20-10 shots, 57% possession – the match data is clearly in Borussia Dortmund’s favour, as are the xG scores (5.0 versus 1.7). The match facts.

A force at home: Borussia Dortmund have won each of their last 10 Bundesliga home games and extended the record for within one season.

Number 1 in 2023: BVB are the best team in the second half-season and have picked up 33 points from 14 games in the second half of the campaign – already more than in the entire first half-season (31).

Thrashing: The last win by such a high margin came against Mönchengladbach on Matchday 23 in 2021/22.

Mr. Perfect: Niklas Süle delivered 98% of his passes to a team-mate and won 100% of his challenges.
