bundesliga.com summarises the five biggest stories to arise from the weekend's action...
Jerome Boateng may have said they weren't focussing on it, but the elation at the final whistle told a different story. After equalling Hamburger SV's 36-game unbeaten Bundesliga run last week against Hoffenheim, FC Bayern München went a step better this week by beating FC Augsburg to set a new record of their own. The 3-0 win for Pep Guardiola's men was set up by Boateng's early goal, before Franck Ribery scored his first direct free-kick since 2009 to make it 2-0, and Thomas Müller notched his fifth of the season late on.
Borussia Dortmund's 2-1 defeat to VfL Wolfsburg only increased the smiles in the Allianz Arena. They are now four points behind the Reds at the top of the league, and Matchday 13's game takes on a whole new spin for die Schwarz-Gelben. After Marco Reus' free kick, all seemed pleasant in Jürgen Klopp's garden, but a second-half fightback ensured the points remained in Wolfsburg. Dieter Hecking's men have now won four on the trot and sit in fifth - seven points behind BVB.
Heung Min Son hadn't scored since Matchday 1. For eleven successive games he had toiled to repay the trust placed in him by Bayer 04 Leverkusen coach Sami Hyypiä. Then, it all clicked. On Matchday 12, the South Korean star showed his undoubted abilities by hitting a spellbinding hat-trick against former club Hamburger SV, in a veritable feast of goals in the BayArena. Son's new club ran out 5-3 winners, but a plus for Hamburg was Pierre-Michel Lasogga's brace - taking him to eight for the season.
Another Bundesliga weekend, another feast of goals. Hertha Berlin's 3-2 win at 1899 Hoffenheim was ignited by Adrian Ramos, the visitors' Colombian striker, whose brace led the visitors to their first away win of the season. The first of his two came from the penalty spot, his first strike from twelve yards in the Bundesliga, and Hertha's 100th. His double also took him to seven goals for the season, already one more than he recorded in the whole campaign in 2011/12 when Hertha were relegated.
The Bundesliga's stars from Asia are as well-known as they are plentiful and well-represented after Son's superb hat-trick. Another continent produced many a goalscorer this weekend, though, as South America's finest exports got in on the action. As well as a brace for the Colombian Ramos, Venezuelan Juan Arango hit a beauty for Borussia Mönchengladbach and FC Schalke 04's Peruvian winger Jefferson Farfan crowned his comeback from injury with a goal. Felicidades, fellas.
