Christmas is just around the corner and that means – I can hardly bring myself to say it – the winter break. Before life loses a bit of meaning for a month or so, there are still three match days ahead in the coming two weeks. That presents a challenge not only for Bundesliga coaches, but Official Fantasy Bundesliga managers also need to plan the final straight before the end of the year. And what kind of Scout would I be if I wasn’t prepared to offer you my assistance?
Bundesliga clubs often use the winter break as an opportunity to reshuffle their pack. So you really shouldn’t think beyond 21 December when planning your own squad. I probably don’t need to mention that Robert Lewandowski and Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang are untouchable up front (or do ??). And neither that Marco Reus and Arjen Robben will strengthen any Fantasy midfield in the world now that they have returned from injury. But who should you pick to complement these superstars? Don’t worry, help is at hand.
I hope you found the right recommendation for your team. For the bargain-hunters among you, Benno Schmitz (DEF, RB Leipzig, 1.3M), Pascal Stenzel (DEF, SC Freiburg, 1.8M) or Dong-Won Ji (FOR, FC Augsburg, 5.9M) could also be interesting. Just don’t tell Matt ‘The Expert’ or James ‘The Coach’. After all, I’m very keen to secure the Christmas championship in our insider mini-league.
