ZEN Vs DOR Fantasy Team Probable Playing 11 And Match Report: Borussia Dortmund strive to seal their berth atop of the group with a win against bottom placed Zenit.
Where they would have been dejected after only managing a draw against Lazio the last time around, Borussia Dortmund would have been equally delighted at the identity of their culminating group stage fixture.
Scouring for top spot in Group F of the Champions League, Borussia Dortmund look set to consolidate their currently occupied place come today. Up against last placed Zenit, this looks set to be a canter in the park for the Germans, one which should see them make it four wins out of six in the group.
Where Borussia Dortmund have already started getting preparations underway for the forthcoming round of encounters, Zenit on the other hand have turned their attentions back to domestic business. The club’s stay in the showpiece tournament has been a horrendous time with the side’s lax displays leaving them as the only club bereft of a win in the group.

A complete mismatch, Borussia Dortmund will have little qualms in easing through to the three points come today.

Fantasy Team Picks
Asked to safeguard the worst defensive setup in the group, Zenit’s Mikhail Kerzhakov could have easily decided he had, had enough. However, the Russian refused to down tools so easily, instead waging a lone battle for the club at the back.
Where Borussia Dortmund are the most sublime defensive setup in Group F, Zenit on the other hand have scored the least number of goals this season. This mismatch is only going to end up in one way with the German side registering its second cleansheet on the spin against Zenit.
It sees us opt for the trio of Mats Hummels, Nico Schulz and Mateu Morey from the club.
Scoring at the weekend for Borussia Dortmund, Giovanni Reyna showed why the club has earmarked his as a player for the future. Jadon Sancho is slowly starting to come into his own in the Champions League with his two goals alluding towards his selection.
Jude Bellingham will complete the trio of picks from the side while the Russians see the versatile and indomitable duo of Malcolm and Wilmar Barrios represent us for today.
Zenit’s top scorer in the tournament with the one goal and one assist, Artem Dzyuba will complete the set of picks from the club. The opposition elsewhere will see Marco Reus be inducted in our team for the impending showdown.
Captain And Vice-Captain
Sancho’s two goals see him captain our side while Reyna is the vice-captain.
Mikhail, Morey, Mats, Schulz, Reyna, Sancho, Bellingham, Malcolm, Barrios, Reus, Artem
