If you want to be successful in Official Fantasy Bundesliga then you need to be able to assemble a crack squad to lead you to the title. The basis of any successful team is the goalkeeper. bundesliga.com brings you the top five Fantasy goalkeepers from last season.

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

1) Manuel Neuer (FCB, 161 points)

The Bayern Munich goalkeeper is without doubt one of the best in the business, and he came out top in last season’s Official Fantasy Manager too. The new Bayern captain conceded the fewest goals and that is unlikely to change in the new season, meaning minus points are hardly a worry with him. Buying Neuer for your team is pricey, but tends to be worth it.

2) Oliver Baumann (TSG, 152 points)

Baumann played a massive role in Hoffenheim’s monumental season in 2016/17 with his high number of saves. The Sinsheim club finished the campaign fourth and conceded the second-fewest goals in the league after Bayern (37). As long as Baumann keeps batting the ball away, he’s a good - and cheaper - choice for your no.1 spot.

3) Peter Gulacsi (RBL, 106 points)

The Hungarian was the rearguard for the promoted side last season and fought off competition from Fabio Coltorti and Marius Müller. Leipzig finished the campaign in second whilst Gulacsi finished as the third-best goalkeeper in Official Fantasy Bundesliga. Assuming he remains the first choice at the Red Bull Arena, he could be a reliable source of points for you.


4) Roman Bürki (BVB, 104 points)

Bürki showed marked improvements during his second season at Borussia Dortmund as he cemented his position in goal ahead of veteran Roman Weidenfeller. If new BVB boss Peter Bosz can bring a bit more stability to his side’s defence, Bürki could find himself with plenty more points to his name than last season.

5) Rune Jarstein (BSC, 104 points)

Now 32 years of age, the Norwegian has finally found his feet at Hertha Berlin and managed to keep 11 clean sheets last season. He remains the undisputed no.1 in the capital, so you should have no concerns about bringing him into your team.
