An emphatic 5-0 victory over Hertha Berlin provided Bayern Munich with the best result possible heading into the September international break. Robert Lewandowski was the star of the match as he led the way with a hat-trick performance. Other goalscorers included Jamal Musiala and Thomas Muller.

The victory sees Bayern remain unbeaten in the Bundesliga as they will face the biggest test of the early season on Matchday Four against RB Leipzig. Here are five key stats from Saturday’s match.

Lewandowski’s incredible form against Hertha continues

Lewandowski has now scored ten goals in his last five appearances against Hertha. Seven of those ten goals have come from two performances which include Saturday’s hat-trick. During the 2020/21 season, he recorded four goals against Hertha in a memorable 4-3 victory at the Allianz Arena. Although Saturday’s match was less dramatic than that 4-3 victory last season, it was still a fantastic performance from the world’s best striker.

Manuel Neuer’s historic clean sheet

The first clean sheet of the Bundesliga season for Neuer also happens to be a historic one as well. Saturday was his 205th career clean sheet in the Bundesliga which is now the most all-time in the history of the German top-flight. He surpasses another Bayern legend Oliver Kahn who was tied with Neuer entering this match.

Over 300 goals for Lewandowski at Bayern

The three goals scored by Lewandowski allowed him to move past the 300 goal mark at Die Roten. It was only a matter of time until Lewandowski reached the 300 goal mark for Rekordmeister. He entered the match at 298 careers goals for Die Roten but left the pitch at 301 goals. That number will of course grow as the season continues.

Musiala scores his seventh career Bundesliga goal

According to OptaFranz, Musiala and Florian Wirtz have both reached seven career Bundesliga goals. They are the youngest players in league history to reach this mark. Both players scored on Matchday Three for their respective clubs. The German duo represents the future of the Bundesliga and perhaps one day they could be playing alongside one another for both club and country.

Consistency for Lewandowski

For the 13th consecutive Bundesliga match, Lewandowski found the back of the net. The last time he failed to score in the German top flight was against Hertha on Matchday 20 of the 2020/21 season when he had a penalty kick saved. Since then, the Polish striker has been the definition of consistency with 22 goals recorded during this 13 match scoring streak.
