Football Manager 2021 Borussia Dortmund - Tactic | Team Guide | FM21

Borussia Dortmund tactic and team guide for Football Manager 2021. Club vision, tactic, key players, youth prospects and transfers in FM21.


Here is a brief Football Manager 2021 analysis of the Borussia Dortmund squad, tactics, their club structure, relationship any potential managers will have with the board, expectations and possible tactics any FM manager can use.

About the club


Borussia Dortmund are a professional football club that ply their trade in the Bundesliga. The club was founded in 1909 by football players based out of Dortmund. They are the 2nd largest sports club in Germany and are supported globally. 

Dortmund are the 2nd most successful team in Germany with 8 German Championships, 4 DFB Pokals, 6 DFL Supercups, 1 UEFA Champion’s League and 1 UEFA Cup winner’s cup. They have been runners up in the above-mentioned tournaments many times as well. Their fan base is said to be one of the best in the world with the 81,000 Signal Iduna Park stadium almost filling up every time Dortmund play a home game.

Board Expectations


Dortmund came runners up in the Bundesliga in the 2019-2020 season. The requirements of the board should you take over will be;

Football Manager 2021 Borussia Dortmund Club Vision

Football Manager 2021 Borussia Dortmund Board Expectations

    1. Make the top 4 of the Bundesliga (Automatic Qualification into the UCL)

    2. Reach the semi-final of the DFB Pokal.

    3. Make the knockout stages of the UEFA Champion’s League.

Additionally, you will be asked to do plenty of other things but mainly play an attacking, entertaining brand of football and sign young players to match the club philosophy.

Dortmund have excellent training facilities and one of the best youth systems in-game. You will learn to heavily depend on these to meet the club expectations and to compete for titles.

Squad, Formation and Tactical Style


Dortmund are a very attack-minded team and the board requirement is that you play attacking football. A Vertical Tiki Taka tactic should best suit the squad of players and should cater to the board’s needs. You can use a fluid counter-attacking style in tough away games.

    A 4-2-3-1 is probably the best-suited formation to the available squad of players. This also helps them maintain the width and pull defenders wide and use the superior dribbling skills of your wingers to create chances.

A rough example of what your line-up would look like in a 4-2-3-1 formation is as follows;

    Roman Burki as a sweeper keeper.

    Mats Hummels & Manuel Akanji as your 2 Ball Playing central defenders.

    Thomas Meunier & Rafael Guerreiro as the 2 fullbacks. Guerrero can be played as a wingback too. They’re attack-minded in general and should be given instructions to push forward as much as possible.

    Emre Can & Axel Witsel as the 2 central midfielders. The former to be played as a box to box midfielder and the latter as a deep playmaker with defend duty.

    Julian Brandt & Jadon Sancho as the 2 wide attacking midfielders who can also be deployed as inside forwards.

    Marco Reus as the central attacking midfielder in a Shadow Striker role or attacking midfielder role.

    Erling Haaland as a lone forward in an Advanced forward role.

Alternatively, you can go with a 4-3-3 formation if you wish to be a little defensive. There are also players like Thorgan Hazard, Thomas Delaney who are just as good as the players starting and it is just really a case of managerial preference.

Key Players ⭐


    1. Marco Reus


Football Manager 2021 Marco Reus FM21

Reus is one of the best attackers in German football. You should keep him from getting injured, and Reus will contribute with a lot of goals especially in important games. He is also extremely versatile and can play in multiple positions in various roles.

    2. Erling Haaland


Football Manager 2021 Erling Haaland FM21

Although just 20, Erling Haaland is already one of the biggest stars in European football. He is prolific in front of goal and has hit the ground running at Dortmund having scored 19 league goals in just 21 appearances.

    3. Jadon Sancho


Football Manager 2021 Jadon Sancho FM21

Sancho is one of the best young wingers in-game. His dribbling and physical attributes are extraordinary and the winger will only get better with age.

    4. Mats Hummels


Mats Hummels FM21

In a club renowned for its younger players, Hummels provides much-needed experience and is a calm presence at the back. His organizational skills are vital for Dortmund having a successful season.

Weaknesses


1. Many of the players in the squad are prone to injury and a congested fixture list could see important players in the sidelines for many big games.

2. You run the risk of some talents being poached by other clubs especially in search of higher wages.

3. This is a very young squad and the inexperience will show in big matches.

Best Youth Prospects πŸ‘ΆπŸ»


There are a few exciting young prospects in the ranks who have the potential to be some of the best players in the league. A few examples are, 

    1. Jude Bellingham

    2. Giovanni Reyna


Football Manager 2021 Giovanni Reyna FM21

Similar to Pulisic, Giovanni Reyna is said to be the next big star from the US who plays for Dortmund. He can already be a decent backup for most Bundesliga sides and will only get better with time. 

    3. Nmadi Collins


Football Manager 2021 Nmadi Collins FM21

Summary
