The Coach: Three favourable fixtures on Matchday 29

GOALMANIA gripped the Bundesliga over the last three Matchdays. It was a thrill-a-minute 10 days that had me on the edge of my seat as a Bundesliga fan and an Official Fantasy Bundesliga player.

Borussia Dortmund vs Eintracht Frankfurt

I averaged 107 points between Matchday 26 and 28 and, had I not forgotten to change my team for last weekend on account of my birthday festivities, that number would have been over 110 – rookie mistake!

Seeing as I gave myself a pretty rubbish birthday gift last week, I thought I'd make myself feel better through the spirit of generosity… so here are three fixtures from this weekend that should lend themselves to big fantasy returns, including three suggestions to replace the suspended Robert Lewandowski.

Having sat in third place for three straight weeks at the start of the Rückrunde, Frankfurt have been on a worrying slide since Matchday 20, picking up three points from a possible 27, scoring just three times, whilst conceding 15. The Eagles' 2-2 draw against Bremen showed signs of life, but a trip to the SIGNAL IDUNA PARK, where Dortmund are unbeaten in over two years in the league, couldn't have come at a worse time for Niko Kovac's charges.
