Ciro Immobile - Torino

Before I start, let's just clarify this. Immobile is still (technically) under contract with Dortmund and will (most likely) be moving on at the end of the season to Torino. His loan was cut short at Sevilla and he returned to Dortmund briefly before being loaned to Torino. Now with that clarified, we shall begin.

Immobile has been injured since mid-March and remained sidelined throughout April. In his time with Torino, he has scored five goals along with two assists in 12 appearances.

Jakub Blaszczykowski - Fiorentina

After falling out of favor through much of March, Kuba was finally inserted into the lineup as the calendar turned to April. Over the past month, the Polish international appeared in four games, starting once. Although he did not get on the score-sheet, he did create a few chances and pressed forward in attack. It will be interesting to see if Kuba stays in Dortmund with rumors swirling around Henrikh Mkhitaryan possibly leaving this summer.

Pascal Stenzel - SC Freiburg

The young defender has been a consistent starter since arriving in Freiburg, and has helped anchor a backline for a club that hasn't lost since his insertion into the lineup. Stenzel is one of the most instrumental pieces of a Freiburg team that has officially earned promotion to the Bundesliga next season. SC Freiburg are currently leading the 2. Bundesliga by five points with two matches to go.

Jannik Bandowski - 1860 Munich

After almost a whole season without seeing the pitch, Bandowski earned a start for relegation-threatened 1860 Munich in the 2. Bundesliga. Bandowski played 87 minutes, suffering two fouls in a 2-1 loss against cellar-dwellers MSV Duisburg.
