Dream11 Fantasy Soccer: Borussia Monchengladbach at Eintracht Frankfurt Preview

This article is part of our Dream11 Fantasy Soccer series.

Game Preview

Eintracht Frankfurt and Borussia Monchengladbach enter this game trying to accomplish different things. While the hosts are sitting in the middle of the standings and have set their sights in trying to escape relegation as soon as possible, Monchengladbach remain a bonafide title contender – even if they only have a slight chance to fight for the title while needing other results to go their way. Frankfurt have been inconsistent of late with just two wins in their last five games, and their five-match home form reads W2, D1, L2. Meanwhile, Monchengladbach have lost just one of their last five, including a three-game undefeated streak while playing away (W2, D1).

Recent form:

Frankfurt: W2, D1, L2

Monchengladbach: W2, D2, L1

Probable starting XI:

Frankfurt: Kevin Trapp; Martin Hinteregger, Obite Evan N'Dicka, Almamy Toure; Stefan Ilsanker, Makoto Hasebe, Daichi Kamada, Dominik Kohr, Sebastian Rode; Filip Kostic; Andre Silva

Monchengladbach: Yann Sommer; Nico Elvedi, Matthias Ginter, Stefan Lainer, Oscar Wendt; Jonas Hofmann, Florian Neuhaus, Tobias Strobl; Breel Embolo, Alassane Plea, Marcus Thuram

Top picks:

Alassane Plea, Monchengladbach: Plea has been one of Monchengladbach's most productive players this season, accounting for eight goals and seven assists in 22 appearances (20 starts) during Bundesliga play. He is on pace to surpass the 12 goals he scored in the 2018-19 campaign.

Marcus Thuram, Monchengladbach: Thuram has logged three more appearances than

Top picks:

Alassane Plea, Monchengladbach: Plea has been one of Monchengladbach's most productive players this season, accounting for eight goals and seven assists in 22 appearances (20 starts) during Bundesliga play. He is on pace to surpass the 12 goals he scored in the 2018-19 campaign.

Marcus Thuram, Monchengladbach: Thuram has logged three more appearances than Plea and has not been nearly as effective, but he still accounts for six goals and eight assists in 25 appearances. These two players complement each other very well and could form a deadly duo against Frankfurt's inconsistent defensive unit.

Almamy Toure, Frankfurt: Toure has the ability to get forward with ease, but he will also be able to contribute defensively since his side will probably be operating on a defensive stance most of the contest. He is a good bet to fill the stat sheet on both ends of the pitch.

Captain and vice-captain options:

  1. Marcus Thuram
  2. Alassane Plea
  3. Almamy Toure
  4. Yann Sommer
