bundesliga.com takes a look at some of the most interesting facts and figures ahead of Matchday 23 in Germany's top flight...
Four penalties failed to find the back of the net last weekend, taking the running total for the season up to 13. No single Bundesliga matchday has ever witnessed more than four missed spot-kicks. One game alone accounted for three of the above - Nürnberg's 2-1 win against Eintracht Braunschweig. FCN keeper Raphael Schäfer saved both the visitors' attempts from the spot while his opposite number Martin Petkovic also kept out Hiroshi Kiyotake's 68th-minute effort.
Bayer 04 Leverkusen's Bernd Leno saved his fourth penalty of the season in the 3-1 loss to VfL Wolfsburg and, regardless of being beaten on the rebound by Ricardo Rodriguez, thus becomes the first keeper to block four spot-kicks in a season since Jörg Butt and Daniel Hoffmann back in 1999/2000.
FC Bayern's 4-0 win at Hannover 96 stretched their current victory march to 14 games straight. Only they themselves have ever topped that, winning 15 in a row back in 2005. Bastian Schweinsteiger, incidentally, celebrated his 200th top-flight win against the Reds, in what was his 311th appearance
Borussia Mönchengladbach have now gone , the longest stretch yet under Lucien Favre. Wolfsburg, meanwhile, are on a after dispatching Leverkusen, and 12 victories all-told after Matchday 22 is also a Bundesliga best-mark for the Wolves.
Hertha Berlin's second goal in the 2-1 win at VfB Stuttgart was their 1,500th in the Bundesliga – and the 900th Stuttgart have conceded at home. Levan Kobiashvili's fifth-minute opener for Hertha in that match made him the Berlin club's oldest-ever Bundesliga scorer at 36, supplanting current sporting director Michael Preetz.
Werder Bremen and Hamburger SV are gearing up for their 100th Bundesliga head-to-head this weekend. No other top-flight duel has been played out so often. Hamburg ended a seven-match losing streak with a 3-0 win in new head coach Mirko Slomka's first game in charge against Borussia Dortmund last time out, while Bremen were held to a 0-0 draw by Eintracht Frankfurt.
