I can’t believe the end of 2016/17 Bundesliga season is already here! It’s gone by in a flash, but what a wild ride it’s been thanks in no small part to the fun I’ve had playing Official Fantasy Bundesliga.
Still, I didn’t have the worst weekend, even if I didn’t hit triple figures. However, I’m aiming to finish on an even higher note on Matchday 34, and I’ve got three highly motivated strikers, from three different fixtures, in mind to help me do just that!
Getting an automatic berth into the Champions League group stage would make a world of difference for Hoffenheim. Level on points with Dortmund heading into the final day, the Sinsheim side are going to need to score big to cut the goal difference deficit. They got five last time out against Werder, and I reckon a similar goal-haul could follow this weekend.
Andrej Kramaric (FW, 216pts, 12.5M): He scored twice last weekend and, with Hoffenheim pushing for third, I reckon Kramaric will have a big part to play against Augsburg.
A relegation six-pointer on the final day? What a treat! Joy and despair will be doled out in equal measure come the final whistle. Hamburg are winless in their last five league games and it’s hard to see that changing on Saturday against a Wolfsburg side who have demonstrated a real sense of unity since the 6-0 defeat to Bayern.
Mario Gomez (FW, 242pts, 13.75M): Gomez is going to be Wolfsburg’s go-to guy in their winner-takes-all clash with Hamburg. I’d be surprised if he doesn’t get on the scoresheet.
The title is in the bag, but Bayern will want a fitting send-off on home soil to celebrate their record-breaking achievement. Carlo Ancelotti will likely rotate his side, which means the players given rare starts will be highly motivated to prove their worth. Freiburg have Europe on the mind, but they have not won in Munich in 16 attempts (two draws, 14 losses)!
Robert Lewandowski (FW, 356pts, 18.8M): Given that he’s gunning for the Torjägerkanone and has scored 12 goals in 10 games against Freiburg, Lewandowski is a must-have.
Good luck on the final weekend! It’s been an honour to lend you my advice, the good and the bad! I guess I’ll have to sign off until next season - unless anyone fancies a round of fantasy fun for the relegation play-off?
