100-day review: FC Ingolstadt 04

With a third of the 2015/16 season done and dusted, is checking in with all 18 clubs to see where they are at after 12 matches.

The story so far

So far, top-flight debutants FC Ingolstadt 04 have surpassed all expectations...

The 54th club to appear in the Bundesliga, few would have anticipated the Bavarians making such a good start to 2015/16, with wins in Mainz, Augsburg and Bremen particularly impressive. A recent dip in form has seen them drop to tenth, but they are still six points clear of the relegation zone thanks in large part to a strong rearguard, which has conceded fewer goals than every other team bar FC Bayern München. Meanwhile, no side has ever had 16 points with only seven goals scored, underlining the efficiency of Die Schanzer's attack.
