thumbnail Hello,

Goal.com picks out the best talent on show in the Bundesliga from a weekend which saw Bayern Munich and Bayer Leverkusen record big wins

The title race may long be over, but Germany's finest are not letting up, with Dortmund, Bayern Munich and Bayer Leverkusen all recording impressive wins, and Frankfurt, Schalke and Freiburg embroiled in a fascinating battle for the top four. Here, Goal.com salutes the best talent from across the Bundesliga on matchday 30.

In goal, we have Oka Nikolov, who ensured that Frankfurt did not miss Kevin Trapp for the visit, making a string of saves as the Hessians claimed a vital 1-0 win to keep their Champions League hopes alive.

Two of Bayern Munich's stars are among the back line. Jerome Boateng put in one of his finest performances this season as the Bavarians claimed a great 6-1 win over Hannover, while David Alaba set up the opener for his side. The back three is completed by Filip Daems, who scored the only goal of the game in Gladbach's win over Augsburg.

Martin Harnik may not have had the best season for Stuttgart this term, but showed signs of his top form as Stuttgart beat Freiburg 2-1, while Marco Reus overcame a barren run of his own, scoring after 30 seconds in BVB's 2-0 win over Mainz. Rafael van der Vaart got his first double for Hamburg since returning to the club, with Andre Schurrle also getting on the scoresheet twice for Leverkusen.

Stefan Kiessling, often the man to provide for B04, netted a double of his own as they smashed Hoffenheim 5-0, while Mario Gomez and Claudio Pizarro gave Jupp Heynckes a selection headache ahead of Bayern's clash with Barcelona with two goals apiece.
