In this Fantasy Bundesliga article, we won’t focus on the more obvious picks such as Erling Haaland, Christopher Nkunku and Robert Lewandowski.

Instead, we’ll highlight players with a maximum ownership percentage of 15%, who could offer great value as Matchday 33 differentials.

Luca Netz, Gladbach (Defender, 4.3M, 1%)
Available for just 4.3million, Netz is set to continue at left-back against an Eintracht Frankfurt side who are likely to have tired legs after their Europa League semi-final clash with West Ham.

Benno Schmitz, FC Cologne (Defender, 4.7M, 4%)
After a series of four consecutive victories, FC Köln continues its quest for Europe against Wolfsburg, who have nothing more to play for this season. Schmitz had a very good game against Augsburg last week, scoring 12 points, and he costs just 4.7 million.

Marvin Plattenhardt, Hertha BSC (Defender, 6.1M, 2%)
Four points clear of Stuttgart in the relegation play-off, 15th-placed Hertha enter their next clash with Mainz hoping to secure another season in the top flight. Plattenhardt has been a key man in Hertha’s bid to avoid relegation, having picked up 35 points in the last three games, which saw the capital club pick up seven points.

Marius Wolf, Dortmund (Midfielder, 5.9M, 1%)
Having played at right-back recently, Wolf is tipped to start on the wing against Greuther Fürth, the latter, who has already been relegated. Owned by only 1% of managers, it offers great value as a differential.

Gerrit Holtmann, Bochum (Midfielder, 6.2M, 2%)
Coming off a 12-point run against Borussia Dortmund, Holtmann will play Friday night’s game at home to relegation-threatened Arminia Bielefeld, who are winless in their last nine games. The midfielder is a bit of a rising player with the potential to score really big when he does well, as he showed on Matchday 22 (25 points) and Matchday 14 (20 points).

Patrick Wimmer, Bielefeld (Midfielder, 7M, 6%)
Unlike Bochum, who are safe from relegation, Bielefeld have everything to play for tonight and are desperate to score points to keep hopes of averting the drop. With three goals and eight assists to his name this season, Wimmer is one of the players ‘Die Arminen’ will rely on in terms of attack.

Jonas Hofmann, Gladbach (midfielder, 16.2m, 4%)
Hofmann has been one of Gladbach’s most important players this season, averaging 11 points per game. Last week he bagged a brace and scored 22 points – more than any other player.

Mark Uth, FC Cologne (Forward, 11.4M, 2%)
Uth has amassed 65 points in his last five games, which means he is by far the most in-form player in terms of fantasy production. Still, he belongs to just 2% of managers, and it’s not too late to jump on the bandwagon, as Köln is playing quality for Europe and has two more attractive matches.

Breel Embolo, Gladbach (Forward, 13.4M, 2%)
He may have flown a bit under the radar, but Embolo is actually one of the hottest forwards in the league in terms of fantasy production, having scored 37 points in his last three games.

Patrik Schick, Leverkusen (Forward, 17.2M, 10%)
Schick have scored in their last two games and will want to continue their good form as Leverkusen look to seal a Champions League spot with a win against Hoffenheim.
