Xabi Alonso’s side have won 31 points out of a possible 33 this campaign, equaling the record set by Pep Guardiola’s FCB in the 2015-16 season.
Alex Grimaldo, Odilon Kossounou, Jonathan Tah and Nathan Tella scored in a triumphant win over Union Berlin that took their team back to the top of the league.
“The emotions are fantastic at the moment,” said former Spain and Liverpool player Alonso.
“We played with great focus and concentration. However, there are still many games and things can change quickly in our game and suddenly all expectations disappear.
Xabi’s club have triumphed in 16 of 17 matches across all tournaments this campaign, which now includes 12 straight wins.
