Borussia Dortmund were in incessant form in the battering of Dusseldorf on Saturday afternoon, and five of their players qualify for the team of the week.

The offensive quartet of Macro Reus, Jadon Sancho, Julian Brandt and Thorgan Hazard were all utterly irresistible in the 5-0 victory and they are joined by the attacking duo of Lucas Alario of Leverkusen and Sebastian Andersson, who both scored doubles and dominated defences as his teams saw off Koln and Schalke respectively.

In defence, Remy Bensebiani scored an injury-time winning penalty to keep Gladbach top of the table by defeating Bayern Munich, while Sebastian Schonlau was the lynchpin in Paderborn's back line as they recorded a fantastic 1-0 victory in Bremen.

It's testament to Oliver Baumann's performance for Hoffenheim that he was still easily the best goalkeeper of the round despite his team going down 3-1 at RB Leipzig. He made a total of 11 saves and was unlucky to face a Leipzig side in such envious form.
