The Scout: Under-the-radar DFB Cup stars

With the opening of the Bundesliga just days away I have been wondering about players that would not usually come to mind when putting together my Official Bundesliga Fantasy team. I put together a list of players that would usually fly under the radar, but happened to star in the first round of the DFB Cup.

Vincenzo Grifo,SC Freiburg

Put your faith in Flo and sign up to the Official Fantasy Bundesliga now!

Fantasy value: 11M

Grifo scored two goals and picked up an assist in SC Freiburg's 4-0 win over fourth-tier SV Babelsberg on Saturday.

With his second goal coming from a direct free-kick and his assist coming from a corner, set-piece duties will again belong to the attacking midfielder, who found the net 14 times last season and looks set to provide plenty of bang for your buck this time around.
