Bundesliga Fantasy Matchday 30 Expert Picks and Team Reveal

Last modified date

We look ahead to Bundesliga Fantasy Matchday 30. We bring in a regular FFC contributor and Bundesliga Fantasy expert @FPLGunnersaurus. He reveals his team and plans for the new round. He also shares the best defenders, midfielders and forwards to buy this week.

Bundesliga Fantasy Matchday 30 is here so getting ready for the new round could be crucial. Our top picks and expert team reveal could be hugely significant and massive contributing factors in the decisions we have to make in our own teams this week.

Defenders – David Raum (14.4m / 15% TSB / RBL)

Suspended on MD29 expect Raum to come straight back into Leipzig’s starting XI when they travel to Heidenheim on MD30. Dortmund and Leipzig are currently in a battle for that all important fourth UCL spot however results in Europe this week have all but confirmed that the Bundesliga will have a fifth UCL spot available. As such Leipzig just need one more win to secure access into Europe’s premier competition next season.

What I am saying is I would not worry about Leipzig rotation just yet. Opponents Heidenheim’s home form has been indifferent as of late too. They beat Bayern in famous fashion last time at home but that was preceded by two home losses and a draw. Raum has seven assists for the season so far and with Leipzig in free scoring form on the road owners should be in for another decent Raum return.

Maximilian Mittelstädt (9.5m / 49% TSB / VFB)

If at the start of the season someone told me that Mittelstädt would not only be one of Stuttgart’s standout players but also he would find his way back into the German national side I would have called you ‘verrückt’! Even when Mittelstädt is not providing attacking returns he is still hitting double digit fantasy scores. His 12 points on MD29 was his 11th of the season – a remarkable achievement for someone who this time last season was staring down the barrel of relegation with former club Hertha Berlin.

Die Schwaben travel to Bremen to take on a Werder side really struggling towards the end of the season. As consistent as they come and at only 9.5m, still a bargain price for what he provides, make Maxi a priority move in if you currently do not have him penned in for MD30.

Pavel Kadeřábek (7.1m / 2% TSB / TSG)

This is a more of a maverick pick if you are looking for a differential. Kadeřábek has been in good form at least going forward lately (the less said of Hoffenheim’s defending the better) as seen by a goal and two assists in his last two games. A home game against Borussia Mönchengladbach is a nice enough fixture to make it attacking returns in three consecutive games, especially considering how leaky the Gladbach back line can be.

There is also an increased chance of a clean sheet despite my earlier statement. This comes hot off the heels of Gladbach announcing that the attacking trio Honorat, Jordan and Ngoumou all picked up injuries last matchday that will keep them out of this game.

  • Alternatives – Henrichs (14.1m / 32% TSB / RBL) / Nkounkou (10m / 3% TSB / SCF) / Finkgräfe (1.6m / 3% TSB / KOE).

Midfielders – Dani Olmo (15.4m / 16% TSB / RBL)

With rotation fears allayed for one more matchday at least expect boss Marco Rose to field his strongest available side. With Olmo expected to hold his place down he becomes one of my must own assets this coming matchday. In his last four matchdays the Spanish star has returned an average of 12.5 points per game with a top score of 17 points last time out where he scored the winning goal against Wolfsburg. Leipzig have won three on the bounce away from home and against Heidenheim away one would expect them to make that four on the spin.

Those three away wins have also seen Leipzig score four or more so in such rampant away form I want to load up on Leipzig which is why a third of my team will be made up from the RasenBallsport club. It is go big or go home at this stage of the fantasy season. Olmo eases into my Bundesliga Fantasy Matchday 30 top picks.

Florian Kainz (11.5m / 0% TSB / KOE)

This pick could not be any more of a wildcard option. In the battle of the bottom two sides Köln need to beat Darmstadt on MD30 to keep their faint hopes of Bundesliga survival alive. Whilst Darmstadt look all but down and out Die Geißböcke have a chance but will be reliant on Mainz, who are in sensational form, dropping points and on Bochum being dragged back into the dog fight. Club captain Kainz has not scored a goal from open play this season with his three goals all coming from the penalty spot.

