7 facts about the away game at VfB Stuttgart
Curtain up for the south Germany showdown! FC Bayern can look forward to a historic rivalry at VfB Stuttgart on Saturday evening (18:30 CET) – in which the record champions have naturally played their part. Find out what it's all about in the facts and figures for the game:
1. Record champions are also record winners
Bayern have won 67 of 107 Bundesliga meetings with Stuttgart (22 draws, 18 defeats). In the history of the competition, no other team has celebrated so many victories against one opponent. The total of 80 competitive wins by Bayern against VfB since the Bundesliga was founded is also a record in German professional football.
2. Winning streak in Swabia and possible away record
The record champions have won their last 10 Bundesliga and 12 competitive games in Stuttgart. Only the Bavarians have a longer, cross-competition winning streak against one club in German professional football - currently 13 away wins in a row at Werder Bremen. In addition, the Munich side have scored 98 goals in 53 Bundesliga visits to Swabia. They could now be the first team in the top German division to reach the 100-goal mark at another club.
3. Saturday night is Bayern time
Bayern are undefeated in their last 24 Bundesliga games in the Saturday evening slot (W19 D5). The last defeat at this kick-off time was the 2-1 loss to Bayer 04 Leverkusen at the Allianz Arena in November 2019.
4. Big milestone for Davies
Alphonso Davies could make his 100th Bundesliga appearance for Bayern at VfB. The 22-year-old Canadian would be the youngest non-German player in club history to reach this mark - and the sixth youngest ever.
5. Müller wants his next record
Bayern veteran Thomas Müller provided two assists in the 3-0 win against Union Berlin and picked up his 298th and 299th direct goal involvement in the Bundesliga (141 goals, 158 assists). If the 33-year-old manages to play a part in a Bayern goal in Stuttgart, he would be only the second player to break the 300 mark since detailed data was first collected in 2004/05 – Robert Lewandowski managed 367.

6. Ex-Bayern man Labbadia has bad memories of the Reds
VfB coach Bruno Labbadia wore the Bayern shirt for three years (1991-94) and won the German title in 1994. However, more recent memories of his former club are not so pleasant. After a 1-0 win with Hamburger SV in the Bundesliga in September 2009, the coach has lost every one of his 16 competitive games against Bayern (with 16 goals scored and 52 conceded). No other coach in German professional football had such a long losing streak against one opponent.
7. League leaders Bayern have led the longest
Julian Nagelsmann's team have been in the lead for 1,099 minutes this season, longer than any other team. Conversely, opponents Stuttgart have been in the lead for 250 minutes. Only Schalke 04 (233) have been ahead for less time this Bundesliga season.
