Robert Lewandowski is the new leader in the Bundesliga goalscoring rankings after his brace against Augsburg. Douglas Costa boasts the most assists in the league. Joshua Kimmich's touches of the ball add up to a remarkable number. Countless fascinating facts and stats underpin the Reds’ dominance in the league. fcbayern.de has taken a closer look at the most striking numbers:

4 Robert Lewandowski has scored four braces in five competitive fixtures since the winter break. Surveying the top five European leagues, no other player can match this tally.

9 Douglas Costa has provided nine assists in the current Bundesliga campaign, a best mark shared with Dortmund's Henrikh Mkhitaryan and Gladbach's Raffael.

14 Thomas Müller has been involved in a whopping 14 goals in 14 league matches, scoring nine times and providing five assists.

21 Lewandowski boasts 21 goals after his brace against Augsburg, topping the scorer rankings ahead of Dortmund's Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang (20) and team-mate Thomas Müller (15). Only one player in the Bundesliga's history has scored more often after 21 matchdays: Gerd Müller (23 goals in the 1972/73 season).

31 goals in 31 competitive fixtures is Lewandowski's outstanding tally this season.

36 Lewandowski and Müller have scored 36 goals in the current Bundesliga campaign, setting a new record at this point of the season. They have beaten the former record set by Gerd Müller (23) and Uli Hoeneß (12) after 21 matchdays in the 1972/73 season by one goal.

56 FC Bayern are on 56 points after 21 matchdays, the second-best tally in the Bundesliga's history. The best was in the 2013/14 season, two years ago, when Bayern had three more points at this stage.

120 Juan Bernat had to wait for 120 days until he made the FCB starting line-up again. The last time the Spaniard was in the starting XI was on 17 October 2015, followed by a long injury spell.

128 Deputising in central defence, Joshua Kimmich had 128 touches of the ball in Augsburg – by far a best-mark in this position.
