Watch: the Bundesliga is back with a vengeance on Friday 20 January.

FC Bayern München: On Matchday 14, the record champions achieved their 15th consecutive home win over VfL Wolfsburg. No other Bundesliga match-up has ever seen such a run.

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.

Hertha Berlin: In their 3-3 draw at Eintracht Frankfurt on Matchday 5, the capital club took the lead for the 500th time in the Bundesliga.

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.

1. FC Köln: Anthony Modeste’s strike to put the Billy Goats 2-1 up in their 3-1 victory at FC Schalke 04 on Matchday 4 was the club’s 1,000th away Bundesliga goal.

SC Freiburg: Nils Petersen’s penalty to secure the 1-0 win over SV Darmstadt 98 on Matchday 14 was the Black Forest outfit’s 700th top-flight goal.

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 Schalke 04: Eric Maxim Choupo-Moting’s penalty in the 4-0 win over Borussia Mönchengladbach on Matchday 6 was the 200th spot-kick scored by the Royal Blues in the Bundesliga.

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.

Werder Bremen: Die Grün-Weißen’s 2-1 victory over Bayer on Matchday 7 made them just the second side (after Bayern) to reach 750 top-flight wins (they are now on 752).

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.
