DOR Vs STU Fantasy Team Probable Playing 11 And Match Report: Injuries expose Borussia Dortmund’s shortcomings as the club fails to compensate for the lack of pivotal names.
For a side of the calibre of Borussia Dortmund to collapse under the brunt of injuries doesn’t augur well. While the side is undoubtedly left devoid of the services of some crucial players, a club of such stature is envisaged to navigate its way around such setbacks.
Unfortunately, the Bundesliga side has failed to do so to slip to three winless results in its last four outings in the league. The results have seen the club plummet down all the way into 5th spot with Bayern Munich opening up a four point window between the two.
In a quandary, Borussia Dortmund know things need to change and change fast for them. Although we are only at the 25% mark of the season, any lead Bayern Munich is accumulating at the moment could end up already deciding the league in the table topper’s favour.
DOR Vs STU Fantasy Probable Winner
For Borussia Dortmund, things aren’t going to get any easier come today. They are up against a Stuttgart side which is yet to lose away from home and should manage to keep that record intact with a draw in this one.

Although his defence has failed to provide him with little support, Stuttgart’s Gregor Kobel has refused to be deterred with him pulling off save after save in every outing.
Despite their horrendous collapse at the back, Borussia Dortmund continue to remain as the second best defensive unit this season. Their recent horrid displays cant disguise the astute performances the club was doling out early in the league, ones which see us entrust players from the side yet again.
We begin with CB Mats Hummels who has the three goals with Emre Can and Dan-Axel Zagadou linking up with owing to their affinity to canter up the pitch.
Scorer of the two goals for his side, Marco Reus makes a foray into our team along with Axel Witsel. The visiting team meanwhile will see the gripping partnership of Tanguy Coulibaly and Wataru Endo be our pick for today with the two players capable of beating players to layup the ball for their counterparts in lethal positions.
He’s yet to really do anything substantial this season but Jadon Sancho did manage to pull off an assist for Giovanni Reyna’s goal the last time around to see us snag both the players for this outing. Stuttgart will meanwhile be represented by the electric Sasa Kalajdzic who has popped up with the three goals and three assists.
Captain And Vice-Captain
Reyna’s goal and four assists see him captain our side while Sancho is the vice-captain.
