First place:Jens Hegeler (r.) of Bayer 04 Leverkusen was king of theBundesliga subs in 2012/13, coming off the bench no fewer than 22 times for the Werkself.
Second place: Pushing Hegeler all the way was Eintracht Frankfurt's Stefano Celozzi) (l., against Augsburg'sSebastian Langkamp). Eagles head coach Armin Veh utilised his defender as a sub on 21 occasions.
=Third place: FC Schalke 04's Tranquillo Barnetta (l., against Düsseldorf's Robbie Kruse) was a much-favoured pair of fresh legs as well, making a belated start to 19 of his 21 league appearances for the Royal Blues.
=Third place: Forward Mike Hanke's final season with Borussia Mönchengladbach (l., against Wolfsburg'sJan Polak) was largely played off the bench - the future Freiburg goalgetter was subbed on 19 times as well.
Fourth place: All but three of Joseph Akpala's (l., against Düsseldorf's Juanan) 21 matchday contributions for Werder Bremencame in the role of substitute - the Nigerian striker will doubtless be hoping for a better starting percentage next season.
