Bundesliga Team of the Week, Round 12: Witsel and Sancho fight back for Dortmund

Koen Casteels (9.6) was magnificent for Wolfsburg this weekend as they won for the first time in seven games against Frankfurt. He made eight saves to deny the home side, who had a huge 17 shots on goal.

Players from four different teams make up the back four, with Joshua Kimmich (8.4), Philipp Max (8), Dayot Upamecano (8), and Sven Bender (8.1) all featuring after solid performances in defence, with the Bayern man sometimes venturing into midfield.

The midfield is solid as well as creative, as Pierre Kunde (9) scored two for Mainz, well Rani Khedira (8.7) assisted a goal for Augsburg as well as making a bunch of important interceptions. Axel Witsel (8.5) was typically combative for Dortmund, but also scored their second goal to see the home side on their way to the miraculous comeback versus Paderborn.

Speaking of Paderborn, Streli Mamba (8.5) scored two to put Dortmund on the ropes, only for Jadon Sancho (8.7) to inspire Lucien Favre's men to a comeback with a goal and assist.

Emile Forsberg (8.6) completes the forward line after scoring a penalty and a beautiful free-kick for RB Leipzig against Koln.
