Fantasy Bundesliga: Matchday 14 Team of the Week

Bayern Munich’s return to form with a 5-0 hammering of VfL Wolfsburg sees them dominate the forward line of the Official Fantasy Bundesliga Matchday 14 Team of the Week.

Yann Sommer (Borussia Mönchengladbach 11pts)

A steady, calming influence at the back while Gladbach fought for a first win in eight games, Sommer thwarted 1. FSV Mainz 05’s attacks when he needed to and earned five extra points for keeping a clean sheet – his first since a goalless draw with Eintracht Frankfurt on Matchday 9.

Tony Jantschke (Borussia Mönchengladbach 14)

Another key component in Gladbach’s gritty win, Jantschke impressed by leading the Foals’ count of challenges won with 16 and had the most touches – 86 – of anyone on the pitch at BORUSSIA-PARK on Sunday.

Benjamin Hübner (TSG 1899 Hoffenheim 14)
Hoffenheim’s draw with Eintracht Frankfurt was an entertaining affair but the defences held sway, and Hübner was integral to this. He won 18 challenges and had 77 touches in all, showing why he has become an ever-present in Julian Nagelsmann’s backline since making his debut against old side FC Ingolstadt 04 on Matchday 6.

Andreas Christensen (Borussia Mönchengladbach 19)
Gladbach’s Danish defender had an outstanding day against Mainz, excelling in his primary role but also pouncing for what turned out to be the only goal in the Foals’ 1-0 win. His 19 points made him comfortably the most successful Official Fantasy Bundesliga player of Matchday 14.

Matthias Ostrzolek (Hamburger SV 15)
Ostrzolek led the way against FC Augsburg in helping Hamburg record a second win in a row to move out of the Bundesliga’s bottom two. The 26-year-old won a match-best 15 challenges and had 56 touches, and at just 8.35M he would represent real value as an addition to your Official Fantasy Bundesliga squad.

Arjen Robben (FC Bayern München 13)

The week’s leading Official Fantasy Bundesliga midfielder, Robben scored for the fifth time in nine outings with a brilliant goal against VfL Wolfsburg, curling the ball in from the edge of the area to kick-start Bayern’s 5-0 rout.

Roger (FC Ingolstadt 10)
The Brazilian’s deft header that proved to be the winner against RB Leipzig was only part of the story for the 31-year-old. He completed 12 passes, the second-highest total for Ingolstadt, and proved that at 10M he could be a valuable member of an Official Fantasy Bundesliga midfield without breaking the bank.

Marco Reus (Borussia Dortmund 10)
If Official Fantasy Bundesliga managers were not sure about picking Reus on his return from injury despite his place in the Matchday 13 Team of the Week, perhaps his inclusion this week will persuade them? He grabbed the last-gasp equaliser against 1. FC Köln, had three shots on goal and his 33 sprints was the game’s best total.

Thomas Müller (FC Bayern München 12)
Müller finally ended his 999-minute goal scoring drought as part of Bayern’s 5-0 win over Wolfsburg, but when it comes to assists the Germany international has been in good form, and he made his fifth of the campaign when setting up Robert Lewandowski.

Stefan Kießling (Bayer 04 Leverkusen 15)

Kießling’s first goal of the season gave Leverkusen a dramatic last-minute win over FC Schalke, but the 32-year-old put himself about so much that the 17 challenges he won earned him six of his excellent total of 15 Official Fantasy Bundesliga points, making him this week’s leading forward.

Robert Lewandowski (FC Bayern München 13)
Bayern’s Polish star striker bagged goals 10 and 11 for the season, but added to his Official Fantasy Bundesliga points tally for Matchday 14 with five shots on goal. His season points average is 10, level only with Anthony Modeste.
