Bayern Munich picked up a massive three points away from home in Wolfsburg. After three first-half goals, the visitors held on to their advantage to outlast Wolfsburg and regain their seven-point advantage over RB Leipzig in the Bundesliga table.

The 3-2 victory certainly puts Die Roten a step closer to clinching another title in the German top flight. Here are three key stats from Saturday’s match.

Wolfsburg suffer their first home defeat

One of the storylines to watch for entering this match was Wolfsburg’s strong home record in the Bundesliga. They had yet to suffer a defeat at the Volkswagen Arena this season and Bayern provided one of the final home tests of the campaign for Wolfsburg at home. In the end, Die Roten were able to hand Wolfsburg their first home loss of the season.

Wolfsburg’s impressive home record is one of the reasons why Saturday’s victory was a massive result as this match certainly could have been a fixture where Bayern dropped points. They were able to achieve something no other Bundesliga club has been able to do so far this season and it will likely go down as a pivotal moment in the title race.

Jamal Musiala sets a new goal-scoring record

Musiala’s brace was an instrumental part of Bayern’s victory. The two-goal performance from Musiala increased his season goal total in the Bundesliga to six goals. According to OptaFranz, the 18-year-old has now become the youngest player in league history to score six goals.

This statistical achievement shows what a special player Musiala is and speaks to the potential he has for being a future star player at Bayern. There are surely going to be many more multi-goal performances to come from the young talent in the years to come.

Thomas Muller continues to produce assists

Muller’s impressive assist total in the Bundesliga continues to grow. After providing the assist on Musiala’s second goal of the match, he has now recorded eight assists in his last eight league appearances. With 17 total assists in the German top flight this season, he’s nearing his impressive 21 assist total from last season’s campaign.
