BAY Vs DOR Fantasy Team
Marwin Hitz might just be playing the biggest affair of his tie today. Injury means Borussia Dortmund will turn to him to take over the goal-keeping docket, one he’ll be looking to act as the custodian of and show why he’s deserving of more regular chances.
We have Manuel Akanji link up with him for the impending matchup. With Borussia Dortmund set to struggle in attack given the injuries which have hit them, the side will turn to defence to make life treacherous for their opponents.
It will lead to Akanji being asked to emerge as the mainstay in defence, something the CB is more than capable of doing. Bayern Munich will see fullback Benjamin Pavard line up for us as is customary when he plays given his affinity to keep involving himself in the side’s attacks.
Accompanying him is Nicholas Sule with Bayern Munich in with a solid shout of pulling off a cleansheet today.
Serge Gnabry needed only one match to accrue his first hattrick of the season. The eight goal routing of Schalke saw him register three goals on the day to see him become an instant pick for us from the side.
Partnering up with him is Joshua Kimmich who has the couple of assists in that assist with Leon Goretzka joining up as well after scoring in the tie as well. Thomas Muller was amongst the eight goals as well to see him wrap up the attacking quartet from Bayern Munich for the matchup.
Out for almost an entire season, Marco Reus returns for Borussia Dortmund today. With an extension in his kitty, he’ll be eager to return to the pitch in this colossal affair and show everyone what he’s capable of when fully fit.
There was absolutely no way we were going to let slip of Robert Lewandowksi. He’s in the moment of his career at the moment, a striker who is doing every bit plausible to quench his incredible appetite for goals.
Elsewhere, Borussia Dortmund’s Erling Haaland has had a solid start to the new season as well. He already has the two goals in the two matches to see the club’s striker bring down the curtains on our framework for this one.
