Captain Options

Erling Haaland – The Norwegian has had a spectacular season with 25 goals and 6 assists in the league. He has created 32 chances, attempted 48 shots on target and succeeded in 61% of his attempted dribbles as well. Haaland has 4 goals and 1 assist in his last 3 games for the club.

Jadon Sancho – Jadon Sancho has had another excellent season with 8 goals and 11 assists so far. He has created 78 chances and succeeded in 74 dribbles in the Bundesliga this season. Sancho has been in excellent form too, picking the man of the match in each of his last 4 games with 4 goals and 5 assists.

Differential Pick

Moussa Diaby – The French international has been an underrated presence in the Bayer Leverkusen attack this season. He has 4 goals and 10 assists in the league so far and will look to end the season on a high. Diaby has created 53 chances, attempted 25 shots on target and succeeded in 57 dribbles. He has also maintained a pass accuracy of 84% so far.

DOR vs LEV Dream 11 Teams

Goalkeeper – Burki
Defenders – Hummels, Piszczek, Wendell, Tah
Midfielders – Sancho (VC), Reyna, Diaby, Wirtz
Forwards – Schick, Haaland (C)

Likely Winner:

Borussia Dortmund have finally found their footing after a difficult start to the season and done well to end it on a high. They are on a winning streak of 7 games, which included a 3-2 win over RB Leipzig in the DFB Pokal finals. In this run, they have scored 23 goals with Sancho and Haaland linking up seamlessly. Leverkusen, on the other hand, have just 1 win from their last 4 games with 2 of their last games ending in a draw. The DOR vs LEV Today Match Prediction should be a straightforward win for Dortmund.
