Fantasy Bundesliga

The best Fantasy Bundesliga players for Matchday 4

Fantasy Bundesliga is back after the international break and we’ve all got our Wildcards in play, so here are some of the best picks ahead of Matchday 4.

SIGN UP TO FANTASY BUNDESLIGA AND PICK A TEAM HERE

GOALKEEPERS

Manuel Riemann (5.4m), Phillip Pentke (1.0m)

Maneul Riemann has done a solid job so far this season and fixtures don’t come much better than a home tie against rock-bottom Hertha Berlin. Bochum have been solid at the back so far and will know how important these three points are. Riemann is currently the third highest-scoring goalkeeper in the game with 27 points, while his 14 saves ranks third.

Phillip Pentke is the 1.0m fodder of choice so far this season and holds his place after another solid week on the subs bench.

DEFENDERS 

Alphonso Davies (13.7m), Kevin Mbabu (10.8m), Anderson Lucoqui (6.2m), Niko Giesselmann (3.7m), Joe Scally (2.2m)

Four of the top five highest-scoring defenders so far this season make this squad thanks to good fixtures and great underlying stats.

Niko Giesselemann has secured the left-wing back spot vacated by Christopher Lenz (9.3m) and has scored in his last two games. Union’s home fixture against 17th placed Augsburg, who’ve looked chaotic at the back and clueless going forward so far this season, is a prime fixture to rack up a third double-digit haul in a row. At just 3.7m, you really can’t go too far wrong with this pick. 

Anderson Lucoqui racked up 23 points on his Bundesliga debut, picking up six points for winning at least 15 duels and four points for two goal attempts. Lucoqui was everywhere for Mainz on Matchday 3 and is well-placed to add to this against a Hoffenheim side who’ve conceded lots of chances so far and looked unconvincing at best at the back. 

The highest-scoring defender in the game so far this season, Kevin Mbabu, has scored 35 points without yet registering a goal contribution. He’s grabbed 16 points for duels won, managed 10 open play crosses and Wolfsburg visit a Fürth side who’ve looked very poor at both ends of the pitch. The Swiss right-back was one of the first names on this team sheet.

Alphonso Davies is something of a risky pick after he went off injured against the USA on international duty, but he’s back in training and Julian Nagelsmann really needs him ready for their visit to RB Leizpig. Jesse Marsch’s Leipzig side have failed to impress so far this season and Davies has been one of Bayern’s best players through the opening three Matchdays. I looked at bringing in Raphael Guerreiro (14.1m) for this spot, but Davies being a captaincy option on the Sunday swings the decision in his favour.

Gladbach’s Joe Scally is still in their starting XI due to injury and they have a great defensive fixture at home to Arminia Bielefeld. Despite quite how bad Gladbach have been at points this season, Scally has been one of their strongest players, picking up eight points for goal attempts and 12 points for duels. Whilst he may not be a long term pick, he’s a great option this week at just 2.2m. 

MIDFIELDERS

Leon Goretzka (14.3m), Jonas Hofmann (12.5m), Jude Bellingham (11.6m), Jens Petter Hauge (11.4m), Wooyeong Jeong (4.4m)

This is the first time four out of five of these midfielders have made my picks.

Wooyeong Jeong has been playing up front for Freiburg and got two goals against Stuttgart last time out. Freiburg have been solid so far this season and 4.4m for a midfielder playing OOP, Jeong is a risk that’s worth taking.

Despite interest from Bayern, Jonas Hofmann is still at Gladbach and, along with Scally, has been among their best performers in a terrible start to the season. His last-minute goal in their loss to Union last time out gave him 16 points in Matchday 3 and he’s managed seven shots in just two starts. A visit to Arminia Bielefeld will give Adi Hütter’s new side a much-needed opportunity to get three points. 

Leon Goretzka has managed 10 shots without a goal so far this season and looks set for an explosion at some point. He’s clearly working well under Julian Nagelsmann and is a great option for this week’s visit to an underperforming RBL side. 

Jens Petter Hauge has been arguably the only shining light in a poor Eintracht Frankfurt side so far under Oliver Glasner. The young Norwegian has scored two of his side’s three goals this season and has also managed seven shots. Hosting a defensively-poor Stuttgart side presents a great opportunity for him to add to that tally.

