bundesliga.com takes a look at some of the most interesting statistical bits and bobs ahead of Matchday 33...
Hamburger SV will play their 865th home game in the Bundesliga on Saturday and if the Bundesliga's only ever-present club lose to FC Bayern München, it might also be their last for the time being. On 84 points going into the penultimate matchday, off-the-boil Bayern are meanwhile still on course for the second-highest final tally ever in the Bundesliga - after last season.
Hamburg keeper Rene Adler has conceded 22 goals in the course of losing his last four competitive outings against FC Bayern. At any rate, the three that went past him on the Red Shorts' Matchday 16 trip to Munich were a drop in the ocean set against last season's trip to the Allianz Arena, which ended in a catastrophic 9-2 defeat. Overall, though, HSV do have the worst defence in the league at the moment with 68 goals leaked.
Standing or sitting somewhere inside the Imtech Arena will be the five millionth spectator to pass through the turnstiles for this particular encounter. 4,956, 679 fans all-told have officially attended the 97 previous Bundesliga games between Hamburg and FC Bayern down the years. That's a sum total topped only by the all-time figure for Bayern's meetings with southern rivals VfB Stuttgart.
FC Schalke 04's bid to retain third place takes them to SC Freiburg, who are on a four-game winning streak at home. All-told, Freiburg are level with Dortmund as the Bundesliga's form side over the last eight matches, from which they have taken 17 points. Julian Draxler is on the verge of becoming the youngest player ever to make 100 Bundesliga appearances, while prolific (58 goals) Dutch frontman Klaas-Jan Huntelaar is also on the 99-mark for the Royal Blues.
Bayer Leverkusen will have to do without the services of the injured Stefan Kießling at Eintracht Frankfurt, bringing to an end the longest current uninterrupted playing sequence in the Bundesliga. Last season's league top scorer, who damaged a thigh muscle in the thrilling 2-2 draw with Dortmund, has had a run-out in every top-flight matchday since 11 December 2010, which adds up to 118 consecutive games.
Shinji Okazaki will be looking to further stretch his new record season goals total for a player from Japan in the Bundesliga. The Mainz striker is on 14 now - ten of which have been scored away from home. And if you want a handy overview of how Germany's Japanese contingent has fare in the scoring stakes down the years, look no further than this handy graphic!
