  • Bayern are unbeaten in their last 36 Bundesliga matches (30 wins) and have matched Hamburg’s record (36 consecutive games unbeaten from January 1982 to January 1983).
  • FCB have gone 1-0 down in their last three Bundesliga matches – that last happened in September/October 2010 (also against Hoffenheim and Mainz back then).
  • The record champions have conceded in each of their last four Bundesliga games, something that last happened in November/December 2011 (5 games in a row back then).
