Lazio vs Milan (1:15 AM)

Thomas Muller and Manuel Neuer are the 10th consecutive heroes for Bayern Munich and the only key players in a decade of Bundesliga dominance.

In Saturday's win over Dortmund, Bayern Munich became the German champions, with veterans Muller and Neuer key in their final victory.

Muller, who has now won the Bundesliga 11 times and was part of the team that won the 2009-10 season, holds the record for most time.

Muller and Neuer have been linked with a move to Bayern Munich in recent seasons, and their place in the club has been in question.

Stats Perform looked at how these two key figures for Die Roten came back in magnificent form.

Thomas Muller Re-invention

Muller was instrumental in Saturday's 3-1 win over Dortmund, with 2010 World Cup gold medalist Robert Lewandowski winning 2-0 just in time.

Such support is expected for him today, but the 32-year-old has redesigned his game to reach this halcyon period in his playing career.

Muller scored 20 goals in the Bundesliga last season for Bayern Munich in the last season (2015-16), scoring just five goals under Ancelotti.

Muller made his debut with Jurgen Klinsmann in 2008 and has built up a lot of debt in the bank, but it is only natural that this sudden decline may surprise many.

Muller's goalscoring record (goals and assists) has dropped below 20 for the first time since 2011-12, with Ancelotti scoring 12 goals throughout the season. Prior to this heyday in the 2016-17 season, Muller's goals were always consistent, but he often won the game to show off his creativity.

In each subsequent season, the Bundesliga has more goals than goals.

He scored 8 goals and created 14 goals in 2017-18. It was a campaign that replaced Jupp Heynckes in early autumn, and Muller said it was to further the fall of Niko Kovac. In 2018-19, Muller's six-goal and nine-goal form fell back below the 20-mark mark of his involvement, and as his 30th birthday approached, there were worries that his best days would be in the past.

How wrong were Muller's criticisms? Muller is now the worst creative threat in German football. Kovac's departure saw Hansi Flick take over at Bayern Munich in November 2019, with Muller finishing with eight goals and 21 assists - the most in the Bundesliga season since 2004-05.

He matches the 2020-21 career - the best 29 goals involved (11 goals, 18 assists) and this time the same (7 goals, 17 assists).

Mulla has made at least 20 goals in nine seasons in the Bundesliga, and Ralf Rangnick is not bad for a player who was close to Bayern Munich during Klinsmann's tenure. Bayern Munich coach Hermann Jalal has told the club to turn down an offer from Rangnic's Hoffenheim and they are forever grateful to him.

Muller, who has averaged 1.08 goals per game under his best flick under the permanent Bayern Munich manager, handled 0.89 during the first year of Julian Nagaelman's reign and slipped below the club's guard rate under Guardiola under 0.93. He averaged 67.27 per 90 minutes in the Bundesliga under Flick, averaging 67.27, down to 64.34 below Nagelsmann.
