Anyone want to bet against the treble? Bayern Munich are absolutely rampant and sent a warning sign to the rest of Europe with a fantastic 4-0 Champions League semi-final win over Barcelona on Tuesday.

Their relentlessly brilliant season has seen them vanquish Dortmund in the DFB-Pokal and progress to the final and they have a chance of finally achieving a dream that has eluded them for so long.

Unsurprisingly, during the course of the campaign, the Bavarians have produced some extraordinary feats. Here are some of the incredible numbers behind their run.

0 – The number of times Barca were beaten by four goals since the arrival of Pep Guardiola at Camp Nou back in 2008, prior to Tuesday’s clash at the Allianz Arena.

5 – The number of players in the Bayern squad to have scored 10 goals or more in all competitions, with Mario Mandzukic leading the charts on 21.

6 – Jupp Heynckes’ side wrapped up the Bundesliga title with six games to spare – the fastest ever triumph in the division.
