bundesliga.com ransacks the data banks to bring you the best stats from last weekend's exciting Bundesliga action.
With their narrow victory over VfL Wolfsburg on Saturday, quadruple winners FC Bayern München inched closer to setting yet another record. The 2-1 win marked the Thomas Müller (pictured)and Co.'s twelfth consecutive home victory - a run only beaten by their vanquished opponents over four years ago. The Wolves meanwhile have been less than predatory against Munich in recent years: the last twenty games have seen them record one draw, and be beaten on 19 occasions.
Bayer 04 Leverkusen celebrated their best ever start to a season by beating Hannover 96 on Saturday - never before have they won six of their opening seven Bundesliga matches. Their opponents Hannover, however, are the only side in the top three divisions in Germany not to have scored an away league goal this season.
After their loss away to Hertha Berlin on Matchday 7, Thomas Tuchel's 1. FSV Mainz 05 have now been defeated in four Bundesliga games in succession. Nicolai Müller (pictured) did score in the German capital to go top of the charts, but the 05ers can't seem to match the international attacker's form at the moment. The last time they lost four games consecutively was in early 2007 under a certain Jürgen Klopp.
Klopp (pictured) is currently experiencing vastly different fortunes with Borussia Dortmund. The 5-0 win at home against SC Freiburg was their highest margin of victory this season and a near-perfect return of 19 points from seven games represents the best start in the five-time Bundesliga champions' history.
Two men vying for the attentions of Germany head coach Joachim Löw found the net this weekend. Leverkusen's Sidney Sam (pictured) scored his fifth goal of the season in his side's 2-0 victory, he's now found the net as many times as in the complete 2012/13 campaign. After seven weeks without a goal, Thomas Müller followed his cup brace in Bayern's win against Hannover in midweek with the only goal of the game against Wolfsburg. It had never taken the 24-year-old so long to record his first Bundesliga strike of the season.
New Hamburger SV coach Bert van Marwijk (pictured) picked up a point at Eintracht Frankfurt thanks to a late Marcell Jansen strike. Quite amazingly, the former Netherlands boss is the sixth coach in a row to achieve that feat for the Red Shorts: His predecessors Thorsten Fink, Michael Oenning, Armin Veh, Bruno Labbadia and Martin Jol have all overseen draws in the opening games to their tenures.
