Cologne - Under the stewardship of new Danish coach Kasper Hjulmand, 1. FSV Mainz 05 started the 2014/15 Hinrunde in fine fashion, becoming one of only four teams unbeaten after eight games. Since then, however, it has been a struggle for die Nullfünfers, who are without a win since Matchday 8.
bundesliga.com has assessed the performance of all 18 clubs in various areas of play over the course of the Hinrunde and ranked them in positions 1-18 accordingly. The greater the surface area on the spidergram below, the better that club has statistically performed overall in 2014/15.
The numbers below bear witness to the toils of last season's surprise package in the first half of this campaign, and despite Shinji Okazaki's eight strikes, it has been a tough going in front of goal. Can Hjulmand's troops reverse their fortunes in 2015? Tell us your thoughts by interacting with Bundesliga on Twitter.
