thumbnail Hello,

Goal.com picks out the best talent on show in Germany's top flight as the big two clashed and Bayer Leverkusen stole second spot by beating Nurnberg

The 15th matchday of the 2012-13 Bundesliga featured the one we had all been waiting for - Bayern Munich's clash with Borussia Dortmund. The league's finest played out a 1-1 draw, and four players from the Allianz Arena encounter are included in Goal.com's team of the week.

In goal, we have Roman Weidenfeller, who made a string of fine saves at the death to deny Bayern all three points, leading Jupp Heynckes to question why he has continually been ignored by the national side.

Two of the centre-backs from the clash, Dante and Mats Hummels, who both put in composed performances in the heart of defence, make up the back three along with Leon Balogun of Fortuna Dusseldorf, who helped his side to a brilliant 4-0 win over Eintracht Frankfurt.

Eugen Polanski of Mainz makes his first appearance of the season in midfield after helping Thomas Tuchel's men to an excellent 2-1 victory against Hannover, and is joined by Diego, who was in fine form for Wolfsburg. Julian Draxler, Schalke's saviour against Borussia Monchengladbach and Franck Ribery, a constant thorn in BVB's side, complete the middle of the park.

The line is led by Marko Arnautovic, the scorer of a hat-trick for Werder Bremen, Stefan Kiessling, the most prolific stirker in the division this season, and Stefan Reisinger, who got the ball rolling for Dusseldorf against Frankurt on Friday.
