Goalkeeper

Rene Adler (Hamburger SV) - the former Germany international made a string of superb saves, only to have his resistance broken three minutes from normal time in HSV's 1-0 defeat to FC Bayern München.

Hamburg goalkeeper Rene Adler was desperately unlucky not to keep a clean sheet against Bayern.

Defenders

Theodor Gebre Selassie (SV Werder Bremen) - after missing a glorious opening in the first half, the Czech international popped up with an injury-time winner as Bremen came from a goal down against VfL Wolfsburg to post their first three-point haul of the campaign.

Lukasz Piszczek (Borussia Dortmund) – an integral cog in the Dortmund machine, the Poland international scored his second goal in as many games in Friday's 3-1 win over SC Freiburg.

Oscar Wendt (Borussia Mönchengladbach) - takes his place in the side after an impressive performance, capped by his tenth Bundesliga goal, in Gladbach's 2-0 win over FC Ingolstadt 04.

Oscar Wendt (1st.r) helped Gladbach to their tenth successive home win in the Bundesliga on Saturday.

Forwards
