DOR Vs SCH Dream11 Goal-Keeper
The only reason Hoffenheim managed to curb a two match losing spree and pull off a gusty 1-1 draw with Hoffenheim before the break was down to the grit and guile of Schubert. And up infront of a lethal attacking unit, the player will be tested to the fore, a challenge we see him withstanding the test of time to accumulate some solid save points.
DOR Vs SCH Dream11 Defenders
Having scored a measly 33 goals in 25 ties has been a massive downside to Schalke’s sortie this season. Their frugal attacking contingent has lead to the side’s wayward spiral, a predicament which has curbed them from challenging for a spot in the top 4.
Pair this with Borussia Dortmund’s dominance and ability to control play and close down the match and we could easily be in for a cleansheet for the home side. It’s a very plausible narrative, one which will see us repose faith in all of Mats Hummels, Manuel Akanji, Achraf Hakimi and Lukasz Piszczek from Borussia Dortmund for the outing.
