- Both good and bad records emerged during the Hinrunde.
- Bayern, Leipzig & Dortmund boast impressive runs.
- Leverkusen missed four spot-kicks from four.
Records come in both positive and negative forms, and every Bundesliga club has set some form of new record so far this season. With the clubs set to return to action next week, bundesliga.com takes a look at the weirdest, most wonderful and downright obscure stats from the first half of the campaign.
Watch: the Bundesliga is back with a vengeance on Friday 20 January.
RB Leipzig: The easterners managed 11 wins and three draws in their first 16 games of top-flight action. That is a record which makes them the most successful promoted side in Bundesliga history over that many matches, beating the title-winning 1. FC Kaiserslautern team from 1997/98. They also became the first promoted side in the Bundesliga's history to remain undefeated in their opening 13 games.
Watch: Leipzig topped the Bundesliga for the first time in their history back in November.
Eintracht Frankfurt: Niko Kovac’s side have only conceded 12 goals in their 16 games so far, which is the fewest they have ever let in at this stage of a top-flight campaign.
TSG 1899 Hoffenheim: Julian Nagelsmann’s side are still unbeaten after 16 matches this season – a feat that only three teams have previous achieved: Bayern three times, Hamburger SV and Bayer 04 Leverkusen. They are the only club alongside Real Madrid yet to taste defeat this season in Europe’s top five leagues.
Borussia Dortmund: Die Schwarz-Gelben have displayed imperious home form in the 2016/17 season and have not lost in 29 games in front of their own fans, which is a current club record. BVB set the new record of 25 unbeaten home games with a 1-1 draw against Hertha on Matchday 7.
Bayer 04 Leverkusen: Die Werkself took the lead for the 750th time in the Bundesliga during their 3-1 win over Hamburg on Matchday 2. Roger Schmidt’s side have also been awarded four penalties this campaign, but have failed to convert any.
1. FSV Mainz 05: Mainz contested the group stage of a European competition for the first time this season, but failed to progress in the UEFA Europa League despite only losing at RSC Anderlecht. Die Nullfünfer have also scored eight headed goals this term.
FC Augsburg: Manuel Baum became the first Fuggerstädter coach in the club’s history to win his first Bundesliga game in charge on Matchday 15. Augsburg are also the only side yet to be awarded a penalty this season.
Watch: Augsburg were one of three sides to appoint a new coach in December 2016.
VfL Wolfsburg: Mario Gomez’s goal in the Wolves' 3-1 defeat at Darmstadton Matchday 8 was the club’s 1000th in the Bundesliga. Wolfsburg have also given away a league-high three penalties this campaign (Hamburg also three).
Borussia Mönchengladbach: Andre Hahn’s opening goal in the 2-1 win over Leverkusen on Matchday 1 was Gladbach’s 2,800th in the Bundesliga, but die Fohlenelf are still the only side this season without a goal from a substitute.
Watch: Ousmane Manneh, a former refugee, made history when he scored Bremen's winner against Leverkusen.
Hamburger SV: Die Rothosen saw a red card in three consecutive games between Matchday 7 and 9 for the first time in their long Bundesliga history. HSV also failed to score in seven matches in a row from Matchdays 3 to 9 to set an unwanted club record.
FC Ingolstadt 04: Die Schanzer struck the woodwork three times in a game for the first time in their 1-1 draw with Wolfsburg on Matchday 12. Ingolstadt have also conceded more goals from outside the box than any other side this season (7, the same as Bremen).
SV Darmstadt 98: Die Lilien became the first side since Hannover 96 in 2013/14 to fail to win a point from their opening eight away games of a campaign. Eight consecutive losses on the road is also a new negative club record.
