Bundesliga Fantasy Matchday 33 Expert Picks and Team Reveal

Last modified date

To prepare for Matchday 33 of Bundesliga Fantasy, our expert and regular contributor @FPLGunnersaurus reveals his team and discusses the best defenders, midfielders and forwards to buy this week.

Gaining rank is one of the most challenging situations in any Fantasy game. Taking in such expertise could prove hugely significant when it comes to making our own Matchday 33 decisions.

DEFENDERS

David Raum, RB Leipzig (14.7m – 42%)

At the premium end of the Fantasy defensive spectrum, there aren’t many stand-out picks for Matchday 33 – particularly those you could call differential. Raum remains the best of the bunch and, with a favourable fixture against Werder Bremen, he’ll be heavily owned once again this coming weekend.

Raum has excelled with eight goals and two assists but is also racking up huge Fantasy numbers elsewhere. He’s recorded 82 points for won duels and 84 for passes to a shot, demonstrating his importance at both ends of the pitch.

However, this pick comes with caution. He was training individually earlier this week due to a slight muscular problem, so keep your eyes peeled for the Leipzig press conference.

Maximilian Mittelstädt, Stuttgart (9.4m – 13%)

He missed Stuttgart’s 3-1 home win over Bayern Munich due to suspension but should come straight back into the starting XI away at Augsburg.

Of the many surprise packages at Stuttgart this season, it’s probably Maxi who has improved the most, so much so that he’s a likely lock to start as Germany’s left-back at Euro 2024. He may only have two goals and four assists but there have been regular double-digit scores – especially during the rückrunde – thanks to his other routes to points.

Max Finkgräfe, Koln (1.7m – 3%)

It really is a case of ‘do or die’ for Köln in Matchday 33. At home to Union Berlin, they simply must win and hope that other results go their way. They then must win again in Matchday 34 at Heidenheim, whilst praying for similar elsewhere.

If you’re looking for a budget defender, Die Geißböcke’s Finkgräfe is a great option. We know he has attacking potential and takes free-kicks, with his only goal this season coming from one. Their opponents are just about holding onto Bundesliga survival, although they’re not yet out of it either, so this is a real six-pointer.

  • Alternatives: Henrichs (13.7m, 30%, Leipzig), Gosens (12.5m, 10%, Union Berlin), Kadeřábek (6.9m, 3%, Hoffenheim)

MIDFIELDERS

Vincenzo Grifo, Freiburg (17.7m – 9%)

Fantasy managers may be asking why Grifo is the premium pick. It’s simply the lack of alternatives elsewhere.

Many sources predict Jamal Musiala to be rested after having to come off in Bayern’s Champions League loss to Real Madrid and Florian Wirtz is likely to be benched once more should he start in Leverkusen’s Europa Conference League semi-final at home to Roma.

Additionally, Julian Brandt is likely to sit out after Dortmund’s midweek exploits. Who is left, that we know can really turn up on any given day? That would be Freiburg’s Italian maestro.

Matchday 33 marks Freiburg boss Christian Streich’s final home game in charge after 13 seasons at the club so everyone – including Grifo – will want to make sure he’s given a fitting home farewell by beating Heidenheim.

Marco Reus, Dortmund (13.8m – 6%)

The sentimental Matchday 32 transfer was Reus, given his announcement he’ll be leaving his beloved Dortmund. If you chose heart over head and bought him, you were duly rewarded. Two assists and a sublime chipped goal resulted in Reus raking in 23 points, which may have been the sole reason your rank went up and not down.

With Dortmund now Champions League finalists, I expect them to put out a second-string side for their Bundesliga fixtures. Up next on the Reus farewell tour is Mainz away – a fixture they’ve won in six successive seasons.

With uncertainty elsewhere in midfield, Reus may well be the best star midfielder for this Matchday too.

Christoph Baumgartner, Leipzig (13.1m ON SALE – 0%)

With Xavi Simons suspended, Baumgartner will come into Leipzig’s line-up for their final home game of the season against Bremen. The Austrian playmaker is on sale with a 1.5m saving and provides one last chance to scrounge some cash together for a luxury final-day purchase.

Baumgartner may not have been given the game time he wanted after his summer move from Hoffenheim but this fixture presents a perfect opportunity to remind boss Marco Rose of his talents.

  • Alternatives: Stöger (14.1m, 53%, Bochum), Bynoe-Gittens (8.1m, 3%, Dortmund), Hack (8.9m, 8%, Gladbach)

FORWARDS

Andrej Kramarić, Hoffenheim (16.2m – 4%)

Hoffenheim’s Croatian sensation is on a hot streak, having provided an attacking return in five consecutive games. Kramarić has four goals and two assists in this period.

As a result, his Fantasy points have been stacking up with scores of 19, 14 and 14 again. His side travels to already-relegated Darmstadt in the season’s penultimate game. Die Lilien have conceded 11 more goals than any other club, meaning a heavy Hoffenheim victory could be on the cards.

Deniz Undav, Stuttgart (13.8m – 15%)

Start the Stuttgart end-of-season party early! To cap off their incredible season, Stuttgart humbled Bayern Munich last week with a 3-1 victory. Undav was a big part of that, providing an assist for the crucial first goal and returning 15 Fantasy points.

When looking at the form guide, he is ahead of team-mate Serhou Guirassy – not that the Guinean goal machine is suddenly a lesser option.

The German international has 18 goals and 10 assists to his name, looking to hit the 20-goal mark across these final matchdays. Augsburg have just conceded five at Dortmund, so he may well get there in Matchday 33.

Benjamin Šeško, Leipzig (12.7m – 3%)

Similar to Kramarić, another forward also flying right now is Leipzig’s Šeško. The Slovenian has netted in his last five league games and forms one of the league’s deadliest strike forces alongside Lois Openda.

Die Roten Bullen host a Werder Bremen side that has lost three of their last five away games, whilst they themselves have won four of their last five at home. The odds are stacked in Leipzig’s favour and suggest he’ll score in a sixth successive game.

Some more caution, though – Šeško trained individually earlier this week due to a slight infection. Again, watch out for that presser.

  • Alternatives: Guirassy (17.7m, 47%, Stuttgart), Tella (11.2m, 0%, Leverkusen), Beier (8.1m ON SALE, 3%, Hoffenheim)
