Joshua Kimmich’s 11 chances created against Hertha Berlin is the most in a single Bundesliga game since detailed data collection began in 2004/05, report Opta.
Kimmich was influential in Bayern Munich’s 2-0 win that placed them back at the summit of the Bundesliga after Borussia Dortmund dropped points at Bochum on Friday night.
The 28-year-old assisted both Serge Gnabry and Kingsley Coman as Bayern were forced to wait until the 69th minute before being able to breakthrough a resilient Hertha defence.
With four Bundesliga games remaining, that now puts Bayern Munich back in pole position to win their 11th consecutive Bundesliga title with games against Werder Bremen, Schalke, RB Leipzig and Köln still to come.
With just one point separating the top two teams, BVB will be need to win their remaining fixtures and if both teams struggle, as they have been doing, then Union Berlin could yet provide a shock as they sit just six points behind leaders Bayern with four games left.
