WOL Vs DOR Dream11 Team Probable Playing 11 And Match Report: Wolfsburg frugal defence looks to curb a rampant Borussia Dortmund attack.
When Bundesliga was adjudged safe to be restarted amidst the Coronavirus pandemic, one side which knew it needed to settle into its groove instantly was Borussia Dortmund. Thrust into an extremely tricky schedule, the side showed that even the toughest of fixtures cant curb their challenge for the title this season.
Taking no time to find their feet in the league despite the two month layoff, Borussia Dortmund make it five wins in succession with a 4-0 flaying of Schalke. The win was not only vindictive of why they hold a solid chance of snatching the title from Bayern Munich’s grasps but also a testament of the ice cool, rousing brand of attacking football the side has regaled its ardent supporters in.
Blowing apart Schalke with their string of attacking plays, Borussia Dortmund will need to emulate that same showing if they are to keep their speckle free form intact come today. In 6th placed Wolfsburg, they have a dicey opposition infront of them, a side which itself is in rampant form at the moment after extending its unbeaten spree to five the last time around with its 2-1 win over Augsburg
This tie is going to shape out in only one manner. Where Borussia Dortmund will thrust everything into attack right from minute one, Wolfsburg will on the other hand look to bolster a defence that has served them well across the season.
This discourse will see us be in for a closely contested affair, one where we envision Borussia Dortmund squirming their through to another win courtesy of their well endowed attacking contingent.

WOL Vs DOR Dream11 Goal-Keeper
Koen Casteels from Wolfsburg will find a place in our side as the goal-keeper for today. He’s been an epitome of the side’s stern defence, a player who has pulled off save after save to emerge as one of the most exceptional shot stoppers in the league.
WOL Vs DOR Dream11 Defenders
Borussia Dortmund’s measly defence wasn’t the only reason for us to rope in all four defenders from their side for this one. Wolfsburg’s frugal attacking contingent played a major role in our opting for the four defenders from the visiting side with Wolfsburg having scored on a mere 36 occasions this season.
Having kept four cleansheets in their last five outings, Borussia Dortmund will be quietly confident of making it a fifth today when they face off against a dreary attacking unit. This narrative paired with the staggering 10 assists he has this season see us make wingback Achraf Hakimi the first name to grace our side from Borussia Dortmund.
Also, with our narrative revolving around a Borussia Dortmund cleansheet, the trio of Mats Hummels, Lukasz Piszczek and Manuel Akanji will all be inducted into our backline as well.
WOL Vs DOR Dream11 Midfielders
Taking his tally to the 6 goals and 11 assists this season after popping up with the one goal and assist apiece the last time around, Thorgan Hazard was always going to become a must have from Borussia Dortmund. From Wolfsburg on the other hand we’ll be making their right wingback, Renato Steffen our first pick with the player having piled on an astounding 5 goals this season.
He’s going to find company in Xaver Schlager with the CDM playing a quissential role in protecting the side’s backline with his pinch perfect tackles and blocks.
WOL Vs DOR Dream11 Strikers
Jadon Sancho wasn’t in Borussia Dortmund’s playing 11 the last time around but come today’s tie and he looks set to be accorded a play from the onset. He’s the side’s top scorer with 14 goals and 15 assists, numbers which meant we had to make him the first pick from the side.
Scoring twice for the side the last time around to take his tally to 10 goals in a mere two goals, striker Haaland moves in as well from the visiting team for us.
Captain And Vice-Captain
His current form and 10 goals see us make Haaland our side’s captain while Sancho is the vice-captain.
