Bayern have won all their previous 24 games against newly-promoted teams with a goal difference of 80 to 11. The last time points were dropped was in a 2-0 defeat at Kaiserslautern in 2010. fcbayern.de brings you the best of the stats and facts ahead of the game against FC Ingolstadt.
Bayern strong on the road
While recent Champions League away games have not gone to plan Bayern are on a run in the Bundesliga: The one and only defeat away from home this term came on matchday 15 with Borussia Mönchengladbach securing a 3-1 win. The other games in the current campaign produced 12 wins and three draws.
Bundesliga record in sight
Manuel Neuer has only conceded 15 goals in the league this season, and he could improve on his own record of 18 if the current trend continues: Neuer has only had to pick the ball out of his own net twice in the last eight Bundesliga fixtures. The World’s Best Goalkeeper has already set a new club record with 20 clean sheets so far.
Two games, two wins
Saturday's clash will be just the third-ever competitive match between FC Bayern and FC Ingolstadt. In addition to last year’s previous league meeting, won 2-0 by FCB, the two teams faced each other in Round 2 of the DFB Cup in 2011/12 with FC Bayern running out 6-0 winners in the Bavarian derby.
FCI unbeaten at home in 2016
Only Ingolstadt and Borussia Dortmund have not tasted defeat in front of their own fans this year (five wins, three draws). However, the Bundesliga newcomers have only won two of their last ten league games (plus five draws and three defeats).
Meyer the man in the middle
Florian Meyer will referee Saturday’s game. This will be the fifth time the match official from Burgdorf has been involved in refereeing the record champions this term. The 47-year-old solicitor was last in charge for the 1-0 victory over Eintracht Frankfurt four weeks ago and, before that, he refereed the games against FC Augsburg (3-1), FC Köln (4-0) and Bayer Leverkusen (3-0). Meyer’s assistants are Frank Willenborg and Christoph Bornhorst and Timo Gerach is the fourth official.
