thumbnail Hello,

The champions continued their fine form of late with a 3-0 trouncing of Nurnberg on Friday, and four of their number make a place in Goal.com's XI for the weekend

After last week's reintroduction following the winter break, the Bundesliga is back in full swing, and matchday 19 saw yet more pulsating action in Germany's top flight. Borussia Dortmund and Bayern Munich marched on at the top, while Hamburg and Hannover claimed derby wins, and all four are represented in Goal.com's team of the week.

In goal, we have Ron-Robert Zieler of H96, who fended off wave after wave of Wolfsburg attacks at the AWD Arena in Saturday's local derby.

Two BVB players are represented in the back three - Lukasz Piszczek, a constant threat down the right wing, and Mats Hummels, who was his usual composed self as the champions beat Nurnberg 3-0 at home. Meanwhile, Fallou Diagne helped stave off Bayer Leverkusen's in-form attack as Freiburg claimed a credible point.

Another two of Jurgen Klopp's troops man the midfield - Jakub 'Kuba' Blaszczykowski scored two goals in a matter of minutes on Friday, while Ilkay Gundogan barely put a foot wrong in the match. Elsewhere, Juan Arango and Koo Ja-Cheol shone for Borussia Monchengladbach and Augsburg respectively.

The front line all found their names on the scoresheet this weekend. Son Heung-Min starred for Hamburg in the 3-2 derby win over Werder Bremen, Mario Mandzukic justified Jupp Heynckes' faith in him with by playing a leading role in Bayern's win over Stuttgart, and Adam Szalai added another two goals to his tally for the season as Mainz beat Greuther Furth.