With Köln having scored the lowest number of league goals too it is not surprising either that the Austrian has only returned four assists too. That being said Bundesliga Fantasy managers who have been playing the game for a while know what Kainz can do on his day. There were plenty of times last season where he would return 20pts+ hauls and if ever there was a game he needed to show up for then this is it. Darmstadt still sit second worst for expected goals against away from home so with the RheinEnergieStadion rocking the home side and Kainz will not only be looking for that vital victory but to better their goal difference too.

Brajan Gruda (2.7m ON SALE / 4% TSB / M05)

Mainz midfielders are becoming a regular occurrence in my weekly article and for good reason too. They have been a constant source of points in recent weeks such is the form of a club transformed by Bo Henriksen. If you look at the form table over the last six games Mainz are sixth and actually sit above the heavyweights of Bayern Munich. On MD30 Die Nullfünfer travel to Freiburg who are in awful form at home.

You have to go back nearly three months to find the last time they picked up a win on home soil. Since then they have lost three and drawn two. German U21 international Gruda will look to inflict some further misery on home turf for Freiburg and has been in the goals lately. He has scored in back to back wins and has picked up 26 points in Bundesliga Fantasy across those two games. Mainz have actually not won an away game this season but combining their current form with Freiburg’s home form that could very well change on MD30. Whether you go for Gruda, Amiri or Lee a Mainz midfielder again looks like a solid pick once more.

  • Alternatives – Grifo (17.6m / 8% TSB / SCF) / Millot (9.5m ON SALE / 5% TSB / VFB) / Amiri (8.6m / 4% TSB / M05).

Forwards – Deniz Undav (12.9m / 14% TSB / VFB)

The Guinean goal machine Guirassy may be the favoured striking option from Stuttgart but Undav should be under consideration alongside him for MD30. Stuttgart in their battle for second place travel to a woeful Werder Bremen team who have not won since 27th January at the Weserstadion. A loss to Dortmund at home since then was not unexpected but Die Grün-Weißen have also suffered home losses to Wolfsburg and Heidenheim.

Off the back of a 5-0 thumping to newly minted champions Leverkusen things do not look good for Ole Werner’s side. Undav netted again on MD29 and picked up 16 points in a 3-0 home win over Frankfurt. That is now 16 goals for the newly capped national team striker, the most by any German in the league. It is a tough ask to fit him into your squad but one that could pay off if you take the risk.

Michael Gregoritsch (12.5m ON SALE / 1% TSB / SCF)

As noted earlier with the Gruda pick Mainz have not won an away game all season. Whilst Freiburg themselves have not been easy to watch at home Austrian Gregoritsch is in decent fantasy form. In his last five games he has returned double-digit scores on three occasions including an 11 points return in Freiburg’s 1-0 away win over Darmstadt on MD29.

On sale and with a 1.4m saving he could be a good one week target if you then plan to sell him and use that extra cash to target assets from some of the nicer MD31 fixtures. Six goals and four assists is not a seasonal return Gregoritsch would be happy with and with a good home fixture this weekend he will be wanting to get back on the scoresheet once again.

Maximilian Beier (8.6m / 5% TSB / TSG)

Young Beier is my second pick from the Sinsheim club this matchday. As noted in the earlier Kadeřábek pick opponents Gladbach will be playing a weakened eleven given the injuries suffered last matchday. Hoffenheim and Beier could benefit from that against The Foals who boast the third worst expected goals against away record.

Although Beier has not been fire as of late, last netting on MD27 in an away loss to Leverkusen, a game like this presents a perfect opportunity to get back on the scoresheet and add to his 13 league goals. We have seen him do damage at home before – take his 21 points haul at home to Bremen on MD24 as an example, so with a leaky Gladbach defence to target he may inflict maximum damage once more on home turf.

  • Alternatives – Openda (20m / 53% TSB / RBL) / Müller (14m / 1% TSB / FCB) / Burkardt (5.6m / 1% TSB / M05).
