Kagawa scored a goal and provided an assist in Saturdayís 5-1 win over Wolfsburg.

Kagawa put two of his three shots on target and played four key passes en route to his excellent performance Saturday in which he netted a goal in the 7th minute and provided an assist two minutes later on an Adrian Ramos goal. He has been receiving significantly more time on the pitch recently, playing the full 90 minutes in five of his last six matches, in all competitions. This bodes well for fantasy owners as Borussia Dortmund continue to chase the title next Saturday against Eintracht Frankfurt.

Kagawa scored a goal on two shots in Saturdayís 3-0 win over Stuttgart.

Kagawa scored a goal on his only shot, in Saturdayís 3-2 win against Werder Bremen.

With six goals and six assists in 20 Bundesliga matches, the Japanese midfielder is yet another goal scoring threat at the disposal of manager Thomas Tuchel. This squad depth will be extremely important, as Borussia Dortmund have seven matches remaining in the month of April due to the Europa League and DFB Pokal. Fantasy owners should monitor Borussia Dortmundís squad as the month progresses to identify matches where Kagawa could start and possibly feature for a full 90 minutes, which he has only done three times in his last 10 competitive matches. Borussia Dortmund host Liverpool this Thursday in the first leg of the Europa League quarterfinals.

Kagawa never really got going in Mainz, failing to get a hold of the game in midfield. He completed some neat passes and had a shot on goal that was chipped just wide but was ultimately not effective enough. He eventually made way for Gonzalo Castro with seven minutes to play.
