The most recent Bundesliga fantasy soccer news from RotoWire.
Fantasy AnalysisNot only did Reus find the back of the net, but he also played the entire 90 minutes of the victory, signalling that he's back at full fitness following the ankle issue that plagued him over the summer. Reus will be a fantasy force when healthy this season.
Fantasy AnalysisAlonso should immediately step into Bayern's strong starting XI, playing the role of an anchor behind the likes of Arjen Robben, Thomas Muller, Mario Gotze, Robert Lewandowski and even Franck Ribery (when fully fit) as well. Alonso made 158 league appearances for Real Madrid in five very successful seasons.
Fantasy AnalysisFollowing the departure of Toni Kroos to Real Madrid and an injury to Javi Martinez, Bayern manager Pep Guardiola has apparently been on the lookout for a replacement holding midfielder. With Real Madrid adding a number of midfield options over the summer, it looks like they won't stand in the way of a move. Either way, should the transfer go through, it would be a shocking piece of business and one that would immediately strengthen Bayern's already formidable squad.
Fantasy AnalysisAlonso, who's being heavily linked to a shock move to Bayern Munich, made 114 appearances for Spain over his international career and scored 16 times. At 33 years old, it's not too surprising to see the central midfielder call it quits, especially after Spain's woeful showing at this summer's World Cup.
Fantasy AnalysisIt was a terrific performance from Kie▀ling and the rest of Leverkusen, who booked their spot into the Champions League group stages with a convincing 7-2 win on aggregate. Kie▀ling, who also scored last weekend in Leverkusen's surprise league win at Borussia Dortmund, appears well on his way to topping his 15-goal haul from last season's Bundesliga campaign, and he'll be looking to make a sizable impact once more in Saturday's clash with Hertha BSC.
Fantasy AnalysisRoma is losing a top player, but one that it should be able to replace. On the other side, Bayern get a consider upgrade in the back after losing Javi Martinez to a torn ACL earlier this month.
Fantasy AnalysisTrapp was absolutely peppered with shots Saturday, but he was well up to the task.
Fantasy AnalysisSeferovic joined Eintracht earlier this month after transferring from La Liga side Real Sociedad. While he struggled to score much in Spain, he may be able to find a few more opportunities in Germany.
Fantasy AnalysisFirmino was one of only four players in the Bundesliga last season to have double-digit goals and assists, which prompted talk of a potential move to Chelsea this summer. The rumors died down relatively quickly, which obviously was great news for Hoffenheim supporters.
Fantasy AnalysisSzalai joined Hoffenheim this summer after transferring from Schalke. He started up front with Roberto Firmino, and the two could be a solid combination this season, making each worthy of fantasy consideration.
