bundesliga.com has rounded the most important statistics to emerge from Matchday 15...
FC Bayern München's 7-0 win in SV Werder Bremen made it 26 away matches without defeat, equalling their own Bundesliga record, set between 1985-87. The return of Franck Ribery meant the result was perhaps on the cards - in his twelfth game against Bremen he scored his ninth and tenth goals, and with two assists it was the fifth time in his Bundesliga career he'd been directly involved in four goals. The 7-0 defeat was Bremen's highest home defeat in their history - beating the 7-1 loss to Borussia Mönchengladbach in March 1987.
In the same way that Bremen have become Ribery's favourite opponent, enjoys playing Borussia Dortmund just as much. In his fourth game against die Schwarz-Gelben, the South Korean hit his fifth goal. Dortmund's 1-0 home defeat to Bayer 04 Leverkusen marked the first time since early 2007 that die Schwarz-Gelben had gone two Bundesliga games without scoring. Thomas Doll was then the coach.
's fantastic goal to help Borussia Mönchengladbach to a 2-1 win over FC Schalke 04 set a new personal and club record. The goal was his eighth of the season - a new personal best, and incidentally the first with his left foot. Gladbach have now won the last six games in succession - the last time that happened was over 36 years ago when Jupp Heynckes was the coach. They've also won all eight games at the Borussia Park this term.
1. FC Nürnberg's 1-1 draw with 1. FSV Mainz 05 on Friday night's curtain-raiser meant Der Club became the first side in Bundesliga history to have gone the first 15 games of a season without picking up thre points. The men from Franconia have nine draws and six defeats to their name in 2013/14.
VfB Stuttgart not only picked up their first win in three games, but contrived to do it with their youngest starting eleven since October 1987. Antonio Rüdiger (aged 20), 19-year-old Rani Khedira, 20-year-old and 17-year-old Timo Werner combined for a 4-2 win over Hannover 96. The veteran 23-year-old Alexandru Maxim was an unused substitute.
