Bayer Leverkusen might’ve lost to Arminia Bielefeld and Hertha who sit at the bottom of the table with Schalke but are still levels ahead of the worst team in the Bundesliga. I expect them to bounce back under new coach Hannes Wolf so Bayer Leverkusen 2-0 is my joker pick for the week.

Bundesliga Fantasy Player Rankings: Matchday 27

Bundesliga Fantasy is back for matchday 27 after a short International Break and despite Eintracht Frankfurt playing Borussia Dortmund in a tough game, the eagles top our player rankings and it could be a potential goal fest with the number of absentees for each team.



1Wout WeghorstWOBVs KOE20.3MWeghorst is in great form, has one of the best fixtures this on paper that has had at least four goals in each game since 2018. He might be reliant on multiple returns for a good score but it's a good possibility against Köln.
2André SilvaSGE@BVB20.2MThis game is all about who is more motivated to get that last Champions League spot over the other but Dortmund are a hot mess right now.
3Saša KalajdžićVFBVs SVW7.3MWerder Bremen have conceded the most headers in 2021 so it is all about using his head to the best effect for Saša.
4Erling Braut HaalandBVBVs SGE20.8MHaaland is one of the most consistent strikers in the world and shouldn't be doubted but no goals in 13 shots over three matches for the Norway National Team is sure to raise some eyebrows.
5Leon BaileyB04Vs S0414.6MForm doesn't matter when you play Schalke. It is a golden opportunity for any forward to add some goals to their name.
6Max KruseFCUVs BSC12.1M
7Thomas Müller
FCB@RBL22.6MAn easy recommendation on any other day but the absence of Lewandowski slightly tilts the tie in favor of the best defense of the league over the best attack.
8Patrick SchickB04Vs S0415.7MIf form does matter to you then Schick could be an even better pick than Bailey with his threat from headers against the worst set-piece defending team in the league.
9Matheus CunhaBSC@FCU15.6M
10Alassane PléaBMGVs SCF16.9M



1Filip KostićSGE@BVB19.4MIt doesn't matter if Can starts at right-back or Meunier. With both teams missing key players in midfield and defense, Kostić could run riot in a potential goal fest.
2Christopher NkunkuRBLVs FCB17.3MThe hunter might turn prey in this fixture and Leipzig will fancy their chances in a must-win game against a Bayern team that is far from their best.
3Florian WirtzB04Vs S048.3MIt is almost impossible to predict who will do better between Wirtz and Demirbay against Schalke because both have been equally bad.
4Maximilian ArnoldWOBVs KOE16.3MIf budget isn't a constraint then Arnold is a great differential with a minimum score of nine in his last six games.
5Lars StindlBMGVs SCF16MStindl's best performances have come in the absence of Hofmann but ending an eight game losing streak against Schalke has no significance.
6Leroy SanéFCB@RBL19.5M
7Marco RichterFCAVs TSG9.8M
8Vincenzo GrifoSCF@BMG14.6MHe could be a sneaky pick if you expect Borussia to go back to their old ways before the win against Schalke. Also plays Arminia in the early fixture next and Schalke after that.
9Christoph BaumgartnerTSG@FCA13.1M
10Thorgan HazardBVBVs SGE12.6MFrankfurt will be missing Hasebe, Hinteregger and Toure in defense so the makeshift backline of Tuta-Ilsanker-Ndicka doesn't inspire much confidence.



1Borna SosaVFBVs SVW5.8MProbably won't keep a clean sheet this week but has great attacking upside and that is all that matters.
2Kevin MbabuWOBVs KOE11.7MOnly Schalke and Arminia have scored fewer goals away from home than Köln.
3Phillip MweneM05Vs DSC2.4MMainz are up there with Wolfsburg and Leverkusen in terms of clean sheet potential this week.
4Raphaël GuerreiroBVBVs SGE16.8M
5Jeremie FrimpongB04Vs S048.6MIf Borussia could keep a clean sheet after conceding in eight games straight then there is hope for Leverkusen who have done it just once in their last 18 games. That was against Borussia.
6Christopher TrimmelFCUVs BSC11.2MTrimmel was at his old best in the previous game registering six key passes but the biggest perk of owning him is that he plays in the last game of the week.
7Deyovaisio ZeefuikBSC@FCU7.5MLast week's most surprising performer, Zeefuik racked up an impressive 19 points against Leverkusen last week. However, it is yet to be seen if Hertha can replicate such performances away from home.
8Nordi MukieleRBLVs FCB11.3MThe clean sheet odds here are in Leipzig's favour. Not that I am expecting them to keep it.
9Pavel KadeřábekTSG@FCA9.6M
10Christian GünterSCF@BMG11.8M



