Dortmund poised to extend ‘Borussen derby’ advantage against Monchengladbach in Bundesliga - get fantasy tips
Borussia Dortmund (DOR) gear up for the 99th ‘Borussen derby’ against Borussia Monchengladbach (MOB) in the 2021/22 Bundesliga season at the Borussia-Park on Saturday, September 25. The game will kick off at 10:00 PM IST.
Dortmund have lost just once in their last six league trips to Monchengladbach and will look to extend their advantage in the head-to-head record (40 wins in 98 games). Gladbach, meanwhile, are one point above the relegation zone and need a win to move up the ladder.
MOB vs DOR Dream11 Prediction
Borussia Dortmund’s ambitious start to the 2021/22 Bundesliga season makes them outright favourites to win the contest against Monchengladbach.
Marco Rose returns to Borussia-Park for the first time since switching sides, and given his knowledge of managing Gladbach, Dortmund are likely to take home the bragging rights of the 99th ‘Borussen derby’.
MOB vs DOR Dream11 tips for Bundesliga 2021/22
Top tip: Best forward
It is certainly a no-brainer that fantasy football players should draft in Erling Haaland as the first-choice forward for LEP vs BAY. The Norwegian star has scored seven goals and four assists already this term, and will look to consolidate the tally against Monchengladbach.
Top tip: Best midfielder
Marco Reus starts as the top midfielder for the Borussen derby. The 32-year-old, one of the few players to have featured for both clubs, has a decent record against his former employers (nine goals, seven assists in Bundesliga) and is pegged to continue his strong start to the campaign - four assists in five games.
Top tip: Best defender and goalkeeper
Raphaël Guerreiro, with 139 fantasy football points, will be tasked to keep Gladbach’s Patrick Herrmann in check in the upcoming MOB vs DOR clash. The Portuguese wing-back has contributed two goals this term and will be eager to wreak havoc on the left flank alongside Donyell Malen.
When it comes to goalkeepers, Yann Sommer is the first-choice pick. The Switzerland custodian has conceded nine goals in the league this term, but considering his points tally of 99 points, fantasy football owners are backing the 32-year-old to keep the rampaging Erling Haaland at bay.
MOB vs DOR probable playing XI
LEP probable XI (4-2-3-1): Sommer; Scally, Ginter, Elvedi, Bensebaini; Neuhaus, Zakaria; Hermann, Stindl, Embolo; Plea
BAY probable XI (4-3-3): Kobel; Meunier, Akanji, Hummels, Guerreiro; Bellingham, Witsel, Dahoud; Reus, Haaland, Malen
