In a 3-4-3 formation, Boniface leads the attack and was flanked by Arsenal old boy Takuma Asano and Guinea national teamer Serhou Guirassy in the Team of the Week.
Six different clubs have contributed players to the Team of the Week, namely VfB Stuttgart (3), RB Leipzig (3),Bayern Munich (2), Borussia Mönchengladbach, Bayer Leverkusen and Bochum.
Of the eleven players named in the Team of the Week, Boniface was the highest rated player at 9.68, placing first ahead of Guirassy (9.04) and Chris Führich (8.85).
Boniace registered a game-high seven shots against Darmstadt with three on target, made two key passes, won two aerial duels and completed a game-high five dribbles.