1Florian MüllerSCF@BMG4.6MMüller's monster haul on matchday 26 means that he has the two highest scores in a single game for a keeper this season. 22 points against Stuttgart on MD18 and 18 points against Augsburg on MD26.
2Stefan OrtegaDSC@M056.9MIf your main emphasis is on gaining points rather than just rotation then Ortega and Müller make the best combo.
3Robin ZentnerM05Vs DSC5MMainz have gone from being shut by opponents to shutting them out and are more likely to keep a clean sheet against Arminia than not but they don't generate too many shots so the potential for saves isn't much.

Fantasy Bundesliga: Must-Have/Template Players for Matchday 27

We received our sixth wildcard of the Fantasy Bundesliga season for the International Break but with Robert Lewandowski missing in action, find out how the template team shapes up without him for matchday 27.



Andre Silva

If the most prolific striker in the league is ruled out for a month, then the player who is second to him on the goal-scoring charts becomes an easy recommendation. Silva had a couple of quiet weeks but showed us glimpses against Union Berlin on matchday 26 with two goals and assists in a 5-2 rout. With most premium forwards struggling with form or having difficult fixtures, he could be the forward to splurge your excess cash on even though he plays against Dortmund and Wolfsburg in his next two games.


Saša Kalajdžić

It feels almost criminal to buy one of the cheapest strikers in the game when you could afford the most expensive forwards in the game and still have money left over but Saša has justified his worth with his performances. Only Lewandowski was in better goal-scoring form than him with 12 goals over the last eight matchdays compared to the Austrian target man’s eight goals in the same period. He is giving the premium players a run for their money and you couldn’t ask for a better bargain at 7.3M.




Christopher Nkunku

When Nkunku starts, it is hard to keep him out of your fantasy team for too long. He is one of the most consistent players in the league but has received tough competition from teammate Dani Olmo over the last few weeks with both players consistently involved in the attack and notching up double-digit scores on a regular basis.


Filip Kostić

Kostić is in the form of his life and his recent fantasy scores are a reflection of that. Since matchday 13, he has failed to score above 10 points just twice and has averaged 15 points per game in the same time frame. There is no doubt that Filip Kostić is the most essential player in the game after Robert Lewandowski.


Florian Wirtz

Leverkusen have just suffered back-to-back embarrassing losses against Hertha and Arminia but there is no better game to bounce back than against Schalke. Wirtz himself has struggled with form recently so he isn’t exactly a template player but he will be a popular pick amongst those looking to target a Leverkusen player against the team at the bottom of the table.


Marco Richter

Richter has spent most of the season coming off the bench for Augsburg but in his last two starts, he has shown glimpses of being a high floor-high ceiling player with scores of 10 without any involvement in goals and 23 with a goal and an assist against Borussia. Augsburg have some favourable fixtures coming up with Hoffenheim, Schalke and Arminia facing them next and each game is well suited for Richter whose bulk points consists of shots at goal and creating them.




Borna Sosa

Sosa is still a relative newcomer to the Bundesliga but has already drawn comparisons to legendary players such as David Beckham and Roberto Carlos in his short time playing in the German top-flight. He is another gift from this year’s Stuttgart team which is full of budget busters and leads the league in most goal involvements amongst defenders with eight assists thanks to his pinpoint accuracy from set-pieces and crosses.


Raphaël Guerreiro

If you are worried that Guerreiro won’t start because he is red-flagged then do not fret. He is in full training and his return will be a big boost for Dortmund against Eintracht Frankfurt as he leads the team in key passes per game (2.3) after Jadon Sancho (2.8). Especially with few sub >10M defenders to select from, it is worth shelling out the premium for one of the best defenders in Bundesliga Fantasy.


