It's been 12 months of unparalleled success that have seen Germany's most decorated club bolster their trophy collection numerous times, break all sorts of records and sweep aside almost all comers at home and abroad.

bundesliga.com looks at the numbers behind Flick's first half century of games in the Bayern hotseat…

3.3

From 31 Bundesliga matches under the FIFA World Cup-winning assistant coach, Bayern have scored a total of 102 goals. That works out at 3.3 per game, which is the highest average of any coach in the league's history.

5

Those 49 matches to date have seen Bayern lift five different trophies: the Bundesliga, DFB Cup, UEFA Champions League, UEFA Supercup and DFL Supercup. The Munich side will be going for a sixth in February's FIFA Club World Cup.

Flick is the fifth coach to guide Bayern to the European title, after Udo Lattek (1974), Dettmar Cramer (1975, 1976), Ottmar Hitzfeld (2001) and Jupp Heynckes (2013). He's just the second, though, to win the treble, after Heynckes.

Perhaps more remarkable, however, is that the 55-year-old has in fact won more titles (5) than matches he's not won (4).

8

Perhaps the most famous number of Flick's spell in charge came on 14 August at Lisbon's Estadio da Luz as Bayern put EIGHT past Barcelona in a Champions League quarter-final thrashing. It was the first time FCB had scored eight since February 2017 against Hamburg, the first time ever a team had netted so many in a Champions League knockout game and the first time the Catalans had conceded eight since 1946.

On top of that, all eight goals were assisted by different players.

11

Flick's record in the Champions League is quite simply flawless, winning all 11 matches he's overseen. Eleven straight victories is the longest winning run by any coach in the competition, surpassing the 10 that one of his predecessors, Carlo Ancelotti, managed with Real Madrid.

The Bavarians have scored 42 goals in those 11 games, conceding just seven. They have trailed in just one of them.

18

As well as 34 league games, Flick has also been on the touchline for 18 matches in other competitions. Again, he has a blemish-free record here, having won all 18.

22

Bayern's scoring power has been frightening under Flick and they have recorded four or more goals in 22 of their 49 games. It's five or more 10 times, six or more six times and eight twice. They have been limited to just one goal or fewer only eight times.

23

Following the 0-0 draw at home to RB Leipzig on 9 February - the only draw and blank of Flick's tenure - Bayern went on a run of 23 straight victories in all competitions, setting a new record for a professional German club at any level.

32

Even prior to that Leipzig game, the Munich club hadn't lost a game since 7 December 2019 (2-1 at Borussia Mönchengladbach). Between that defeat and the one at Hoffenheim on 27 September (4-1), they'd been unbeaten in 32 competitive fixtures.

38

Flick has used 38 different players during his year in charge, of which 21 have scored at least one goal. Thomas Müller is the most used, having featured in 48 of the 49 games.

45

The former DFB sporting director has won a remarkable 45 of his 49 competitive games in charge.

48

Only one team has stopped Flick's Bayern from scoring, which was Leipzig in that goalless draw in February. Otherwise, they have got on the scoresheet in 48 of Flick's 49 matches.

82

Flick's points tally in the Bundesliga is one that some teams would need two seasons to reach, while his 31 league games isn't even a full campaign yet. His record to date is 27 wins, one draw and three losses, and equates to 82 points. That total would've won the league in all but four seasons since three points for a win was introduced in 1995/96.

The total is also more than 13 clubs have ever achieved in the Bundesliga (using three points for a win) and, for example, is double what Union Berlin managed in their maiden top-flight campaign last season.

87

Those 27 victories from 31 games mean Flick has a win rate of 87 percent in the Bundesliga, which is a league record. Pep Guardiola follows in second on 80 percent.

92

Joachim Löw's former Germany assistant also has the best record of any Bayern coach from their first 50 matches. Looking at all competitions, Flick's win rate stands at 92 percent (W45, D1, L3), coming out ahead of Guardiola (80 percent), Heynckes in 2017/18 (79 percent from 42 games), Ancelotti (72 percent) and Ottmar Hitzfeld (70 percent).

Flick's team is also well ahead in terms of goals scored (163). Pep's crop follow with 138.

99

Since the draw with Leipzig, Flick's side have played 34 competitive matches. That equates to a full Bundesliga season and would've seen Bayern amass 99 points (W33, L1), which would be eight more than the league record set by Heynckes' treble winners. The goal difference would also be +83, having scored 115 and conceded just 32.

163

In total, Bayern have scored 163 goals from their 49 matches with Flick in charge. As in the Bundesliga, it works out at over 3.3 per game.
