Hoffenheim vs Dortmund Prediction & Betting tips
The most interesting game in the Bundesliga on Saturday seems to be between TSG Hoffenheim and Borussia Dortmund. There is plenty of quality on both sides to make it an exciting match.
TSG Hoffenheim had a good first three games of the new season. The club from Baden-Württemberg managed to win twice. One of those victories was a very special one. With a 4-1 victory, Hoffe ended a long winning streak for Bayern Munich. After that victory, a week later it was lost for the first time this season. On a visit to Eintracht Frankfurt, Hoffenheim did not reach the level of a week earlier – they lost 2-1 in Hesse.
So now the confrontation with the strong Borussia Dortmund awaits. “We want to defend aggressively and not let Dortmund come into its game,” coach Sebastian Hoeneß said on Thursday about the battle plan for the upcoming game. The coach did not doubt the will of Andrej Kramaric – who did not make a transfer in the past period – to play for the club. “He is highly motivated,” said Hoeneß. “And when he’s motivated, he usually strikes.”
Borussia Dortmund is on six points after three rounds in this new season, just like Hoffenheim. Der BVB won a home game in a convincing way twice. Borussia Mönchengladbach (3-0) and SC Freiburg (4-0) were left without a chance in Westphalia. But a visit to FC Augsburg went wrong in the second round. In that match, Dortmund itself missed the necessary opportunities, while the home team was a lot more clinical in front of the goal. The result was a 2-0 defeat.
But for Dortmund there is not a single man overboard, as no top team is without a loss of points after three duels. It is a very busy period for the yellow-blacks. From Saturday until the next international break, coach Lucien Favre’s team must not only play at the weekend, but also every midweek. For example, the first group duel in the Champions League awaits next Wednesday. Dortmund starts with an away game in Rome, where Lazio will be the opponent.
