These days, the statisticians don’t just count the goals and cards in a Bundesliga fixture. Passing, possession and touches of the ball are just a few of the figures on offer. Four was a good number for FCB in Friday’s meeting with Freiburg, as the champions chalked up a fourth league win of term and scored four goals. fcbayern.de has pored over the match stats and picked out the highlights.
Facts and stats from the Freiburg clash:
1 - Martin Demichelis, Anatoliy Tymoshchuk and Toni Kroos scored a goal apiece, and each goal was a premiere. Demichelis marked his first start of term with a first goal; Tymoshchuk scored his first-ever Bundesliga goal; Kroos scored his first Bundesliga goal for Bayern.
2 - Bayern scored twice from corners against Freiburg, the champions’ first goals from set-plays this term.
3 - Danijel Pranjic ended the Freiburg clash with three assists, doubling his total for the club. His previous three assists in 27 Bundesliga appearances were all for fellow Croat Ivica Olic, although different team-mates benefited from Danijel’s good work on Friday.
4 - Mario Gomez now has four league goals for the season, and is the most prolific Bundesliga scorer currently at Bayern, with totals of 77 goals in 159 top flight appearances.
