Bundesliga Team of the Week, Round 15: Bayern and Dortmund enjoy big wins

Philippe Coutinho was the star of the weekend with a hat-trick and two assists.

Bayern were positively scintillating at the weekend, demolishing Werder Bremen 6-1 largely thanks to the efforts of Philippe Coutinho (10), who had a hand in five of the goals - scoring three and setting up another two. His latter two goals, a beautiful lob and a stunning whipped finish, were magnificent. Robert Lewandowski (9.4) was the beneficiary to two assists from the Brazilian, too.

That duo are joined in the forward line by Jadon Sancho (8.9), who scored one and assisted another for Dortmund, the same as team-mate Marco Reus (8.7) who slots in in midfield.

Florian Niederlechner (9) was excellent for Augsburg, setting up three goals, while Diego Demme (8.4) of RB Leipzig completed a quite ridiculous 133/137 attempted passes which was by far the most in the league.

Two more Leipzig boys are in our XI in the full-back positions in the form of Marcel Halstenberg (9.4) and Lukas Klostermann (8.4).

In the centre of defence, Dan-Axel Zagadou (8.4) earned a clean sheet and an assist for Dortmund, and is joined by Sebastiaan Bornauw (8.4) of Koln.

It wasn't a vintage weekend for goalkeepers, but Tomas Koubek (7.1) was the best of an average bunch.
