Top speed crucial in attack and defence. On Matchday 1, Borussia Dortmund's Erling Haaland accelerated to over 35 km/h (21.7 mph) in the 3-0 win over Borussia Mönchengladbach. That's almost 10 meters (32.8 feet) in a second, making him the fastest player on the opening day. Among defenders, Bayern Munich's Alphonso Davies stood out as the fastest Bundesliga player since data collection began last season. The 2019/20 Rookie of the Season was one of only three players to break the 36 km/h (22.4 mph) barrier. Bayer Leverkusen pair Moussa Diaby and Leon Bailey complete the top three. The Bundesliga is raving about speed - and thanks to AWS, high speeds will now be perfectly documented for you.
