Borussia Dortmund – Hoffenheim

The leader in the German Bundesliga Borussia Dortmund welcomes Hoffenheim in a match from the 21th round. This game is going to be played on Saturday afternoon at the Signal Iduna Park in Dortmund. Let’s have a look.

This season could be really amazing for Borussia Dortmund, if they manage to win again the title in the Bundesliga. Right now Die Borussenare leaders in the league 49 points, having 7 points advantage in front of the 2nd Borussia M’gladbach and the champion Bayern Munich. They have lost just one game this season so far and their record is impressive – 15 wins, 4 draws and 1 loss.

In their last game Lucien Favre’s boys lost two points, doing a 1-1 draw during the visit to Eintracht in Frankfurt. Marco Reus opened the score for BVB, but Eintracht equalised with a goal from Luca Jovic in the 36th minute.

Despite of this draw, Dortmund still have a pretty comfortable advantage at the top of the league. Now they will try to get back on the winning road against Hoffenheim.

Hoffenheim are 8th in the Bundesliga with 29 points won so far. Their record in the league looks like this – 7 wins, 8 draws and 5 losses. In terms of current form, Hoffe’s last five games in the league look like this – one win, three draws and one loss.

In their last game Hoffenheim shared the points with Fortuna Dusseldorf for a 1-1 draw at home. The Croatian international Andrej Kramaric opened the score for Hoffe, but Fortuna equalised with a goal from Rouwen Hennings.

Surely Borussia Dortmund are the favourites against Hoffenheim, especially at Signal Iduna Park. But Hoffe are not a team to be underrestimated. Julian Nagelsmann’s team knows how to play football. Dortmund are favourites, but it won’t be easy.
