Erling Haaland brought his outstanding Champions League form back to the Bundesliga over the weekend as Dortmund beat Schalke 4-0 on Saturday.

Haaland (8.7) scored two goals against Sevilla in Europe last midweek and helped himself to another two versus Schalke, as Dortmund bounced back from a couple of games without a win in the league.

Another Dortmund star key to the win was Jadon Sancho (8.4), who scored one and assisted another in the fixture against his team's rivals from Gelsenkirchen.

The best performer of the round and the leading player in FootballCritic's Bundesliga Team of the Week is actually Leverkusen's young defender Edmond Tapsoba (9.0)

Not only did he emerge as the saviour to score in the last minute to salvage a 1-1 draw against Augsburg, he also completed a superb 106/117 passes and enjoyed 132 touches of the ball.

These tallies were both higher than any other player in this round of fixtures in Germany.

Bayern were defeated 2-1 by Eintracht Frankurt but Leroy Sane (8.6) deserved to be on the winning team, contributing an assist for the champions' only goal. He also won 12/19 duels.

On the left of the attack is Wolfsburg's Renato Steffen (8.2), who scored two in the impressive 3-0 away win at Arminia Bielefeld.

The central midfield duo consists of Marcel Sabitzer (8.7) and Florian Grillitsch (8.1).

Sabitzer, who has been linked with a move to Tottenham this week, earned a goal and an assist against Hertha.

Two of his RB Leipzig team-mates in Marcel Halstenberg (7.8) and Willi Orban (7.7) feature in defence.

Joining Tapsoba in the centre of the backline is Marvin Friedrich (7.8) of Union Berlin.

Peter Gulacsi (7.9) made four saves for RB Leipzig against Hertha, and features in goal.
