thumbnail Hello,

Pep Guardiola's all-conquering side is in line to set a plethora of records in the coming weeks - and in many cases the club already has.

As the 2013-14 season begins to reach its business end, Bayern Munich is enjoying a period of unprecedented dominance both domestically and in Europe.

The unbeaten Bavarians are poised to shortly wrap up a second successive Bundesliga title and are in the semifinals of the DFB Pokal.

Bayern is also favored to become the first side to retain the Champions League in the modern era and is currently sweeping aside all before it in devastating fashion.

Under Jupp Heynckes and now Pep Guardiola, Bayern has been racking up a whole raft of incredible statistics and records.

Ahead of Tuesday's Champions League last 16 return leg with Arsenal, here are a selection of the club's best numbers.

0 – The number of teams which have previously retained the European Cup since the inception of the Champions League in 1992-93. Bayern is a red-hot favorite to become the first.

3 – Since the start of 2013, the Bavarian outfit has suffered only three defeats in all competitions; two of these were virtually inconsequential losses in the Champions League when qualification was already assured.

4 – Bayern Munich has spilled only four points in this season's Bundesliga, with draws coming against Freiburg and Bayer Leverkusen.

5 – The number of trophies claimed by Heynckes and Guardiola for the Allianz Arena side over the course of the last year: the Bundesliga, the DFB Pokal, the Champions League, the FIFA Club World Cup and the European Supercup.

10 – Including last season's final against Borussia Dortmund at Wembley, Bayern has won its last 10 away matches in the Champions League - a record.

16 – Saturday's 6-1 win over Wolfsburg was Bayern’s 16th consecutive Bundesliga victory, which is a record the club will want to enhance. Previously, the best was a 14-match winning streak.

20 – With a massive 20-point advantage in the Bundesliga over second-placed Borussia Dortmund, Bayern could become the earliest winner of the German title in history. Last season's April 6 date is the mark that could be broken, potentially as early as March 25.

21 – In winning the German title last term, Heynckes’ side shut its opponents out 21 times from 34 matches – a record that could yet be beaten this time around.

22 – Despite the dominance of FCB, the club's top scorers – Mario Mandzukic and Thomas Muller – only have 22 goals each this season. However, an additional three players – Franck Ribery, Mario Gotze and Arjen Robben – have all hit double figures.

47 – When Bayern was crowned winter champion of Germany, the team did so with a record points total, smashing the previous best mark of 42 that was set by the team a season earlier.

49 – The current unbeaten run of the Bavarians in the Bundesliga. They have not lost in the league since October 2012.

58 – Bayern’s form over their last 58 matches reads: WWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWLWWWWWWWWWWWDWWWWWWDDWWWWLWWWWDWWWWWWWWWWW

61 – The goal difference of the Bavarian side is greater than the number of goals any other team in the Bundesliga has even scored.

69.54 percent - Bayern has kept more possession in the Champions League this season than any other team in the competition.

72 – The number of goals the Allianz Arena outfit has scored in only 24 Bundesliga matches so far this season. The team is chasing the record total of 101.

87.18 percent - Bayern’s formidable win percentage this season

106 – Guardiola’s side has attempted 106 shots in the Champions League this season – more than any other team. Eight of these have hit the frame of the goal, again a competition high figure.

117 – From the last available 123 points in the Bundesliga, Bayern has picked up 117.

119 – Bayern is already deep into three figures in terms of goals scored, despite having played only 39 times this season.
