Hertha Berlin have hit the ground running this season, starting the Bundesliga campaign with seven points from three games - their best ever start. Furthermore, going 19 home games unbeaten under Jos Luhukay, the Olympiastadion is becoming even more of a fortress.

FC Bayern Munich's last Bundesliga defeat came against Bayer 04 Leverkusen last September. Since then, they have gone 28 games unbeaten - a new club record. They are now in pursuit of the league record of 36, set by Hamburger SV in 1982/83.

Anybody wanting to see goals should pay a visit to an 1899 Hoffenheim game. With 16 goals in their three games to date, the back of the net is rippling on average once every 17 minutes, while they have scored more than any other side so far this term.

Stefan Kießling's penalty against Borussia Mönchengladbach on Saturday took him onto 100 goals for the Westphalian club. He has netted a total of 113 Bundesliga goals in 282 appearances, scoring 13 for former club 1. FC Nürnberg.

Mirko Slomka celebrated 200 games in the dugout in Hannover's 2-1 win over Schalke. With three red cards and as many goals, few of his previous matches witnessed so much drama.

Matchday 3 saw a plethora of red cards. Only once before had seven players taken an early bath (2009/10, Matchday 29); this time it was eight. Luiz Gustavo's dismissal was already Wolfsburg's third of the season - a new club record after three games.