With Giovanni Reyna (12.5m) out injured, Jude Bellingham should have even more license to go forward and continue his brilliant start to the season for Dortmund. He’s fresh from back-to-back double-digit hauls ahead of the visit to Bayer Leverkusen, and his six shots so far this season show he’s becoming a more and more important part of this Dortmund attack.

FORWARDS 

Robert Lewandowski (18.1m), Erling Haaland (17.0m), Wout Weghorst (14.7m)

Three premium forwards make it into the squad this week.

Wout Weghorst scored in the opening day win over Bochum, is on penalties and has managed 11 shots across the first three Matchdays. A visit to Fürth should give him plenty of opportunities to build on a decent start to the 2021/22 season.

The next two forwards are Robert Lewandowski and Erling Haaland.

They’ve scored nearly 20 points more than any other player this season and have also taken the most shots (16 and 18 respectively). It doesn’t matter who they’re playing. Just buy them.

    What wrong with antonio? Nobody captain him wwth

    1. Rocket Raccoon
      • 11 Years
      2 months, 18 days ago

      He’s an injury waiting to happen. But why would anyone captain him over Salah, Ron or Rom?

      1. Pep bites Kun
        • 5 Years
        2 months, 18 days ago

        Not great reasoning. Isn't Lukaku carrying an injury?

        Sept 05: "I'll have a scan of my thigh [before returning to London]. I am struggling with a minor issue for a while. And then I will return to Chelsea."

        1. Rocket Raccoon
          • 11 Years
          2 months, 18 days ago

          He’s been cleared apparently.

          1. Pep bites Kun
            • 5 Years
            2 months, 18 days ago

            He cleared himself? Lukaku himself said he was struggling with the injury. Amazing what a scan can do. Must have been psychosomatic 😉

            So, back to Antonio ..

    2. Pep bites Kun
      • 5 Years
      2 months, 18 days ago

      He's a good cap choice, just a lot of alternative good options this week.

    3. Cruicky
      • 10 Years
      2 months, 18 days ago

      MU (CR7/Bruno), CHE (Lukaku) & LIV (Salah) with better fixtures.

      Moyes also wants to manage his fitness with Int'l break just finished (Jamaica) and Europa coming up midweek.

  2. Konnamoi
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 3 Years
    2 months, 18 days ago

    Sanchez
    TAA, shaw, Livra
    Salah, Bruno, Benrahma, Mahrez,
    Toney, Ings, Antonio

    Steele, Tsimi, Amartey, Brownhill

    0,5m itb, 2ft

    What would you do?

    1. ilikewud
      • 1 Year
      2 months, 18 days ago

      Honestly I would WC this team.

      1. Top Mark.S
        • 4 Years
        2 months, 18 days ago

        May I ask your rank?

    2. BremerHB
      • 4 Years
      2 months, 18 days ago

      Mahrez to Jota/Greenwood/Torres and upgrade one of those 4m defenders.

    3. Daghe Munegu
      • 5 Years
      2 months, 18 days ago

      Bruno Ings Tsimikas to Ronaldo Jota Livramento

      1. Daghe Munegu
        • 5 Years
        2 months, 18 days ago

        Semedo even

      2. Mozumbus
          2 months, 18 days ago

          Livra already there

      3. Cruicky
        • 10 Years
        2 months, 18 days ago

        I wouldn't WC at all. Couple avenues to possibly take.

        1) Mahrez to Greenwood/Mount/Torres/Sarr; Ings to DCL/Jimenez. Then sort out Tsimikas GW5.

        2) Bruno to Greenwood & Ings to Ronaldo, if you want 3 MU.

        3) Mahrez to Jota & Tsimikas to Chelsea (Rudiger/Christensen) or Wolves (Semedo/Marcal) defender, gets you 3 LIV.

        Could even do a number of these transfers for a -4 if feeling frugal, but you have a lot of options. Best of luck.

    4. Crunchie
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 3 Years
      2 months, 18 days ago

      A or D (DCL or Lukaku)

      Depends on your opinion if Ronaldo starts, or comes on for 30 mins.

