Bundesliga Best Players 21/22

Robert Lewandowski

The 2021/22 Bundesliga has progressed onto the 2nd half of the campaign as we approach the end of the January transfer-window. With the league-season taking a customary international-break our Bundesliga betting experts take a look at the best Bundesliga players 21/22 of the division thus far and also cast a glance at some of the notable new-signings of the January transfer-window.

Bundesliga Best XI

In this section, we have a short profile of, what is in our opinion, the best XI of the current Bundesliga campaign along with their seasonal ratings from WhoScored.com.

Best Bundesliga Goalkeeper : Mark Flekken, SC Freiburg (NED)

Rating: 7.0

flekken

While Bayern has the best defence in the division, our vote goes to Freiburg custodian Mark Flekken. The Dutch goalkeeper has established himself as the first-choice at the club, featuring in 18 of the 20 league-fixtures and conceding just 16 goals while earning 7 clean-sheets, of which 5 have come on the road. His work between the sticks has been an integral part for Freiburg’s strong showing in this Bundesliga campaign.

Top Bundesliga LB : Alphonso Davies, Bayern München (CAN)

Rating: 7.4

davies


Alphonso Davies has become an indispensable piece in the Bayern backline in his meteoric rise over the past few seasons. The Canadian international is not only one of the major attractions amongst this star-studded squad; his outrageous pace on the field makes him one of the icons of the Bundesliga. The 21-year old left-back has produced 4 assists in 15 starts with 5 clean-sheets but a bout of Covid followed by a mild heart-condition will make him unavailable for the upcoming matches.

Best Center Back: Nico Schlotterbeck, SC Freiburg (GER)

Rating: 7.4


After impressing on-loan at Union Berlin last season, Nico Schlotterbeck has instantly become a key figure at the heart of the Freiburg defence. The 22-year old centre-back has started every league-match barring the 2 he missed due to Covid, being part of all their 7 clean-sheets thus far and winning an astonishing 3.1 aerial-battles per game. For a team like Freiburg that relies heavily on defensive-organisation, Schlotterbeck is one the big reasons why they are challenging for a top-4 spot this season.

Top Bundesliga Center Back: Evan Ndicka, Eintracht Frankfurt (FRA)

Rating: 7.1

Eintracht Frankfurt has not really captured the imagination but Evan Ndicka has nevertheless emerged as one of the brightest young defenders in the league. After a quiet start to the campaign, the young centre-back has certainly lifted his form over the past couple of months. The France U21 international has also been a useful player for his team in the opposition penalty-box having produced 2 goals and 2 assists from his 18 appearances this season.

Best RB: Thomas Meunier, Borussia Dortmund (BEL)

Rating: 6.9

Despite being in contention for the Bundesliga title, Borussia Dortmund has been quite mediocre at the back although Thomas Meunier has been their most consistent performer of their backline on both sides of the field. The Dortmund right-back has made 16 starts this season, the most amongst the players of the club, missing out his 4 games only through injury. Also, the Belgian international has scored 2 goals and provided 5 assists besides winning 1.4 aerial-challenges per game.

Best Bundesliga Midfielder: Joshua Kimmich, Bayern München (GER)

Rating: 7.7

Joshua Kimmich is another indispensable cog in the Bayern machine and like his teammate Alphonso Davies, had to spend a spell on the sidelines with Covid as well. Now plying his trade at the heart of midfield, Kimmich has been limited to just 14 starts even though he returned to the side at the turn of the year. The German midfielder has netted 3 goals along with his 5 assists while an 87 % passing-accuracy without conceding a single booking reflects the astonishing efficiency of his performances.

Center Midfielder: Florian Wirtz, Bayer 04 Leverkusen (GER)

)
Rating: 7.4

The new wonder-kid of German football, Florian Wirtz has shown further progress from a breakthrough season last year to cement his position as one of the brightest young stars of the Bundesliga. The teenage-playmaker has matched his tally of 5 goals from last season, having already produced a career-high 9 assists in the current campaign. His consistent performances have unsurprisingly earned him the call-up to the national side and should be a seriou prospect for Leverkusen as long as they can keep hold of him.

Best Left Midfielder: Leroy Sane, Bayern München (GER)

Rating: 7.6

sane

Although he is somewhat of an enigmatic character, there is no question that Leroy Sané is an attacking-winger of phenomenal proportions. After a lukewarm first season with the Bavarian giants, the German international has been an ever-present for Bayern in this one having missed only 1 match thus far, that too due to Covid. The 26-year old has already matched his tally of 6 Bundesliga goals from the previous campaign and also produced 7 assists for his teammates as well.

Top Bundesliga Right Midfielder: Christopher Nkunku, RB Leipzig (FRA)

Rating: 7.5

nkunku-leipzig

RB Leipzig has gone through some turbulent times this season, but that has not prevented Christopher Nkunku from producing scintillating form in front of goal. Having established himself as the leading striker of the side, Nkunku has surpassed his tally for both goals and assists from last season while he was among the top-scorers in the Champions League although Leipzig were knocked out of the competition. As of now, the 24-year old Frenchman has started all 20 Bundesliga matches this season with 9 goals and 11 assists.

Top Bundesliga Forward: Erling Haaland, Borussia Dortmund (NOR)

Rating: 7.9

Bundesliga transfer market

Named as the Bundesliga ‘Player of the Season” last year and UEFA Champions League ‘Forward of the Season’, Erling Haaland is arguably the hottest-property in football at the moment. While injuries have limited him to just 13 league-starts this season he has still delivered an astonishing 16 goals so far which him on-track to exceed his tally from the last campaign. The Norwegian striker has also delivered 10 assists while averaging 4.1 sprints and 1.9 aerials-won per game.

Best Bundesliga Player: Robert Lewandowski, Bayern München (POL) )

Rating: 8.2

lewa bayern

A list of the top Bundesliga performers would simply be incomplete without including Robert Lewandowski, the reigning FIFA & UEFA ‘Men’s Player of the Year’. At 33, the Polish hitman is ageing like fine wine having already netted 23 times in the league this season, keeping him on course to break the record-haul for a single campaign which he set last year. Earlier this month, the Bayer striker notched his 16th Bundesliga hat-trick to reach his outstanding milestone of 300 goals in the top division of Germany.
