• Hamburg have lost their last four competitive matches against FC Bayern with a goal record of 3:20. Their last win was a 1-0 victory in September 2009. Since then, HSV have recorded two draws and seven defeats in nine competitive meetings.
  • HSV have only collected four points from their last seven games and each of their last three matches have ended in defeat.
  • Hamburg are having the worst Bundesliga season in their history. Their lowest ever points tally (36, 2011/12) can no longer be reached. They have also never lost 19 games before – their previous record was 16 defeats within a season.
  • With 68 goals conceded, Hamburg have the league’s leakiest defence and have already equalled their club record (68 goals conceded in 1987/88). Bayern have scored the most goals (89) and have conceded the fewest (22).
  • Of the 14 Bundesliga teams that have had exactly 27 points at this stage of the season, only one has avoided relegation – Hannover in 2009/10 under current HSV manager Mirko Slomka.
  • Bayern only need to score one goal in this game to match Bremen’s record for the most away goals scored in a Bundesliga season, set in 2006/07 (43). FCB have currently scored 42 away goals (the same amount as last season).
  • With 21 Bundesliga goals from headers, Bayern have equalled the record tally since data collection began (2001/02) – it’s a record they now share with Bochum (2003/04) and Schalke (2007/08).
  • Rene Adler has made mistakes leading to seven goals this season (most recently against Augsburg on the last matchday), a season high since Opta started collecting this statistic in 2007/08.
  • Manuel Neuer could make his 250th Bundesliga appearance, Dante his 150th and Diego Contento could play his 50th top-flight game.
  • Claudio Pizarro has scored 18 goals in 21 Bundesliga games against HSV. Against no other club has the striker scored anywhere near as often. However, he has only scored four of those 18 goals in Hamburg, with the last one coming in November 2006.
