thumbnail Hello,

Goal.com salutes the best talent on show after a midweek round of fixtures in Germany's top flight that saw the Bavarians produce another incisive performance

After the weekend's thrilling action, Bundesliga fans were treated to a midweek special which saw Bayern Munich continue their incredible winning streak for the season, and current champions Borussia Dortmund lose further ground on their rivals as they squandered a two-goal lead to draw 3-3 with Eintracht Frankfurt.

Schalke, meanwhile, kept up with their fellow title contenders with a 3-0 win over Mainz, as Stuttgart's appalling start to the season continued as they crashed to a 3-0 home loss to Hoffenheim. And, as ever, Goal.com is here to salute the best performers on show in Germany's top flight.

Diego Benaglio may have ended up on the losing side when Wolfsburg travelled to the Allianz Arena on Tuesday, but the Swiss goalkeeper made a string of fine saves to limit the Bavarians to three goals.

At the back, Andreas Beck was in excellent form as Hoffenheim claimed a much-needed victory at the Mercedes Benz Arena, while Jens Langeneke and Heiko Westermann were both key for Fortuna Dusseldorf and Hamburg respectively. Holger Badstuber completes the defence after another assured showing at left-back.

Marco Hoger came into the Schalke team and performed admirably, while Bastian Schweinsteiger's roaring return from injury continued with another goal from midfield, while Franck Ribery seemed to be approaching he brilliant best for die Roten. Takashi Inui was in a destructive mood as Frankfurt stunned Dortmund, and Szabolcs Huszti continued his flying start to his second spell at Hannover with another incredible midfield showing.

The Hungarians team-mate, Didier Ya Konan, completes the XI for this round of matches after scoring two of his side's four goals against Nurnberg as Mirko Slomka's men climbed to third place in the table.
