Facts on the Women's Bundesliga game away at Werder Bremen
Fresh from Wednesday’s Champions League encounter with Roma and back-to-back home games in the Google Pixel Bundesliga, FC Bayern Women are on the road again as they visit Werder Bremen looking to extend their 25-game unbeaten run in the league and retain top spot in the table. Find out what the stats say ahead of the match here.
1. Longest away trip
It’s around 760 kilometres as the crow flies between the FC Bayern Campus and the home of Werder’s women’s team on pitch 11 at the Weserstadion. That is the furthest distance between any two grounds in this season’s Bundesliga.
2. Longest run of clean sheets
Bayern have gone seven meetings with Bremen without conceding a goal, which is the team’s best run of clean sheets against a particular opponent. The last encounter saw Mala Grohs and her defence ensure a 2-0 away win, with Lea Schüller and Maximiliane Rall getting the goals. Bayern also have the tightest defence in the Bundesliga this season with only three goals conceded.
3. Fast vs. Slow starters
Bayern have scored four of their 13 goals this campaign in the opening quarter of an hour of games – a league high. By contrast, the final 15 minutes have been somewhat quieter for Alexander Straus’s team with only one goal. It’s the opposite with Werder, who only have one goal in the first 15 but four in the final quarter-hour. Only Hoffenheim have got more goals in the closing period with six.
4. Eight goalscorers apiece
Bayern and Bremen both boast eight different goalscorers in the Bundesliga this season. FCB’s scoring collective consists of Schüller, Katharina Naschenweng, Pernille Harder, Linda Dallmann, Giulia Gwinn, Jovana Damnjanovic, Klara Bühl and now Georgia Stanway, who rapped up last weekend’s 2-0 win over Duisburg.
5. Pass masters
No team in the Bundesliga has played as many passes so far this season as Bayern, with 4,063 over the first seven games. The completion rate is an impressive 84 percent – also the best in the division. Werder’s total comes to 2,505 passes, which is around 38 percent less than that of the champions. Their accuracy rate comes in at 70 percent.
