Borussia Dortmund vs Hoffenheim
Date: Saturday, 9 February 2019
Kick-Off at 14:30 UK
Venue: Signal-Iduna-Park, Dortmund
Borussia Dortmund have seen a troubled week behind them, as Eintracht denied them points to build on the gap at the top of the table in a 1-1 draw in Frankfurt and Bremen knocked them out of DFB Pokal on penalties after thriller 3-3 draw on Tuesday.
BVB now host Hoffenheim for their Matchday 21 clash desperate to pick it up ahead of their Champions League clash against Tottenham, which should have them very motivated to impress at Signal-Iduna-Park and return to the six-game winning streak seen here beforehand!
Hoffenheim have other plans in mind but they’ve lost on their consistency just as much, seeing a 1-3 loss to Bayern Munich, a 2-4 win over Freiburg, and just a 1-1 draw against Fortuna Dusseldorf in their last three outings. Julian Nagelsmann’s men have been scoring and conceding numbers of goals, which could be more worrying as we go into a thrilling contest in Dortmund in the making.
