Bundesliga Statistics: Week 1

bundesliga.gifIf you’re anything like me, you love reveling in statistics. While in isolation, especially at the beginning of the Bundesliga season, they don’t reveal much. But as time goes on it should be possible to discern patterns between some of these statistics and how the table shakes out. Here are some of the basic stats, with some omissions (notably shots and shots on goal). Leave your thoughts as to what you’d like to see added (or removed) for future editions of Bundesliga Stats and I’ll be happy to oblige.