    5. Clintymints
      • 12 Years
      2 months, 18 days ago

      Dier actually an option? will he retain his spot long term?

      1. Rocket Raccoon
        • 11 Years
        2 months, 18 days ago

        Probably. Him and Romero likely first choice pairing.

    6. FredrikH
      • 9 Years
      2 months, 18 days ago

      Son -> Torres (-4)?

      1. Bam Saka Laca
        • 1 Year
        2 months, 18 days ago

        Yes

        1. Rocket Raccoon
          • 11 Years
          2 months, 18 days ago

          The irony

          1. ilikewud
            • 1 Year
            2 months, 18 days ago

            This

      2. Rocket Raccoon
        • 11 Years
        2 months, 18 days ago

        No. Torres may not start. It’s Pep.

      3. We Go Again
        • 7 Years
        2 months, 18 days ago

        Would rather take my chances with Son playing. If Ferran gets benched you are going to be kicking yourself

    7. Drip Doctor
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 11 Years
      2 months, 18 days ago

      Are people overrating Wolves? We've seen the influence home fixtures have had which would explain their good stats vs Spurs and Utd.

      Looking at their fixtures, i think you'll do well to get 1 cleansheet from 5 away games

      And maybe 3 from 5 home games.

      I think if you get a Semedo, he needs to be in a rotation rather than set and forget. Is he really a pick when Tierney is the same price, Christensen is .1 more.

      1. Rocket Raccoon
        • 11 Years
        2 months, 18 days ago

        Eye test says they are actually doing well, just been unlucky. But personally I’m holding off. Jimi may never be the same player again after that injury.

      2. ilikewud
        • 1 Year
        2 months, 18 days ago

        I'm doubling up at the back. The fixtures are great and they have played very well. I wouldn't touch their attack atm.

      3. Super Saints
        • 5 Years
        2 months, 18 days ago

        Tierney is way worse
        Christensen interests me but has two awful fixtures coming up

      4. Slouch87
        • 6 Years
        2 months, 18 days ago

        Tierney is a great pick for me. Way better points potential

        1. Drip Doctor
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 11 Years
          2 months, 18 days ago

          Agreed

    8. jamesuk
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      2 months, 18 days ago

      Been dicking with this all day. What are your thoughts on this team guys?

      Sanchez (Steele)
      Dias, Reguilon, Semedo (Williams, Liv)
      Greenwood, Grealish, Salah (C), Jota, Ben
      CR7, Antonio (Dennis)

      Want to get exposure to easy runs coming up for Arse and Wolves. Toying with binning Ben for Traore and maybe getting Tierney in too

      1. Slouch87
        • 6 Years
        2 months, 18 days ago

        No TAA 8s an error in my opinion.

      2. Khark
        • 6 Years
        2 months, 18 days ago

        I've binned ben for traore as i feel antonio is enough cover with the hammers going into europe.

        Really not a fan of no TAA but each to their own. Like the rest

      3. StingRay
        • 6 Years
        2 months, 18 days ago

        Why are you going to captain Salah?

        I keep making cases for CR7 & Salah to get the arm band.

        Salah will be fresh, play 90 mins, on pens and against a leaky Leeds Utd defence.

        CR7’s limited mins ( coming on 2nd half possibly ), hasn’t really played with the team, leaky Newcastle defence, euphoria of him being back at Old Trafford .

        1. jamesuk
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          2 months, 18 days ago

          It's a close call. Definitely not easy to overlook CR7 for capt but this GW he isn't guaranteed a start. Just going with the probabilities, Salah wins it for me

          1. StingRay
            • 6 Years
            2 months, 18 days ago

            Thx. I’m edging towards Salah, but CR7 will be there in the 2nd half.

    9. Cammick
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 1 Year
      2 months, 18 days ago

      When does the gw 4 team of the week update?

    10. yanky
      • 11 Years
      2 months, 18 days ago

      best 4.8 def?

      a) Marcal
      b) Coady
      c) White

      other?

      1. BENOIT
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 5 Years
        2 months, 18 days ago

        Ayling? Webster?

