bundesliga.com rounds up Matchday 10's action in numbers...
FC Bayern's 3-2 home win against Hertha Berlin was the 39th consecutive Bundesliga game Franck Ribery had featured in without tasting defeat. That takes the French wing wizard out on his own in that category in the Bundesliga, edging past the 38-game unbeaten run of Hamburger SV defender Holger Hieronymus in the early 1908s.
Head coach Pep Guardiola meanwhile pulled level with an FC Bayern club record on the back of the same close-fought victory over the club from the capital. The Catalan tactician is still unbeaten after ten games at the helm in Munich, equalling the previous longest Bundesliga run without defeat for a new coach, set by Branko Zebec back in 1968.
One less salubrious milestone achieved by another member of FC Bayern's all-star ensemble was the yellow card picked up by in the 35th minute of the contest. It was the midfield stalwart's 50th Bundesliga booking, putting him in a select club-within-a-club for the record champions: only Klaus Augenthaler and Lothar Matthäus were booked more often in Bayern colours.
Borussia Mönchengladbach's 4-1 thumping of Eintracht Frankfurt on Sunday made it five wins out of five for them on home turf this season. The last, and only, time they made such a flawless start to a top-flight campaign in their own back yard was under Wolf Werner in 1987/88. Now all they have to do is start reproducing that kind of form on the road, having taken just just one point from a possible 15.
The Hamburger SV renaissance under Bert van Marwijk continues apace. The Red Shorts have put together a four-game unbeaten run since the Dutch head coach came on board and Sunday's 3-0 win at SC Freiburg took their points tally up to eight from those encounters, which happens to be precisely twice as many as they managed in their first six season outings.
Bayer 04 Leverkusen may have struggled somewhat to earn a 2-1 home victory over FC Augsburg, but earn it they did, taking their win count to a remarkable 13 in 15 games, stretching back to last season. For their part, Augsburg are now without a win in five matches, four of which they have lost - and in every one of which, they led 1-0.
wasted no time making an impact off the bench in Saturday's Ruhr district derby, scoring within three minutes of entering the fray to sew up Dortmund's 3-1 win at FC Schalke 04. Kuba's goal was just one of 40 to be scored by substitutes by the end of Matchday 10 - and that's a new Bundesliga best-mark at this juncture of the campaign.
