Bundesliga gameweek 34 results:
Without further ado, let’s take a look at our Bundesliga Team of the Week for gameweek 34. We are using the 4-2-4 formation.
Goalkeeper: Oliver Baumann (Hoffenheim)
The German shot-stopper kept an unexpected clean sheet against an attacking Borussia Dortmund side as Hoffenheim shocked the Bundesliga runners-up with a 4-0 win.
Oliver Baumann made the highest number of saves in the game (4) as Hoffenheim finished the season in sixth spot, thereby securing their place in the Europa League qualifiers.
Right-back: Danny da Costa (Eintracht Frankfurt)
The German right-back, who can also play as a wing-back, is one of the most attacking full-backs in the Bundesliga. Danny da Costa was on song against Paderborn in a game which was meaningless for both sides.
The 26-year-old scored his first Bundesliga goal of the season as Frankfurt ended their campaign with a 3-2 win over Paderborn.
Centre-back: Sven Bender (Bayer Leverkusen)
The German defender was at his solid best as Bayer Leverkusen edged out Mainz 1-0.
However, the win was of no use as Borussia Monchengladbach won their game against Hertha Berling and qualified for the Champions League, while Leverkusen have to be content with Europa League football next season.
Besides helping his side keep a clean sheet by keeping it tidy at the back, Sven Bender also completed the highest number of passes in the game (99).
Centre-back: Stefan Posch (Hoffenheim)
The Austrian international was rock-solid as Die Kraichgauer managed a resounding 4-0 victory over Borussia Dortmund.
Stefan Posch, 23, displayed a lot of maturity and manged the second-highest number of interceptions (3) and blocks (1) in the game to thwart any threat from Dortmund’s famed attackers.
Left-back: Christian Gunter (Freiburg)
Christian Gunter, who has been a Freiburg player all his life, had a cracker of a game as his side decimated Schalke 4-0.
The left-back was impressive at both ends of the pitch as he provided two assists and helped his side keep a clean sheet.
Central midfielder: Thomas Muller (Bayern Munich)
The Bayern Munich legend was unstoppable in the last game of the season as his side showed no mercy and thrashed Wolfsburg 4-0.
Thomas Muller, who was on the verge of leaving the club before the season began, scored a goal and provided an assist against Wolfsburg.
Central midfielder: Christian Gentner (Union Berlin)
The two-time Bundesliga winner with Stuttgart and Wolfsburg was one of the vital cogs in a Union Berlin side, who were playing their first-ever Bundesliga season.
Christian Gentner showed his class against Dusseldorf with a goal and an assist as Union Berlin won 3-0 to finish in 11th Spot.
Right-wing: Yuya Osako (Werder Bremen)
Werder Bremen live to fight another day as they prevented direct relegation on a dramatic final gameweek due to their attacking players. However, they still have to win their relegation playoff against the third-placed Bundesliga 2 side to secure their top-flight status next season.
Bremen won 6-1 against a hapless FC Köln side, who had nothing to play for. Japanese international Yuya Osako was on song as he scored a brace and provided one assist.
Left-wing: Kingsley Coman (Bayern Munich)
The Bayern Munich youngster put in another impressive display against Wolfsburg with a goal and an assist as the Bavarians won 4-0.
Kingsley Coman scored four goals and provided as many assists in 24 Bundesliga games this season.
Striker: Timo Werner (RB Leipzig)
Timo Werner, who will soon move to Chelsea, made his final appearance for RB Leipzig memorable by scoring a brace in a 2-1 win over Augsburg, thus becoming the club’s highest-ever goalscorer.
The prolific striker finished second in the Bundesliga Golden Boot race behind Bayern Munich’s Robert Lewandowski.
While Werner netted 28 times, the Bavarian hitman ended the season with 34 league goals to his name.
Striker: Andrej Kramaric (Hoffenheim)
Andrej Kramaric put in a remarkable display by scoring all of Hoffenheim’s goals in their 4-0 rout of Borussia Dortmund.
The striker’s 12 goals in 19 Bundesliga games helped Hoffenheim to finish sixth and book their place for the Europa League qualifiers.
Hoffenheim could have fared better if he was fit throughout the season.
Here’s how our Bundesliga Team of the Week for gameweek 34 would line up.
