FIFA 21: Borussia Dortmund Player Ratings

Find out which of Borussia Dortmund’s players got the highest ratings in FIFA 21.


Borussia Dortmund have become the bridesmaids of the Bundesliga for some time, watching on as Bayern Munich win the Meisterschale for eight consecutive seasons.

Compound this with Bayern winning the DFB Pokal and the UEFA Champions League last year, and you can see why Dortmund will have become envious of the superstar team in Munich.


This article will showcase the highest-rated Borussia Dortmund players, breaking down all of their best attributes and other statistics. At the foot of the page, you can find a list of the full Borussia Dortmund squad in FIFA 21.

Jadon Sancho (87 OVR)

Nationality: English
Best Position: RM
Age: 20
Overall Rating: 87
Skill Moves: Five-Star
Best Attributes: 92 Dribbling, 91 Ball Control, 91 Agility

Jadon Sancho is arguably the most coveted English footballer who isn’t playing the Premier League at the moment.The wide midfielder has been on the radar of Manchester United for a couple of seasons, and for a good reason.

Last season, Sancho was involved in 34 Bundesliga goals, scoring 17 and assisting 17. He is the real deal and Borussia Dortmund’s new poster boy.

Sancho is lightning on the wings, although, his sprint speed and acceleration attributes in FIFA 21 seem underrated compared to the player’s ability in real-life. His best assets are on the ball, with 92 dribbling, 91 ball control, and 91 agility.

Mats Hummels (86 OVR)

Nationality: German
Best Position: CB
Age: 32
Overall Rating: 86
Skill Moves: Three-Star
Best Attributes: 91 Interceptions, 90 Marking, 88 Standing Tackle

Mats Hummels is in the twilight of his career, following numerous successes with Bayern Munich and the German national team.

It’s fitting that Hummels would return to Borussia Dortmund, the team with which he won his first title to bring down the empire that he was subsequently a part of rebuilding. Hummels’ first season back with Dortmund was fairly good, allbeit BVB were unable to win the title.

As a stand-alone entity, Hummels has excellent stats, featuring 91 interceptions, 90 marking, and 88 standing tackle.

The German centre back is perfect if you’re looking for a robust and influential figure along the backline. The concern is his 46 acceleration; if left alone, he will be exploited by quicker players.

Marco Reus (85 OVR)

Nationality: German
Best Position: CAM
Age: 31
Overall Rating: 85
Skill Moves: Four-Star
Best Attributes: 91 Penalties, 89 Volleys, 88 Curve

When we look back at the career of Marco Reus, the phrase ‘what if’ often comes to mind. Reus has dealt with plenty of injuries since joining Borussia Dortmund, which has seen him miss significant chunks of many seasons.

Reus hasn’t played 30 games in the Bundesliga since the 2013/14 season. Despite this, Reus has still been able to produce consistently. Since the move from Borussia Mönchengladbach in 2012, Reus has only failed to score double-digits goals in three campaigns.

While his role may begin to diminish in his 30s, Reus is still a handy FIFA 21 player. An obvious choice for taking spot-kicks with a 91 for his penalties rating, he is also a useful set-piece taker, holding an 88 curve rating.

Reus can be used behind the striker or even as the number nine, depending on the formation and squad.

Erling Håland (84 OVR)

Nationality: Norwegian
Best Position: ST
Age: 20
Overall Rating: 84
Skill Moves: Three-Star
Best Attributes: 93 Shot Power, 91 Strength, 88 Sprint Speed

One of the most exciting footballers to hit the scene is the Norwegian wunderkind, Erling Håland. The 20-year-old enjoyed a rapid first half of last season with Red Bull Salzburg, tearing up the Austrian Bundesliga with 16 goals in 14 appearances.

Following a move to Borussia Dortmund for a relatively cheap fee, £18 million, Håland didn’t waste any time setting the Bundesliga alight. On debut, he scored a second-half hat-trick, which was followed by a brace against Köln and Union Berlin.

Along with Sancho, Håland is one of those players that you will want for your Career Mode squad. His 93 shot power, 91 strength, and 88 sprint speed are the ratings of a player who will rip the fabric of FIFA 21 apart.

Axel Witsel (84 OVR)

Nationality: Belgian
Best Position: CDM
Age: 31
Overall Rating: 84
Skill Moves: Four-Star
Best Attributes: 92 Composure, 90 Short Passing, 85 Long Passing

The leader at the heart of the Borussia Dortmund midfield is Belgian international Axel Witsel. Witsel joined BVB from the now-defunct Tianjin Quanjian FC in 2018.

Having enjoyed stints with Zenit St Petersburg and Benfica, Witsel is a well-travelled player. The Belgian is a very intelligent footballer and superb on the ball, completing 94 per cent of his passes last season.

That kind of composure and ability on the ball is a key factor in FIFA 21, as his attribute ratings showcase: he boasts 92 composure, 90 short passing, and 85 long passing.

Witsel is best deployed in central midfield as a number six, perfect for starting chains of passes and retaining possession.
