Borussia Dortmund, too, have notched up a few Bundesliga firsts, with Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang second only to Lewandowski in terms of scoring records. Borussia Mönchengladbach and VfB Stuttgart started the season making negative records. Gladbach at least have turned it around since then, creating new records under caretaker boss Andre Schubert.
