Whenever FC Bayern München invite you into their home, cordiality only extends as far as the welcome you receive when entering the Allianz Arena and rarely when you are on the pitch.
Matchday 22's victory over SV Darmstadt 98 means the record German champions have now won their last 17 home fixtures in all competitions, thanks in no small part to the prolific partnership of Robert Lewandowski and Thomas Müller.
All ten Bundesliga goals Bayern have scored so far in 2016 have come from one of the pair, with Müller's brace enough to see off the visiting Lilies on Saturday.
For the first time in top-flight history, one single club can boast two players with more than 16 goals after 22 games of a season. Only Borussia Dortmund's Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang is holding a candle to the duo, his 21 goals sandwiching him between Lewandowski's 22 and Müller's 17 in the scoring charts. With a combined total of 39 goals, they are hot on the heels of the season record 54 set by Grafite and Edin Dzeko in VfL Wolfsburg's 2008/09 title-winning campaign.
What sets the pair even further apart, however, is the consistency with which they are delivering goals. Lewandowski has scored at least 20 times in four of his six seasons in the Bundesliga, with no other striker able even to get near to the number of goals he has scored since debuting in the top-flight in 2010: closest pursuer Stefan Kießling is 37 behind his total of 113 in that period.
Müller's own star is on the rise too with goals number 87 and 88 in a Bayern shirt taking him ahead of Claudio Pizarro and Mehmet Scholl on the Bavarians' all-time scoring chart, into sixth place on that exclusive list. Fifth-placed Giovane Elber is just four goals away, making it likely Müller will catch him before the season is out.
Müller's goals also bring with them a guarantee, with Bayern winning the last 50 games in which the 26-year-old has found the net. His second on Saturday was something special too, an overhead kick from Arturo Vidal's diagonal pass. "It was quite nice, or at least it felt it," Müller said (click here for the full post-match interview with Müller). "I took it down well with my chest and I somehow needed to hit it towards goal. But I don't want to make too big a deal about it – even if I score an ugly goal, it's worth just as much. We're just happy to have these three important points."
Italian Serie A champions Juventus will be taking good note of those statistics as they seek a way of keeping Bayern's blistering duo at bay in the last 16 of the UEFA Champions League this Tuesday. Bayern head to Turin confident their shortage of central defenders will not be an issue, given the unrivalled calibre of the men they have up front.
