Dortmund triumph against Leipzig
Borussia Dortmund won in a closely fought 3-2 match against Leipzig last weekend, with Jadon Sancho, MID (21.7M, 21) scoring a brace. Raphael Guerreiro, DEF (18M, 20) also had a huge game, while Marco Reus, FOR (19.8M- 16) scored as well. On the Leipzig side, Dani Olmo, MID (19.5M, 18) had a fine game as well, with his usual partner Christopher Nkunku out with a back injury. Dortmund face Leipzig again in the DFB-Pokal final this Thursday, and there is an added advantage of these two teams being the only teams having late fixtures for the upcoming matchday, meaning that it is vital to have a few players from these teams so that there is some flexibility in the team.



Bayern unstoppable as Lewandowski gets closer to record
Bayern Muünchen thrashed Gladbach in a 6-0 win that saw Robert Lewandowski score a hat-trick to be the joint highest scorer of the matchday with 32 points. Having secured the title already, Bayern should be playing the remaining two games with ease and aiming to let Lewandowski have more goals. Thomas Muller, FOR (24.1M, 15) and Joshua Kimmich, MID (20.4M, 10) are decent options in the remaining games, Bayern face Freiburg (A) and Augsburg (H) in the final 2 matches, and it could be wise to get out players from those teams.


Kramaric and Baumgartner shine as Hoffenheim comeback against Schalke
Having gone 2-0 down in the first half against Schalke, Hoffenheim ended up winning 4-2 in a game that saw the two main attackers of Hoffenheim, Andrej Kramaric, FOR (18.9, 23) and Christoph Baumgartner, MID (13.7M, 21) get huge attacking returns. Hoffenheim face Bielefeld (A) followed by Hertha Berlin (H) in the last two games, and the attacking potential of this duo could continue.



Shocks of the matchday:
Josip Brekalo, MID (11.9M, 32) was joint top scorer after scoring a hat trick against Union Berlin, and could be a sneaky pick towards the end of the season.

Vincenzo Grifo, MID (14.7, 23) also had a good game with a goal and 2 assists, but he will be facing Bayern next.
