It is necessary to add some vital players in your fantasy football side who can lend you maximum points.
From Dortmund, J Sancho has been rated really high and the attacking midfielder has already netted 14 goals for his side. With M Reus unavailable, the onus to support J Sancho will be on striker E Haaland who has 9 goals o his name so far and T Hazard who has played the helping hand with 10 assists to his name.
Talking about Schalke, center midfielder Suat Serdar has been phenomenal so far having breached the goals 9 times. He shouldn’t miss out on your today match prediction side. Playing as a left midfielder, Amin Harit will be he helping hand for Serdar as the former has also been among goals with 6 to his name.
Schalke have beaten Dortmund twice in their last six meetings, whereas, Dortmund have had their hands raised only once. However, momentum has shifted in favor of the home side Dortmund who are currently placed second on the points table. Therefore, we are expecting Dortmund to reign supreme in this Ruhr derby.
