Ahead of Bayern's showdown with Dortmund on Matchday 31, bundesliga.com picks the top-scoring Fantasy players from both clubs and unites them in one heavyweight unit...

Goalkeeper

Gregor Kobel (Dortmund)
Value: 9.9M
Points: 147

Gregor Kobel's level 10th with Manuel Neuer for total points among goalkeepers in Fantasy Bundesliga. He's conceded 43 goals to Neuer's 29, and kept two fewer cleans sheet, but is the busier of the two by some distance (99 points for shots saved, compared to 69). He's also 3M cheaper than the world's best stopper, and owned by 13 percent fewer Fantasy Managers.

Defenders

Raphael Guerreiro (Dortmund)
Value: 14.6M
Points: 165

Dayot Upamecano (Bayern)
Value: 13.9M
Points: 181

Alphonso Davies (Bayern)
Value: 14.9M
Points: 180

Davies doesn't come cheap, but he's worth every dime. The Canadian left-back is Bayern's second highest-scoring Fantasy defender, despite missing the majority of the Rückrunde with a mild heart condition. He's garnered over a third of his total tally for won duels (66 points). He's also assisted three, whilst racking up a combined 54 points for goal attempts and passes to a shot. Imagine the damage the 21-year-old - an attacking wide player in his youth - will do once those efforts start to stick.

Midfielders

Julian Brandt (Dortmund)
Value: 12.5M
Points: 194

Joshua Kimmich (Bayern)
Value: 18.9M
Points: 224

Jude Bellingham (Dortmund)
Value: 14.5M
Points: 214

After Haaland (244 pts) and club captain Marco Reus (251 pts), Jude Bellingham ranks as Dortmund's third best performer in the Fantasy World. The England teenager has started every game bar two for BVB, and trumps Bayern alternatives Leon Goretzka and Joshua Kimmich in terms of bang for your buck.

Jamal Musiala (Bayern)
Value: 13.1M
Points: 173

Forwards

Thomas Müller (Bayern)
Value: 20.5M
Points: 288

Robert Lewandowski (Bayern)
Value: 25M
Points: 404

It boggles the mind that Lewandowski is only on the books of 75 percent of Fantasy Managers. Yes, he's the most expensive player in the game, but he's also the biggest hitter. The freshly minted Striker of the Year has scored 32 times in 30 outings so far this league campaign, registering bonus points for multiple goal showings on nine occasions. His record of 22 goals across 15 Bundesliga meetings with his former employers teases much more of the same in the latest instalment of Der Klassiker.

Watch: Robert Lewandowski, Striker of the Year

Marco Reus (Dortmund)
Value: 17.3M
Points: 251

Reus sneaks in ahead of Haaland to partner ex-Dortmund clubmate Lewandowski and Germany international teammate Müller in attack. With nine goals and 10 assists, plus a combined 72 points for goal attempts and passes to a shot, the BVB skipper has more than earned his place - even if it is a spot that would surely have gone to the 18-goal Haaland, had the Dortmund No.9 not sat out 10 of 31 matches through injury.
