This week in the Bundesliga we saw more twists in the race for top spot, teams gaining their first wins of the season and plenty of goals scored once again. Here is GGFN’s team of the week for round six.
Goalkeeper: Kevin Müller
Crucial in Heidenheim’s win over Union Berlin as he pulled off eight saves and gained himself a well-earned clean sheet.
Right Back: Julian Ryerson
Sealed the game for Borussia Dortmund with a sensational run from his own half and a cool finish through Oliver Baumann’s legs. Was aggressive and provided some important defensive contributions for his team.
Centre Back: Maximilian Wöber
An all round solid defensive display, making nine clearances including a clearance off the line and also provided an assist for Alassane Plea’s first goal.
Centre Back: Philipp Lienhart
Gave Freiburg a comfortable 2-0 lead with a thumping header at the near post and showcased a calm display in defence by making three clearances and wasn’t dribbled past the whole game.
Left back: Alejandro Grimaldo
Produced another pin-point accurate free-kick into the top corner to seal the game for Bayer Leverkusen and was an attacking threat once again throughout.
Left Midfield: Chris Führich
Yet another appearance in the team of the week after another impressive performance in a high flying and free scoring Stuttgart team. Skipped past his defender and pulled the ball back for Deniz Undav to score his Bundesliga goal.
Centre Midfield: Maximilian Arnold
Was important to Wolfsburg keeping a clean sheet and was the instigator for many attacks as he provided five key passes and was accurate in his passing.
Centre Midfield: Marvin Mehlem
Was very busy in the midfield and even provided a goal and assist to help Darmstadt win their first match of the season. Up to three goals already this season and has been a consistent performer so far.
Right Midfield: Matthias Bader
With one goal and an assist, he caused many problems for the Werder Bremen defence. A nicely placed volley into the bottom corner put his team ahead and then a threaded pass through to Mehlem to score wrapped the game up.
Striker: Jonas Wind
Another two goals for Wind who has now broken a record by being the first Wolfsburg player to score six goals in six games for the club. He then further extended his record after his first goal by following in the rebound of his penalty which was initially saved by Kevin Trapp.
Striker: Alassane Pléa
Two goals and an assist for Pléa, with his first goal being his 50th competitive goal for Borussia Mönchengladbach and they simply wouldn’t have won the game without him.