Kevin Mbabu

Since 27th January, only Chelsea have conceded fewer goals (2) in UEFA’s ‘Top 5’ leagues across all competitions compared to Wolfsburg (5). The Wolves have conceded in just two games out of their last 12 in the Bundesliga and Pokal so a defender from the team is a must-have. With Otavio suspended and LaCroix playing CB, Mbabu stands out as the best defensive option from Wolfsburg.


Phillip Mwene

Mainz have made massive improvements in defence against Svensson and among the teams that have conceded the fewest goals since January, the Zerofivers are part of the list with just seven goals conceded. With consecutive games against Arminia, Koln, Hertha and Bremen who are at the bottom for goals scored, there is a strong possibility that Mainz keep a clean sheet in most of the games.




Stefan Ortega

In a game where saves have more value than clean sheets, it only seems right that the keeper with the most saves has the most points. He might be getting a bit pricy now at 6.9M but budget is the last concern of every Fantasy Bundesliga manager right now and Ortega forms a great partnership with Müller who just scored 18 points his last game against Augsburg.


The Template XI

Bench and other alternatives: Florian Müller/Gregor Kobel/Robin Zentner (GK), Christopher Trimmel/Jeremie Frimpong/Deyovaisio Zeefuik (DEF), Leroy Sané/Maximilian Arnold/Christoph Baumgartner (MID), Erling Haaland/Wout Weghorst/Thomas Müller (FWD)

Total team value: 182.4M

Note: The bench isn’t necessarily a template and you could replace those spots with differentials instead.

Fantasy Bundesliga Differential Picks: Matchday 26

This could be the final week before a possible wildcard so getting those players with low ownership and big potential is more important than ever in our Fantasy Bundesliga differential picks for matchday 26.



Patrick Schick Vs Hertha BSC (A)

“Die Werkself” were the last unbeaten team to concede a loss in the Bundesliga this season but have seen their rank drop from first to sixth since then. Opponents Hertha have been the worst team in the Bundesliga since Pál Dárdai rejoined as manager and Leverkusen will rely on Schick to secure a win and guide them back to a European spot as he is the only player in the team with form having scored in each of his last two games.




Amine Harit Vs Borussia Mönchengladbach (H)

Borussia have lost in each of their last seven games across all competitions and conceded in all of them. Their recent form and lack of motivation mean this game could end up being similar to Hoffenheim’s 4-0 thrashing at the hands of Schalke. Harit scored 29 points in that game and will be a key player if Schalke is to cause an upset again. If you are looking for a differential that could boost your rank before a possible wildcard then Harit is the one.


Florian Neuhaus Vs Schalke 04 (A)

Neuhaus has been one of Borussia’s best players this season and has more points (156) than Hofmann (153) in Fantasy Bundesliga but has played more games this season. He is active in attack and always puts himself in good positions to score which explains his five goals and four assists in Bundesliga this season. If you expect Borussia to score multiple goals and have an easy win against Schalke then Neuhaus is sure to have some involvement.


Marco Richter Vs SC Freiburg (A)

Few would’ve imagined Richter to be the highest-scoring player in matchday 25 but he put in a MOTM performance with a goal and an assist en route to a monster haul of 23 points. He also led the team in shots, dribbles and with Richter possibly playing as a #10 and Hahn playing as a winger instead of a striker, he could be an even better pick than the budget-buster against Freiburg.




Timothy Chandler Vs FC Union Berlin (H)

Frankfurt have tried to replace the injured Durm with different players but have found no success so far. So they decided to give homegrown player Timothy Chandler another shot at RWB again. He was a fantasy favourite last season whenever he played OOP on the wing and was never shy from being involved in the attack and taking shots. Each game between Frankfurt and Union in the Bundesliga has had three goals at least so Chandler could be a go big or go home pick.




Frederik Rønnow Vs Borussia Mönchengladbach (H)

If Rønnow conceding five goals last week is a concern then it shouldn’t be against Borussia who haven’t scored above two goals in their last 11 games. It doesn’t matter if Schalke wins or loses this game as Rønnow should still accumulate plenty of save points against one of the league’s most inconsistent teams.

Borussia have struggled recently but have a great opportunity to bounce back against Schalke so their players are ones to watch out for in our Bundesliga Fantasy player rankings for matchday 26.



