• Frankfurt have secured 30 victories, including 10 away wins against Bremen. Only against Gladbach have they collected the same amount of total and away wins.
  • Frankfurt are undefeated in their last six Bundesliga matches against Bremen (three wins, three draws). The last and only other time they had a similar record was between 1973 and 1976 (five wins, one draw).
  • Including last season, Frankfurt have won just one of their last six Bundesliga games (two draws, three defeats). Bremen have also struggled recently (two defeats).
  • Bremen have scored just three goals in four matches, while Frankfurt have scored just four goals. Only Braunschweig (one goal) have scored fewer goals than Bremen this season.
  • However, none of Bremen's last 54 league games have ended in a goalless draw; that is the longest run of its kind in the Bundesliga.
  • Across the league, Bremen have had the fewest shots (34) and are the only team not to have created a clear-cut chance.
  • Frankfurt's new signing Vaclav Kadlec has been directly involved in a goal in both of his Bundesliga appearances so far. His equaliser (1-1) against Dortmund on matchday 4 was his first goal in Germany's top flight and the first goal from a Frankfurt striker this season.
  • Armin Veh has faced Bremen 13 times in the Bundesliga with Rostock, Stuttgart, Wolfsburg, Hamburg and Frankfurt and has won seven games (D3 L3). In those 13 games, an impressive 57 goals were scored (an average of 4.38 per game).
  • Frankfurt skipper Pirmin Schwegler is out for several weeks with a collateral ligament tear. So far this season, Frankfurt have lost all three of their games when the Swiss player has been in the team, but without him they secured their first win of the season (2-0 in Braunschweig).
  • Santiago Garcia (Bremen) and Tranquillo Barnetta (Frankfurt) were two last minute signings for each club. Marko Arnautovic left Bremen for the English Premier League and with six assists last season, he provided the second most goals for Bremen.
