EA Sports activities have simply launched their shortlist of nominees for this 12 months’s FIFA 21 Bundesliga Crew of the Season vote. It’s important to notice that these nominations are based mostly on gamers’ Bundesliga performances solely, so no DFB-Pokal or Champions League performances have been thought of. Out of the 40 nominees for this 12 months’s TOTS, seven Bayern Munich gamers have been included. Members of Die Roten included on this 12 months’s shortlist have been Manuel Neuer, Alphonso Davies, Thomas Müller, Joshua Kimmich, Leon Goretzka, Serge Gnabry, and naturally, Robert Lewandowski.
Serge Gnabry was a shock entry on this 12 months’s nominees. Whereas Gnabry hasn’t been poor, he has solely collected 9 targets and three help on this 12 months’s marketing campaign in comparison with 12 targets and 11 assists final season. This season the German winger took a step again in his play, if something.
Mats Hummels was a reputation I used to be stunned to see on this 12 months’s defender nominations. Mats Hummels holds a deal with success of simply 41.9%, inserting him at 58th within the league on this metric. Borussia Dortmund has conceded 42 instances to date this season, which is nothing to be too impressed over. Baffled to grasp how Hummels made the record over Nico Elvedi and different stand-out defenders this season. As a lot as I like Hummels, this season simply wasn’t his greatest.
Notable Lacking Gamers
Jonas Hofmann was a really notable participant lacking from this 12 months’s shortlist. Whereas I don’t suppose he could be in the very best XI, he positively deserved to be amongst the 40 nominees. Hoffmann was nice for a mediocre Gladbach aspect and contributed 6 targets and 11 assists in simply 21 appearances. His lack of appearances might need been a big think about why he was not nominated, nevertheless, Max Kruse was nominated with simply 19 appearances to date.
Freiburg goalkeeper Florian Müller was one other notable participant lacking from this 12 months’s nominees. On the time of this text, Müller boasts the best save proportion out of any goalkeeper within the Bundesliga with a 71.9% save proportion. Whereas he solely boasts a mediocre 6 clear sheets, he has held Freiburg in lots of matches this season and is a big motive for his or her robust efficiency this 12 months. It’s stunning to see him excluded from the 5 goalkeeper nominees.
You may vote to your greatest 11 gamers of the season on the EA Sports activities web site. As soon as voting is accomplished, these playing cards shall be launched later in Might. Though that is not at all an official Crew of the Season for the Bundesliga, as these votes are largely based mostly chosen based mostly on their potential launched playing cards, moderately than how nicely these gamers performed this season. For instance, Coutinho obtained a Crew of the Season final 12 months for his lower than memorable marketing campaign with Bayern.
