• If Bayern beat BATE they will set a new club record of ten successive wins at the start of a season.

• Pizarro made his 337th Bundesliga appearance in the 3-0 win against Wolfsburg on 25 September, a record for a foreign player in the German top flight. He is already the division's 160-goal top foreign scorer.

• Thomas Müller was not included in the squad to face Wolfsburg due to flu, ending his run of 106 consecutive Bundesliga games for Bayern that had started on the opening day of the 2009/10 campaign.

• Including that match, Bayern have won all nine of their fixtures this season. Their run of six straight Bundesliga victories at the start of the season is one short of the league record, set by the Munich club in 1995/96 and equalled by 1. FC Kaiserslautern in 2001/02 and FSV Mainz 05 in 2010/11.

• Raeder (knee), Mario Gomez (ankle), Diego Contento and David Alaba (both foot) are yet to play this term.
