The top 11 of March



Frederik Roennow

The Bundesliga played three times in March 2023, from match days 23 to 25. Here is the top 11 of the month.

This is what the top 11 looked like in February

Bayer Leverkusen were the most successful club in March, the Werkself were the only team to win all three games – with a goal difference of 9:4. The biggest surprise of the month is VfL Bochum, who started with a defeat in March, but then landed two important victories and thus scored as many points as FC Bayern Munich.

Incidentally, at the bottom of the March table is 1. FC Köln, which, like Hertha, Stuttgart and Bremen, only scored one point, but has the worst goal difference (1:8).

Here is the top 11 for March.


Frederik Rönnow (1. FC Union Berlin)

The Dane is the backbone of the second-best defense in the league – only conceding a goal in the 1-1 draw in Wolfsburg this month. Otherwise, he proved with several saves in the three matches that he is one of the best goalkeepers in the Bundesliga.


Niklas Sule (BVB)

As in the first leg, Süle was absent from the Revierderby, but the central defender was there in the victories against Leipzig and Cologne – and was an important stability factor against the increasingly strong Saxons, especially against the Red Bulls. Süle even prepared a goal against Effzeh.

Matthijs de Ligt (Bayern Munich)

The Dutchman is the only player from the reigning champions to make the selection. De Ligt proved stronger than fellow side Dayot Upamecano in March and scored his second goal of the season in the win in Stuttgart.

Erhan Masovic (VfL Bochum)

Thanks to two wins, VfL recently climbed over the line – also thanks to the accurate Masovic, who scored in the goalless three in Cologne and against Leipzig. The Serb already has four goals this season.

Jeremie Frimpong (Bayer Leverkusen)

The Werkself are only three points away from sixth place and therefore from Europe. One of the most stable performers is Frimpong, who as a right-back has already scored seven goals this season and set up six more. A terrific rate. The Dutchman was outstanding in the 4-1 win against Hertha.


Emre Can (BVB)

Can symbolizes the Dortmund upswing and the consistency with which BVB is now winning. Played twice in March, scoring against Leipzig and setting up a 2-1 lead against Schalke with a great pass. The team of the new championship leader is currently unthinkable without him.

Exequiel Palacios (Bayer Leverkusen)

The Argentinian kept his nerve in the win against FC Bayern and became the match winner with his two converted penalties. He showed a similarly strong performance against Hertha, where there was no getting past Palacios in central midfield.

Raphael Guerreiro (BVB)

The Portuguese played two games in March – and this as a midfielder. But Guerreiro really thrived there – he has since contributed two goals and three assists. Especially in the 6-1 win against Cologne, where he was involved in the first three goals, the real left-back showed an outstanding performance.

Robert Andrich (Bayer Leverkusen)

Normally at home in defensive midfield, Andrich played in the three against Bayern as a central link in a back three – and was one of the best in the Werkself along with Palacios and Amine Adli. The 28-year-old also showed a good performance against the Old Lady from Berlin.

Antony Losilla (VfL Bochum)

Bochum’s captain, with the club since 2014, was the guarantor for the important victory in Cologne (2-0) with Masovic and keeper Manuel Riemann. The man in front of the Bochum defense was also able to convince with his defensive qualities in the success against Leipzig.


Marco Reus (BVB)

BVB was still missing Reus against Schalke, but he was involved in the other two games against Leipzig and Cologne and showed his value for Borussia with three goals and one assist. In Dortmund’s internal list of top scorers, he overtook legend Michael Zorc.
