Record titleholders on the rampage

Munich - After two trophyless seasons, FC Bayern Munich have been back to their indomitable best as they look to make up for the mishaps of recent campaigns. The 22-time champions have been setting records left, right and centre en route to becoming the Herbstmeister , a feat they achieved with three games to spare.

After two seasons without a trophy, the record titleholders wasted little time in correcting their deficiencies, delving into the summer transfer market to strengthen their squad and shelling out a Bundesliga record fee for Spanish international Javi Martinez. The added depth and defensive stability have been central to Bayern opening up a nine-point gap at the top of the table prior to the winter break, putting them in good stead to add to their title tally in 2013.
