Goalkeeper: Alexander Schwolow (Freiburg)

Alexander Schwolow might not be one of the goalkeepers who managed to keep a clean sheet but his seven saves made sure Freiburg returned with a point against Bundesliga title hopefuls RB Leipzig. The German shot-stopper saved almost everything that came his way and was the reason behind Leipzig scoring just once in the 1-1 draw.

Right-back: Benjamin Pavard (Bayern Munich)

The French World Cup winner was a threat all evening against Union Berlin on Sunday, mustering three shots in total as well as completing three tackles and interceptions apiece. Benjamin Pavard scored the second goal of the game from a Joshua Kimmich corner late on and sealed a vital 2-0 victory for Bayern Munich, who maintained their spot at the top of the Bundesliga table.

Centre-back: Manuel Gulde (Freiburg) 

Manuel Gulde is one of the most improved players this season and played a great game against RB Leipzig, winning three tackles. The 29-year-old’s efforts ensured that Freiburg drew 1-1 with RB Leipzig – a shock result in the Bundesliga matchday 26.

Centre-Back: Jordan Torunarigha (Hertha Berlin) 

Hertha Berlin’s young centre-back has made a good comeback from his injury layoff and looks much better. Jordan Torunarigha performed really well to help Hertha keep a clean sheet in their 3-0 Bundesliga win over Hoffenheim last weekend. The 22-year-old completed an exceptional 94% of his passes during the game and also provided an assist.

Left-back: Ramy Bensebaini (Borussia Monchengladbach) 

Ramy Bensebaini, who has struggled with injuries this season, has been in great form whenever he has played. The Algerian scored his fifth goal in just 12 Bundesliga appearances, while also registering an assist as Monchengladbach beat Frankfurt 3-1.

Central midfielder: Kerem Demirbay (Bayer Leverkusen) 

Kerem Demirbay had a slow start to life at Bayer Leverkusen since joining the club from fellow Bundesliga outfit Hoffenheim last summer. However, the midfielder looked in great form during his side’s 4-1 win over Werder Bremen on Monday. After providing the assist for Leverkusen’s second goal, the 26-year-old scored his first goal for the club late on in the game.

Central Midfielder: Julian Brandt (Borussia Dortmund) 

Julian Brandt was the Man of the Match as Dortmund thrashed their local rivals Schalke 4-0 on Saturday. He was outstanding throughout the game, registering two assists, besides winning four tackles. Brandt played a key role as Dortmund handsomely won the Revierderby

Left-wing: Raphael Guerreiro (Borussia Dortmund) 

A versatile player who can play in any role on the left side of the field, Raphael Guerreiro started against Schalke as a left wing-back. The Portugal international’s sixth and seventh Bundesliga goals of the season were both superbly taken. He tormented Schalke all afternoon while also helping Dortmund keep a clean sheet.

Right-wing: Alassane Plea (Borussia Monchengladbach)

Alassane Plea picked up from where he left off before the Bundesliga season came to a halt. Starting on the right-wing in Monchengladbach’s convincing 3-1 win over Frankfurt, the Frenchman opened the scoring with his ninth league goal of the season inside two minutes. He managed a total of four shots at the Frankfurt goal.

Striker: Erling Haaland (Borussia Dortmund) 

The young Norwegian star netted his 10th Bundesliga goal since arriving at Dortmund in January. The teenager would later assist Raphael Guerreiro as BVB comfortably brushed aside Schalke 4-0.

Striker: Kai Havertz (Bayer Leverkusen)

The youngster has been in sensational form since the turn of the year and scored two more goals in Bayer Leverkusen’s 4-1 win over Werder Bremen on Monday. Kai Havertz is leading by example and is making sure Leverkusen stay in the Bundesliga title picture with the likes of Bayern Munich, Dortmund, RB Leipzig and Monchengladbach.

Here’s the Bundesliga Team of the Week for matchday 26.
