Hoffenheim vs Borussia Dortmund
Date: Saturday, 22 September 2018
Kick-Off at 14:30 UK / 15:30 CET
Venue: WIRSOL Rhein-Neckar-Arena (Sinsheim).
A real buzz is expected in and around WIRSOL Rhein-Neckar-Arena on Saturday afternoon when two Champions League outfits take on each other in the most interesting clash of the Matchday No 4 in Bundesliga.
Hoffenheim ware hoping to snatch a three-pointer which would get their domestic campaign up and running after two losses and a win in three games so far. The lack of meticulousness at the back was the main problem for Julian Nagelsmann and his men at the start of the campaign. They are yet to keep a clean sheet and they’ve allowed as many as six goals in three matches.
It will be the music to the ears of Borussia’s talented attacking line-up. Die Schwarzgelben enjoyed a fine performance last weekend when they saw off Eintracht Frankfurt 3-1 at Signal-Iduna-Park. The most recent acquisition Paco Alcacer was among goal-scorer as the Spaniard notched his maiden goal in Dortmund shirt.
