Dream11 Fantasy Soccer: Fortuna Dusseldorf v. Borussia Dortmund Preview

This article is part of our Dream11 Fantasy Soccer series.

Game Preview

Borussia Dortmund sit in second place of the standings with 63 points and are seven points behind Bayern Munich before the start of Saturday's action. With four games left in the schedule, it's hard to imagine them making a real title challenge. Dusseldorf, on the other hand, are 16th with 28 points and need to start winning soon – that's the only way they will avoid playing a relegation play-off. The hosts are 15th in the home standings with just 17 points out of 15 home contests (W4, D5, L6), but they are undefeated in their last four home games (W1, D3). Dortmund, on the other hand, have won their last four away contests and have dropped just four games away from home this season (W8, D3, L4).
