Perched on the horizion are a whole number of Bundesliga records just waiting to be smashed, as bundesliga.com finds out...
With 24 Bundesliga games already under their belts, Bayern have chalked up more points (63) than any other team at this juncture. 30 points are still up for grabs, as is Borussia Dortmund's record points haul of 81, achieved last term.
17 points currently separate league leaders Bayern and second-placed Dortmund in the table. Should the Bavarians maintain such a colossal lead between now and the season's end, they'll trump their own 16-point record of 2002/03 when they kept VfB Stuttgart at bay en route to a 17th Bundesliga crown.
At this rate Bayern are also going to get their paws on the Meisterschale much, much sooner than usual. In 1973 and again in 2003, the Munich Reds were crowned champions after Matchday 30. On current form, the title could be theirs as early as Matchday 28.
Bayern's net has been breached just eight times in 24 Bundesliga games so far this season. They, too, hold the current record for least goals conceded in a single season - a comparatively cumbersome-looking 21 (2007/08).
Another record Bayern look like smashing is one they share with Dortmund for most wins in a season. 20 from 24 so far mean Jupp Heynckes' men only require another six to trump their efforts of 1972/73, matched 39 years later by Dortmund.
Werder Bremen hold the record for most clean sheets (19) in a single season, but Bayern have already managed 17 and also have the Green-Whites' best mark of five goals conceded away from home (1992/93) in their sights, having let in only one on their travels all season - at Nuremberg on Matchday 12.
In each of their last 27 Bundesliga outings, Bayern have found the net at least once. Should they keep firing at the same rate in their next ten league assignments, Mario Mandzukic and Co. can be sure of smashing the current record of scoring in 36 consecutive games, set by Bayern themselves in the 1973/74 campaign.
The Matchday 24 win at 1899 Hoffenheim, Bayern's only 1-0 win of the campaign, was their 11th away from home in 2012/13. Never before has a team managed 12 wins on foreign soil in a solitary season.
FC Köln are the only team to have scored in every Bundesliga game in a single season, but that was back in 1963/64 when only 16 teams contested the division over 30 Matchdays - four less than the modern-day version.
Bayern coach Heynckes celebrates his 68th Birthday on 9 May 2013 and with that would fittingly become the oldest title-winning coach of the Bundesliga era at the club he guided to back-to-back Bundesliga titles in 1989 and 1990.
