bundesliga.com rounds up the top statistics of yet another thrilling weekend of German top flight action.
A massive 148 goals were scored on the first five weekends of action by last season's top goalscorer (r.) and his fellow Bundesliga players, the highest tally in ten years. And quite remarkably, not one of the 45 encounters played so far has ended goalless, a feat that has only ever happened once before - in the league's debut campaign in 1963.
isn't just the Bundesliga's joint-top goalscorer on five goals following his brace against Hamburger SV, but Dortmund's newly-signed Gabon forward also laid down a season record 51 sprints in the 6-2 victory, his quickest at 35.1 km per hour.
Hertha Berlin suffered their first home defeat under head coach Jos Luhukay on Matchday 5. VfB Stuttgart were their conquerors, bringing to ane end Hertha's impressive run of 19 matches unbeaten at fortress Olympiastadion.
FC Bayern München extended their unbeaten run to Bundesliga 30 matches by getting the better of Hannover on Saturday. Equally impressive, the defending quadruple champions have found the net in each of their last 42 top flight encounters.
There was again little to smile about for , who was sent off in VfL Wolfsburg's defeat at Bayer 04 Leverkusen, having only just returned from a suspension on Matchday 4. The 26-year-old Brazil midfielder is only the seventh player in Bundesliga history to be sent off in two consecutive appearances.
Not only have they managed to win their opening five games for the first time, the current Dortmund side also levelled the club record of 13 consecutive matches in which they scored the opening goal, leaving them only two short of Saturday's rivals Hamburg's all-time record.
