• Gladbach have scored an average of six goals in their last four Bundesliga meetings with Braunschweig (6-2, 10-0, 4-0 and 4-1 wins). Borussia have only lost one of the last 11 top-flight encounters with their opponents (W8 D2) – a 3-1 defeat in Braunschweig in August 1983.
  • Braunschweig lost 10-0 to Gladbach in October 1984, their biggest Bundesliga defeat to date.  It was the last time that a top-flight side conceded a double-figure goal tally in a game.
  • Seven of the 10 sides that have had 15 points after 22 Bundesliga games (assuming three points for a win), as Braunschweig do now, have ended up being relegated. The last team that avoided the drop with this record was Augsburg in 2012/13.
  • Gladbach haven't won in seven games (D4 L3) – their longest winless run under Lucien Favre. Only Stuttgart (seven defeats) have also been waiting as long for a Bundesliga victory.
  • Braunschweig conceded two goals within two minutes of the restart against Nürnberg, a first in the Bundesliga for a side playing with more players than their opponents.
  • Eintracht lost against Nürnberg (2-1) despite having more players on the pitch and taking the lead – the last time that happened to a Bundesliga side was Hoffenheim, who lost 3-2 in Freiburg on April 9th 2011.
  • Six of Braunschweig's last seven goals have come from set-pieces – Eintracht have only scored one goal from a set-piece in the first 16 games of the season. The Lions have now scored a bigger share of their goals from set-pieces than another side in the league (44%).
  • Gladbach are the only team in the league yet to concede a goal from a corner. Last week's game against Hoffenheim produced the first goal that Borussia have scored from a corner this season – Jantschke headed it in.
  • Since being promoted from the third division, Braunschweig have only converted four of their 10 penalties in the top two tiers. Domi Kumbela has been responsible for three of the six misses.
  • Max Kruse has yet to score or assist a goal in 2014 and has only netted once in his last 11 Bundesliga matches (from the penalty spot). He also converted a penalty in the 4-1 win against Braunschweig earlier this season.
