Description: HER Vs FRK Fantasy Team Probable Playing 11 And Match Report: Franklin look to emulate last season’s dominance over Hertha Berlin
Things didn’t quite go their way in their season opener but when Frankfurt step out to take on Hertha Berlin today, the side will be quietly confident of pulling off its first win of the season. Hertha Berlin is a side Franklin have traditionally loved playing against, a team which they ended up battering towards the tail end of last season.
Despite Hertha Berlin winning five clashes as the league wrapped up last season, the side saw one speck in between. It was of the 4-2 defeat at the hand of Frankfurt, a result which at the end of the campaign saw Frankfurt end up above Hertha Berlin in the league.
Also, with Frankfurt failing to get the better of newly promoted Arminia the last time around, the side will be hungry for three points today. After narrowly missing out on the Europa League by just four points last season, Frankfurt know every point will matter if they are to improve on last sortie’s showing in the 2020-21 edition.
HER Vs FRK Fantasy Probable Winner
However, Frankfurt won’t have things easy on the day, They are up against a Hertha Berlin outfit which ended up stunning Werder Bremen in its season opener.
Where the win in itself was an unprecedented result, the 4-1 clobbering they handed out was something not even the most faithful of supporters of Hertha Berlin would have envisaged. It was a dream start for the side, one it will be looking to utilise to wrench out of the impasse it finds itself in when it takes on Frankfurt.
However, we envision Frankfurt accumulating three points today. Its down to their attack, one capable of scoring across the field for the club.

Kevin Trapp ended up as one of the finest goal-keepers in Bundesliga last season. The Frankfurt man ended up with a solid amount of saves, ones which ensured the club’s leaky defence was compensated for.
With a cleansheet unlikely today, not only have we decided to limit our Dream 11 side to the minimum three picks but have opted for all the attackingly inclined names. This decision lead us towards the selection of Peter Pekarik from Hertha Berlin with the CB scoring in the club’s league opener.
Pairing him up is Maximilian Mittelstadt whose unnerving ability to canter his way into the side’s attacking soirees saw him pick up an assist in the tie. Elsewhere, Frankfurt will be represented by wingback Danny da Costa owing to his exceptional ability to make his presence felt in both attack and defence.
Vladimir Darida was crucial to his side getting off to a runaway start this season. The Hertha Berlin man registered two assists against Werder Bremer, ones which saw him square the ball articulately for his counterparts.
Slotting in next to him is Matheus Cunha, two names capable of making the most of a Frankfurt defence which is always vulnerable to conceding. On the other hand, we have the calibre and flair of Daimichi Kamada and Filip Kostic both represent us from Frankfurt, two names who have emerged as the club’s fulcrum in attack.
Andre Silva and Bas Dost combined for Frankfurt’s only goal in the previous clash to rescue a point on the day for the club to make them instant picks for us. Elsewhere, with a goal in the first tie of the season, Dodi Lukebakio will make an advent into our team from the opposition.
Captain And Vice-Captain
His goal in the last affair sees Silva captain our side while Dodi is the vice-captain.
Trapp, Costa, Pekarik, Maximilian, Kamada, Kostic, Cunha, Darida, Silva, Dost, Dodi
