Hoffenheim – Dortmund is the match of the day from the Bundesliga featuring two teams in a race for the Champions League positions for the next season. The game will start at 15:30 and it will take place on WIRSOL Rhein-Neckar-Arena in Sinsheim, Germany.
Hoffenheim were one of the most inform teams in the Bundesliga until last weekend when they faced Stuttgart away from home. They lost with 2-0 and that loss ended a 9 game unbeaten streak and it came at the worst possible time for the team coached by Julian Nagelsmann. He made a great job at the team that is currently on the last place that leads to the Uefa Champions League but with the same amount of points as their rivals from Leverkusen. They have a really tough game ahead of them but with Dortmund in a bad form they could take advantage of that.
Hoffenheim: Baumann – Nordtveit – Vogt – Akpoguma – Schulz – Zulj – Grillitsch – Amiri – Kaderabek – Kramaric – Uth
Dortmund come into this with a much weaker form as they lost last time out against the relegation strugglers from Mainz, being the shock of the round. Before that they also drew against Werder Bremen and with that form they can’t expect much from a game against a beast like Hoffenheim. Although they are on the 3rd place with 3 points ahead of Hoffenheim but if they lose here and Leverkusen win their game they could be out from the Champions League position. It’s a game with a high-stake and they should do anything to get a positive result
Dortmund: Burki – Schmelzer – Akanji – Piszczek – Toljan – Weigl – Sancho – Reus – Gotze – Pulisic – Philipp

Hoffenheim – Dortmund: Prediction
Earlier this season Dortmund won the match against Hoffenheim with 2-1 at home, but back then they were in a good form. Lately they have given up really big chances and made mistakes that costs them a lot in important games. They were really inconsistent during their season and that could cost them the participation in the Uefa Champions League competition. Hoffenheim on the other hand were the surprise of the season being one of the top teams in the Bundesliga and they shouldn’t gave up on their place just at the end. A high-scoring is expected as the last 4 meetings between these two ended with at least 3 goals. Hoffenheim should win this and consolidate their well-deserved third place.
