Bayern had 59 percent possession in the first half, but Borussia Dortmund saw more of the ball after the break (60 percent). The 3-1 scoreline aside, the hosts outperformed their visitors in almost every key statistic.

Paradoxical: The losers had more shots (15-10) and corners (4-3), winning the majority of the challenges (51 percent) and boasting the better pass completion rate (86 percent/85 percent). They had more chances too (8-6). Possession was even with 50 percent each.

Half-time lead: The last time Bayern led 2-0 in Dortmund at the break was two decades ago. In that meeting, in 1997, the score remained 2-0 until full-time.

Landmarks: Ömer Toprak was making his 200th Bundesliga appearance, while Roman Bürki was making his 100th competitive appearance for the club.

Experienced hands: The BVB starting XI had 1,463 Bundesliga appearances between them, while Bayern Munich's had 1,464.

Newcomers: Yarmolenko, Toprak and James all featured in the Klassiker for the first time, with the other 19 starters having all been involved before.

Danger man: As a Bayern player, Arjen Robben has scored 11 times in 19 competitive matches against BVB. The only other club he has netted against so often is Wolfsburg (also 11). In the Bundesliga, he has scored five goals in 11 meetings with Borussia Dortmund.

Unbeaten boss: Jupp Heynckes has now avoided defeat in each of his last 29 Bundesliga matches as a coach (25 wins, four draws). Twenty of the last 21 have ended in victory.
