Matchday 13 – team of the week (4-4-2):
Goalkeeper: Robin Zentner, Mainz
Fortuna Düsseldorf created several big chances against Mainz, particularly towards the end of the match, but Robin Zentner kept out every attempt and helped 'Die Nullfünfer' to take a point.
Right-back: Lukasz Piszczek, Borussia Dortmund
Had a strong game against Freiburg. Hit the bar and later set up Paco Alcacer's 2-0 goal.
Centre-back: Jordan Torunarigha, Hertha BSC
The centre-back was involved in both Hertha's goals and helped his team to keep a clean sheet in the 2-0 win over Hannover 96. Scored the opener from a corner and later assisted Vedad Ibisevic's 2-0 goal with a fine cross.
Centre-back: Dayot Upamecano, RB Leipzig
The fast and strong defender played a key part as RB Leipzig kept the dangerous Gladbach offense on a short leash in their 2-0 win on Sunday.
Left-back: Achraf Hakimi, Borussia Dortmund (3)
The Real Madrid loanee just keeps impressing. Was rock solid defensively in the 2-0 win over Freiburg and also did well to come forward as always.
Right midfielder: Serge Gnabry, Bayern München (2)
Gnabry is starting to prove his worth for Bayern. Scored a brace and made a lot of clever runs in the 2-1 win over Werder Bremen.
Central midfielder: Joshua Kimmich, Bayern München (2)
Niko Kovac's decision to move Kimmich to midfield has done Bayern wonders. Organized and controlled the game against Werder Bremen for the Bavarians.
Central midfielder: Marko Grujic, Hertha BSC
Put in a strong performance against Hannover 96. Worked hard both ways and nearly scored his first goal for Hertha after a great run.
Left midfielder: Steven Zuber, Hoffenheim
The Swiss international was on the ball a lot in the 1-1 draw with Schalke. He was unlucky to see his excellent long shot hit the bar.
Striker: Timo Werner, RB Leipzig (4)
The quick forward scored his fourth Bundesliga brace of the season in RB Leipzig's impressive 2-0 win over Gladbach.
Striker: Daniel Ginczek, VfL Wolfsburg
The striker was the man of the match in Wolfsburg's surprising 2-1 win over Eintracht Frankfurt in which he scored and made an assist.
