Bayern moved to the top of the Bundesliga courtesy of Sunday’s 1-0 victory over Hamburg, the perfect way to mark the famous Munich club's 110th birthday. However, the northern visitors pushed the home side all the way across 90 tense minutes, and more than matched Louis van Gaal's team in a number of areas. fcbayern.de has pored over the match stats and picked out the highlights.
1 - The jinx hanging over FCB’s meetings with HSV at the Allianz Arena has ended. The fifth home Bundesliga encounter with the northerners at the Arena finally produced Munich’s first win. Bayern previously lost twice, 2-1 on both occasions, with two draws (1-1 and 2-2).
17 - Bayern last lost in the Bundesliga away to Hamburg on Matchday 7. Sunday’s victory means Munich are now undefeated in their last 17 league games. The same number applies to Bayern’s undefeated run in all competitions, which now stands at 17 matches..
40 - Ribéry’s 78th-minute winner was Bayern’s 40th goal from open play this term, a Bundesliga best.
