Borussia Dortmund News

Injury Report and Unavailability:

• Edin Terzic has an injury crisis with Dan-Axel Zagadou out for the season.
• He is joined by Marcel Schmelzer and Axel Witsel who won’t be available for few more weeks.
• Starman, Jadon Sancho, is out with a thigh injury as well.
• Mateu Morey and Youssoufa Moukoko are unavailable through muscular and shin injuries respectively.

Expected Changes and Strategy:

• Manuel Akanji’s return means that he will partner Mats Hummels in defence, allowing Emre Can to return to his preferred midfield spot.
• Nico Schulz is likely to make way for Raphael Guerreiro at left-back.
• Marco Reus is fit to start, which means that Giovani Reyna should return to the bench.

Fantasy Football Tips

Captain Options

Erling Braut Haaland – The Norwegian has been linked to transfers throughout the international break which is a testament to how good he has been all season. With 21 goals and 4 assists in 20 starts in the Bundesliga, Haaland has been simply unstoppable this season and Frankfurt will have to do very well to stop him.

Andre Silva – In close contest, Andre Silva too has been excellent this season with 21 goals and 3 assists so far. He had 2 goals and 1 assist against Union Berlin as well and has dispatched 48 shots on target. Silva has been Frankfurt’s go-to man all season and will hope to continue his great form.

Differential Pick

Filip Kostic – Kostic has carried on his form from last season with 14 goal contributions (4 goals and 10 assists) so far in the Bundesliga. He has been very consistent and has contributed to a goal in almost every game this season. Kostic has created an impressive 71 chances and whipped in 52 accurate crosses as well. He has had a lucrative international break with Serbia wherein his goal against Portugal helped his side to a draw. He also grabbed a goal and assist against Union Berlin in their last game.

DOR vs FRK Dream 11 Teams

Goalkeeper – Trapp
Defenders – Akanji, Meunier, N’Dicka, Ilsanker
Midfielders – Bellingham, Kamada, Kostic
Forwards – Haaland (C), Reus, Silva (VC)

Likely Winner:

The DOR vs FRK Today Match Prediction should be an interesting one and one that’s difficult to predict. Both sides have about the same stats in terms of goals scored, goals conceded and wins. But this fixture will shape the race for the Champions League spots and Frankfurt has a great chance to put 7 points between them and 5th place which will be far from ideal for Dortmund who in turn have the opportunity to go within touching distance of the top 4. At the same time, Frankfurt will be happy with a draw as well but that won’t help Dortmund at all.
