Captain: Erling Haaland

This Dream11 team is a mix of players from both teams, with Dortmund having a slight majority. Haaland is the obvious captain choice, as he is one of the most in-form strikers in the world. Reus is a good vice-captain choice, as he is a creative force for Dortmund and is always a threat to score or create goals.