        1. yanky
          • 11 Years
          2 months, 18 days ago

          already have ayling veltman

      2. Bam Saka Laca
        • 1 Year
        2 months, 18 days ago

        Dier

        1. yanky
          • 11 Years
          2 months, 18 days ago

          tough fixtures after palace right?

      3. krzys
        • 8 Years
        2 months, 18 days ago

        White

    11. FPL Kaka
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 6 Years
      2 months, 18 days ago

      Has Jiminez been clearer to play tomorrow?

      1. Rocket Raccoon
        • 11 Years
        2 months, 18 days ago

        I don’t think any club is gonna risk playing a player that could lead to a defeat and 3-0 reverse for breaking the rules.

      2. AC/DC AFC
        • 6 Years
        2 months, 18 days ago

        It all remains as clear as mud.

        Well, actually that's not true. They can't play so shouldn't do so...

      3. Ruth_NZ
        • 6 Years
        2 months, 18 days ago

        Yes

      4. Khark
        • 6 Years
        2 months, 18 days ago

        Mexico have withdrawn their complaint.

        He is good to go.

    12. gellinmagellan
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 4 Years
      2 months, 18 days ago

      On a WC - Coady or White?

      1. Bam Saka Laca
        • 1 Year
        2 months, 18 days ago

        White

      2. krzys
        • 8 Years
        2 months, 18 days ago

        White

      3. 11SPECIALONE11
        • 6 Years
        2 months, 18 days ago

        How about Cedric Soures? 4.4 and seems to be first choice at the moment

    13. Super Saints
      • 5 Years
      2 months, 18 days ago

      A. Christensen
      B. Semedo

      1. gellinmagellan
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 4 Years
        2 months, 18 days ago

        A

      2. Crunchie
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 3 Years
        2 months, 18 days ago

        A

      3. Rocket Raccoon
        • 11 Years
        2 months, 18 days ago

        A

      4. Super Saints
        • 5 Years
        2 months, 18 days ago

        Very interesting, thank you all

        1. BENOIT
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 5 Years
          2 months, 18 days ago

          Amazed by that tbh

      5. Carefree Crew
        • 3 Years
        2 months, 18 days ago

        B
        Nailed versus rotation risk with Silva. Better fixtures.
        (Comments in TT presser suggested Silva might play if ban is over turned) Think Christensen played 3 X 90 minutes for Denmark, but I maybe wrong. Potentially if the ban is over turned he may rest Christensen for CL mid week. If not Christensen will get rested to allow Silva minutes at some point with games coming thick & fast you'll need decent sub cover for Christensen. Semedo is set & forget for Wolves long run of decent fixtures.

      thoughts on this WC? i dont know what to do, im not sold on DCL. please help!

      Sanchez Steele

      TAA Shaw Veltman Dier Williams

      Raphina Salah Jota Benrahma Allan

      DCL Ronaldo Antonio

      1. Feanor
        • 12 Years
        2 months, 18 days ago

        I'm getting Lukaku on my WC. So no TAA for me.

      2. yanky
        • 11 Years
        2 months, 18 days ago

        are u gonna play dier past this wk though?

    15. Jdpz
      • 1 Year
      2 months, 18 days ago

      When Firmino back? Buy Jota or Torres?

      1. yanky
        • 11 Years
        2 months, 18 days ago

        jota

      2. Crunchie
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 3 Years
        2 months, 18 days ago

        Nobody know, but it was a hamstring

      3. Rocket Raccoon
        • 11 Years
        2 months, 18 days ago

        Jota will start more games than Torres this season.

    16. Gudjohnsen
      • 4 Years
      2 months, 18 days ago

      What's th logic behind Sá being better than the 4.5 gk?

      1. Feanor
        • 12 Years
        2 months, 18 days ago

        Wolves have very good fixtures

      2. FPL Kaka
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 6 Years
        2 months, 18 days ago

        Yeah their fixture run is out of this world.

        They have also only conceded 3 goals against Spurs, United and Leicester

      3. Super Saints
        • 5 Years
        2 months, 18 days ago

        I cant see them getting anymore clean sheets than Brighton or Watford so don't think its worth 0.5 extra. Bachmann Duffy seems the best value pairing

    17. My neck my back my Saed Kol…
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 6 Years
      2 months, 18 days ago

      Am I the only one considering raya on a wild card?

