Most in form players to watch in the Bundesliga right now

The Bundesliga has always served as a breeding ground for the most promising talent in global football, and the current Bundesliga teams are filled with exceptionally skilled players who are already having a significant impression on the 2023/24 season. examines the current top-performing players in the historic European league as the second half of the 2024 season resumes post-winter break.

Harry Kane

Bayern Munich

I never believed an Englishman would be topping our list for the most in-form players to watch in the German top flight, but here we are. England’s highest-scoring player of all time transferred to the Bundesliga and Bayern in the latter part of last summer to create a significant impression in a different footballing environment. Approximately four months after reaching an agreement on a contract that extends until June 2027 at the Allianz Arena, neither the player nor his club could have predicted the seamless integration of the former Tottenham Hotspur striker into his new environment.

Kane has exhibited exceptional qualities and has become a remarkable phenomenon. He has scored 21 goals at the highest level of competition, including three instances of scoring three goals in a single game (hat tricks) and three instances of scoring two goals in a single match (braces). In addition to his remarkable number of goals over the latter months of 2023, Kane has demonstrated his selflessness by providing five assists, resulting in 26 goal involvements in only 16 Bundesliga matches.

The recent acquisition from Tottenham has seen Kane become the first player to score at least 21 goals in his initial 15 matches in the Bundesliga.

Robert Lewandowski achieved a remarkable feat by scoring an unprecedented 41 goals in the Bundesliga during the 2020-21 season for Bayern. At the 15-game mark, he had already accumulated 20 goals.

Kane has netted a total of 38 goals in the league during the year 2023, surpassing Kylian Mbappe by four goals in the top five European leagues, taking into account his performance in the latter part of the previous season with Tottenham.

Florian Wirtz

Bayer Leverkusen 

Following his anterior cruciate ligament injury in spring 2022, it took him considerable time to fully heal and regain his peak performance. The recovery process lasted for ten months, and additional time was needed to attain his optimal condition. Currently, Wirtz displays the exceptional talent he had always shown potential for, serving as the focal point of Xabi Alonso’s Leverkusen squad. He is given the freedom to drop back and collect the ball, allowing him to dribble as he pleases.

His performance in terms of goals and assists has significantly improved. However, quantifying his exceptional skill just by numerical statistics seems inadequate. His contributions have made his side the top-performing in the Bundesliga during the latter half of 2023 and the most exhilarating to watch.

Leroy Sane

Bayern Munich

The German winger is now experiencing his most exceptional season since departing from Manchester City. He has scored eight goals and provided six assists in the Bundesliga, establishing a remarkable connection with Harry Kane, the leading scorer in European football.

“It is crucial for our style of play to have a genuine No.9,” Sane stated earlier this season.

“However, Harry also retreats to a deeper position to facilitate effective rotation.” I absolutely like transitioning from the attacking midfield position to the forward position with speed. This tactical approach has proven successful on several occasions alongside Harry, and with further match experience and training sessions, it has the potential to improve further.

Sane also has a good ranking in terms of chances created and successful dribbles. The overall statistics he has achieved are extraordinary.

Lois Openda

RB Leipzig

According to current Bundesliga football reports, Manchester United has expressed interest in acquiring the services of the RB Leipzig attacker in the upcoming year. Considering his exceptional performance throughout 2023, it is not unexpected to understand the reasons behind it.

For Bundesliga fans interested in sports wagering, Openda has been an excellent anytime goalscorer selection. When you explore UK betting options online, you’ll often find greater odds on this Leipzig star man as he flies under the oddsmaker’s radar in comparison to the league’s alternative top scorers. 

Openda has netted 15 goals since his transfer to RB Leipzig over the summer, placing him on par with the leading strikers in Europe. He has played a vital role in helping the side secure a spot in the Champions League last sixteen and contributing to the team’s current pursuit of the Bundesliga crown, with a five-point gap separating them from second-placed Bayern Munich.

Serhou Guirassy

VfB Stuttgart 

After securing their position in the Bundesliga with a relegation/promotion play-off win over Hamburg in June, the Swabians approached this season’s campaign with revitalised determination. Propelled by the achievements of the remarkable Serhou Guirassy, the team led by Sebastian Hoeneß has had their greatest start to the 2023/24 season. Guirassy, the striker from Guinea, scored 14 goals in his first eight Bundesliga matches, establishing a new record in Germany’s premier league.

Guirassy concluded the initial 16 matches of the Bundesliga with 17 goals, surpassing Niclas Füllkrug and Christopher Nkunku, who tied as the highest scorers in the league the previous season. The 27-year-old is second only to Harry Kane in the current rankings. With 11 victories, Stuttgart ended the pre-winter break in third place, 13 positions and 18 points ahead compared to the same period last season.

Victor Boniface

Bayer Leverkusen

The league leaders’ offence has showcased an impressive exhibition of youthful energy with the formidable presence of their new striker, Victor Boniface. The Nigerian player showed exceptional performance in the initial weeks of the season, scoring two goals in three separate matches out of his first five outings. Although the 22-year-old’s goal-scoring rate has decreased, it is undeniable that his performance at the beginning of the season has been quite successful.

Victor has netted five goals, provided seven assists in the first 12 matches, and has successfully garnered more shots than any other player Bundesliga player this season (65) thus far.
