The 2016/17 season is off to a flying start, with two Bundesliga new boys in particular showing a sensational nose for goal. Here’s the Matchday 1 Stat-attack.
Joel Pohjanpalo (Bayer 04 Leverkusen) and Bobby Wood (Hamburger SV) both made their first-ever shot on goal in the Bundesliga count as they got off the mark in the top-flight at the first time of asking. VfL Wolfsburg’s Daniel Didavi also scored with his first shot for his new club.
Eintracht Frankfurt have won four of their five Bundesliga home games under Niko Kovac.
FC Bayern München’s 6-0 win over SV Werder Bremen equalled the record for the highest-scoring encounter on the opening day. In 1974, Kickers Offenbach also romped to a 6-0 victory…over Bayern!
