Facts from Bayern’s goal-filled derby victory over Augsburg
There was plenty of action at the Allianz Arena on Saturday as Bayern beat Augsburg 5-3 in a thrilling encounter. No Bundesliga fixture this season has seen more goals than this Bavarian derby (there were also eight in FCB’s 6-2 victory over Mainz and Köln’s 7-1 thrashing of Werder Bremen). Find out about some of the other facts and stats from the game here.
1. Bayern’s impressive run at home
Bayern are currently unbeaten at home in their last 25 competitive fixtures (W18, D7), while it’s 19 in the Bundesliga (W13, D6). They last tasted defeat at the Allianz Arena in January 2022 against Borussia Mönchengladbach in the league (2-1).
2. Müller hot on Neuer’s heels
Thomas Müller came off the bench in the second half to bring up the 311th win of his illustrious Bundesliga career. It saw him go clear of club CEO Oliver Kahn and now only has Manuel Neuer ahead of him for the most victories in Bundesliga history (322).
3. Another attacking spectacle
This was the tenth time this season, from 36 matches across all competitions, that Bayern have scored five goals or more. The Munich men have also now scored in 69 competitive home fixtures in a row.
4. Davies equals PB
Alphonso Davies scored to make it 5-2 in the 74th minute, taking him to three goals and eight assists in his 31 competitive outings this season. That means he’s now equalled his personal best for goal involvements in a season from the 2019/20 treble-winning campaign, when he made 43 appearances. The Canadian has already contributed two goals and four assists in 12 games in 2023. Only Müller and Eric Maxim Choupo-Moting can top that in red (both seven).
5. FCB’s record-setting first halves
The record champions have scored 47 times in the first halves of Bundesliga games this season. Never before had a team netted more than 35 in the first 45 minutes of the first 24 matchdays in the German top flight.
6. Sane heads above the rest
Leroy Sane made it 4-1 just before the break with his first headed goal in the Bundesliga for over seven years, when he netted for Schalke against Ingolstadt in October 2015. The Germany international has now equalled his Bundesliga tally of seven from last season. He’s only previously had more in 2015/16 for Schalke (eight).
