As a warm-up for the next round of Bundesliga action, here's a look at some of the standout inter-matchday statistics...
FC Bayern München's 3-0 win at arch-rivals Borussia Dortmund was the 50th successive league game in which they've hit the net – another all-time Bundesliga milestone. The next one could well be on the way this Saturday: If Bayern beat cellar-dwellers Eintracht Braunschweig at home, they will have amassed 87 points in the calendar year 2013, equalling their own best-mark from 2005.
Barring a major upset at the Allianz Arena, Pep Guardiola (pictured) will also pull level with the record for the longest unbeaten run for a new coach: Karlheinz Feldkamp went 14 games without tasting defeat after taking over the 1. FC Kaiserslautern hotseat back in 1978/79. FC Bayern's 35-point tally is also a record for the opening .
Halil Altintop's (pictured) goal for FC Augsburg in the 2-0 home win against 1899 Hoffenheim was his 51st in the Bundesliga, taking him one clear of Yildiray Bastürk as the top flight's all-time highest scoring Turkish player. At Hertha Berlin this weekend, Gelsenkirchen-born Altintop is also set to become the first Turkey international to rack up 250 Bundesliga appearances.
Maximilian Arnold (pictured) is fairly setting the heather on fire at VfL Wolfsburg. The 19-year-old attacking midfielder has scored seven goals in his 15 Bundesliga appearances to date. When his stints off the bench are subtracted from the equation, it makes for even more impressive reading - seven goals in his last ten starting appearances.
Someone else in fine scoring form at the moment is Shinji Okazaki (pictured). The Japan international's two-goal contribution to 1. FSV Mainz 05's 3-2 victory at Werder Bremen was his second brace in four matchdays, the other coming against Braunschweig. In 63 appearances for VfB Stuttgart, Okazaki never once scored two goals in a game.
Borussia Mönchengladbach's 2-0 victory at Stuttgart made it four wins on the trot for the Foals. If they repeat the trick against SC Freiburg, it will be their first five-game winning streak under head coach Lucien Favre (pictured) - their first, indeed, since the autumn of 1995, when Bernd Krauss was at the helm.
Gladbach are also on a six-game roll at home, one shy of a club record for a season start. To achieve it, however, they will have to beat the team who, perhaps surprisingly, have currently gone the longest without conceding a goal on the road. SC Freiburg have kept a clean sheet in their last three away games and are on course for a club record of their own should they manage another at the Borussia Park on Sunday.
