FC Bayern München celebrated their 15th consecutive win in the Bundesliga - equalling their own Bundesliga record from 2005 - and a win next weekend would see them set an all-time Bundesliga record for the longest winning streak. Man of the match inspired his team to a 5-1 win over FC Schalke 04, scoring three of his own to register a hat-trick for the fourth time in his Bundesliga career.
Bayer 04 Leverkusen have lost their last five competitive matches (including one in the UEFA Champions League) and have been defeated in six of their last eight Bundesliga games. Despite registering 19 shots on goal and being awarded seven corners, Leverkusen couldn't find the net in their 1-0 defeat to 1. FSV Mainz 05. Furthermore, Die Werkself amounted 31 crosses against Mainz, the highest number of deliveries in a single match stood at 23 before this weekend.
Borussia Dortmund defender scored for the first time in 36 Bundesliga games - dating back to September 2012 against Leverkusen - in BVB’s 3-0 win over 1. FC Nürnberg. It was a result which also saw keeper Roman Weidenfeller claim his 100th clean sheet in his 311th appearance in the Bundesliga, while BVB boss Jürgen Klopp set a new club record, moving above Ottmar Hitzfeld (111 wins), by clinching his 112th win as head coach.
FC Augsburg are enjoying a real purple patch at the moment, having only lost one of their last eleven games whilst amassing 22 points. Their 1-1 draw with Hannover was only the third time in Augsburg’s Bundesliga history that they managed to nick a point after going into the break behind.
