Leipzig (dpa) – Thomas Müller is used to winning at FC Bayern. In the top game of the Bundesliga, from 6:30 p.m. (Sky), the Munich international may be able to celebrate a special milestone in his career, the 322nd victory in Germany’s top division.
The original Bavarian recently celebrated victory number 321 in a 7-0 win against VfL Bochum. Müller, who was missing from Bayern’s cup win in Münster after a strain during the week, is now expected to be part of the German record champions’ squad again in Leipzig. And the 34-year-old attacker could draw level with teammate and record holder Manuel Neuer in his 448th Bundesliga appearance.
The Bayern goalkeeper, who is not yet able to play again after breaking his leg, has 322 wins in 478 Bundesliga games for Bayern and Schalke. Since Neuer won’t be back in the Bayern goal until October at the earliest, Müller could replace him as the sole record holder by then.
Müller recently reached a milestone in the Champions League. In the 4-3 win against Manchester, he became the first German player to reach the mark of 100 wins in Europe’s premier class. Before Müller, only Portugal star Cristiano Ronaldo (115 wins) and Real Madrid goalkeeper legend Iker Casillas (101) broke the hundred mark.
