DOR vs MOB Dream11 MATCH PREVIEW:
After suffering their first ever league defeat this season, Borussia Dortmund will be looking to get back to winning ways when they host Borussia Monchengladbach in the Bundesliga at Westfalenstadion, in Dortmund, North Rhine-Westphalia, on Friday night (IST).
The pressure is on Borussia Dortmund. They won’t be getting a better opportunity to end Bayern’s dominance in the German football. A six points tally separates both the powerhouses of Bundesliga. Not big enough for Munich to lose sleep over.
Before the last match, the Yellow Army was leading the table by nine points. Dortmund had already weathered some daunting fixtures successfully, and so, were out-and-out favourites against Fortuna on the road, perhaps one of the least fancied teams in Germany at the moment.
But Fortuna did a David against the mighty Dortmund, beating them 2-1 and thus became the first team to beat them in Bundesliga this season. The misery was compounded even further as Bayern beat RB Leipzig 1-0 in their match and now sit only six points away from them at the moment.
Lucien Favre’s men must pull their socks up as this is the best opportunity for them to win the ultimate prize in German football. Bayern are weak, are ageing and haven’t bought well in the summer. Also, the injuries have hampered their progress as well. So the luck seems to be favouring Dortmund at the moment and they must take the full advantage of it.
All the talk about the Bundesliga and the title race may well be all about Borussia Dortmund and Bayern Munich at the moment but Borussia Monchengladbach are very much in the mix as they sit at 2nd in the table, ahead of the Bavarian giants on a better goal difference.
The Die Fohlen have made some giant strides under Dieter Hecking in the last two years or so. They finished ninth in the table last season and missed out on the European qualifications by big margins. But this season it looks like they can at least secure a Champions League qualification if their current form and the standing are taken into consideration.
Monchengladbach have lost only three league games this season and none in the last three. They haven’t conceded in the last three league games as well, winning twice in the same period.

DOR vs MOB Dream11 FANTASY TEAM:
Dortmund must be aiming to get back to winning ways and are expected to name an attacking line-up; Paco Alcacer is certainly the name rounding off that particular area.
Reus, Delaney; two of the finest at Westfalenstadoin, while Thorgan will be providing the spark for the visitors.
Akanji and Diallo are almost out of contention with injuries, so we have gone with Piszczek and Schmelzer, while Wendt and Elvedi remain Monchengladbach’s best bet at the back.
Not many changes at the back, but we have Jadon Sancho in the middle along with Witsel.
INDIA FANTASY PREDICTION:
This is a top-of-the-table clash and we are backing a home win for Borussia Dortmund in this match.
