Bundesliga Opta Facts: 26-28 April

SpVgg Greuther Furth - Hannover 96

  • If this game ends as a draw or a victory for Hannover, Furth could become the first side to be relegated this season (depending on Saturday's results). Monchengladbach were the last Bundesliga club to go down as early as matchday 31, six years ago.
  • Hannover's last trip to Furth came in May 2002 when they won 5-1 in the second division. This is Hannover's most recent match in the second division.
  • There has never been a side in German professional football (i.e. Bundesliga, second division, third division) to go an entire season without home victory. Furth have failed to win any home games this season, with two more remaining.
  • Hannover have gained only ten points from their last 21 Bundesliga away matches (63 possible points). They have lost 17, drawn one and won only three.
  • Hannover have lost all three games on a Friday in 2012/13. The team have conceded ten goals in these three (away) matches.
  • Furth (46.8%) and Hannover (47.0%) have the lowest duel success rates in the top flight.
  • No side has seen as many yellows as Furth and Hannover this season (67 each).
  • No team has attempted as few (118) or faced as many shots (235) as Hannover in 2013.

  • Freiburg haven't won any of their last 21 Bundesliga games against Bayern (L17, D4). They have gained only one point from their last 14 Bundesliga matches against Bayern.
  • Freiburg have never won a Bundesliga game in the city of Munich. Not against Bayern (L11 D2), not against TSV 1860 Munich (L7, D1) and not at Unterhaching (L1 D1).
  • Freiburg's highest Bundesliga loss came in their last away game against Bayern (September 2011). Mario Gomez scored 4 times and Franck Ribery a brace in a 0-7 thrashing for Freiburg.
  • Bayern have collected 81 points from 30 games. Never in Bundesliga history has a side won more points in an entire season (Dortmund also 81 in 2011/12) which means that Bayern will set a new Bundesliga record if they collect one more point from their remaining four games.
  • Never before has a club scored 89 goals after 30 games. The record for an entire season is 101, which means that Bayern will set a new record if they score 13 in their remaining four games.
  • Bayern are the first side to have won the first 13 games in the second half of the season. Never before has a club won 13 consecutive Bundesliga games within one season.
  • Freiburg and Bayern have hit woodwork 16 times (each), only Werder Bremen have done so more (17).
  • No other Bundesliga goalkeeper has made as many individual errors resulting in a goal (8) as Manuel Neuer in the past three years (since summer 2010). The German national has been directly responsible for 10% of his respective teams' conceded goals in that period.
  • Freiburg captain Julian Schuster will miss the game due to previously picking up his 10th booking.
