Here are our Fantasy Bundesliga tips for matchday 13.
|Eintracht Frankfurt fans.|
If you haven't already invested in Sebastien Haller, then it's perhaps time to do so. The striker has scored in each of his last five Bundesliga games, and impressively, he is currently both the league's top scorer with nine goals and the top assist-maker with six assists.
In addition to that, he plays for a very good team. After thrashing Olympique Marseille 4-0 on Thursday, Frankfurt have won 10 out of their last 11 games in all tournaments. Their fixture list doesn't look too bad either, with games against Wolfsburg, Hertha, Leverkusen and Mainz coming up. Another great option is Haller's striking partner Luka Jovic (striker, 10.4M) who is also in stunning form.
Arjen Robben (Bayern München), midfielder - 14.4M
Bayern München have struggled for a while, but returned to winning ways in the Champions League with a convincing 5-1 win over Benfica in midweek. Of course, that doesn't mean that the Bavarian club's crisis is over, but the win has most likely given Kovac and his players a well-needed confidence boost. Arjen Robben was particularly impressive in midweek and scored two trademark goals in the first half to give Bayern a 2-0 lead.
Looking at Bayern's three upcoming Bundesliga fixtures (Werder Bremen (A), FC Nürnberg (H), Hannover 96 (A)), it may be worth giving the experienced Dutchman a shot in your team. Bayern's opponents on Saturday, Werder Bremen, have fallen into a slump after a strong start to the season. The Green-Whites have lost three out of their last four Bundesliga games and were lucky to get a point out of last weekend's game with Freiburg. Another option to consider from Bayern is Robert Lewandowski (striker, 19.6M). The Polish international is expensive, but has the potential to earn your team a lot of points over the coming matchdays.
Kerem Demirbay (Hoffenheim), midfielder - 11.6M
We have previously recommended bringing in the Hoffenheim midfielder, and he remains a great option. Hoffenheim are scoring a lot of goals, and Demirbay is arguably their most important player, pulling the strings in midfield while he is also responsible for most of their set pieces.
Last weekend, Demirbay scored and got an assist against Hertha, and he was once again among Hoffenheim's best players in the 2-3 defeat to Shakhtar Donetsk in midweek. Ahead of a game against an injury-plagued Schalke side, who are still not up to last season's standards, the 25-year-old looks like a solid investment.
