Five facts before the top clash

Postby FCBayernNews » Sat Oct 01, 2016 11:15 am

FC Bayern against FC Köln, the table-toppers against the side lying third: it's the Bundesliga top clash on Matchday 6. presents five facts in the build-up to the match:

Fact 1: Both teams are unbeaten this term

Köln are unbeaten in their last ten Bundesliga fixtures, having won five and drawn five matches. The last time the Rhineland side managed a feat like this was more than 25 years ago, from March to May 1991. Only one team boast a longer streak without defeat: FC Bayern, who are unbeaten in 15.

Fact 2: Defensive strength

Bayern and Köln possess the two strongest rearguards in the league. The Billy Goats have conceded two goals so far, the German record champions only one.

Fact 3: Bayern's bogey opponents

FC Bayern have not lost more Bundesliga home matches against any other team than Köln, who have already won nine times in Munich. Taken altogether, the Bavarians have only lost more matches against Werder Bremen (26) than against the Rhineland side (23).

Fact 4: Winning streak

Bayern's recent record against Köln is very strong. The German record champions have won all of their last six duels, scoring a whopping 18 goals and conceding only two. Bayern's last defeat dates back to February 2011, a 2-1 reverse. Bayern's overall record against Köln: 41 wins, 23 defeats, 22 draws, with 168 goals scored and 115 conceded.

Fact 5: Impressive Oktoberfest record

FC Bayern are unbeaten in 21 Bundesliga matches during the Oktoberfest, winning 18 and drawing three. If this is impressive, the goal difference is astonishing: Bayern have scored 53 goals and conceded a mere four!
