Borussia Dortmund break Bundesliga points record with thumping victory over Freiburg

Jurgen Klopp's side have another impressive milestone to add to their collection after dismantling their fellow league side to overtake Bayern's previous tally

Borussia Dortmund have broken the Bundesliga record for most points in a single season after thumping Freiburg 4-0 at home on Saturday.

BVB have finished the campaign on 81 points, three ahead of the previous record held by Bayern Munich who recorded 78 during the 1998-99 season.

Polish duo Robert Lewandowski and Jakub Blaszczykowski both grabbed doubles in the convincing victory to round off Dortmund's second consecutive Bundesliga title in fashion.

Jurgen Klopp's side's tally also beats Bayern's tallies from the 1971-72 and 1972-73 campaigns, which both would have been 79 points if teams at the time received three for a win.

Dortmund will be looking to complete a domestic double when they face Jupp Heynckes' men in the DFB Pokal final next weekend.
