2Robert LewandowskiFCBVs SGE19.2MLewandowski has 6 goals in his last 2 games and has scored in the last 2 games he played against Frankfurt. Lethal.

7Marcus ThuramBMG@M0514.4M
8Yussuf PoulsenRBLVs BSC11.3MHertha has had the 3rd worst defense so far and Poulsen could capitalize on their weakness of not being able to defend set pieces.

4Lars StindlBMG@M0512.6M
5Joshua KimmichFCBVs SGE16.5M

3Alphonso DaviesFCBVs SGE15MHe surprisingly didn't start the last 2 games for Bayern but he should against Frankfurt.
4Ramy BensebainiBMG@M0512M
5Christopher TrimmelFCUVs SCF10M
