• Bayern have won their last six Bundesliga games against Schalke – that has never happened previously
  • Bayern vs. Schalke is a battle of the only remaining unbeaten Bundesliga sides in 2014. FCB lead the table representing the second half of the season with 15 points, while Schalke follow in second with 13 points.
  • FCB recorded their 14th successive Bundesliga victory in the game against Hannover. Bayern are now just one win short of the Bundesliga record that they set themselves in 2005.
  • Bayern have now scored at least two goals in their last 14 top-flight matches, equalling the Bundesliga record set by Borussia Dortmund (August to December 1995).
  • Guardiola's side haven't conceded a goal in their last six competitive matches, something they last achieved in the previous campaign (December 2012 to February 2013). The last time FCB had a longer run of clean sheets was between August and October 2011 (12 competitive matches).
  • Schalke 04 have only conceded two goals in their last seven Bundesliga games – only FC Bayern can boast the same record in that timeframe.
  • Bayern will be without their top scorer in competitive games, Thomas Müller (20 goals), for the meeting with Schalke.
  • In Schalke's Ralf Fährmann (85.4% of shots saved) and Bayern's Manuel Neuer (84.2%), the league's two best regular goalkeepers this season in terms of save percentage will meet in this encounter.
  • Manuel Neuer has yet to let a goal in against his former club. He has won all five of his Bundesliga games against Schalke without conceding. He was an S04 player between 1991 and 2011 and made 156 Bundesliga appearances for the Royal Blues.
  • We could see a battle between the two half-brothers: Schalke's Kevin-Prince and Bayern's Jerome Boateng. They played together at Hertha BSC between 2002 and 2007 but have only been on the pitch together in 2 Bundesliga matches.
