The top clash between Dortmund and Bayern was a duel between the Bundesliga's best defence and best attack, and Bayern's power up front prevailed in the 3-2 victory. Dortmund conceded three goals against FCB, one more than in their first six league matches taken altogether. Here are the facts on Bayern's record-breaking attack.

FCB more efficient

Hansi Flick's men took one fewer shot than the hosts (14 v 15) but were more efficient and sealed their fourth straight league victory against the Black and Yellows. The only time Bayern boasted a similar streak was from 1968 to 1970, when they won five matches on the bounce.

Bayern equal BL record

FC Bayern boast 27 goals after seven matches, equalling the Bundesliga record set by Borussia Mönchengladbach in the 1973/74 campaign.

Flick's goal record

In 31 Bundesliga matches under Hansi Flick, Bayern have scored 102 goals! No other coach has achieved the 100-goal mark so quickly in the German top flight.

David Alaba scored Flick's 100th goal with a remarkable free-kick just before half-time.

Bayern always score away

Since the beginning of the 2019/20 season, the Munich team have scored in all 21 of their away games in the Bundesliga - which makes the record champions a real force on foreign soil: FC Bayern have won 13 of the last 14 Bundesliga games on the road, losing only once.

Bayern attack unmatched in Europe

Since Hansi Flick took over as coach at FC Bayern about a year ago (3 November 2019), no team from Europe's five major leagues has scored as many goals per competitive match as his team (3.3 per game, or 163 goals in 49 games).
