All three Official Fantasy Bundesliga insiders had reason to be happy on Matchday 9: For the second week in a row, Matt "The Expert" Howarth picked the strongest team of the "Project 50" crew.
James "The Coach" Thorogood had a personal-best haul of 136 points and Flo "The Scout" Reinecke defended his lead on his fellow insiders in the overall game with a respectable 124 points.
Before the last Matchday, the "Expert" picked 1. FC Köln's right-sided duo Frederik Sörensen and Marcel Risse, RB Leipzig's Marvin Compper at the back, with TSG 1899 Hoffenheim's surprise package Kerem Demirbay up ahead with FC Bayern München's Robert Lewandowski leading the line. That quintet earned 58 points. James (47 points) and Flo (45) could only watch on. Who will have the last laugh this weekend? Remember, it's two defenders, two midfielders and a striker with an in-game budget of 50M!

If Anthony Modeste hadn’t missed a penalty last weekend I’d have come out on top. On Matchday 10 I’m backing four players who I recommended in my favourable fixtures article - live by the sword, die by the sword!
