Matchday 6 Statistical review

Cologne - There appears to be no stopping Borussia Mönchengladbach at present as they extended their unbeaten start to the season on Saturday, a day on which Xabi Alonso also wrote Bundesliga history.

With so many facts and figures available, allow bundesliga.com to round up the most pertinent statistics from another rip-roaring weekend of German top-flight action.

2 - After so many draws on the first five matchdays, the sixth round of action was a little more clearcut with only two ties. There were at least three on each of the previous matchdays.

0 - The only team not to pick up a single point during the englische Woche were SV Werder Bremen.

38 - Like 38 years ago, Werder have still not won after six rounds of matches. Like then, they have three draws and three defeats.

16 - The 0-0 draw for Bayer 04 Leverkusen at SC Freiburg ended a run of 16 matches in which die Werkself had scored at least one goal.

7 - Mainz are now unbeaten in seven matches, including the last game of 2013/14 (three wins, four draws). The last time they had such a lengthy unbeaten streak was four years ago.

6 - Hoffenheim came through their first six games of the season unbeaten for the first time in their history.

3 - Never before in the history of the Bundesliga had Gladbach conceded fewer goals after six games than they have this season (three, as was the case three years ago).

800 - Borussia Dortmund's 800th Bundesliga away game ended in their 350th defeat.

85 - Schalke picked up their 30th win in 85 games against Borussia Dortmund, levelling the overall head-to-head record between the two Ruhr rivals (30 wins each, 25 draws)

44 - There were 44 fouls in the game between Freiburg and Leverkusen - a new record for the season.

7 - Leverkusen added their sixth and seventh shots against the woodwork this season, with Karim Bellarabi and Heung-Min Son the unfortunate ones.
