DID YOU KNOW: 5 interesting facts and stats from matchday 26 in the Bundesliga

April 3, 2017 By Michelle Bonsu
LiveSoccerTV.com casts an eye over all the happenings throughout Germany this past weekend as Bayern cruise to victory whilst the race for Champions League football heats up.

Bayern are simply unstoppable at the moment. Die Roten marked their return from the international break by cruising to a comfortable win over Augsburg and right now sit a whopping 13 points clear of RB Leipzig.

Can anyone stop Carlo Ancelotti's side from defending their Bundesliga title? Highly unlikely. But there are still plenty of points to note from matchday 26.

1. Bayern's Lewandowski not the only one to score a fast hat-trick

Ex-Bayern man Mario Gomez has been enjoying his football once again. After spells with Fiorentina and Beskitas, he's back in his native Germany and has had a great spell so far with Wolfsburg. Although die Wolfe are struggling to break into the top half of the table, Gomez has netted 12 goals so far, which is nearly 50 per cent of his team's total.

2. Shakespeare's wrong: There isn't always something rotten in the state of Denmark

Heard of Thomas Delaney? If not, well now you might. The 25-year-old, who is of Irish-American heritage, netted a hat-trick as Werder Bremen earned a 5-2 victory over Freiburg this past Saturday.

And in doing so, he not only grabbed his first trio of goals, but also set a unique milestone:

3. Finally a breakthrough for Thomas Muller?

It's not been the best of seasons for Thomas Muller, and everyone can certainly feel the 2014 World Cup winner's frustration. He has earned an impressive ten assists, but at the end of the day, it's goals that count and they have seemingly dried up for him this term.

However, he has slowly began to get back on track. Muller's goal proved to be the deciding factor for die Roten in a 1-0 win over Borussia Moenchengladbach before the break, and he added a brace during the team's 6-0 demolition of Augsburg.

This stat shows how he really has struggled to find his best form, and fans will be hoping that this marks a long-awaited breakthrough for the Bayern ace:

4. A nightmare to forget for Augsburg

Speaking of Augsburg, did we mention they lost 6-0? They are not the first team to be humiliated by a rampant Bayern at the Allianz Arena, but they have never been on the end of such an awful loss and so set a rather unwanted precedent in the process:

5. If at first you don't succeed...try, try, and try again

Leipzig's Emil Forsberg leads the assist charts with 11, but the Swede obviously wants to do more than just help others in scoring goals. He ended up grabbing one against Darmstadt as die Bullen earned a 4-0 win to finally get back on track, but not due to any lack of trying:

How the battle for the Torjägerkanone is shaping up

Dortmund's Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang is facing some serious competition as the battle for the coveted Torjägerkanone heats up. And as we can see here, Koln's Anthony Modeste is still keen on having a say in the outcome as he is not too far behind the top two.

Key assist providers

Here's how the providers stack up after 26 rounds:
