bundesliga.com didn't have to delve very deep to bring you the stats which had Bundesliga fans' tongues wagging the world over...
FC Bayern München extended their unbeaten record. The Bavarians' 3-0 win over Borussia Dortmund was their 38th successive game unbeaten, and the 50th game in a row in which they've found the net. Those numbers have amounted to 35 points from 13 games this season - no side in history has ever started so well. Oh, and only once have they won by a higher margin in Dortmund - 5-1 in 2009.
Before Matchday 13, Mario Götze's (pictured) last goal at the Signal Iduna Park came in a 3-0 UEFA Champions League win over FC Shakhtar Donetsk in March of this year. His most recent came against Dortmund for Bayern, ten minutes and six touches after his 56th minute introduction. Of his two goals and two assists this season all have come from the bench. Thomas Müller, who assisted Götze's first and scored Bayern's last, made it six goals this season. They've all come in the last seven games. Form.
Are 1. FC Nürnberg the unluckiest team in the Bundesliga? Makoto Hasebe's (pictured) shot which struck the post after 44 minutes in the 1-1 draw with VfL Wolfsburg was the eleventh time Der Club have struck the woodwork this season - a league high. They are however, only the fourth team in Bundesliga history to have gone the first 13 games of a season without a win. The last time this happened was MSV Duisburg 19 years ago. Duisburg finished ninth, and hope springs eternal - provided they can avoid the aluminium.
For the second time this season, FC Schalke 04 threw away a two goal lead. That was Matchday 7 against 1899 Hoffenheim. This week it happened again as the Royal-Blues clawed back a 3-3 draw with Eintracht Frankfurt. Schalke's first goal came from an unlikely source, Frankfurt's Johannes Flum - who scored his club's 52nd Bundesliga own goal, the most ever. On a further sour note for the Eagles, who themselves let a 3-2 lead slip, this is the first time in their history that they've been unable to pick up three points at home in their first six games.
Stefan Kießling (pictured), the Bundesliga's perennial goalscorer, struck another wish of his bucket list. After seven games in the capital, he finally hit the net in Hertha Berlin's Olympiastadion. His strike, with his only shot, allowed Leverkusen to celebrate ten wins from their first 13 games. The last time that happened was in 2001/02, when they finished second. After Dortmund's loss to Bayern, die Werkself currently sit in second place.
Travel sickness isn't a pleasant affliction. Hannover fans are fine, they still travel in their numbers to away games. It's the players who struggle. After a 3-1 loss to Hamburger SV (incidentally, their first home win under Bert van Marwijk), die Roten are now the only side in the Bundesliga not to have picked a point up away from home. It's seven away defeats in succession for Mirko Slomka's men, and they need to find a remedy.
To end where we started, with FC Bayern and their coach Pep Guardiola (pictured). The Catalan has now, incredibly, been victorious against 93 different opponents as a first team coach with the Bavarians and former club Barcelona FC. Although Leverkusen thwarted him this season, his Barcelona side beat them 7-1 on aggregate in March 2012 in the UEFA Champions League. The two sides he's never come out on top against? Chelsea FC and SC Freiburg. El mister.
