Hofmann has become something of a regular in the Fantasy Team of the Week as the season has drawn to a close, with Gladbach chalking up three straight wins to secure a place in the UEFA Champions League for the first time since 2016/17. The 27-year-old has got three goals and an assist in that run, including one of each in the final 2-1 victory over Hertha Berlin. The Foals only needed a draw to finish in the top four, but the midfielder calmed nerves among the thousands of cardboard cut-outs inside Borussia-Park when he netted inside just seven minutes.

Goals had been at a serious premium this season for Bremen, who went into the final day needing to win, and likely by a significant margin depending on Fortuna Düsseldorf’s result at Union Berlin. It would all end well for Werder, though, thanks to Osako, whose brace and assist for Milot Rashica against former club Cologne ensured that the Green-Whites in fact avoided the (automatic) drop with a point to spare. The Japan international also proved a shrewd purchase for any managers brave enough to plump for the goal-shy forward in a pivotal game.

Watch: Kramaric talks of his pride at his performance

Kramaric was without doubt the standout performer on the final day. The Croatia international got all four goals in Hoffenheim’s 4-0 win AWAY at Dortmund, becoming the first player this season to score four in a game, the first in TSG’s history to do so in a single Bundesliga match, and inflicting BVB’s heaviest home defeat in over a decade. His six shots were also just one less than the entire Borussia team as the Sinsheimers leapfrogged Wolfsburg into sixth and claimed a place in the UEFA Europa League group stage.
