In-form Borussia Dortmund challenging for the title

Borussia Dortmund are set to visit Hoffenheim for this Friday’s German Bundesliga fixture. Dortmund are one of the Bundesliga’s in-form teams at the moment. They will be aiming to earn all three points in this Friday’s game to keep themselves hot on the heels of league-leaders RB Leipzig. They currently trail Leipzig by just four points. 

We feel it will be tough to deny Dortmund all three points in this game. Lucien Favre’s side are undefeated in each of their last five games, of which they’ve won three. Furthermore, Dortmund are undefeated in 12 of their last 13 Bundesliga games. 

Dortmund were finding it difficult to earn wins away from home at the beginning of the season. However, in recent weeks, they have rectified their poor away form. Dortmund have now won each of their last two Bundesliga away games. We feel it is difficult to expect anything but another Dortmund win in Friday’s game. 

Hoffenheim have been struggling to find form of late 

As well as an in-form Dortmund side, Hoffenheim will have to overcome their own inconsistent form in Friday’s game. Hoffenheim have won just one of their last five Bundesliga games. They have lost three of their last five Bundesliga fixtures. 

Hoffenheim’s Rhein-Neckar-Arena hasn’t exactly been made into a fortress this season. They have lost four of their eight Bundesliga home games thus far. They have also failed to win each of their last three Bundesliga home games, losing their last two. 

Hoffenheim’s poor home form doesn’t bode well for them ahead of Friday’s difficult fixture. Dortmund have lost just two of their eight Bundesliga away games. We feel Hoffenheim are likely to struggle against a tough Dortmund side. 

Goals on the cards

We also feel this Friday’s fixture is likely to see plenty of goals scored. Dortmund have been no strangers to high-scoring games of late. There have been over 2.5 goals scored in each of Dortmund’s last seven Bundesliga games. Furthermore, seven of Dortmund’s eight Bundesliga away games have also seen over 2.5 goals scored. Similarly, Hoffenheim have also seen plenty of high-scoring games recently. Six of Hoffenheim’s last eight Bundesliga games have seen over 2.5 goals scored. Six of Hoffenheim’s eight Bundesliga home games this season have also seen over 2.5 goals scored. 

Hoffenheim have currently got the worst defensive record in the top half of the Bundesliga table. They have conceded 27 goals in their 16 games. This is at least five more goals than any other team in the top half of the table. Hoffenheim also have the Bundesliga’s second-worst home defensive record, conceding 18 home goals. They will struggle to keep free-scoring Dortmund quiet this Friday. 

However, Dortmund haven’t been very solid at the back away from home this season. They have the worst away defensive record in the top half of the Bundesliga table at present, conceding 13 goals in eight away games. So we think a high-scoring game is very much on the cards here, with Dortmund to come out on top. Dortmund have scored at least three goals in their last three Bundesliga games. Meanwhile, Hoffenheim have scored in each of their last 10 Bundesliga games. We are therefore going for a correct score prediction of 3-1 to Dortmund.
