DID YOU KNOW: 5 interesting facts and stats from matchday 28 in the Bundesliga

April 10, 2017 By Michelle Bonsu
LiveSoccerTV.com casts an eye over all the happenings throughout Germany this past weekend as Bayern crush Dortmund in Der Klassiker and Darmstadt's woes appear to have no end..

If it feels like the Bundesliga fixture list is a bit congested, well, it is. All 18 teams had to play three games in the span of one week. That means, for instance, Bayern Munich were on action on April 1st, then again on the 4th and finally on the 8th, when they took on Dortmund in Der Klassiker.

Die Roten rebounded quite well from a surprise reversal to Hoffenheim midweek by blitzing die Schwarzgelben, and now they are enjoying their ten point lead on top of the table. They have already sealed their spot in the Champions League (as expected) for next season and now it's just a matter of seeing out the season. Let's have a look at some of the talking points from matchday 28 in the Bundesliga.

1. Traveling worries for Thomas Tuchel...

It goes without saying that Borussia Dortmund under Thomas Tuchel are a different side on the road than at home. For instance, die Schwarzgelben were frustrated as they lost 1-0 to Benfica, but rebounded in style as they crushed the Portuguese outfit 4-0 at Signal Iduna Park.

Dortmund will still be licking their wounds after a disappointing showing in Saturday's Klassiker, where they were thoroughly beaten 4-1 by Bayern. Meanwhile, they had edged out their Bavarian foes 1-0 in their previous encounter - but again, that was at Signal Iduna Park. This stat further illustrates Tuchel's difficulties with Dortmund in their travels:

2. ...but meanwhile, there's really no place like home for Bayern

11 wins, three draws, zero losses. So stands Bayern's record at the Allianz Arena in Bundesliga action. Overall, die Roten have yet to lose a game at home in all competitions thus far this season. Their four defeats at the home grounds of Borussia Dortmund, Hoffenheim, Atletico Madrid, and arguably the most shocking one of all, Russian outfit Rostov.

All in all, that does not bode well for Real Madrid and their legions of fans ahead of this week's Champions League titanic tussle!

In any case, this is exactly how strong the Bavarian titans have been on home turf:

3. In some esteemed company...

Franck Ribery was one of the goalscorers as Bayern routed Dortmund in an entertaining Klassiker clash, and the Frenchman, who is the highest scoring French player in Bundesliga history, now finds himself in esteemed company:

Ribery, who was nominated for the 2013 Ballon d'Or due to his impressive form for Bayern as they won a Treble, added a goal to his growing tally this weekend

4. ...and he's also not too bad in the assists category, either:

5. Super Mario enjoying his renaissance

Mario Gomez has truly found his form again. The veteran striker seems to be enjoying his football, and has chipped in with 13 goals - which is nearly 50 per cent of Wolfsburg's total. And although his team have lost their last two games, Gomez is still scoring:

How the battle for the Torjägerkanone is shaping up

Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang has slipped into second after failing to make an impact in Der Klassiker, whilst Koln's Anthony Modeste still has not given up hope at getting his hands on the coveted Torjägerkanone:
