In November 2019, Bayern Munich announced Hans-Dieter Flick as the technical director of the Bavarian team, with the aim of straightening the way after a rather bad start to the season under Niko Kovak.
Flick took the team in seventh position in the Bundesliga and little by little he began to show that he was capable of managing a squad full of stars, which was seeking in any way to continue with the hegemony in German football.
True to his discipline and style of play, Flick led the Bavarian team to the first major title of the season: the Bundesliga. After a difficult season, with a long period of inactivity due to the covid-19 pandemic, the Bavarian team managed to overcome adversity and with an exceptional performance they were crowned German soccer champion.
In the league, the Munich squad registered 100 goals in the 34 games they played, received only 32 goals, and with an abysmal difference in points with the second in the table, they raised the local trophy again. Robert Lewandowski was the great scorer of the tournament with 34 goals, Muller the top assistant with 21 goals, and Manuel Neuer the best goalkeeper with 15 clean sheets.
After winning the Bundesliga title, those led by Flick faced Bayer Leverkusen in the final of the German Cup, and with a 4-2 favor, they took the second title of the season. Robert Lewandowski, once again, was the top scorer of the tournament with 6 goals scored.
The great work of Flick during the season, put Bayern Munich as one of the firm candidates to stay with the Champions League and they did it. The German machine defeated PSG in the grand final of the Cup, and entered history as the only European team to win a continental tournament by winning all its matches. Bayern won eleven wins in eleven games, registering an average of 3.9 goals per game.
Likewise, Robert Lewandowski won the tournament’s top scorer award after scoring 15 goals, and set a record for being the first player in history to win the treble and score the top scorer in all three competitions: Bundesliga, German Cup and Champions League .
With the three titles achieved, Bayern Munich joins Barcelona, like the two teams in Europe that have achieved the treble in two different seasons (2012-13 and 2019-20). And in addition, it was consolidated as the best team of the moment, since the records, the trophies and the numbers, certify the magnificent season of the German team.
