Player to Watch – Florian Wirtz

Florian Wirtz was exceptional again for Leverkusen last time out and the creative midfielder scored one and created another goal in their 3-0 win over Frankfurt. Wirtz, who has five goals and six assists in the Bundesliga overall this season, also hit the woodwork with another effort against Die Adler.
