By the numbers: Craziest stats from the 2019-20 Bundesliga campaign

Robert Lewandowski’s 34-goal haul was impressive, but there are plenty of other numbers to mull over from the 2019-20 Bundesliga season.

Here, BetaSoccer looks into the best and worst from Germany’s top flight following Saturday’s final day.

3 – Lewandowski has now won three straight top-scorer awards. The Bayern Munich striker’s 34 were the most goals in a single campaign since 1977.

6 – With their defeat on the last day, Fortuna Dusseldorf have now suffered six relegations from the Bundesliga.

12 – No team drew more games than RB Leipzig’s dozen.

17 – Paderborn midfielder Klaus Gjasula was booked 17 times, which represented 41.5% of the yellow cards collected by eighth-place Freiburg.

18.1 – Title-winners Bayern Munich’s 18-plus shots per game was the highest average in the league.

20 – Bayern’s unbeaten streak in the league began Dec. 14 and lasted through Saturday, consisting of 19 wins and one draw.

21 – Thomas Muller broke the record for the most assists in a single Bundesliga campaign, surpassing Kevin De Bruyne’s 20 with Wolfsburg in the 2014-15 term.

22 – Paderborn lost the most matches in the league. The cellar-dwellers have now finished in a relegation or promotion place in each of the last seven seasons.

31.3% – Home teams won just under one-third of their games after the hiatus. That figure was 43.3% before Germany’s top flight was shut down.

33 – Jadon Sancho directly contributed to 33 goals as Borussia Dortmund finished in second place (17 goals and 16 assists).

36.51 km/h – Alphonso Davies registered the top speed in the Bundesliga. Bayern Munich’s Canadian full-back also completed the most take-ons with 83.

39 years – It’s been nearly four decades since a German scored as many goals as Timo Werner (28) did in one Bundesliga campaign. The RB Leipzig frontman will be a Chelsea player next season.

75 – Bayer Leverkusen’s Kai Havertz was dispossessed more than any other Bundesliga player.

118 – Borussia Monchengladbach goalkeeper Yann Sommer made the most saves.

245 – Union Berlin’s Sebastian Andersson won over 100 more aerial duels than Wolfsburg’s Wout Weghorst, who registered the second most with 130.
