Goalkeeper

Alexander Schwolow (SC Freiburg) - SC Freiburg have Alexander Schwolow to thank for their single point against Bayer 04 Leverkusen on Saturday afternoon. Having made a number of stellar saves throughout the second half, the goalkeeper topped off a stunning performance with the first penalty save of his Bundesliga career, denying Javier 'Chicharito' Hernandez in the 88th minute.

Alexander Schwolow had a match to remember against Leverkusen.

Defenders

Marvin Plattenhardt (Hertha Berlin) - The Capital club's defender was key to their 3-2 victory against VfL Wolfsburg. Not only did the left-back strike a stunning free-kick to bring Hertha back level on a goal a piece but his run into the Wolfsburg box drew the foul that saw Pal Dardai's side awarded a match-winning penalty.

Willi Orban (RB Leipzig) - The top-scoring defender in the Bundesliga showed great composure as FC Schalke 04 looked to halt RB Leipzig's seemingly unstoppable momentum. He may have conceded a first-half goal to Sead Kolasinac, but the 24-year-old remains the rock at the heart of the league's third tightest defence.

Lukas Piszczek (Borussia Dortmund) - The Polish defender also got his name on the scoresheet during Matchday 13. His header in the 15th minute of play put Dortmund back in control during their 4-1 victory against Borussia Mönchengladbach and brought his all-time Bundesliga goal tally to 15.

Watch: Plattenhardt's superb strike in Hertha's eventful 3-2 victory against Wolfsburg.

Midfielders

Salomon Kalou (Hertha Berlin) - Not cracking under pressure, Kalou's injury time penalty meant Hertha walked away victorious and maintained their place in the top three. A persistent threat to the Wolves, the 31-year-old struck four shots on goal - the most of any player on the field.

Marco Reus (Borussia Dortmund) - In his first start of the season, the German international returned in emphatic style. Providing three assists - the most he has ever registered in a single game - Reus was key in creating the spark to light up Dortmund's attack.

Ousmane Dembele (Borussia Dortmund) - The 19-year-old got the better of Gladbach's Mahmoud Dahoud on Saturday afternoon to net his third goal of the season. He proved a persistent nuisance to the Foals defence in only his 12th appearance in a Dortmund shirt.

Arjen Robben (FC Bayern München) - The Dutchman had a lot to celebrate on his 150th appearance in the Bundesliga. A goal and an assist turned the game around for the Bavarians in their 3-1 victory over 1. FSV Mainz 05. Having set up Lewandowski before a perfectly timed header in the bottom right-hand corner, the 32-year-old proved he still has match-winning quality.

Watch: Returning Reus wants to see more of the likes of Saturday's performance.

Forwards

Robert Lewandowski (FC Bayern München) - Scoring the match-winner on Friday evening, Lewandowski was crucial in cancelling out Mainz's early goal. Netting his eighth and ninth goals of the campaign, the Poland captain ended his three-game goal drought to secure the Bavarians' ninth victory of the season.

Sandro Wagner (TSG 1899 Hoffenheim) - Efficiency was key for Sandro Wagner on Saturday afternoon. The two shots he had on goal against 1. FC Köln he netted, helping Hoffenheim extend their unbeaten streak to 13 games.

Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang (Borussia Dortmund) - A once-again outstanding Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang scored his 14th and 15th goals of the season against Gladbach to maintain his grasp on the Torjägerkanone. The Gabonese striker has made clear his desire to land the title and has so far let his goals prove that.

Watch: Aubameyang, Demebele and Piszczek have an enjoyable Matchday 13.
