The weekend saw a new record established.

The Bundesliga Matchday 13 was all about smashing records and Bayern returning to the top of the table. Matchday 13 was a tense week with a change in the table, and Bayern Munich deservedly won their game, putting them top in the league. While we have a new young talent creating a new record, and this is the second-to-last match week before we fly to the World Cup.

After analysing Matchday 13, we identified the key talking points of how the games transpired and have listed them below.

Bayern scrapes through a 3-2 win

Bayern Munich travelled to Hertha Berlin with a mission to finish first before the World Cup, and they deservingly won the match after labouring to a 3-2 win. They started the game well, with Jamal Musiala finding the net before in-form Eric Maxim Choupo-Moting registered a brace at half-time. It seemed the match was over, but Hertha Berlin scored two goals in five minutes, although it was not enough as Bayern Munich got hold of the match and were lucky to not concede last minute goal, as they returned to summit of the league.

Union Berlin suffers the heaviest defeat of the season

For a brief while, it appeared that Union Berlin would retain their form and remain first in the table until they faced a strong opponent and were thrashed 5-0 by Bayern Leverkusen. Union Berlin were overpowered in this game and were unable to cope with Leverkusen's intensity; it remains to be seen how they will do against bigger clubs. They must raise their game if they are to finish in the top four.

Youssoufa Moukoko makes history for Dortmund

Youssoufa Moukoko was the match's star, scoring twice to lead Dortmund to a 3-0 victory over VFL Bochum, with another goal coming from Giovanni Reyna. Moukoko is now the youngest player in Bundesliga history to have scored 10 goals. Dortmund have also moved to fourth place and appear to be in fine shape after a poor showing in the Champions League.

This season, Moukoko appears ambitious, and Marco Reus has returned from injury. Dortmund are finally getting into gear and with a slew of young players making their mark, the club should be viewed as a title contender this season.

SC Freiburg overtakes Union Berlin in the top four 

Freiburg are now second in the table, one point behind Bayern Munich, following their victory over FC Koln. Since losing to Bayern Munich in October, the club has gone six games unblemished in all competitions. It may be too early to declare them a title contender, but if they preserve this form, we might have at least 2-3 clubs vying for the title this season.

Nkunku moves up to the top-spot in the top-scorer list

Christopher Nkunku now has 11 goals in the Bundesliga, one more than Niclas Fullkrug, following a brace against Hoffenheim in RB Leipzig's 3-1 victory. With Werner's absence due to an ankle injury, all eyes will be on Nkunku, and the player does not appear to be slowing down, with RB Leipzig surging to the sixth position in the table.
