Dortmund – Hoffenheim Match Preview

  • Borussia Dortmund slipped back into unwanted old ways on matchday two as they lost to an underdog, Freiburg, in a 2-1 defeat. That ended their eight-game winning streak in the top-flight, but it will still go down in history as that match saw Dortmund score in a club-record 34th consecutive Bundesliga game!
  • Extending that scoring streak looks highly likely here, as Dortmund have won their previous five Bundesliga home games after scoring in all ten halves of football during that time. However if there’s one team that could throw a spanner in the works it’s Hoffenheim, a side Dortmund have failed to beat in the last three H2Hs at Signal Iduna Park (D2, L1), whilst conceding an average of three goals per fixture in the process.
  • Hoffenheim’s 2-2 draw vs Union Berlin last weekend gave them a ninth straight Bundesliga match without defeat (W4, D5) – the best current unbeaten run in Germany’s top tier. After falling short of the European places by quite some way last season, boss Sebastian Hoeneß will hope his side’s early form can stand them in good stead to make a meaningful challenge for the top-six this term.
  • The visitors started the new league campaign with a thumping 4-0 win at Augsburg, mirroring the scoreline they recorded in their last H2H away win at Dortmund back in June 2020. Another spectacular H2H win isn’t expected here, although don’t discount Hoffenheim if they fall behind – four of their previous seven league games saw them mount a comeback and claim points despite conceding first.
  • Players to watchErling Haaland has scored an incredible 62 goals in 63 competitive games for Dortmund – he netted either side of HT in their last two league wins. Hoffenheim have their own prolific forward in Andrej Kramarić, who scored every goal in their famous 4-0 H2H win here. He has seven career goals in eight games vs Dortmund.
  • Hot stat: Good news for Dortmund. After two rounds, all Bundesliga home favourites are undefeated so far (W7, D4).
