1. FCB on course for league title

The win at Freiburg extended FCB's lead at the top of the table to nine points.

Thanks to the 4-1 win at SC Freiburg and the 4-1 defeat for Borussia Dortmund against RB Leipzig, FC Bayern have extended the lead at the top of the table to nine points. Such a gap has never before been made up at such a late point in the season since the introduction of the three points for a win rule.

2. Top sprinters meet

The match between FC Bayern in FC Augsburg brings together the two teams with the most sprints in the current Bundesliga campaign. FCB have clocked up 253 sprints per game, FCA 250.

3. Goal machine working flat out in the Bundesliga

Bayern scored goals 82 to 85 of the season against Freiburg.

Bayern have scored an impressive 85 goals this season after 28 games – FCB have thereby broken their record from the 1973/74 season (83). In addition, FC Bayern have scored in all of their last 75 league games – a current record!

4. Will Müller make it 300?


Thomas Müller could bring up his 300th Bundesliga win on Saturday.

Thomas Müller is on the verge of 300 wins in the Bundesliga. If Bayern beat Augsburg on Saturday, the FCB number 25 would be the third player at the club to reach that total following on from Oliver Kahn (310) and Manuel Neuer (currently on 312). Müller would be the first player in the league's history to reach the 300 milestone for one and the same club.
