FC Bayern beat runners-up Borussia Dortmund 4-0 in Saturday's Bundesliga top match, extending their run to six consecutive home victories over the Ruhr valley outfit, the home fans hailing their team at the Allianz Arena. The German record champions only achieved a similar number between 1977 and 1984, when they beat Dortmund in eight home matches in a row. But Saturday's edition of Der Klassiker yielded many more impressive stats.

2,500 – Robert Lewandowski scored FC Bayern's 2,500th Bundesliga goal at home when he netted Bayern's third goal on Saturday.

1,100 – FC Bayern won their 1,100th Bundesliga match when they downed Dortmund, extending their best mark. Dortmund on 789 wins lie second.

250 – Speaking of victories, Manuel Neuer celebrated his 250th Bundesliga win against Dortmund, now level with Philipp Lahm. Only Oliver Kahn on 310 and Manfred Kaltz on 291 victories boast more.

150 – Leon Goretzka made his 150th Bundesliga appearance on Saturday. It was his 50th competitive match for FC Bayern.

125 – FC Bayern have gone unbeaten in 125 consecutive home matches when they were up at half-time, winning 118 and drawing seven matches. The last time the German record champions lost despite a half-time lead dates back to April 2007, a 2-1 reverse against Hamburger SV.

100 – Thomas Müller made his 100th Bundesliga assist when he set up Serge Gnabry's goal. The 30-year-old is the first player to reach this mark since detailed data collection began in 2004/05.
