Here are our Fantasy Bundesliga tips for matchday 10.
The Icelandic international has been on fire since returning from injury, scoring five goals in four Bundesliga games this season. Finnbogason, who scored a hattrick against Freiburg at the end of September, is the club's penalty taker and looks a tasty option with a home game against FC Nürnberg coming up. The Bundesliga newcomers have lost their last two away games in the league by 7-0 (versus Dortmund) and 6-0 (versus RB Leipzig) and could have another tough time away from home against Augsburg. Other good options from Augsburg are Andreas Luthe (goalkeeper, 5.9M), Philipp Max (defender, 12.7M) and Michael Gregoritsch (midfielder, 14.5M).
Thorgan Hazard (Borussia Mönchengladbach), striker - 14.8M
After an outstanding start to the season, Borussia Mönchengladbach suffered a surprise defeat last weekend as they lost 1-3 to SC Freiburg, and Dieter Hecking's side lost again on Wednesday evening as Bayer Leverkusen took a crushing 5-0 win at Borussia-Park. Fortunately for Gladbach, they have a great possibility of returning to winning ways on Sunday when they face Fortuna Düsseldorf who have lost their last five Bundesliga games. Thorgan Hazard, who is Gladbach's penalty taker, has score five goals and made three assists in his last six Bundesliga games, and he is likely to add to that tally on Sunday.
Kai Havertz (Bayer Leverkusen), midfielder - 14.1M
With a 6-2 win over Werder Bremen last Sunday and a 5-0 win over Gladbach in midweek, things are starting to look brighter for Bayer Leverkusen who had a very underwhelming start to the season. 19-year-old Kai Havertz has been among the club's most prolific players through the season so far, and the youngster stepped up to score twice in the win over Werder, taking his tally to six goals and five assists in 13 appearances in all tournaments this campaign. On Saturday, Leverkusen will hope to continue their good form when they face a Hoffenheim side who have shown defensive weaknesses this season. Other Leverkusen players you could consider are the in-form Karim Bellarabi (midfielder, 9.4M), who has scored six goals in his last four games, and Kevin Volland (striker, 14M) who has scored twice and made four assists in his last two games.
