• Augsburg have never beaten Schalke in a competitive match (D2 L4). However, FCA have collected a point in each of their Bundesliga home games against S04.
  • FCA have all but confirmed their Bundesliga status: since the three-points-per-win system was introduced in 1995/96, only one side has been relegated with the same amount of points as they currently have (Karlsruhe were relegated with 38 points in 1997/98).
  • Only Bayern (27) have collected more points from the last nine games than Schalke (20) and Augsburg (18).
  • Schalke have only lost one of their last nine Bundesliga games (W6 D2) and have made up 13 points on Bayer 04 Leverkusen during that timeframe.
  • Augsburg have lost just one of their last 12 Bundesliga matches (W7 D4) and are in sixth place in the table for just the second time in Germany's top flight.
  • FCA have conceded at least one goal in their least nine Bundesliga matches and could match a club record in the game against Schalke (10 successive games without a clean sheet between October 2012 and January 2013).
  • Augsburg (57%) and Schalke (56%) have the best clear-cut-chance-conversion rates in the Bundesliga.
  • Back-up goalkeeper Mo Amsif (2005-10), Jan Moravek (13 Bundesliga games, 2 goals between July 2009 and January 2012) and Gelsenkirchen-born Halil Altintop (96 Bundesliga games, 16 goals between July 2006 and January 2010) all used to play for Schalke.
  • Andre Hahn, who got two assists in one Bundesliga game for the first time last weekend against Gladbach, has been involved in more goals for Augsburg than anyone else (10 goals, five assists). No FCA player has scored more than 10 goals in a Bundesliga season.
  • Klaas-Jan Huntelaar scored his third Bundesliga hat-trick last weekend against Hoffenheim and netted his ninth goal of the season in just his 11th competitive match.
  • Only Mario Mandzukic (six goals, four assists) has been involved in more goals than Hahn in 2014 (four goals + five assists) – the Bayern striker is the only player to have scored more goals this calendar year than Huntelaar (five, the same as Josip Drmic and Thomas Müller).
