As Bundesliga game week 33 came to an end, there was no slowing down on the part of Bayern Munich, as the freshly-crowned champions won their game against Freiburg comfortably, while Borussia Dortmund also ensured they finish second, following their triumph over RB Leipzig.
However, there were notable changes at the other end of the table. Werder Bremen’s loss against Mainz means that their fate is no longer in their hands as they will be relegated if 16th-placed Fortuna Dusseldorf avoid defeat in their last game.
Here are the results of game week 33 of the Bundesliga.
Without further ado, let’s take a look at our Bundesliga Team of the Week for gameweek 33. We are using the 4-1-2-1-2 (narrow) formation.
Goalkeeper: Roman Burki (Borussia Dortmund)
The battle for the runners-up spot turned out to be a one-sided affair as Dortmund eased past RB Leipzig 2-0.
BVB goalkeeper Roman Burki was more than happy to respond when called upon as he made four saves in the game and kept a clean sheet. The 29-year-old Swiss has made 30 Bundesliga appearances this season, keeping an impressive 13 clean sheets.
Right-back: Kevin Mbabu (Wolfsburg)
Joining his international teammate Roman Burki on the list, the young Swiss full-back was in sparkling form as Wolfsburg thrashed Schalke 4-1.
Kevin Mbabu scored a goal and made the most tackles for his team in the match (5).
The 25-year-old, who has played 19 Bundesliga matches for Wolfsburg since joining from Young Boys last summer, has three goals and an assist to his name.
Centre-back: Mats Hummels (Borussia Dortmund)
The centre-back joins his goalkeeper in our team as he put up an impressive display to help keep Dortmund a clean sheet against a very attacking RB Leipzig side.
Mats Hummels completed the highest number of passes (72), the second-highest take-ons (3) and the highest number of blocks (4) in the game.
The 2-0 win made sure that Dortmund finish at second place behind champions Bayern Munich.
Centre-back: Benjamin Hubner (Hoffenheim)
The German centre-back had a terrific game as Hoffenheim destroyed Union Berlin 4-0.
Benjamin Hubner had everything going his way as he helped Hoffenheim keep a clean sheet, in addition to providing an assist.
He also played the second-highest number of passes in the game (68) with an accuracy of 78%.
It was his 24th Bundesliga appearance of the season.
Left-back: Philipp Max (Augsburg)
Philipp Max is one of the most attacking full-backs in the Bundesliga.
The German had a great game against Dusseldorf as he provided the assist for his team’s goal in the 1-1 draw.
Max, who made the highest number of crosses in the game (3), has scored eight goals and set up six more in 30 Bundesliga outings in the present campaign.
Defensive midfielder: Joshua Kimmich (Bayern Munich)
Joshua Kimmich was once again running the show for Bayern Munich from the midfield, with the German international scoring the opening goal of the game in the Bavarians’ 3-1 triumph over Freiburg.
The Stuttgart academy graduate completed the second-highest number of passes (78) in the game with an accuracy of 92%.
It was Kimmich’s fourth goal in 32 Bundesliga appearances this season.
Central midfielder: Dodi Lukebakio (Hertha Berlin)
Although the former Belgian Under-21 international moved to Hertha Berlin from Watford last summer, this is his second season in the Bundesliga as he was on loat at Fortuna Dusseldorf in 2018-19.
Dodi Lukebakio was at his sparkling best as he scored a goal and assisted another in Hertha’s shock 2-0 win over Bayer Leverkusen.
He also put in a rigid defensive display and helped his team out with two well-timed tackles. Lukebakio now has seven goals and six assists to his name in 29 Bundesliga appearances this season.
Central midfielder: Patrick Herrmann (Borussia Monchengladbach)
The dynamic German midfielder played a key role as Borussia Monchengladbach won comfortably 3-1 against an already-relegated Paderborn side to leapfrog Leverkusen into the fourth spot.
Patrick Herrmann opened the scoring as early as the fourth minute and was a nuisance for Paderborn’s defence with his through balls and crosses in the final third.
The 29-year-old has made 26 league appearances this season, playing mostly as a second fiddle to Marcus Thuram, but has still managed to score six goals and provide as many assists.
Attacking midfielder: Lars Stindl (Borussia Monchengladbach)
Lars Stindl is one of the most underrated players in German football but that hasn’t stopped the Borussia Monchengladbach captain from performing in every single campaign.
Against Paderborn, he was playing in his preferred role as a number 10 and scored a brace as Monchengladbach comfortably won with a 3-1 scoreline.
Stindl, who managed three shots on target, which was the highest by any player in the game, has scored nine goals in 24 Bundesliga appearances this term.
Striker: Robert Lewandowski (Bayern Munich)
Robert Lewandowski is arguably the best striker in the world at present, with the Polish hitman breaking multiple goalscoring records this season.
The former Dortmund ace scored a brace and provided an assist as Bayern thumped Freiburg 3-1.
Lewandowski currently leads the goalscoring charts in the Bundesliga with 33 strikes, seven ahead of second-placed Timo Werner.
Striker: Erling Haaland (Borussia Dortmund)
Erling Haaland possesses all the skills to seriously challenge Robert Lewandowski for the Golden Boot next season, with the Norwegian teenager being a goalscoring machine at the age of 19.
The former Salzburg hitman scored a brace as Dortmund defeated Leipzig 2-0 to secure second place.
The young striker, who joined Dortmund in January, has managed to score 13 goals in 14 Bundesliga appearances for BVB.
Here’s how our Bundesliga Team of the Week for gameweek 33 would line up.
