Fantasy Bundesliga: Scout squads for Matchday 1

Here are our Fantasy Bundesliga scout squad picks for the first matchday of the 2021/22 season.
Just as last season, our Fantasy Bundesliga writers will each select a squad of 10 outfield players of any formation for every matchday.

In order to make our teams more variable, all formations are allowed, each squad must not cost more than 100 million and can only contain players that are owned by less than 15% of Fantasy Bundesliga managers.

Additionally, every manager is allowed to pick a captain that will earn him double points, and – as something new – each manager can choose a maximum of three players from the same team.

Without further ado, here are our squads for the upcoming matchday:

Nordi Mukiele, RB Leipzig (10M, 6%)
Christian Günter, Freiburg (11M, 10%)
