Bundesliga Team of the Week: Matchday 26

With Christian Pulisic and Robert Lewandowski making the grade, there's a real touch of star quality about the Bundesliga Team of the Week for Matchday 26.

Goalkeeper

Ralf Fährmann (Schalke, 12 points)

Try as they might, Mainz could not find a way past Fährmann. The Schalke skipper's acrobatic stop from substitute Levin Öztunali was the pick of the bunch as the Royal Blues made it four wins on the spin, and a third successive clean sheet.

Thilo Kehrer (Schalke, 14pts)

Preferred to Benjamin Stambouli in the Schalke back three, Kehrer came on on top of 14 challenges. Not bad at all, considering he's a full-back by trade.

David Alaba (Bayern Munich, 15pts)

Hamburg right-sided pair Dennis Diekmeier and Aaron Hunt may as well not bothered turning up at the Allianz Arena on Saturday. Alaba gave nothing away, instead spending most of his time in the HSV half. The Austrian set up Robert Lewandowski for a sensational team goal in the first half - the second in a 6-0 rout.

Midfielders

Christian Pulisic (Borussia Dortmund, 14pts)

Guess who's back, back again. Guess who's back, tell a friend… Puli's back, Puli's back, Puli's back... What a performance it was from Pulisic on his first Bundesliga start since Matchday 22! The American whizz supplied the cross that forced the opening goal, and teed up Michy Batshuayi for his first of the night as Dortmund clinched a thrilling 3-2 win over Eintracht Frankfurt.

Caiuby (Augsburg, 15pts)

Zlatko Junuzovic (Werder Bremen, 15pts)

Bremen's captain fantastic made a triumphant return to the Bremen starting line-up, laying on goals for Milos Veljkovic and Max Eggestein in a comfortable 3-1 home win over Cologne.

Lucas Alario (Bayer Leverkusen, 19pts)

For the second week running, Alario chimed in with a goal and assist for team-mate Julian Brandt as Leverkusen got the better of Borussia Mönchengladbach. The Argentine likes a challenge, too, as evinced by his game-leading 17 tackles won at the BayArena.
