DOR vs HER Dream11 Tips for Borussia Dortmund vs Hertha Berlin Bundesliga Fixtures 13 March


DOR vs HER Dream11: The Berliners travel to the Ruhr Valley to take on Borussia Dortmund in the Bundesliga. Dortmund will be disappointed with the result of Der Klassiker where they lost 4-2 to Bayern Munich going 2-0 up in the first 10 minutes. There was some respite for them though as they progressed to the next stage of the Champions League with a 5-4 aggregate win over Sevilla. As for the away side, Hertha ended a 9-game winless streak with a 2-1 victory over Augsburg last week. This poor run of form has seen them enter a relegation battle but are just clear of 16th place with a 2 point and will look to widen that gap.

Date: 13th March, Saturday
Kick-Off: 11 pm (IST)
Venue: Signal Iduna Park, Dortmund

Bundesliga Table: Dortmund is 6th in the table with Hertha Berlin in 15th place.

Fantasy Football Tips

Captain Options

Erling Haaland – The Norwegian has taken the world by storm this season and has 19 goals and 4 assists in his 19 Bundesliga games this season. Haaland has also scored 4 goals in his last 2 games, against opposition like Bayern Munich and Sevilla. He has 34 shots on target and has a 56% shot conversion rate.

Vladimir Darida – The Czech international is very versatile and can play a number of positions but will play behind the striker pair. He has created 33 chances this season and has 6 assists from it. Darida also has 18 successful dribbles and has whipped in 14 accurate crosses as well.

Differential Pick

Thorgan Hazard – The Belgian international has been granted starts of late with the absence of Sancho and Reyna and will look to secure a starting spot. He bagged an assist against Bayern Munich for Haaland’s second goal as well. He has found starts hard to come by but has a pass accuracy of 85%. Last season he created 70 chances in the Bundesliga and succeeded in 48 attempted dribbles while whipping in 32 accurate crosses. Thorgan Hazard also racked up 13 assists and will look to recreate last season’s form again.

DOR vs HER Dream 11 Teams

Goalkeeper – Hitz
Defenders – Zeefuik, Morey, Schulz, Can
Midfielders – Guendouzi, Darida (VC), Tousart
Forwards – Cordoba, Haaland (C), Hazard

Likely Winner

After a shaky start, Dortmund has found some stability after long-last under Edin Terzic. They are also the second-highest scoring team in the league with 50 goals but have conceded 35 goals in 24 games which is only slightly better than Hertha’s 43 goals conceded so far. The DOR vs HER Today Match Prediction will be a test for Hertha Berlin who has won a game but now have the task of keeping that up which will be tough to do but still quite possible.
