bundesliga.com has the top stats from the weekend...
Setting a new all-time Bundesliga record of 16 wins in a row was only the half of it for Bayern as they trounced VfL Wolfsburg 6-1 on Saturday. As well as moving a significant step closer to their own long-standing season goals best-mark, Pep Guardiola's irrepressible charges also pulled level with Bayer Leverkusen's standard-setting run of 24 games unbeaten from the start of the season in 2009/10. And they have the opportunity to break that one against Bayer themselves in Munich this weekend...
Schalke's 4-0 home win against Hoffenheim was their biggest in the league since Jens Keller took over as head coach in December 2012. Klaas-Jan Huntelaar chipped in with his third Bundesliga hat-trick, the second of those taking him up to 53 in total, past Olaf Thon to become Schalke's fourth-highest scorer in the top flight. The Royal Blues, incidentally, were the only home side to emerge victorious on Matchday 24, an unprecedented low this season.
Borussia Mönchengladbach's ongoing form slump continued as they went down 2-1 at home to FC Augsburg, extending their winless run to nine matches. That's new territory for head coach Lucien Favre in the Bundesliga, whether with Gladbach or in his previous tenure at Hertha Berlin. The Foals have already lost as many games in 2014 - four out of seven - as they did in the entire first season-half. They have also been unable to capitalise on a 1-0 lead in any of their last four outings.
Bernd Leno saved his fifth penalty of the campaign in Bayer Leverkusen's 1-1 draw at Hannover 96 on Saturday to move within one of Thomas Zander's all-time record for TSV 1860 Munich from 1979/80. The 22-year-old Bayer custodian has already set a new top-flight best-mark by saving four in a row and his third-minute effort against Szabolcs Huszti - who beat him twice from the spot last season - was also the first penalty Hannover had missed in 19 attempts, a run stretching back to August 2009.
While it did at least put an end to their unprecedented eight-game losing streak, VfB Stuttgart's 2-2 home draw with Eintracht Braunschweig was also the twelfth match running in which they have conceded two goals or more. Stuttgart last actually kept a clean sheet in their previous meeting with Braunschweig back on 29 September. It was also unlucky eight for Thomas Schneider in his final game as head coach: in the eighth game of 2014, VfB leaked their eighth goal after the 80-minute mark.
