Bundesliga Team of the Week: Shaqiri delivers for Bayern

The Swiss winger scored twice for the Bavarians this weekend and lines up alongside the likes of Dante and Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang in our selection

An exhilerating weekend of Bundesliga action saw 30 goals scored over the course of the nine games as Bayern Munich, Borussia Dortmund and Schalke claimed big wins and Hamburg’s dreadful run of form continued – and there were great performances across Germany.

Taking the gloves in Goal‘s Team of the Week is S04 keeper Ralf Fahrmann, who made a stunning number of saves as Jens Keller’s side claimed a crucial 2-1 win at Bayer Leverkusen.

Two Bayern players feature in our back four: Diego Contento, who impressed on a rare start for the Bavarians and Dante, who scored as his side beat Freiburg 4-0 at home. They are joined by Zdenek Pospech of Mainz, and Javier Pinola, who helped resurgent Nurnberg to yet another win in their bid to survive the drop.

Another Roten star is in midfield, Xherdan Shaqiri, who made the most of his opportunity to impress with two goals. He lines up alongside Karim Bellarabi, who helped Eintracht Braunschweig to a shock win over Hamburg, Mainz youngster Johannes Geis and Roberto Firmino, who scored the final goal as Hoffenheim beat Stuttgart 4-1.

Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang is up front after delivering Borussia Dortmund’s first home win since November with two goals against Frankfurt and is partnered by Dominick Kumbela, who scored a hat-trick for Braunschweig in their incredible win over HSV.
