Rock-solid rearguard

Only two goals against in six league games

The Bundesliga scoring chart is headed by Mario Mandzukic, with Thomas Müller right behind him. The pair lead FCB's superb forward line, with the Croat on six goals and Thomas on four. Bastian Schweinsteiger and Toni Kroos also have three goals apiece, but the likes of defender Holger Badstuber don't appear in the ranking. However, a glance at the league table shows just how well the Munich rearguard is performing.

The goals scored column shows 19, but the goals conceded tally is just two, one of them a penalty. “As a defender, you register a clean sheet much more than a striker would. We're delighted it's going so well at the back," said Badstuber on the day after the 2-0 victory in Bremen. On Matchday 6, the Bayern defence once again all but shut out their opponents.
