On Matchday 20, FC Bayern travel to the capital to play Hertha BSC (Friday, 20:00 CET). In addition to getting three important points in the battle for top spot, Hansi Flick's team will also be looking to extend a few of their runs. Check out our facts and figures on the clash with the Old Lady of the Bundesliga.

1. Bayern with the much better record

Of the 71 Bundesliga encounters with Hertha so far, Bayern have only lost ten (W41, D20), and in the most recent 34 clashes, the men from Munich have only lost twice (W23, D9). Hertha's last win against the Reds was at home in September 2018 under head coach Pál Dárdai, who celebrates his return to the Olympic stadium on Friday.

2. Second half of the season belongs to Bayern

The record champions are now unbeaten in 33 post-winter break matches in the Bundesliga and have emerged as winners from their past 29 games in the second half of the season (plus four draws).

3. Slump in form vs. impressive form

Hertha BSC are winless in five Bundesliga games, longer than any other team in the top flight. During this period, the Berliners have only picked up one point. The men from Munich, on the other hand, travel to the capital with four straight wins under their belts.

Bayern's 4-1 win over Hoffenheim last on Matchday 19 was their fourth straight success.

4. Bayern just can't stop scoring

Bayern have always scored at least once in their last 50 competitive matches, with the record champions scoring at least three times per match on average. The only longer scoring run for the Reds came between 2013 and 2014, when they netted in 61 competitive matches on the bounce.

5. Neuer has next record in his sights

Manuel Neuer has kept a clean sheet 15 times in 22 Bundesliga games against Hertha - in the history of Germany's top flight, only Oliver Reck has managed that feat for the same number of games against Borussia Mönchengladbach. So on Friday evening, the Best FIFA Men's Goalkeeper could set a new record.

With a four-goal haul, Robert Lewandowski almost single-handedly won the reverse fixture at the Allianz Arena (4-3):
