DOR vs WOL Fantasy Prediction: Wolfsburg stand in with a fair shout of breaching a shaky and wavering Borussia Dortmund citadel.
Losing their final fixture of 2020 to sit with the sole win in their last five matches, Borussia Dortmund know that its going to be a massive task to stem the rot engulfing the club at the moment. Where the goals have vanished up in the smoke for the side, the team’s defence is not doing the club any favours either currently.
Downed 2-1 by Union Berlin in their last outing, for Borussia Dortmund, the two week festive break was a much welcomed one. Not only did it allow the club it focus it attention elsewhere but also accorded the players much needed time to introspect at what has gone so shambolically wrong.
Back after that hiatus, Borussia Dortmund find themselves immediately thrust into the thick of things. The side will be welcoming Wolfsburg today, a fixture which will make for a cumbersome affair for the club.
With the winner of today’s clash nailing its spot down in the top 4, we are going to have a finely poised encounter on our hands. Injuries being welcomed back is a massive shit in the arm for Borussia Dortmund and the returning players should guide the club to the three points.
Marcel and Thorgan are both out with ongoing injury issues.
Maximilian is injured while Pavao has tested positive for COVID for Wolfsburg.

DOR vs WOL Fantasy Prediction
Koen Casteels’ cleansheet the last time he stepped out in the middle saw him ensure his side were able to fortify their slender one goal lead.
Despite Borussia Dortmund shipping in goals at will at the moment, we are still going to be opting for a trio from the club. Its down to the attacking threat of the club’s defenders with the five assists Raphael Guerreiro has been a testament of the narrative.
He’s joined by Mats Hummels who has the three assists with Thomas Meunier completing the trio.
At a time when the goals have gone up in the air for Borussia Dortmund, Giovanni Reyna has been quietly going about his business. He’s scored the three and crafted four, a player who is showing why the club entrusted him.
Josip Brekalo from the visiting team will be the first part of the triad from the club courtesy of its two goals. Its one which also constitutes of Xaver Schlager and Joshua Guilavogui, two names who have controlled the midfield for the club with their ability to turnover possession.
Although he’s only just returned from training, Erling Haaland could find himself right back in the club’s playing 11 as his side scours for a much yearned for him. Three assists for Jadon Sancho were enough to see him feature for us as well.
A staggering 9 goals for Wolfsburg’s Wout Weghorst see him wrap up our team of the day.
