TSG 1899 Hoffenheim are the only team in Europe - apart from 10-time European champions Real Madrid CF - still to be undefeated this season. Oliver Baumann had a huge hand in that on Friday, keeping Eintracht Frankfurt at bay in a goalless draw.
Oliver Baumann was the beating heart of Hoffenheim’s steadfast defence as the Sinsheim club held fellow European aspirants Eintracht to a goalless draw. The goalkeeper had a pair of smart saves from Alex Meier – the Bundesliga’s top scorer in 2014/15 - and dominated his box throughout. Did he do enough, though, to earn your BLMVP vote?
