Bayern's unstoppable duo: Müller and Lewandowski

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.

Watch: Müller's reaction to his brace against Darmstadt

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.
