A late winner from Mathys Tel ensured that Bayern Munich kept up with the early pace set by Bayer Leverkusen atop the Bundesliga over the weekend, with Xabi Alonso’s side sweeping aside lowly SV Darmstadt.
Expected title-challengers Borussia Dortmund continued to fall behind, with another draw (their second in three games) leaving them four points off the top two already, while Union Berlin also dropped off courtesy of a convincing defeat to RB Leipzig.
Each week 101 Great Goals will look at the best performing players in each position in Sorare Bundesliga to give you an insight into which players might be worth considering as we head into the next gameweek.
Alexander Nubel - 96
For the second time in three weeks, Alexander Nubel bought home the honour of highest scoring goalkeeper, with the Bayern Munich loanee impressing once more.
It was another massive win for Stuttgart, who put five past SC Freiburg to take their early season record to played 3: won 2: scored 11: conceded 6.
It could have been more too, but Nubel was excellent in between the sticks, making seven saves and keeping out almost two expected goals as his side strolled to victory in a game put to bed in the opening 20 minutes.
Nubel’s breakdown of Sorare points in the game was:
- General: 0
- Goalkeeping: 35
- Possession: -1.5
- Passing: 2.1
- Attack: 0
- Decisive: 60
Jeff Chabot - 97
Though he left the field injured 10 minutes from time, Koln defender Julian (Jeff) Chabot was a key reason that his side held on for a draw with Eintracht Frankfurt.
The centre-back made a clearance off the line with the score at 1-0, and was substituted before his side conceded the equaliser meaning that he kept his own personal clean sheet intact, though that will be little consolation to the defender who now appears set for a spell on the sidelines.
Chabot’s breakdown of Sorare points in the game was:
- General: -2.0
- Defence: 29.5
- Possession: 5.0
- Attack: 1
- Passing: 3.6
- Decisive: 60
Joshua Kimmich- 100
After a summer of transfer uncertainty, Kimmich returned to his best to help his side to a narrow 2-1 win over Borussia Monchengladbach.
The German midfielder put in a man-of-the-match performance, grabbing two assists among his massive 93 passes completed. Though Harry Kane was kept quiet, Kimmich and Bayern proved that even without the Englishman contributing they are still capable of winning football matches.
Kimmich’s breakdown of Sorare points in the game was:
- General: -2
- Defence: 3
- Possession: -1.7
- Passing: 31
- Attack: 9
- Decisive: 70
Victor Boniface - 98
22-year-old Boniface might be a player you hear plenty more about this season after he started the season in emphatic style.
Scoring twice last week, the Nigerian striker netted another two in Leverkusen’s 5-1 thrashing of Darmstadt on top of grabbing an assist to continue his side’s excellent start to the season.
With strikers hot in demand and fetching extortionate prices, Boniface is one to keep an eye on.
Boniface’s breakdown of Sorare points in the game was:
- General: 0.5
- Defence: 0
- Possession: 3.8
- Passing: 6.2
- Attack: 7.5
- Decisive: 80
