Following a week of European action and with more Bundesliga fixtures coming up on Tuesday and Wednesday, a number of coaches opted to rotate their line-ups - and several players took full advantage to showcase their talents, making it into our Matchday 3 Team of the Week in the process.
Manuel Neuer (FC Bayern München) - the world’s best goalkeeper enhanced his reputation further with a string of impressive saves as Bayern were pushed all the way by FC Ingolstadt 04.
Rafinha (Bayern) - the second of three representatives from the record Bundesliga champions, the Brazilian ensured his presence in this week's dream team thanks to a scorching goal against Ingolstadt.
Frederik Sörensen (1. FC Köln) - the Dane helped the Billy Goats maintain their excellent start to the season in their 3-0 win over SC Freiburg, and it was his monster throw-in that led to the third goal.
Thorgan Hazard (Borussia Mönchengladbach) - the young Belgian is on fire at present, scoring his second and third league goals of the season to help dispatch SV Werder Bremen 4-1 in a game in which his pace and movement were a constant threat.
Timo Werner (RB Leipzig) - a half-time substitute away to Hamburg, Werner was the spark Leipzig needed to get going after the break. His tireless running was a menace for the home defence, and the 20-year-old capped a fine display with two goals.
