With half of the season completed, Bundesliga has produced some mesmerising football, a flurry of young stars and quite a few surprising results with Borussia Dortmund leading the table with 42 points.

Bayern Munich, after the initial struggle, seem to have finally found a rhythm to them with 36 points followed by Borussia Monchengladbach with 33 and RB Leipzig with 31 points, completing the top 4.

Borussia Dortmund have been the team to beat this season with new manager Lucien Favre guiding the side to an impressive start with just a single defeat while winning 13 of their 17 matches.

On the contrary, defending champions Bayern Munich have had a tough start under new manager Niko Kovac but a 5-match winning streak has seen the Bavarian giants leapfrogging all the other clubs to second place.

With just 6 points separating them to current leaders Borussia Dortmund, expect Bayern Munich to come back stronger in the second half of the season.

Here is a look at the best players of the Bundesliga in the 2018-19 season so far:

The Hungarian has also kept 7 clean sheets this season making him the keeper with the most number of clean sheets in Bundesliga so far this season.
