With the decisive 6-0 win over Darmstadt last weekend Dortmund didn't just climb the table in the current Bundesliga season, they did something that happens fairly seldom.

Because of Werder Bremen's 4-1 loss to Gladbach, Borussia Dortmund was able to move past them on the all-time Bundesliga table. Yay!

Looking at this table you might ask yourself how is it possible to move past a team that has more wins and draws? Well the official all-time table that is kept by the DFL takes into account all the actual awarded points. From the start of the Bundesliga in 1963 until 1995 teams would only get two points per win as opposed to the now commonly-used three points.

Due to BVB's relative success since 1995 with 5 Bundesliga titles and many top finishes, especially in recent years the black and yellows were able to surpass teams with more Bundesliga games and wins.

Now there's only one team left, should be pretty easy right? Right...
