Tip Hoffenheim - Borussia Dortmund
Hoffenheim had a good win in midweek away at Union Berlin. That took them to eight in the Bundesliga, five places and six points behind their opponents in this match, Borussia Dortmund. Hoffenheim desperately needed that victory as they had been beaten in three of their last four league games. All a bit disappointing considering they had won the previous five. Home form has seen Hoffenheim rather inconsistent this season. Three home league games have been won but four lost. Hoffenheim come into this game having no wins in their last three home league games and having conceded ten goals in those matches. If Mainz can put five past them and Augsburg four, what might Borussia Dortmund do? Only Werder Bremen have conceded more home league goals than Hoffenheim.
The away side are third in the table and midweek saw them draw 3-3 at home to league leaders Leipzig. It’s a game they should have won having led 2-0 in the first half and 3-2 in the second. The draw ended a run of four straight league and cup victories. They have only lost one of their last 13 league games and that was away to Bayern Munich. Their last two away league games have both been won with six goals scored. Up against a leaky Hoffenheim defence, Dortmund can get the three points here
