Bayern had the chances to win but came up a fraction short of victory in Nürnberg. However, two Munich players were left with at least something to celebrate after the 1-1 draw in the 180th all-Bavaria derby, as Diego Contento and Mark van Bommel, two men at the opposite ends of their careers, both passed significant milestones. fcbayern.de has pored over the match stats and picked out the highlights.
1 - The tag ‘high-flyer’ sits well with Diego Contento at present. The 19-year-old Bayern youth product made his senior debut in the DFB Cup ten days ago, was handed a first run-out in the Champions League in midweek, and capped the lot with his Bundesliga debut in Nürnberg.
7-3 | 14-3 | 14-7 – The corner, cross and shots at goal counts in Nürnberg underline Bayern’s dominance of the match.
13 - Thomas Müller has moved onto 13 goals in all competitions this term. The 20-year-old, a third division player for the whole of last season, fired his seventh Bundesliga goal in Nürnberg. He has scored four times in the DFB Cup and twice in the Champions League.
16 – Bayern’s winning streak of 13 games in all competitions has come to an end, but FCB’s undefeated run in the Bundesliga continues. The Nürnberg clash was Munich’s 16th consecutive league game without defeat (11 wins, 5 draws). Bayern last managed that in 2005-6, a campaign which ended with the league title.
34 – Germany international pair Mario Gomez and Philipp Lahm are the only men at FCB to have appeared in all 34 competitive fixtures so far this season.
52-48 | 62-38 – The stats measuring challenges for the ball and possession also served to emphasise Bayern’s superiority over the relegation-threatened home team.
100 - Mark van Bommel passed a momentous milestone in Nürnberg, where the Bayern captain made it a century of German top flight outings.
