The most recent Bundesliga fantasy soccer news from RotoWire.
Fantasy AnalysisHadergjonaj earned his first start of the Bundeliga campaign at right-back in place of Tobias Levels and was able to make an impact on the game by assisting on Dario Lezcano's third team goal of the day and second goal to his name. He could be in line for more starts in the future as Ingolstadt face Eintracht Frankfurt in the DFB Pokal this Tuesday before taking on Mainz 05 this Saturday.
Fantasy AnalysisSuttner assisted on two nearly identical free kicks that curled into the box and foun Almog Cohen for a 6th minute score and Dario Lezcano for a 24 minute lead-doubler. Suttner has stared seven of Ingolstadt's first eight matches and has played all 90 minutes in each of his starts. However, until Ingolstadt begins winning, it's difficult to trust many players on the squad from a fantasy perspective. Ingolstadt face Eintracht Frankfurt in the DFB Pokal this Tuesday before taking on Mainz 05 this Saturday.
Fantasy AnalysisCohen scored the surprise opener for Ingolstadt after a well-taken Markus Suttner free kick found him inside the box, and he tucked his shot into the net. Ingolstadt have been desperate for goals, so Cohen will hope to build on this momentum in Tuesday's DFB Pokal match against Eintracht Frankfurt before taking on Mainz 05 this Saturday.
Fantasy AnalysisLezcano's first goal this season was against Bayern Munich in a mid-September loss, so it only seems fitting that he was able to register two more against another top side in Borussia Dortmund. Ingolstadt have yet to win a match so far this season, so fantasy managers should not get too excited about Lezcano's brace just yet. Ingolstadt face Eintracht Frankfurt in the DFB Pokal this Tuesday before taking on Mainz 05 this Saturday.
Fantasy AnalysisNyland certainly looked the better keeper of the two teams in the first half, keeping Borussia Dortmund off the scoresheet and enjoying a two goal lead. However, as the match wore on, Dortmund took more chances in attack and were eventually able to pull level with Ingolstadt in the closing seconds of the match, erasing most of Nyland's positive fantasy performance. Ingolstadt face Eintracht Frankfurt in the DFB Pokal this Tuesday before taking on Mainz 05 this Saturday.
Fantasy AnalysisWeidenfeller earned the start in place of Roman Burki, who was rested, against an Ingolstadt side that had previously only scored four goals all season. Unfortunately for Weidenfeller, numerous squad injuries and resulting lineup rotations combined with the busy match calendar weakened his side, who allowed Ingolstadt to nearly double their season long goal tally in 90 minutes. He should resume his spot on the bench for Wednesday's DFB Pokal match against Union Berlin and Saturday's Bundesliga fixture against Schalke 04 but is still a competent keeper when called upon despite Saturday's performance.
Fantasy AnalysisPulisic rescued a point at the brink of full time for Dortmund and now boosts his tally to an impressive two goals and three assists in six Bundesliga appearances. After coming on in the 46th minute for Joo-Ho Park, Dortmund seemed to play with new life. Manager Thomas Tuchel will have a hard time opting to start Pulisic on the bench too frequently in the future. Dortmund face Union Berlin this Wednesday in the DFB Pokal before taking on Schalke 04 this Saturday.
Fantasy AnalysisRamos luckily returned to match fitness in time for the clash against Ingolstadt and was able to play the full 90 minutes. Saturday's draw was only his second start and third appearance of the Bundesliga season for Ramos, who has been struggling with injury like many of his teammates. The crowded match schedule and lack of a consistent starting XI appears to be hurting Borussia Dortmund's form recently. Borussisa Dortmund face Union Berlin this Wednesday in the DFB Pokal before taking on Schalke 04 this Saturday.
Fantasy AnalysisAubameyang found the end of Ousmane Dembele's cross with his head to finally put his side on the board after falling behind 2-0 early to Ingolstadt. He has a few other decent chances at goal, but fantasy owners will be satisfied with just the one in a surprisingly close match. Aubameyang has seven goals in as many Bundesliga appearances and should be ready to lead the attack in Saturday's Bundesliga match against Schalke 04. First comes a DFB Pokal matchup against Union Berlin this Wednesday.
Fantasy AnalysisSahin has not made an appearance for Borussia Dortmund yet this season, although his absence is noteworthy due to the impact of numerous injuries and the extra Champions League and DFB Pokal football matches on squad depth. It's unclear yet how long Sahin could be out. Borussia Dortmund face Union Berlin in the DFB Pokal this Wednesday before taking on Schalke 04 this Saturday.
