BVB's 2-0 win over HSV was the club's 500th home victory in the Bundesliga. Only four other clubs – Bayern, Bremen, Stuttgart and Hamburg – have previously reached this milestone.

Unbeaten run: Borussia Dortmund are now unbeaten in seven Bundesliga matches since Peter Stöger arrived, having taken 15 out of a possible 21 points under the Austrian.

Winning streak: For the first time ever, Borussia Dortmund have recorded five successive league victories over the Red Shorts.

Co-production: BVB's second goal against HSV was the first time Mario Götze and Andre Schürrle, who famously combined for the winner in the 2014 World Cup final, have teamed up to score a league goal. Götze has more Bundesliga goals against Hamburg than any other club (seven).

Back in action: Marco Reus made his comeback 259 days after sustaining a cruciate ligament injury in the DFB Cup final against Frankfurt. No other BVB player created as many shooting opportunities as Reus (four), although the midfielder didn't have a shot himself.

Strong first start: Defender Manuel Akanji won an impressive 75 percent of his challenges on his first start for the club.

Supersub: Mario Götze's goal was the first time a substitute has scored for BVB this season.
