DOR Vs HER Dream11 Team Probable Playing 11 And Match Report: Second placed Borussia Dortmund continue to maintain relevance in the points tally
Although the seven point difference refraining them from moving into first place is looking to be too large a mountain to scour past, Borussia Dortmund is not a side to throw away its weapons without a fight. The side has emerged in a gruelling and tedious title fight all season long, one they still continue to stay in despite Bayern Munich’s unabated march towards the title.
Recovering from their 1-0 defeat to Bayern Munich in rampant manner, the side trounced Paderborn 6-1 to revert to winning ways. The result was yet another testament to the side’s exquisite attacking contingent, an impeccable component which has wiped the floor with defence this season.
And while Borussia Dortmund are outright favourites register a win today, this tie won’t be as easy as their outing with Paderborn. One of the most impressive sides since the league has returned, Hertha Berlin have registered three wins in four matches including a clinical and well rounded 2-0 showing against Augsburg the last time around.
That result took Hertha Berlin all the way into 9th place in the points tally, a showing which will instil much needed momentum in the side ahead of the imminent tie. They’ll serve a stern test to Borussia Dortmund but unfortunately fail to salvage anything from the fixture given their lacklustre defence.

DOR Vs HER Dream11 Picks
Hertha Berlin’s Jarstein is going to be inducted into our side as the goal-keeper for the day’s upcoming fixture. The player has spearheaded his side’s new found perseverance in defence with the goal-keeper’s fight and character helping his side forage three cleansheets in their last three wins.
Borussia Dortmund’s left wingback, Achraf Hakimi was always going to be an instant pick for us for the forthcoming outing. The defender has been one of the most electric wingbacks in Europe this season, a player who has nonchalantly cantered his way towards a staggering 10 assists this season.
The CB pairing of Lukasz Piszczek and Manuel Akanji makes a foray into the side as well with the two players providing tenacious support to the side in their quest of quelling sides from scoring past them.
Another defensive player who has invigorated Borussia Dortmund in their attacking soirees has been Raphael Guerreiro. The right wingback has assiduously worked his way towards the attacking component of the game, a player who has galloped his way into the side’s attacking sorties to pile on a hoard of goals and assists this season.
With four goals, Julian Brandt also join him up while we have an akin duo be ingrained into our setup from the visiting setup. The two players constitute of Per Skjelbred and Marko Grujic, a partnership which made for prudent selection given their ability to maraud their way in both the attacking and defensive side of the team’s gameplan.
Playing his first match in the side’s playing 11 since the league has restarted, Jadon Sancho went onto score a hattrick for Borussia Dortmund. It took his tally up to 17 goals and 16 assists this season to further extend his record as the team’s top scorer in the league.
With 7 goals and 13 assists, Thorgan Hazard will also join him up for the tie while from Hertha Berlin we have their leading scorer Dodi Lukebakio represent us given the 6 goals and 5 assists he’s come up with.
Captain And Vice-Captain
The 17 goals he has will see us make Sancho our captain while Hazard is the vice-captain.
