Fresh from a 2-0 away win over Union Berlin, TSG Hoffenheim welcome Borussia Dortmund to the PreZero Arena looking to bring a three-game winless home Bundesliga (BL) run to a halt (D1, L2).
Notably, both of Hoffenheim’s previous BL home defeats have seen them hit the net in the final 10 minutes of play and concede four or more goals apiece. The PreZero Arena has been a venue of entertainment this season, as six of Hoffenheim’s eight league games here featured at least three goals, with half of them (4) seeing both teams score. This encounter promises fireworks too, as all seven of the previous top-flight H2H meetings between these two here have witnessed both sides find the net, with four of them producing over 3.5 goals. Also, ‘Die Kraichgauer’ are unbeaten in each of their last six BL H2Hs here, winning only once across those fixtures though (W1, D5). However, Alfred Schreuder’s men will have to improve their defense to keep that run going, as they’ve conceded three or more goals in four of their last seven BL home outings.
As for the visitors, they have racked up a five-game unbeaten BL run ahead of this trip (W3, D2), bagging 2+ match goals in all five of those fixtures. Also, each of their last seven league games has produced three or more goals, with six of those matches featuring over 2.5 second-half goals. Furthermore, six of Dortmund’s eight BL away games this season have produced over 3.5 goals, with five of seeing both teams score. Lucien Favre’s men have gone from five straight BL road trips without a win (D3, L2) to back-to-back away triumphs, both of which have seen them break the deadlock inside the opening 35 minutes and prevent their opponents from scoring in the second half. But, ‘Die Borrusen’ have failed to beat Hoffenheim in all three of their previous top-flight H2Hs (D2, L1), with both of their BL meetings last season ending in a stalemate.
