Borussia Dortmund vs Hoffenheim
Date: Saturday, 13 February 2021
Kick-Off at 14.30 UK
Borussia Dortmund will be desperate to return to winning ways on Saturday afternoon when they play host to Hoffenheim in the 21st Bundesliga round.
The Schwarzgelben are miles away from their best shape these days. They have lost three of the last four league fixtures to drop down to the 6th position in the Bundesliga ladder.
We would not be surprised to see the team’s board parting ways with interim manager Edin Terzic before the end of the season.
The German manager does not seem to have things under control despite having a star-studded line-up on disposal.
Die Schwarzgelben look incapable of keeping things quiet at the back at the moment. They did not keep a clean sheet in seven successive matches across competitions. They have conceded two or more goals in four of the last five games in all competitions.
The latest of the failures came last weekend when Borussia lost 2-1 away at Freiburg. Can they bounce back here against out-of-form Hoffenheim?
Borussia Dortmund vs Hoffenheim Head-to-head
- Dortmund lead the head to head tie by four wins ahead of the 28th clash against Die Kraichgauer.
- Die Schwarzgelben picked up a narrow 0-1 victory when the two sides played each other in the first half of the season in Sinsheim.
- Three or more goals were scored in three subsequent head to head clashes before the mentioned this season’s encounter.
Borussia Dortmund vs Hoffenheim Prediction
Hoffenheim have been leaking goals with ease lately. They shipped as many as seven in back-to-back defeats to Bayern Munich and Eintracht Frankfurt. This should be the music to the ears of Erling Haaland who is the competition’s third-top scorer with 14 goals in 15 appearances this term.
The Norwegian forward is expected to lead the line on Saturday and we would not be surprised to see him netting two or more goals here. You can back such a scenario at the 2.30 odds.
Since Hoffenheim are also capable of producing in the final third, we see the home win & both teams to score as the bet to go for here. It is priced up at the 2.50 odds.
