Hoffenheim News and Form – Can the hosts build on the midweek win?

Alfred Schreuder’s Hoffenheim went into Tuesday’s game against Union Berlin in the capital without a win in four, losing three and drawing one. However, the team from the Kraichgau region were excellent at the Stadion An der Alten Forsterei, with second-half goals from Ihlas Bebou and Christoph Baumgartner giving them a deserved 2-0 win.

Hoffenheim have blown hot and cold this season. Before their recent four-game winless streak, Schreuder’s side picked up six straight league and cup victories, beating the likes of Bayern Munich and Schalke along the way.

Borussia Dortmund News and Form – BVB to win the on the road for the third time in a row?

Lucien Favre’s Borussia Dortmund were involved in a six-goal thriller with Red Bull Leipzig at the Westfalenstadion in midweek. The Black and Yellows raced into a two-goal lead by half time thanks to first-half strikes by Julian Weigl and Julian Brandt. However, Leipzig were level by the 53rd minute. England international Jadon Sancho restored Dortmund’s lead, though Patrik Schick levelled things up for the visitors with 13 minutes left on the clock.

Tuesday’s draw with the Red Bulls stopped a run of four successive league and cup wins. Borussia had sealed victories over Hertha Berlin, Dusseldorf, Slavia Prague (UEFA Champions League) and Mainz.

After beating Cologne 3-1 in August, Dortmund had to wait until November 30th for their next away league triumph. However, they have won their last two on the road in the Bundesliga, beating Hertha and Mainz. Can Favre’s men make it hat-trick of away league wins on Friday?

Hoffenheim vs Borussia Dortmund Predictions

Borussia Dortmund win: Favre’s boys have not been at their best in the Bundesliga this season, though they are not the only ones. Last Tuesday’s draw with Leipzig, however, was their first dropped points in four.

Hoffenheim’s victory in Berlin in midweek was a much needed one, as they had not tasted victory for over a month. Unfortunately for them, we can see them falling to a narrow home defeat on Friday night. The away side are priced at 8/11 to return to Dortmund with all three points. Also, put some money on the Black and Yellows to win by one goal at the tasty price of 3/1.
