Bundesliga TOTW: Unstoppable Bayer striker Boniface partners Bayern superstar Harry Kane in attackPublished: September 25, 2023
Victor Boniface has been named in Whoscored.com's German Bundesliga Team of the Week on account of his impressive showing for Bayer Leverkusen during their 4-1 hammering of Heidenheim.
The Nigeria international has quickly found his feet since his arrival at the BayArena for a bargain 20 million euros with his brace on Sunday taking his goal involvements for the Black and Reds to an impressive 11 (8 goals, 3 assists) in seven games across all competitions.
Against Heidenheim, Boniface turned past a defender and smashed an effort in to break the deadlock inside nine minutes.
The 22-year-old, down the middle, converted a penalty to give his side a 3-1 lead in the 74th minute.
In a 3-4-3 formation, joining Boniface in a star-studded attack are Bayern Munich's scoring sensation Harry Kane who registered a hat-trick of goals and a brace of assists in Bayern's annihilation of VfL Bochum, and VfB Stuttgart's Serhou Guirassy.
Boniface, Kane and Guirassy are in the form of their lives with the trio scoring 23 goals between them in the new Bundesliga season.
The Super Eagles striker registered a game-high nine shots in his latest outing in the German top flight, completed a game-high four dribbles and made two tackles over the course of 85 minutes.
The Bundesliga Team of the Week is dominated by Bayern Munich who have contributed six players including Kane, Kim Min-jae, Matthijs de Ligt, Leroy Sané, Joshua Kimmich and Kingsley Coman.
