Borussia Dortmund

Malen has scored in five of the last six games

It was not a thrilling game but it was an intense one. The players covered almost 240 kilometres, split almost evenly across the two teams: 119.9km by Dortmund, 119.8 by the opposition. BVB had significantly more possession (68%) and shots (12-8). The tackle win rate (51% for BVB) was almost even. The match facts.

On a run: Donyell Malen has scored a goal in five of his last six competitive appearances. He had scored twice in the Bundesliga from range, and now has netted from inside the box for the first time.

Fortress Dortmund: BVB have picked up 24 points at home in this Bundesliga season – a league high! There have been eight home wins and a 3-2 defeat to Bayern.

Goal-getter: Erling Haaland scored his 52nd and 53rd goals on his 53rd Bundesliga appearance. He has scored at least twice in 20 of those 53 games. Marco Reus has also scored more than once in 20 games, but he has made 326 appearances.

Another clean sheet: Borussia Dortmund kept a clean sheet for the second time this Bundesliga campaign (previously 2-0 against Cologne).

Dominant: Playing on the evening before his 33rd birthday, Mats Hummels won 18 of his 21 challenges. The only duel he lost in the first half was the one for which he was booked.

Composed from the spot: Borussia have already won six penalties this season (league high) – and converted them all. Last season, only three of BVB’s seven spot-kicks went in directly.
