By Rune Gjerulff @runegjerulff
Fortuna Düsseldorf's Dodi Lukebakio is in our team of the week after his hattrick in the 3-3 draw with Bayern München.
|Fortuna Düsseldorf got a point against Bayern München thanks to a Dodi Lukebakio hattrick.|
Goalkeeper: Jiri Pavlenka, Werder Bremen
Made a string of wonderful saves in Werder Bremen's 1-1 draw with SC Freiburg.
Right-back: Daniel Caligiuri, Schalke 04
The right wing-back was very involved offensively against FC Nürnberg in which he set up three goals.
Centre-back: Dan-Axel Zagadou, Borussia Dortmund
Rock solid at the back for Dortmund. Made several good interceptions and completed 91 percent of his passes. Nearly scored at the beginning of the match, too.
Centre-back: Makoto Hasebe, Eintracht Frankfurt (2)
Was extremely often on the ball and distributed it well. Made many great interceptions and won most of his duels.
Left-back: Jerome Roussillon, Wolfsburg (3)
Roussillon has been among Wolfsburg's best players this season, and he delivered another strong performance in the 1-0 win over RB Leipzig as he earned his side a win with his first Bundesliga goal.
Central midfielder: Jonathan de Guzman, Eintracht Frankfurt (2)
The 31-year-old has emerged as a key player under Adi Hütter. In Saturday's 3-1 win over Augsburg, he was safe and clever on the ball as always and even got on the scoresheet.
Right midfielder: Thomas Müller, Bayern München (3)
Thomas Müller can't be blamed for Bayern München's disappointing 3-3 draw with Fortuna Düsseldorf. The German international did well to grab two goals before the guests made a comeback towards the end.
Offensive midfielder: Kai Havertz, Bayer Leverkusen (2)
The promising youngster has been playing at a constant high level this season. With his calmness and cleverness, Havertz pulled the strings in Friday's 2-0 win over Stuttgart and provided the assist for Kevin Volland's opener.
Left midfielder: Thorgan Hazard, Gladbach (4)
The Belgium international is enjoying his most impressive season at Gladbach yet. He shined once again with a goal and an assist in Sunday's 4-1 win over Hannover 96.
Striker: Sebastien Haller, Eintracht Frankfurt (3)
Haller delivered another top-notch performance in the 3-1 win over FC Augsburg in which he scored and made an assist. Impressively, Haller is now both the Bundesliga's top scorer with nine goals and the league's top assist maker with six assists.
Striker: Dodi Lukebakio, Fortuna Düsseldorf
Used his pace well and showed some clinical finishing as he grabbed a hattrick in the 3-3 draw with Bayern München.
