Borussia Dortmund (DOR) welcome a confident Ajax (AJA) side at Westfalenstadion in Matchday 4 of the UEFA Champions League 2021-22 season in the early hours of Thursday, November 4. The match will kick off at 1:30 AM IST.
DOR vs AJA Dream11 prediction
Dortmund were humbled by a clinical Ajax team in Matchday 3 of the competition. Goals from Daley Blind, Sebastian Haller and Antony guided the Dutch team to a 4-0 win, but the Germans have since bounced back and in some style.
Since that defeat in Amsterdam ArenA, Dortmund have scored seven goals in their last three matches while conceding just one. Ajax sure remain a tough opponent to beat, but Dortmund will have the home advantage and a sense of retribution in mind.
DOR vs AJA Dream11 team tips for UEFA Champions League 2021-22
Top tip: Best forward
With Erling Haaland out, Sebastian Haller becomes an automatic pick for this match. The 27-year-old Ajax forward has scored six goals in the Champions League this season and the tally is rightly expected to increase on Thursday.
Top tip: Best midfielder
Considering the current form, Dortmund’s Thorgan Hazard should be an ideal pick for a midfielder. The 28-year-old winger has scored three goals in his last two matches and will be an absolute menace for Daley Blind on the right.
Top tip: Best defender and goalkeeper
Ajax’s Daley Blind is expected to churn out most points on Thursday. The 31-year-old left-back is a good passer and his immaculate reading will help the fantasy managers in terms of interceptions and tackles.
Dortmund’s Gregor Kobel will be the most-picked keeper for this match. Despite playing away from home, Ajax are certainly not expected to sit deep. The Dutch team will surely test the Dortmund defence at times and thus Kobel will come in handy.
DOR vs AJA predicted playing XI
DOR playing XI (probable): Gregor Kobel (goalkeeper); Manuel Akanji, Mats Hummels, Marin Pongracic; Thomas Meunier, Jude Bellingham, Axel Witsel, Marius Wolf; Julian Brandt, Marco Reus (captain), Thorgan Hazard
AJA playing XI (probable): Remko Pasveer (goalkeeper); Noussair Mazraoui, Lisandro Martinez, Jurrien Timber, Daley Blind; Edson Alvarez, Ryan Gravenberch; Steven Berghuis, Antony, Dusan Tadic (captain); Sebastien Haller
