DOR vs SLPG Dream11 : Borussia Dortmund face a tricky away test as Slavia Praha show they are no pushovers in the group
A laughing owner, a team which was all too ready to recognise the enormity of the task which lay infront of them and a group in which they were clubbed alongside Inter Milan, Borussia Dortmund and Barcelona. For Slavia Praha, the 2019-20 edition of the Champions League was going to be anything but a steady and comfortable ride, one where the side were touted to be routed and embarrassed in their travails in Group F.
However, the side were quick to show that diminutiveness, determination, girt, gustiness and resolve takes precedence over everything else in their opening match of the marquee tournamnet. Going to Italy to clash heads against Inter Milan, the side pulled off a stunning and an unprecedented result, one which stemmed from a remarkable display of reslliance and perseverance as they held Inter Milan to a 1-1 draw to pull off an unlikely 1 point from the fixture.
That performance paired with their previous five results will massively galvanise the side ahead of today’s imminent clash against Borussia Dortmund, a match which yet again promises to test their pool of resources to the fore. Having scored 12 goals in their previous three league matches, one which included an 8-0 battering of Vysehard, the side will be quietly confident of putting in another effervescent display today against a Borussia Dortmund side which is on the decline at the moment.
Held to a 0-0 draw in their opening match of the CL, the side were left ruing a missed penalty by Marco Reus, one which could have ended up giving them the entire three points from a colossal fixture. The fallout from that match saw the side unravel in Bundesliga as well, drawing their previous couple of matches to slump as low as 8th in the points tally with their defensive work being cut short to leak goals at will.

Top Goal Scorer
DOR vs SLPG Dream11 Goal-Keeper
Their draw against Antonio Conte’s extremely formidable Inter Milan side was massively imbedded due to the succulent display put on by their custodian in between the sticks. In Ondrej Kolar, Slavia Praha has a sensational goal-keeper, a shot stopper whose ardent ability to pull off some resounding saves is going to be required yet again. In Borussia Dortmund, they are up against a side who rely on building everything in the attacking side of the park, an outfit which will be unsparing in the shots it piles up at Kolar’s goal today.
DOR vs SLPG Dream11 Defenders
If Slavia Praha look to be bleak and paper thin in defence in front of Borussia Dortmund, Borussia Dortmund themselves don’t exude the most of confidence today. There has been a massive exodus of defiance and semblance from the side in the recent few matches, seeing them leak 4 goals in the last two encounters, a precarious set of events which Slavia Praha will be looking to capitalise on come today.
This sees us pick out the bare minimum requisite of three defenders for this impending clash, seeing us make Jan Boril our only pick from Slavia Praha. On the other hand we have gone in for an attacking inclined two man defence from Borussia Dortmund, one which comprises of Achraf Hakimi and Raphael Guerrerio.
DOR vs SLPG Dream11 Midfielders
Just the one pick from Slavia Praha for us in the form of Nicolai Stanciu whilst from the opposition we are getting in an entire trio of picks. Borussia Dortmund can be ruthless and relentless in attack and the side will be looking to go in with the same gameplan for this encounter as well which makes our trivalent holds an extremely important role for the side.
In Julian Brandt, Thomas Delaney and Mahmoud Dahoud, we have opted for a combination of players who can easily intertwine their skill set to deliver a piquant performance and come up with either a goal or assist in between them.
DOR vs SLPG Dream11 Strikers
Time for us to compensate with the attacking picks from Slavia Praha, a side which will look to thrive on the opponents’ defensive problems and lacklustre quality in defence. In Peter Olayinka and Lukas Masopust, the side are imbued with two players who can easily leave Borussia Dortmund in a tussle and go onto canter their way to a hoard of goals.
Jadon Sancho from Borussia Dortmund becomes the last player to come into our side for today’s upcoming clash.
Captain And Vice-Captain
Delaney is being made our side’s captain for this clash while Olayinka is our vice-captain.
