• These two sides have never met in the Bundesliga. There has only been one goal in the two competitive matches between them (2006/07 in the second division) since the Bundesliga’s introduction in 1963 (1 Augsburg win, 1 draw).
  • Augsburg are having their best ever Bundesliga campaign: previously, the earliest they had reached the 20-point mark was on matchday 23.
  • Braunschweig are experiencing their worst ever Bundesliga season with just eight points from 15 games. They had at least 12 points at this stage in each of the three campaigns that ended with them being relegated (1972/73, 1979/90 and 1984/85).
  • Following their 1-0 win in Hamburg, Augsburg have now kept a clean sheet in their last three Bundesliga games, setting a new club record. Only Bayern and Leverkusen are currently on longer runs without conceding than FCA (270 minutes).
  • Eintracht are without a win in four games (D1, L3) and are the only Bundesliga team not to have scored in this timeframe (369 minutes without scoring). Five consecutive top-flight matches without finding the back of the net would be a new club record.
  • Augsburg have scored seven of their last eight Bundesliga goals in the first half an hour of games.
  • On average, Augsburg have claimed 1.25 points for each of their 16 Bundesliga goals – a league-best.
  • There have only been 36 goals in games involving Braunschweig – a league-low. There have only been three goals more in Augsburg matches (39).
  • Marwin Hitz has been in goal seven times for FCA this season and has saved 81.5% of the shots on his goal – second best in the league behind Manuel Neuer. Weinzierl’s side have collected 16 of a possible 21 points with Hitz in net and have also kept four clean sheets.
  • The match against Braunschweig will be Markus Weinzierl’s 50th Bundesliga game as Augsburg manager.
