Gameweek 6 of Bundesliga 2022-23 will witness RB Leipzig (LEP) crossing swords with Borussia Dortmund (DOR) at the Red Bull Arena Leipzig on Saturday. The match will kick off from 7:30 PM IST.
LEP vs DOR Dream11 prediction for Bundesliga 2022-23
Both sides have made contrasting starts to their Bundesliga 2022-23 campaigns. While Dortmund have begun well and find themselves second in the standings with 12 points from five games, Leipzig have had a stuttering start and are in the 11th spot with five points from as many games.
Leipzig, though, will have the home advantage and they will be hoping that their support can give them the added boost needed to get the better of a confident-looking Dortmund team. Die Borussen, in fact, will be confident after a 3-0 win over Copenhagen in midweek and are likely to just about shade the contest on Saturday based on their current form.
LEP vs DOR Dream11 team tips for Bundesliga 2022-23
Top tip: Best forward
One of the most exciting forwards in Europe at the moment, Christopher Nkunku possesses a massive threat to the opposition defences and is likely to be on the scoresheet against Dortmund. The French striker has netted four times already in the league and has found the back of the net six times across all competitions this season. Capable of linking up and providing assists as well, one must find a spot for him as a forward in your fantasy football team.
Top tip: Best midfielder
Borussia Dortmund legend Marco Reus can be a wise midfield pick for your fantasy team. Technically gifted and great from set-pieces, Reus is Dortmund’s most creative outlet. He’s already scored thrice and provided three assists across competitions this season, making him a valuable addition to your fantasy team.
Top tip: Best defender and goalkeeper
Leipzig’s right-back Benjamin Henrichs could be a wise choice for a defender in your fantasy football team. A versatile defender who can slot in anywhere across the backline, Henrichs offers both security at the back and an attacking presence while going forward. A competitive player, he’s won more than 50 duels in the league and even has an assist, making him a worthwhile investment for your backline.
Leipzig’s goalkeeper Peter Gulacsi will likely be in the thick of the action, given the nature of his team’s fragile defence of late. The Hungarian custodian will, in all probability, be in the line of fire which could lead to multiple saves and, as a result, help you score loads of fantasy points.
LEP vs DOR probable playing XI
LEP playing XI (probable): Gulacsi (GK); Gvardiol, Simakan, Orban, Raum, Henrichs; Kampl, Laimer, Olmo; Werner, Nkunku
DOR playing XI (probable): Meyer (GK); Meunier, Sule, Schlotterbeck, Guerreiro; Bellingham, Ozcan, Reus, Brandt, Hazard; Modeste
