3 Bundesliga players to watch this weekend
From a prolific Leipzig striker (not that one) to a France's World Cup hero, these are the players to keep an eye on in the Bundesliga his weekend.
With each week that passes, Leipzig should fear losing Timo Werner less and less.
While there is no denying Werner’s class, Schick is proving that he can keep up with the German in terms of scoring rate at least, netting in all of his last three appearances.
Exciting things have been expected of the Czech international since his breakthrough at Sampdoria in 2016, and last summer’s move to the Bundesliga has seen him take a big step towards fulfilling that potential.
Hennings’ goals are the primary reason why Dusseldorf are clinging onto their position just above the Bundesliga’s automatic relegation zone.
Three in his last two appearances have resulted in a win against Schalke and 2-2 draw with Hoffenheim, while his goals tally is the best of all Bundesliga players other than Robert Lewandowski, Timo Werner and Jadon Sancho.
He is particularly strong in the air, ranking third in the division for headed goals, and his impressive conversion rate is crucial for a side that generally plays in a defensive style.
You can tell by watching Pavard that he is naturally a centre-back. He often holds his position just beyond the halfway line and does not feel the need to get involved in the attack when it doesn’t suit.
Yet his forays forward are becoming increasingly frequent and confident. Not only does he overlap down the right-hand side, but he likes to take up central positions inside the opponents’ box, which explains his decent offensive record this season.
It may not be long until the Frenchman’s attacking exploits are remembered as more than just his wonder-goal against Argentina at the 2018 World Cup.
