Official Fantasy Bundesliga Team of the Week: Matchday 30

There were two names you absolutely had to have on your Official Fantasy Bundesliga teamsheet for Matchday 30, and if you did pick Bremen’s Max Kruse and Frankfurt’s Marco Fabian, you will need a suitcase for all those points.

Kruse’s four goals and Fabian’s all-round contribution to Frankfurt’s cause made them the stand-out performers of the round, but they were not the only ones who would have made a contribution to your tally…if only you had picked them!

Goalkeeper
Rune Jarstein (Hertha) 10 points
The Norwegian shot-stopper has been one of the most consistent Fantasy performers this season, and helping Hertha to a tenth clean sheet of the season went a long way to taking his Matchday 30 tally into double figures.

Defenders
Raphael Guerreiro (Dortmund) 13 points
The BVB full-back turned in a performance that made him a BLMVP candidate for Matchday 30. Though defensively the Portugal international did not enjoy his best day, he more than offset the two goals his team conceded against Mönchengladbach with the decisive strike — and his maiden headed goal in the Bundesliga — at the opposite end.

Aytac Sulu (Darmstadt) 14 points
Like Guerreiro, Sulu really made his presence felt at the opposite end of the pitch. His combative character won him 60 percent of his challenges and earned you three points, but his goal claimed a further six for your team.

Caglar Söyüncü (Freiburg) 12 points
Freiburg’s winning effort against Leverkusen was built on the rock that was Söyüncü. Successful in a whopping 17 of his 20 challenges against Die Werkself, he picked up nine points for ‘Duels won’ alone.

Jeffrey Gouweleeuw (Augsburg) 13 points
The Augsburg defender ended up on the losing side, which took some of the shine and the points off a tally boosted by his second Bundesliga goal.

Midfielders
Arjen Robben (Bayern) 16 points
His team might have stumbled against Mainz, but Robben was his consistently productive self, teeing up both goals to earn you a Bavarian beer hall load of points.

Marco Fabian (Frankfurt) 23 points
The Mexico star’s two goals — his first Bundesliga brace — brought you nine precious points, but his six points for the challenges he won were an unexpected bonus for those of you who showed faith in the Frankfurt midfielder.

Jerome Gondorf (Darmstadt) 13 points
The midfielder was the perfect blend of creativity and destruction as he teed up his team’s second goal and won a game-high 15 challenges, earning his Official Fantasy Bundesliga manager a further six points.

Forwards
Max Kruse (Bremen) 23 points
The first man to score four in a game for Bremen since February 1986, Kruse’s haul not only netted you a bucketload of points, but also took him onto a personal best 13 for the season.

Vedad Ibisevic (Hertha) 13 points
While Jarstein kept Wolfsburg out, Ibisevic did the damage at the other end, finding the net to secure his side all three points and you a handsome haul.

Ante Rebic (Frankfurt) 13 points
Four points for ‘duels won’, three for his goal and a further trio for his seven goal attempts, you can have little complaint about the full shift put in by the Frankfurt man during his 90 minutes in the office.
