The German Bundesliga continues to roll on this weekend with another electric series of fixtures for fans to get excited about. The first few gameweeks have led many to believe that this could be one of the most unpredictable Bundesliga seasons in recent memory and while it may be a bit early to declare such a thing, it’s always nice to dream. Today, we’ll be taking a look at what should prove to be a really fun game as Borussia Dortmund prepare to meet Hoffenheim.

Borussia Dortmund

Borussia Dortmund finished last season in great form but the big question now is whether or not the return of fans will have as much of an impact as most desire. We’re talking about a community club that really does thrive off of the passion produced by their supporters and while they do have a few superstar names behind them, everyone knows they’ll have to be at their very best if they’re serious about competing with rivals Bayern Munich at the top of the table.


A midtable finish last season from Hoffenheim has been followed up by a thoroughly entertaining first few games whereby the club has scored nine goals across three league and cup outings. The worry for many is that they’re going to run out of steam when it matters the most in the second half of the season but if they can build up enough momentum until we reach the turn of the year, they could quite easily be in the mix for a European spot – especially with a strong January window.

Factors to Consider

  • Dortmund are viewed as the strong bookies favourites to secure the win.
  • In their last meeting back in February, Dortmund and Hoffenheim drew 2-2.
  • Dortmund have played four competitive games thus far whereas Hoffenheim have only played three.
  • Dortmund have won one and lost one of their first two Bundesliga games.
  • Hoffenheim have won one and drawn one of their first two Bundesliga games.


Hoffenheim appear to have maintained their free-scoring spirit to start off the new campaign and while we do think they could give Dortmund a bloody nose here, we also think the hosts will be out to make a real statement. We’re expecting them to soak up the early pressure, go on the offensive and really make it clear that they’re title contenders this season – with Erling Haaland likely adding a few million more to his value in the process.
