DOR Vs HOF Dream11 Picks
Where many would be quick to credit Hoffenheim’s attack for their wins in the last couple of gameweek, Oliver Baumann’s worth to the side just can’t go ignored. The goal-keeper has indulged the side in specular performances, ones which have seen him concede just once in the last two encounters.
The calibre and flair of Borussia Dortmund’s defence was eulogised the last time around. Coming across a luscious RB Leipzig defence, the side managed to emerge unscathed from that encounter, a cleansheet which left their opponents in tatters.
Adding to that display is the score of goals and assists the wingback pairing has amassed for the side this season. 10 assist man Achraf Hakimi has been so good that he’s managed to catch the eye of Inter Milan with the Italian side snaring him up for 40 million for the upcoming season.

Erling Haaland has now scored in two matches on the bounce for the home side to take his tally upto the 13 goals to make him the second pick from the side. With 7 goals and 13 assists, Thorgan Hazard will bring an end to our trio of picks from the side.
