Manchester City reach new UCL milestone after Bayern win

When Manchester City defeated Bayern Munich 3-0 in the first leg of their UEFA Champions League quarterfinal match, they set a new record for the most straight home matches in Europe’s premier competition without suffering a defeat, surpassing every other Premier League team.

Manchester City’s victory over Bayern Munich extended their unbeaten streak at the Etihad in the UEFA Champions League to 25, more than any other English team in the competition’s history.

The Cityzens’ winning streak began with a loss to Lyon on the first day of the 2018/19 UEFA Champions League season and has included 23 wins and two ties in 25 games.

The club as a whole celebrating a European milestone following an outstanding performance against Bayern Munich was fitting on a night of individual excellence and records for Manchester City.

The record demonstrates how dominant Manchester City has been in the Champions League in recent years, despite failing to win the championship.

They are on the verge of qualifying for their third consecutive semifinal and will be hoping that the record will motivate them to eventually win the largest trophy missing from their cabinet.

Erling Haaland‘s goal after 77 minutes was his 11th in the 2022/23 UEFA Champions League campaign, with only van Nistelrooy scoring more UCL goals for an English club in a single season in the 2002/23 season for Manchester United.

His goal was also his 45th in all competitions, making him the Premier League player with the most goals in all competitions in a single season, surpassing van Nistelrooy.
