Hoffenheim and Borussia Dortmund are going to play a soccer game at the Rhein-Neckar Arena in the Bundesliga on Friday.
Hoffenheim, the team playing at home, has won four games in a row after losing their first game of the season. In their last game, they beat Union Berlin 2-0 with goals from Andrej Kramarić and Maximilian Beier. They have 12 points from their first five games, which is their best start in the Bundesliga ever. They are just one point behind the team at the top of the league, Bayern Munich.
Borussia Dortmund, the visiting team, hasn’t lost any games in the league so far. They won their last game against Wolfsburg 1-0 thanks to a goal from Marco Reus. They are one point behind Hoffenheim and are in sixth place in the league. This is the first time they haven’t lost any of their first five games in the Bundesliga since the 2018-19 season.
Now, let’s look at their history when they played against each other. They’ve faced off 32 times since 2008. Borussia Dortmund has won 15 times, Hoffenheim has won 7 times, and they’ve tied 10 times. Borussia Dortmund has been very strong in their recent meetings, winning five out of the last six games. Last season, they won both their home and away games against Hoffenheim, which means they won twice in the same season. In terms of goals scored, Hoffenheim has scored 12 goals in the league so far, while Borussia Dortmund has scored 9. But Borussia Dortmund has a better defense, as they’ve only let in 5 goals, while Hoffenheim has conceded 6.
Borussia Dortmund has also done well when they’ve played at Hoffenheim’s stadium. They’ve won their last three away games there and didn’t let Hoffenheim score in two of those games. Now, for a prediction: Hoffenheim is in great form, scoring 11 goals and only letting in 4 in their last four games. But they haven’t been able to beat Borussia Dortmund in their last six meetings. Borussia Dortmund doesn’t have any key players missing for this game, so they’ll be strong. However, they’ve only scored one goal in their last two games. So, we think this game will be close, and it might end in a 1-1 draw.
For betting tips:
- You could bet on the result being a draw.
- You could also bet on whether there will be more or less than 2.5 goals in the game.
