Bundesliga returns to action for Gameweek 407 after the international break came just weeks into the new domestic season, with Bayer Leverkusen and Bayern Munich still boasting 100% winning records three games into the season.
Xabi Alonso’s side have been getting rave reviews early on in the campaign having scored 12 league goals already, and there is the mouth-watering prospect of the top two going head-to-head on Friday evening to kick off the weekend’s action.
Elsewhere, Dortmund are looking to pick up just their second win of the campaign away at Freiburg having struggled to hit the heights of last season following the departure of several key players.
101 Great Goals has looked at the data to see which players you should consider picking for the week ahead in your Sorare Bundesliga team, analysing the most in-form players judging by their last five average scores and looked at who each player is to come up against in the next gameweek to suggest who you should pick in your side.
Gregor Kobel - vs Freiburg (a)
There is a minor injury cloud over the head of Kobel after he was ruled out of Switzerland duty due to a minor thigh injury, but he is expected to be fit to continue featuring for Dortmund against Freiburg at the weekend. It is a good job too, as he has started the season well with scores of 75, 61 and 51 in Bundesliga. While Dortmund haven’t hit top gear yet, it is thanks to their keeper that they haven’t been embarrassed so far.
Joakim Maehle - vs Union Berlin (h)
Maehle has hit the ground running for club and country this season, recording scores of 63, 73, 43, 100 and 79 in the five games he has played since the start of August. Granted, the perfect score of 100 came in a big win for Denmark over San Marino, but he has adapted very well to Bundesliga since his move from Atalanta in the summer. The full-back does not have any attacking returns for his club just yet but showed on international duty that he is more than capable of contributing in the final third, and he could be a good asset to keep an eye on.
Chris Fuhrich - vs Mainz 05 (a)
Fuhrich has one of those benefits of being a midfield on Sorare who primarily plays as one of his side’s key attackers. Stuttgart have made a good start to the season, sitting third in the table with six points from three games and his form has been key to that. He hit two goals in the final game before the international break in the 5-0 win over Freiburg when he scored 81 on Sorare and hit an 88 in the opening game of the season when he notched two assists, showing his all-round attacking potential from the left wing.
Victor Boniface - vs Bayern Munich (a)
Boniface has been one of the main beneficiaries of Xabi Alonso’s adventurous side at Leverkusen, with four goals and two assists in just three starts since moving to the club from Belgium. Leverkusen face the sternest test of their credentials on Friday night when they travel to Munich to take on the defending champions, and a lot of people will be keeping a close eye on Boniface to see if he is the real deal or not and continue the form that has seen him score 70, 63, 76 and 98 in successive weeks.
