Bayern Munich had an amazing season and successfully defended their German Bundesliga title at the end of the memorable campaign.
The Bavarians won their record-extending eighth consecutive title and 30th title overall (29th in the Bundesliga era) on 16 June 2020 with two games to spare.
With 100 goals scored in 34 matches, Bayern became the second side to reach this milestone in a Bundesliga season.
This is after the record 101 goals the Bavarians previously managed to score in the 1971/72 campaign and they were crowned German champions for the third time at the end of the term.
One of their key players, Thomas Muller set a new Bundesliga record since data collection began in 1992/93 season of 21 as he surpassed the previous best of 19 set by Kevin De Bruyne for Wolfsburg in 2014/15 campaign according to league's official website.
This is despite the fact that the 30-year-old forward, who can also operate as an attacking midfielder, having played the full 90 minutes in just 15 of his 33 appearances in the 2019/20 season.
"This time it did feel special. I've had my ups and downs this season," Muller said. 
"That's why there's a certain joy and satisfaction that perhaps wasn't there in other years because I had to battle my way out of a hole.
" As a team, we played brilliantly but for me 2020 above all went really well. The team shows we’re having loads of fun at the moment playing for FC Bayern," he added.
"We’re playing with extremely good energy levels we've still got a lot to do. We've got the cup final and the Champions League – even if it's in a different set of circumstances."
Muller and fellow Bayern player David Alaba joined their former teammate Franck Ribery as the most decorated players in Bundesliga history with nine titles each.
Switzerland international Alaba also became his nation’s record appearance holder in the league having played his 265th game on the day Bayern wrapped up the title against Werder Bremen on 16 June 2020.
As a result, the 28-year-old centre-back-cum-left-back surpassed former Werder and Bayern star Andreas Herzog at the top of the Austrian standings and is now on 266 appearances.
