Official Fantasy Bundesliga gives you the chance to prove you’re a Bundesliga expert. When you’ve assembled a top team it means points accumulate all by themselves. Here bundesliga.com explains how your players can pick up points.

Don't forget: This season, the Official Fantasy Bundesliga is also available for download from the App Store and Google Play!

Every player receives points for his actions on the pitch based on the statistical analysis of the game. Players pick up points for positive actions but can also lose points for negative actions.

For example, a player will earn points for scoring a goal. However, his position on the pitch is key here because a striker will receive three points, a midfielder four and a defender six. If a goalkeeper manages to score a goal, he will receive ten points.

Winning challenges is also an important factor in the game. A defender will earn three points for every five successful challenges in a match, with midfielders and strikers both picking up two.

A player will lose points, for example, if he scores an own goal (-4) or is sent off. Being dismissed for two yellow cards will earn three minus points, whilst a straight red is five.
