Oliver Baumann (Hoffenheim)

Baumann just would not be beaten against Bayern Munich, pulling off a string of top-class saves to thwart Robert Lewandowski and Co. and help Hoffenheim earn a first-ever Bundesliga win against the Bavarians.

Theodor Gebre Selassie (Werder Bremen)

Gebre Selassie enjoyed a defender's dream in Bremen's 3-0 win over Schalke on Tuesday. The Czech Republic international opened the scoring with his third goal of the season and defended robustly to help keep the Royal Blues out at the other end.

Oscar Wendt (Borussia Mönchengladbach)

The Swedish left-back passed up a good chance when he slashed wide in the first half against Hertha Berlin, but his overall performance in Gladbach's 1-0 win was to be commended. He constantly provided support going forward but did not neglect his defensive duties.

Niklas Süle (Hoffenheim)

Süle is off to Bayern in the summer and on the evidence of this performance, it is not hard to see why the Bavarians have signed him. Against his future employers, he exuded confidence and maturity both with and without the ball, helping Hoffenheim to an historic win that cements their place in the top four.


Emil Forsberg (RB Leipzig)

On fire against Darmstadt on Matchday 26, Forsberg once again inspired his team to an important 3-2 win against Mainz on Wednesday. The Swedish winger, who has provided a league-high 13 assists this season, was heavily involved in two of Leipzig's three goals and was simply too good for the Mainz defence.

Shinji Kagawa (Borussia Dortmund)

After customarily shining in the Revierderby against Schalke last weekend, Kagawa was effervescent in Tuesday's 3-0 victory against Hamburg, scoring one and laying on another for Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang.

Milos Jojic (Cologne)

The Serbian midfield terrier is more renowned for his defensive work than his goals, but he has now netted in the last two matches and his latest effort was a beauty, finding the net via the inside of the post to see off Eintracht Frankfurt.

Almog Cohen (Ingolstadt)

The Bavarians remain five points adrift of safety but they are certainly not giving up their top-flight status without a fight. Cohen was their driving force in Wednesday's potentially crucial away win at fellow strugglers Augsburg, scoring twice to take him to six for the season. No mean feat considering Die Schanzer have netted just 28 times in total in 2016/17.

Florian Niederlechner (Freiburg)

Freiburg continue to punch above their weight this season and Niederlechner is their most potent weapon. The 26-year-old's winner at Wolfsburg was his ninth league goal of the campaign and, incredibly, he has now scored Freiburg's last five away goals - resulting in two wins and a draw.

Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang (Dortmund)

Another game, another goal for the league's top scorer. Aubameyang netted his 25th goal of the season and his eighth in eight matches against Hamburg. Furthermore, he has also found the net in his last six Bundesliga games.

Andrej Kramaric (Hoffenheim)

Kramaric is in equally good form for Hoffenheim. His composed finish gave Hoffenheim that stunning win against Bayern, and he has now netted seven times in his last seven appearances.