      1. Slouch87
        • 6 Years
        2 months, 18 days ago

        No

      2. Mo Mane
        • 3 Years
        2 months, 18 days ago

        He's been in my team from the start!

        1. My neck my back my Saed Kol…
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 6 Years
          2 months, 18 days ago

          Nice! Bold shout that early on

          1. Mo Mane
            • 3 Years
            2 months, 18 days ago

            Cheers, My view as he did well last season, they are hard to break down at home, and don't think they will get thumped by 4 goals, with 6 saves that is almost 4 a week without the clean sheets... if he gets anywhere near 150 points at that rate, I am very happy!!!

      3. ilikewud
        • 1 Year
        2 months, 18 days ago

        Played well so far but the fixtures in 3 weeks time are death.

        1. My neck my back my Saed Kol…
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 6 Years
          2 months, 18 days ago

          True but I’m looking for a set and forget on a WC. Saw a decent thread on twitter putting him as the number one option but not many seem to have him

      4. Super Saints
        • 5 Years
        2 months, 18 days ago

        His backup is 4.5 though...

        1. Mo Mane
          • 3 Years
          2 months, 18 days ago

          I have Guaita as Back up, so choosing between their fixtures for maximum return.. that's 9.0M, but better than 5 and 4, especially not until I have played my Bench boost, then I might drop down for the extra cash to a 4.0m non playing keeper.

    18. Firmino
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 6 Years
      2 months, 18 days ago

      If I'm not captaining Ronaldo this GW is it sensible to go for Lukaku instead?

      1. Rocket Raccoon
        • 11 Years
        2 months, 18 days ago

        Villa look weak, so yes.

      2. AC/DC AFC
        • 6 Years
        2 months, 18 days ago

        Defo.

        I'm up for either but think Ronaldo will prevail.

        But home to a Steer keeper Villa is tempting too.

      3. krzys
        • 8 Years
        2 months, 18 days ago

        Definitely!

      Would you sell Bruno for a hit to get Ronaldo?

        Is Chilwell returning to the starting 11 imminent or is Alonso preferred bt Tuchel?

        1. Rocket Raccoon
          • 11 Years
          2 months, 18 days ago

          Not a clue. I really wish I knew. Right back is far easier to predict, so if you’re not doubling up on their full backs, go James instead. If it’s for this week, get Rudiger and upgrade to James next week.

      4. Pep Roulette

        Odegaard safe pick for next 2-3 gameweeks?

          Will probably start all 3 but not sure on returns. Great player but he’s been coming deep a lot

        2. ilikewud
          • 1 Year

          Will safetly get 2-3 points per gameweek.

        Does ronaldo start this week?

        A) oh yes he does

        1) Tsim Barnes Ings to Williams Jota Jim -8
        2) Barnes Ings to Sarr DCL -4
        3) Barnes Ings to Sarr Jim -4

      7. gellinmagellan
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 4 Years
        2 months, 18 days ago

        Which one of the two should I go with on WC? Leaning towards 2 despite the rotation risk.

        1:
        Sanchez
        TAA Shaw Coady/Dier (Duffy Livra)
        Salah Greenwood Jota Ben (Gilmour)
        Antonio Lukaku Jim

        2:
        Sanchez
        TAA Shaw Coady/Dier (Duffy Livra)
        Salah Greenwood Jota Ben Torres
        Antonio Lukaku (Scarlett)

        In both scenarios, plan to do Ben > Raph next week

        1. ilikewud
          • 1 Year
          2 months, 18 days ago

          With Greenwood, Jota, and Torres you really do have to have a certain bench. Will Duffy keep his place? If not, on Liv off the bench isn't enough to support that team IMO.

