0

Borussia Dortmund did not manage a single shot before half-time against FC Schalke 04, the first time this has happened since statistics were first collated in 1992.

Watch: Christian Pulisic on Dortmund's four-match winless in the Bundesliga:

1

TSG 1899 Hoffenheim scored through a defender for the first time this season. Niklas Süle's headed winner against Hertha Berlin was his first Bundesliga goal for nearly two years.

2

SC Freiburg's Maximilian Philipp scored in two consecutive Bundesliga games for the first time in his career in the 3-1 win against SV Werder Bremen. The 22-year-old is the top-scoring German in the division, with five.

3

Anthony Modeste scored his first Bundesliga hat-trick in steering 1. FC Köln past Hamburger SV. It was the Billy Goats’ first hat-trick since May 1997, when Toni Polster bagged three in a 4-0 win… also over Hamburg.

4

Yunus Malli scored his fourth penalty for 1. FSV Mainz 05 in the 2-0 win against FC Ingolstadt 04. The Turkey midfielder also converted in the opening round of the DFB Cup, helping oust SpVgg Unterhaching on penalties.

5

Hoffenheim celebrated their fifth consecutive victory, equalling their record from the 2008/09 season - their maiden Bundesliga campaign – under Ralf Rangnick.

7

Schalke are now unbeaten in seven games in all competitions, with five wins and two draws, after drawing 0-0 with Dortmund.

7

Marcel Sabitzer's match-winning brace against SV Darmstadt 98 means RB Leipzig have already scored seven goals through substitutes this season.

Watch: Marcel Sabitzer on being back among the goals for Leipzig:

12

Borussia Mönchengladbach have not lost any of the last 12 home games. It has been more than four-and-a-half years since they last managed such a feat.

13

FC Bayern München's Robert Lewandowski scored for the first time in approaching 500 Bundesliga minutes, bringing his tally to 13 goals in 11 appearances against FC Augsburg. The Pole netted twice as Bayern won 3-1.

Bayern are unbeaten in their last 19 Bundesliga matches, stretching back eight months.

Watch: Robert Lewandowski reflects on his brace against Augsburg:

19

Hoffenheim already have 19 points on the board after nine match days. Last season they took 24 games to get to the same number.

21

Leipzig are the best promoted team in 19 years, with 21 points after nine games. In the 1997/98 season, 1. FC Kaiserslautern matched that tally, before going on to become the first promoted team to win the Bundesliga title at the end of the campaign.

23

Suat Serdar's tackle count for Mainz against Ingolstadt has only been bettered in a single match by Augsburg's Caiuby this season (25).

34

Lewandowski had never scored on Matchday 9. His brace against Augsburg means he has now scored at least once on every single Bundesliga match day.

Freiburg's Nils Petersen made it a century of appearances in the Bundesliga when he came off the bench against former club SV Werder Bremen.
