Ingolstadt's Audi Sportpark and the Säbener Strasse are only 84 kilometres apart, which makes Saturday's journey Bayern's shortest away trip in the Bundesliga. The record shows why the Munich men like to go there. fcbayern.com has collected the most interesting facts and stats prior to the all-Bavaria derby.
FC Bayern and FC Ingolstadt have only crossed swords in three Bundesliga fixtures and one cup tie so far, and the numbers tell the story: the German record champions have won all four of the matches, scoring 13 and conceding only two goals. FCB fans have fond memories of the encounter in May 2016. The 2-1 victory away to Ingolstadt on Matchday 33 meant FC Bayern could no longer be toppled from their perch, winning the Bundesliga for the fourth time in a row.
Carlo Ancelotti's troops have opened the scoring in 14 Bundesliga matches so far this term and went on to take points in all of these matches, winning 11 and drawing three. FCI on the other hand have conceded the opener in 12 matches, and they failed to take any points in these games. It will be crucial to score the first goal on Saturday.
Bayern's away power
The men from Munich have clocked up 22 points on the road, a best-mark in the Bundesliga. FCB have won all of their last four away matches. Overall Bayern have 46 points, more than three times as many as Ingolstadt (15). The hosts have only taken eight points at home, which makes them the bottom club in this regard, equal with VfL Wolfsburg.
Bayern have scored seven Bundesliga goals against Ingolstadt, and Robert Lewandowski has netted no fewer than four of them. No Bundesliga player boasts more goals against FCI, with only Dortmund's Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang and Köln's Anthony Modeste equalling Lewy's tally.
Zwayer in charge
On Saturday Felix Zwayer takes charge of his third game involving the Reds this term. The 35-year-old estate agent previously oversaw the 1-0 victory over Hamburg and the 3-0 win against RB Leipzig. His assistants will be Thorsten Schiffner and Sascha Thielert, with Robert Kempter acting as fourth official.
