thumbnail Hello,

Goal.com picks out the best talent on show in Germany's top flight over the weekend as the champions marched on, and Schalke missed the chance to close the gap on Bayern Munich

After another fascinating weekend of Bundesliga football, the league is still impossible to call. Bayern Munich may have dropped points at Nurnberg, but actually extended their lead at the top of the table thanks to Schalke's loss to Bayer Leverkusen.

Elsewhere, Borussia Dortmund seem to be the match-winning machine they were last season after striding to a 3-1 win over Greuther Furth, and there were impressive wins for Werder Bremen and Freiburg. As usual, Goal.com is here to pick out the best talent on show in Germany.

In goal, we have Oliver Baumann, who made a string of incredible saves to help Freiburg to a narrow win over Hannover at the AWD Arena.

In front of the 22-year-old shot-stopper stand Dani Carvajal, who put in the sort of performance we have come to expect of him for Leverkusen, his team-mate, Philipp Wollscheid, and Timm Klose, the rock who helped Nurnberg limit Bayern Munich to just one goal.

Another Werkself star to make the grade is Gonzalo Castro. He aided Sami Hyypia's side to control things in the centre of the park. Alongside him in midfield are Mario Gotze, who continued his extraordinary form for Dortmund, Daniel Caligiuri, who was instrumental once more for Freiburg, and Markus Feulner, who scored the equaliser for Nurnberg against Bayern.

The front line is spearheaded by two-goal heros Robert Lewandowski and Alexander Meier, both instrumental for Dortmund and Eintracht Frankfurt respectively, and Kevin De Bruyne, who netted a superb winner for 10-man Werder Bremen against Fortuna Dusseldorf.
