What an up and down game for FC Bayern at home to Bielefeld! The Munich team hung on in there after going two goals down and earned themselves a 3-3 draw. In doing so, FCB underscored their status as a record-setting attacking team and helped Bayern achieve a curious Bundesliga record. Read that plus other interesting facts about the six-goal thriller here:
1. Lewandowski underscores world player title
Lewandowski scored against Bielefeld to halve the deficit to 2-1 at the time.
Bayern scored three times against Bielefeld and, of course, Robert Lewandowski's name was one of those on the scoresheet. It was the world footballer of the year's 25th goal of the season already. In total, Lewandowski has already scored 30 goals in all competitions - no other player from Europe's top 5 leagues has netted as many times this season.
2. Is Lewandowski outperforming Der Bomber?
Never before has a player in Bundesliga history scored as many goals after 21 games as Lewandowski so far this season. In his record-topping 40-goal season in 1971/72, Gerd Müller had 23 goals after 21 matchdays.
3. Tolisso and Davies extend FCB scoring streak
After scoring a goal in both the Champions League and the DFL Supercup, Corentin Tolisso was finally able to celebrate a league goal.

Davies scored to make it 3-3, his fifth goal in an FCB shirt. He's scored all of them in the Bundesliga and all at the Allianz Arena.
