As you may have seen, Bayern Munich completed the sextuple last night, winning the club World Cup, beating Mexican side Tigres 1-0. Benjamin Pavard scored the only goal of the game, which maybe you would have expected it to be club talisman Robert Lewandowski.

Maybe we should be focusing on an ex Bayern right back, in Alvaro Odriozola. That game means that Odriozola may be the first player in history to be a champion in 8 separate competitions at once.

Currently he is a winner in both the Liga Santander and UEFA Super Cup at Real Madrid, and then on his loan move to Bayern he won the Champions League, Bundesliga, German cup and both the super cup and the club World Cup.

But, Bayern Munich clearly aren’t missing the spaniard, with Hansi Flick having won more trophies at Bayern than he has lost games since taking over from Niko Kovac, and this is only his second job as a head coach.

This record breaking Bayern season has also not been without injuries, and has also got the best out of the wealth of attacking talent, with Robert Lewandowski having possibly the best season of his career, as well as Serge Gnabry and Leroy Sane both offering a threat down the wings. Not only that, but the last two players to expect to revitalise their career are Thomas Muller and Manuel Neuer, who have both had great seasons.

Maybe Bayern will add to there wealth of trophies this season, and the record breaking side look unbeatable at the moment. Will they win the triple again this season?
