bundesliga.com rounds up the standout figures to emerge from the weekend's goal-stuffed fixtures...
28 goals flew in over the course of the weekend, taking the 2013/14 campaign’s total goals tally to 176. For the first time in the Bundesliga’s history, not one of the top flight’s first six matchday meetings (54 games) has ended 0-0.
Cruising past FC Schalke 04, FC Bayern München took their unbeaten league run to 31 matches and are now hot on the heels of the Bundesliga’s all-time record of 36 matches without loss, set by Hamburger SV back in January 1983.
1. FC Nürnberg worked their socks off to hold league leaders Borussia Dortmund to a 1-1 draw on Saturday afternoon - literally. Only VfB Stuttgart (121.1 kilometres) covered more ground than the Franconian outfit (120.7 km), for whom midfielder Niklas Stark won 90.9 per cent of his attempted challenges - a number only bettered by VfL Wolfsburg's Naldo (94.1 per cent).
For the 30th game in a row in which found the back of the net, FC Bayern München picked up all three points against FC Schalke 04 on Saturday. The 30-year-old wing wizard is now just four games away from overhauling Franz Beckenbauer’s legendary 33-match streak of scoring in Bayern victories.
Sunday afternoon’s 1-1 draw at home to Hertha Berlin leaves SC Freiburg without a league win this season. Christian Streich’s side have now registered just three points in six outings; their worst-ever return after six matchdays in their Bundesliga history.
Aged 17 years, six months and 16 days, Stuttgart’s Timo Werner became the Bundesliga’s third-youngest scorer of all time with the equalising goal against Eintracht Frankfurt on Sunday. Only top-flight contemporaries Julian Draxler (17 years, six months and 12 days) and Nuri Sahin (17 years, two months and 21 days) can claim to have opened their Bundesliga accounts at an earlier age.
