The Black & Yellows had 18 efforts on goal. Ron-Robert Zieler made a total of five saves - but still conceded three goals. Borussia Dortmund's 3-1 win over VfB Stuttgart meant their impressive run of home results continued.

A successful season: Borussia Dortmund have already racked up 57 points this season, two more than they managed over the entirety of the 2017/18 Bundesliga season.


Home run continued: Borussia Dortmund remain unbeaten in the league under Lucien Favre, with 11 wins and two draws. If only home results were counted, Borussia Dortmund would be way out in front with 35 points.

Second place: Despite the win, Borussia surrendered top spot in the league to Bayern Munich. This means the Black & Yellows don't occupy first place for the first time since Matchday 5 at the end of September.

Vital goal: 47 of the 113 goals Marco Reus has scored in the Bundesliga have given his side a 1-0 lead. Today's goal was his 14th of the season - meaning he's scored more so far this season than he managed over the course of the previous two seasons combined.

Eye for goal: Like Reus, Paco Alcácer also bagged his 14th goal of the Bundesliga season. His five shots on goals were the most of any player in today's match.

Assist master: Jadon Sancho set up a goal for the 15th time this season. Since this statistic was first recorded in 1992/93, no Dortmund player has provided as many assists 25 matches into a Bundesliga campaign. 

Super sub: Christian Pulisic scored to make it 3-1: 16 of BVB's goals in the Bundesliga have been scored by substitutes, more than any other team. Today was the first time the American has been involved in a goal since the reverse fixture earlier in the season. Today he managed to get both a goal and an assist!

Late goals: 17 goals scored in the last 15 minutes: another statistic in which BVB are league leaders!

Attack-minded BVB: Paco Alcacer, Marco Reus and Mario Götze all started a Bundesliga match for the first time.

Debut: Leonardo Balerdi was named in a Bundesliga matchday squad for the first time.

Fair-play first-half: Only one foul was committed in the entirety of the first-half - the lowest number in the first-half of a Bundesliga match since records began in 1992/93.

Efficient: Stuttgart's only effort on target in the match found the back of the net.
