bundesliga.com presents the Bundesliga Fantasy Team of the Week for Matchday 14...
Despite conceding two goals on Friday night against Hoffenheim two Frankfurt defenders scored 25 points or more on Matchday 14. Toure out-scored teammate Hinteregger by four points despite the latter bagging a goal and an assist in the 2-2 draw. The pair - who both play as centre-backs in a three-man defence, having become viable Fantasy options going forward with the Eagles' new tactical system which sees both Toure and Hinteregger underlap the wingers to go forward into midfield. It's meant that they are heavily involved and both ends of the pitch, reflected in Toure's incredible 12 points for attempts on goal.
Nineteen points does not reflect the incredible impact that Bensebaini had on Matchday 14. So much so that he was named the Bundesliga's Man of the Matchday having scored two goals in the final 30 minutes to pull Gladbach back from behind against Bayern Munich. His first goal was a bullet header from a corner before the Algeria international showed nerves of steel to smash home an injury-time game-winning penalty against Manuel Neuer. The win keeps the Foals top of the Bundesliga, and moves then seven points clear of defending champions Bayern.
Having struggled through the end of October, it's fair to say that Sancho is back to his best for Dortmund in Lucien Favre's fresh tactical system as we approach the winter break. A 3-4-3 allows skill-king Sancho to have a free-roaming position in attack, which has helped the 19-year-old to score five goals and provided two assists in his last four appearances in all competitions. He scored his third Bundesliga brace on Matchday 14 in the 5-0 defeat of Fortuna Düsseldorf, and also provided an assist for Thorgan Hazard.
