Uli Hesse in Germany

There was a lot of talk about runs and records in the Bundesliga over the past week. Before we concern ourselves with the most obvious ones, it is well worth having a look at a pretty decent run that is not making many headlines. Unfashionable Augsburg - a club so low-key that many fans still can't name more than three regulars, even though the team's been in the top flight for eight months now - have not lost a game at home since early November. That's even more impressive when you consider that their opponents over this span have included top sides like Dortmund and Monchengladbach or up-and-coming teams like Mainz, who were beaten 2-1 on Saturday.
