SV Werder Bremen’s Theodor Gebre Selassie was the highest Official Fantasy Bundesliga point-scorer on Matchday 27, but who else joined him in this week’s dream team?
Roman Bürki (Borussia Dortmund, 12 points)
Switzerland international Bürki was a calming presence for Borussia in their 3-0 win against Hamburg, saving all six efforts on his goal to keep an eighth clean sheet of the season.
Theodor Gebre Selassie (SV Werder Bremen, 23 points)
The Czech right-back played his part in a sixth league win in seven by helping preserve Bremen’s clean sheet and by scoring his third goal of the season. What more do you want from a defender?
Nico Elvedi (Borussia Mönchengladbach, 18 points)
Another defender with a clean sheet to his name, Elvedi also won 72 per cent of his challenges, equivalent to a match-leading 21 successful duels. His application meant Hertha Berlin rarely looked like scoring at the BORUSSIA-Park.

Frederik Sörensen (Cologne, 15 points)
The Dane played the full 90 minutes as Cologne bounced back from defeat to Hamburg last weekend to see off Eintracht Frankfurt, with the 24-year-old winning more tackles in the game (18) than any other player on the pitch.
Lukas Klünter (Cologne, 15 points)
Alongside Sörensen, 20-year-old Klünter also played his part in Cologne moving up to fifth in the table. The right-back won a higher percentage of his challenges (73) than any of his team-mates, and the clean sheet means it was just about the perfect Bundesliga debut for him.
Almog Cohen (Ingolstadt, 17 points)
Ingolstadt may be second from bottom but they will not be relegated without a fight, and Cohen appears to be leading their resistance. He scored twice in Wednesday’s crucial win at third-bottom FC Augsburg – he now has six for the season – and the goals were his first ever brace in professional football.

Shinji Kagawa (Borussia Dortmund, 13 points)
Kagawa picked a good time to score his first goal of the season against Hamburg on Tuesday. He also assisted the third goal for Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang and won the free-kick that led to Dortmund’s opener. With three assists in his last four matches, goalmania appears to be bringing the best out of the Japan international.
Julian Brandt (Bayer Leverkusen, 14 points)
Darmstadt must be sick of the sight of Brandt. He hadn’t scored since Leipzig at home in mid-December but, as has become his habit, he notched against Darmstadt for the third match in a row. Kudos if you picked him, and why not stick with him for Matchday 28? He’s due to face Leipzig again.
Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang (Borussia Dortmund, 14 points)
The Gabon international is a points guarantee in Official Fantasy Bundesliga. He scored his 25th league goal of the season – equalling his tally from last term with some seven matches remaining – and assisted for Kagawa to double Dortmund’s lead against HSV.
Max Kruse (SV Werder Bremen, 13 points)
Like Kagawa, Kruse has also been on fire since the international break ended. Against Schalke he netted his 50th Bundesliga goal, and he provided the assist to make it 3-0. He now has a goal and an assist in each of his last two appearances, so you’d be silly to leave him out of your team for Frankfurt away on Matchday 28.
Yussuf Poulsen (Leipzig, 13 points)
Poulsen made the most of his first league start in two months, winning 15 challenges and laying on a goal in the 3-2 win at Mainz.