            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 4 Years
            2 months, 18 days ago

            Duffy can become White

      8. Sgt Frank Drebin
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 5 Years
        2 months, 18 days ago

        Laporte, Duffy, Matip and Van Dijk have got 28 shots in the box in 3 GWs in total so far... Don't even know how to comment it

        1. Sgt Frank Drebin
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 5 Years
          2 months, 18 days ago

          Duffy 8 shots, Laporte and Matip 7 and Van Dijk 6

        2. Sgt Frank Drebin
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 5 Years
          2 months, 18 days ago

          Jimenez has got 1 shot on target from 11 shots inside the box. And you say that Adama can't hit the goal...

          1. Rocket Raccoon
            • 11 Years

            You ok, mate? You seem to be talking to yourself.

        Afternoon all

        On my WC, with a little dilemma

        Plan is next week to get Bamford for Antonio, and Raph for Benrahma for a -4. But doing a -4 after a WC just seems daft

        Would it best to put Raph in now for Benrahma, even though Raph has a worse fixture to save the -4 next week?

        Southampton werent too bad against Man Utd, so could be a low scoring game meaning ive not lost much by putting in Raph in early

        Appreciate your thoughts

        1. AC/DC AFC
          • 6 Years
          2 months, 18 days ago

          It'd be odd to book a hit on a WC.

            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 1 Year
            2 months, 18 days ago

            My thinking too mate

        2. Rocket Raccoon
          • 11 Years
          2 months, 18 days ago

          Maybe get Raph and ensure you have someone like Gray to come off the bench.

            Good point mate, thank you

          I can't imagine what about this season would make you do Antonio > Bamford.
          Once you get past MU fixture WH still have good games - and MU still leak goals.

          I'd get in Raph now. Not move to Bamford next week - and then have 2fts the following week...the way a WC should set you up really.

          1. Red Red Robins
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 1 Year
            2 months, 18 days ago

            Thats a good point, have just put Raph in, but yeah had another look at Hammers fixtures and arent too bad tbh

            Just need a better 1st sub tbh

            1. RogDog_jimmy
              • Fantasy Football Scout Member
              • 1 Year
              2 months, 18 days ago

              sweet - i think that the 4.5 mids/4.0 defenders are a-ok for subs right now. not going to get you much but spending more than that is tough with so many other good options for the starting 11.

              1. Red Red Robins

                • 1 Year
                2 months, 18 days ago

                Yeah i know, not keen on downgrading anyone tbh - my bench players are Allan, Ayling and Liv and happy with them

                Appreciate the reply mate

                  oh you're fine with those 3! good luck!

        4. CapK
            2 months, 18 days ago

            Why Antonio > banf for -4? He’s scoring against anyone and bamford stood run can wait 1 week

            Just do Ben > raph

            1. Red Red Robins
              • Fantasy Football Scout Member
              • 1 Year
              2 months, 18 days ago

              More over thinking mate haha
              Done the Raph one, and see how its goes next week but see your point on Bamford

        5. GoonerByron
          • 10 Years
          2 months, 18 days ago

          Not sure how much value to place on WC here.. Currently on -4 and still might end up with only 10 players..

          A - Start Smith Rowe, Tsimikas 1st sub, if neither play I have 10

          B - Wilson -> Jimenez taking me to a -8

          C - Wildcard, but will likely have 8/11 same starters still

          1. RogDog_jimmy
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 1 Year
            2 months, 18 days ago

            A - if you get neither playing and only have 10 you lose out on maybe 2-6 points (so 6-10 net with the previous hit)

            B - This might be nice to split the difference. The -8 is more like a -6 taking into account 10 starters - so any return gets you close to breaking even. And no return isn't the end of the world.

            C - Wildcard should be about the future - what do the next couple of game weeks look like?

            I feel like B might be a good option - steal a march on Jimenez too

        6. YEAH PITCH!

          Right so I want one of DCL and Jiminez on my WC but one is a small injury and one has this other international ban doubt.

          Who would you say is safer to start?

          1. AC/DC AFC
            • 6 Years

            DCL

          2. RUN DCL
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member

            DCL

          3. F4L
            • 6 Years
            2 months, 18 days ago

            Jimenez can play.

            DCL is fine as well imo, sounded like Rafa was talking about the whole season, not just the past week.

          4. Carefree Crew
            • 3 Years

            DCL. Jiminez hasn't scored yet.
