Bundesliga Team of the Week: Robben leads Bayern to victory

The Dutchman keeps his place in Goal’s weekly XI, which also features Sokratis, Jefferson Farfan and Heung Son-Min

Germany’s finest had contrasting fortunes in Europe in midweek, but Bayern Munich, Schalke, Borussia Dortmund and Bayer Leverkusen all enjoyed fine victories at home over the weekend. And all four have representatives in Goal‘s Team of the Week.

Goalless draws are a real rarity in Germany, but Hertha Berlin and Augsburg were unable to break the deadlock on Saturday and the Bavarians’ goalkeeper, Marwin Hitz, keeps his place between the sticks.

Freiburg’s shoddy start to the season continued as they lost against Borussia Monchengladbach, but Immanuel Hohn impressed at the back. Sokratis caught the eye for BVB in the absence of Mats Hummels and Neven Subotic, Ragnar Klavan is the second Augsburg man to make the cut and Sejad Salihovic was on target twice in Hoffenheim’s 4-4 thriller against Werder Bremen.

On the other side of the Rhein Neckar Arena pitch was Aaron Hunt, who was also on target, Daniel Caligiuri was everywhere for Wolfsburg against Hamburg and Arjen Robben scored both of Bayern’s goals in Saturday’s win over Eintracht Braunschweig.

There are three scorers up front. Jefferson Farfan got two in Schalke’s 3-0 win over Stuttgart, Raffael was the match-winner for Gladbach in the 1-0 win over Freiburg and Heung Son-Min put in one of his best performances yet for Leverkusen, netting twice in the 3-0 win over Nurnberg.
