Fantasy Bundesliga tips:
10 players to consider for Matchday 25
By Rune Gjerulff @runegjerulff
Here are 10 players you should consider bringing into your Fantasy Bundesliga team for Matchday 25.
Instead, we will highlight players with a maximum ownership percentage of 15%, who could offer great value as differentials for Matchday 25.
Danny da Costa, Frankfurt (Defender, 2.8M, 2%)
So far, it has been a season to forget for da Costa, but the 28-year-old could be worth a punt. He costs just 2.8 million and is in line to start at right wing-back against a Hertha side, who are winless in their last eight games in all competitions. UPDATE: Frankfurt coach Oliver Glasner has revealed that Danny da Costa is a doubt after missing training today.
Ramy Bensebaini, Gladbach (Defender, 10.9M, 3%)
After their embarrassing 6-0 defeat to Borussia Dortmund on Matchday 23, Gladbach came back from a two-goal deficit to earn a 2-2 draw with Wolfsburg last week. 'Die Fohlen' now have a favorable schedule, facing crisis-hit Stuttgart and Hertha in their next two games. Having scored 19 points and 11 points on Matchday 22 and 24 respectively, Bensebaini has recently demonstrated his value as a Fantasy asset, but be aware that he's just one yellow card away from getting suspended and that he might play as a centre-back instead of as a wing-back this weekend, with Marvin Friedrich set to miss out.
Borna Sosa, Stuttgart (Defender, 10.9M, 8%)
If you feel more like backing Stuttgart against Gladbach, Sosa is available at the same price as Bensebaini. Stuttgart are in big problems, but have been a little unlucky lately and now face an intriguing run of games. After missing last week's 2-1 defeat against Hoffenheim, Sosa should come back into the team against Gladbach, and with seven points to his name per game on average, the 24-year-old's return could prove to be a big boost for 'Die Schwaben'.
Gerrit Holtmann, Bochum (Midfielder, 5.8M, 2%)
Holtmann has been a key player for Bochum this season, racking up four goals and six assists in 20 Bundesliga games. With a home game against bottom-placed Greuther Fürth coming up, the 26-year-old could be a great differential.
Patrick Wimmer, Arminia Bielefeld (Midfielder, 6.6M, 5%)
Wimmer was limited to six points last week as Bielefeld were dominated by Bayer Leverkusen, but this week's home clash with Augsburg will be different. The young winger has picked up an impressive nine points per game this season, and we can expect another good return from him, with Bielefeld facing the second worst away side in the league.
Dani Olmo, RB Leipzig (Midfielder, 12.6M, 10%)
Olmo has been in sensational form in recent weeks, having racked up two goals and three assists in his last three Bundesliga games despite only coming on as a substitute in two of them. The Spaniard has been rotated out of the team at times, but this should be less of a concern until the international break, now that Leipzig's Europa League last-16 games against Spartak Moscow have been cancelled.
Jonas Hofmann, Gladbach (Midfielder, 15.7M, 7%)
The German international has been very impressive since his return from injury, picking up 12,4 points per game on average in his last five matches.
Filip Kostic, Frankfurt (Midfielder, 17.6M, 12%)
With the Bayern game out of the game, Kostic is once again an option worth considering. The 29-year-old is expensive, but is usually a very reliable Fantasy asset.
Omar Marmoush, Stuttgart (Striker, 3.7M, 1%)
At just 3.7 million, Marmoush offers good value at a very low price. The forward has taken a respectable 13 points from his last two games, and Stuttgart now have a good run of fixtures.
Alassane Pléa, Gladbach (Striker, 14.9M, 0%)
Pléa was instrumental to Gladbach's comeback against Wolfsburg last week, providing two assists. The performance saw him pick up 22 points, which was only second to Hoffenheim's Christoph Baumgartner's 24-point haul.
