Hoffenheim vs Borussia Dortmund Match Preview
Borussia Dortmund travel to Hoffenheim for their Matchday 17 clash on Friday evening having made the top 4 cut with a four-match winning streak, which also saw them through to the Champions League knockout stages with a home win over Slavia Prague (2-1) last week.
BVB have been in fine goalscoring spell of form lately and we’ve seen them beat Fortuna Dusseldorf (5-0) and Mainz (0-4) in December as well, which will make ending the year in such a mood up front even more of a task with a tough schedule. Jadon Sancho has been a true threat in the final third and bagged eight goals in his last seven appearances.
Hoffenheim have lacked such a threat with Andrej Kramaric only returning to action in October to bag four goals in six appearances until late November, seeing a three-match drought since. Scoring hasn’t been a problem, though, and they netted at least one in all of the last six outings but defensive woes, on the other hand, have.
Die Kraichgauer conceded a total of ten goals in their last three home outings and saw Mainz (1-5), Fortuna Dusseldorf (1-1), and Augsburg (2-4) snatch the points along the way, which will be even more worrying. The clean sheet kept at Union Berlin (0-2) on Tuesday was the first in a month and a half, and Alfred Schreuder will have to build on it.
Still, doing so against in-form Borussia Dortmund promises to be a tough task and we don’t see Hoffenheim shutting them down. We’ll now rather back the visitors to turn another exciting game their way and go for an Away win at 8/11 with William Hill.
We do feel BVB will have to outgun the rivals to secure the points and with that in mind, we’re also backing a high-scoring occasion and go for a Yes on Both teams to score at 1/2 with bet365 – which feels like a banker bet here.