1Robert LewandowskiFCBVs VFB25.7MLewandowski has failed to score just once in the last 15 matchdays. With form like this you could argue that you won't need star flexibility this week with no standout options in the individual fixtures.
2Erling Braut HaalandBVB@KOE20.4M
3Thomas Müller
FCBVs VFB22.2MA perfect double up combo with Lewandowski but you will have to compromise your star flexibility this week.
4André SilvaSGEVs FCU19.8M
5Alassane PléaBMG@S0416.7MPléa has just three goals this season in 21 Bundesliga games but you can never count a forward out against second division bound Schalke.
6Wout WeghorstWOB@SVW19.8MWeghorst got 21 points in a 5-0 rout of Schalke but an away game against Bremen has been a low-scoring affair for Wolfsburg recently with the team failing to score more than one goal in each of their last four games away at the Weser Stadium.
7Andrej KramarićTSGVs M0517.8MThere are few forwards to select from the Sunday fixtures but this game could go either way with Mainz's recent form.
8Saša KalajdžićVFB@FCB7.3MSaša could score against Bayern's shaky defense but I expect Bayern to dominate the proceedings.
9Yussuf PoulsenRBL@DSC12.8MA low ceiling pick with the highest ceiling amongst forwards from the early game.
10Patrick SchickB04@BSC15.8M



1Christopher NkunkuRBL@DSC16.9MLeipzig have made it a habit to thump newcomers to the Bundesliga and there couldn't be a more better pick from the early game thank Nkunku.
2Filip KostićSGEVs FCU19M
3Lars StindlBMG@S0415.6MStindl is the most obvious pick from Borussia against Schalke because no other player from the team has looked even remotely good in Fantasy. Also the fact that he is on set-pieces including penalties.
4Joshua KimmichFCBVs VFB19.2M
5Dani OlmoRBL@DSC18MArminia is another low-block team for Olmo to feast on with his shot-making abilities.
6Leroy SanéFCBVs VFB19.2M
7Christoph BaumgartnerTSGVs M0513.2MHoffenheim's best attacking performances have come at home and Baumgartner has played an important role in almost all of them.
8Amine HaritS04Vs BMG12MThere is a big difference between Borussia and Schalke but the former has the worst form in the league currently with four losses in a row and it isn't difficult to imagine Schalke scoring in this game.
9André HahnFCA@SCF5.2MIt is a showdown of the two teams who have conceded the most shots after Schalke so Hahn is expected to rack up plenty of bonus points even if he won't play as a striker.
10Florian WirtzB04@BSC8.4M



1Marcel HalstenbergRBL@DSC14MEasily the best defender for the week as he plays against a dysfunctional attack.
2Ramy BensebainiBMG@S0412.1MThere is a huge potential for points against Schalke but he might not even play.
3Kevin MbabuWOB@SVW11.6M
4Borna SosaVFB@FCB5.8M
5Alphonso DaviesFCBVs VFB14.9M
6Timothy ChandlerSGEVs FCU5.1MFBL veterans will remember Chandler as an OOP defender on the wing with an eye for goals. He could be a decent differential with a possible wildcard over the upcoming international break.
7Nico SchlotterbeckFCU@SGE4.5MWith Trimmel in a massive slump of form, his team's center back who is more attacking and consistent with bonus than him might be a better pick.
8Pavel KadeřábekTSGVs M059.8MOne for you if you expect Hoffenheim to dispose of in-form Mainz.
9Phillip MweneM05@TSG2.2MMainz have turned a new page and conceded just once in their last three games but Hoffenheim have scored in each of their last 12 Bundesliga games against them.
10Jeremie FrimpongB04@BSC8.8MSince matchday 15, only Hertha have scored fewer goals (5) than Schalke (6).



1Stefan OrtegaDSCVs RBL6.7MIt could be a big game for Ortega as the keeper with the most saves plays against the team with the most shots after Bayern.
2Frederik RønnowS04Vs BMG1M0.1% chance of a cleansheet but Borussia bombarding his goal with shots is a guarantee.
3Florian MüllerSCFVs FCA4.6MHe could have a more than decent score with a fair chance at a clean sheet against trigger happy Augsburg.
4Robin ZentnerM05@TSG4.9M
5Koen CasteelsWOB@SVW10.9M
