thumbnail Hello,

Goal.com salutes the best talent on show in the second set of matches in Germany's top flight, as Jupp Heynckes' men smashed Stuttgart 6-1 and Dortmund stumbled at Nurnberg

After just two weekends, the 2012-13 Bundesliga looks to be as exciting and fascinating as last season's edition. Bayern Munich continued their flying start to the new campaign by hitting Stuttgart for six as Borussia Dortmund could only muster a disappointing 1-1 draw at Nurnberg. Werder Bremen got their campaign off and running with a 2-0 win over local rivals Hamburg, while Eintracht Frankfurt thrashed Hoffenheim as their top-flight homecoming continued. And Goal.com is here to point out all of the best performers.

Hamburg may have got off to a poor start, but Rene Adler has been a shrewd acquisition, and a penalty save against Aaron Hunt helped the former Germany goalkeeper to a second straight Team of the Week appearance. In defence, Sebastian Jung played a key role as Frankfurt won 4-0 away at Hoffenheim, and Philipp Wollscheid and Kyriakos Papadopoulos' strikes for Leverkusen and Schalke respectively see them included for their first appearances.

Hunt may have missed one spot kick in Bremen's derby win, but still found the scoresheet. Meanwhile, Pirmin Schwegler's spectacular effort from distance in Frankfurt's demolition of Hoffenheim has earned him a place in our selection. Jermaine Jones scored a superb individual effort as Schalke got their first win of the season, and Toni Kroos pulled all the strings, and almost broke the net with a screamer, as Bayern asserted their dominance over southern rivals Stuttgart.

Thomas Muller is another Roten star to make the cut, while Szabolcs Huszti set up all four goals in Hannover's 4-0 triumph in the Lower Saxony derby against Wolfsburg. Another member of Mirko Slomka's side to shine was Artur Sobiech, who got his third and fourth goals of the season on Sunday.
