Top facts on the clash at Leipzig
On Matchday 5 in the Google Pixel Women's Bundesliga, FC Bayern Women visit promoted team RB Leipzig this Sunday evening (kick-off 18:30 CEST). fcbayern.com has compiled the best facts and figures ahead of the match - find out which incredible streaks the Frauen want to extend in the clash with the Saxons and what speaks in favour of head coach Alexander Straus' team remaining unbeaten this term.
1. Good run against newcomers
This record is truly impressive: FCB have won all of their last 36 Bundesliga matches against promoted teams. The Munich women have scored 154 goals and conceded only 10. The last dropped point against a promoted team was almost ten years ago: In June 2014, Munich were narrowly beaten 3-2 by TSG 1899 Hoffenheim.
2. Study in contrasts
With only two goals conceded and three clean sheets, FCB are the league's joint best defence to date along with VfL Wolfsburg. Their upcoming opponents from Saxony, on the other hand, are the only team in the league to have conceded at least two goals on all four matchdays so far (nine goals in total). Only MSV Duisburg (16) and the second promoted team from Nürnberg (15) have conceded more goals than RBL.
3. On-song Schüller
With two goals and one assist, Lea Schüller has already underlined her attacking quality across the first four matchdays. The 25-year-old has also fired in the most shots in the league to date (14) and, together with Wolfsburg's Ewa Pajor, has the most contacts in the penalty area (29). The Germany international will be looking for her next goals and assists against Leipzig on Sunday evening, seeking to lead FCB to their third win of the season.
4. FCB near-unbeatable in the league
FCB's unbeaten streak continues: Head coach Alexander Straus's team have gone 21 Bundesliga games without defeat (18 wins, 3 draws). The last time the Munich women lost was a 2-1 reverse almost a year ago at VfL Wolfsburg. In fact, under their Norwegian boss, FCB have only failed to win a total of five Bundesliga matches.
