Dream11 Fantasy Soccer: Borussia Dortmund v. Hertha Berlin Preview

This article is part of our Dream11 Fantasy Soccer series.

Game Preview

Borussia Dortmund are coming off a huge 6-1 win over Paderborn last week, and while that result kept their title chances alive, Lucien Favre's men know they have their backs against the wall since they sit seven points behind Bayern Munich with five games to play. They are clear favorites to win Saturday, but their title pursuit might be all but over. Hertha Berlin, on the other hand, are yet to lose a game since the league resumed last month and enter on a six-game undefeated streak (W3, D3). They are unlikely to pull the upset over Dortmund, but they still represent a capable threat.
