Dortmund vs Hoffenheim Free Betting Tips
Does BVB give TSG a few extra games?
With ten points behind Bayern and six points ahead of third, Borussia Dortmund is no longer in the last home game of the season. TSG Hoffenheim, on the other hand, needs something countable in the Signal Iduna Park in order to secure sixth place in the remote duel with VfL Wolfsburg, which receives the champions Bayern Munich at home.
Finally, if the men from Kraichgau remain seventh, the second qualifying round for the Europa League would take place on September 17, 2020. In order to land in the group phase, three English weeks would be necessary, which the Sinsheimers would like to save.
Nevertheless, in Dortmund against Hoffenheim, the prediction should take into account that the kickers from Kraichgau are considered strong abroad. TSG achieved seven victories in the distance and only conceded 16 goals in foreign places. Only Leipzig presented itself defensively more compact. In addition, BVB has lost two of its last three home games and has now been waiting for another win against Sinsheim for four competitive games.
These are many factors that speak for a point win by TSG, especially since the direct entry into the Europa League is at stake for the blue-whites, while BVB is no longer concerned with anything. We therefore recommend playing the double chance X2 combined with “Both teams to score/ Yes” against Dortmund against Hoffenheim.
Dortmund – Statistics & current form
Borussia Dortmund is already surely qualified for the Champions League as runner-up and can already work intensively on planning the squad for the coming season if a new attack on Bayern is to take place.
The normal thing now is to say goodbye to your fans in the summer break in the last home game of the season. But because this game is also played as a ghost game, it could well be that one or the other professional gets a little motivated.
Two losses in the last three home games
Already in the most recent 0: 2 at home against Mainz 05, Borussia did not perform too well without pressure. It was also the second home defeat in the last three home games, which is extremely unusual under Lucien Favre. So far, there has been only one defeat among the Swiss in the 30 home games before.
The coach in the form of the suspended Emre Can, who picked up his fifth yellow card against Leipzig last weekend, has to do without one of his key players in the second half of the season. It is all the more surprising that bookmakers’ odds against Dortmund and Hoffenheim are so clearly towards black and yellow.
New goal record and 15 zero games
“We lost the last game 2-1 in December. We could lead 3-0 or 4-0 in the first half. Then we made mistakes and gave up the game. ” – Lucien Favre
This can be attributed to the strong performance data that can be seen at BVB in the 2019/20 season. Borussia has scored 84 goals so far. It is already clear that the previous goal record of the eight-time German champion will be broken.
The black and yellow were also very stable at the rear. So far the Westphalia have played to zero. Should the defensive zero be held a 16th time, this would also become a record forever. Currently, 15 zero games are the best shared with the previous championship season 2011/12.
Perpetuating oneself in the history books in this way should therefore still be a certain incentive for the team, which could also spoil the Sinsheimers with a home win the direct entry into the Europa League.
Probable lineup of Dortmund:
Bürki – Zagadou – Hummels – Piszczek – Hakimi – Guerreiro – Witsel – Brandt – Sancho – Hazard – Haaland

Hoffenheim – Statistics & current form
After TSG Hoffenheim narrowly missed qualifying for an international competition in the 2018/19 season as ninth, it is already clear that the Europa League will be played again in the 2019/20 season. It is only unclear whether the blue-whites go straight into the group phase or whether the remote duel with VfL Wolfsburg is lost and the path leads to the second qualification round.
It is also unclear which coach the Sinsheimers are going into the new season with. After the engagement with coach Alfred Schreuder ended on June 9th, because one could not commit to a common direction of the club for the future, assistant coach Matthias Kaltenbach took over on an interim basis. His working paper as a trainer ends three days after the Bundesliga final in Dortmund.
The third most points since the restart
The Hoffenheimers don’t have to hide. So far, only one away game has been won in Dortmund, but the TSG brings a lot of momentum. The blue-whites have gained 14 points from the eight games since the restart. Only Bavaria and Dortmund were more successful in this time window.
In addition, the Sinsheimers travel with the tailwind from two wins in a row to Westphalia, where they meet a team they have been unbeaten against four times in a row – the longest unbeaten streak that the TSG has to show against all 18 Bundesliga clubs. Against this background, it is by no means absurd to give a tip on the next point win for the blue-whites at Dortmund against Hoffenheim.
Only three defeats in foreign places
After all, in a direct duel with Wolfsburg for sixth place the goal difference against the Baden-Württemberg speaks, who are thus doomed to score. This is also supported by the away strength of TSG, who lost only three of the 16 games to date in foreign places. The kickers got a proud 27 points from the Kraichgau in the distance.
Another particularly positive fact is that Matthias Kaltenbach can draw on almost all players. No fewer than six players currently have four or nine yellow cards and were able to avoid being blocked in this important showdown on match day 34.
Now it is a matter of disenchanting the Dortmund gate factory with united forces and bringing your own defensive strength back onto the field. With only 16 goals conceded in foreign places – the second best value in the league – the blue-whites definitely have what it takes.
Probable lineup of Hoffenheim:
Baumann – Hübner – Grillitsch – Posch – Skov – Samassekou – Kaderabek – Kramaric – Rudy – Baumgartner – Dabbur

Dortmund vs Hoffenheim Direct comparison
Head to head: 10 – 9 – 6
There have been a total of 25 clashes between Borussia Dortmund and TSG Hoffenheim so far, and with ten games won, the Westphalians lead in the resulting “head to head” balance sheet ahead of the six wins for Sinsheim. Nine draws round off the direct comparison.
Most recently, the duel was clear in the hands of TSG, which has not lost to BVB in four games in a row (two wins, two draws). In the first leg, the blue-whites won 2-1 at home. The last duel in Signal Iduna Park ended with a 3: 3 draw.
Matchday 34 speaks for TSG
Both opponents face each other for the third time on a 34th matchday, which historically speaks for the Sinsheimers. On match day 34 of the 2012/13 season, the men from the Kraichgau landed a surprising 2-1 away win at Borussia and saved themselves in the relegation, in which relegation was successful.
On the 34th matchday of the 2017/18 season, on the other hand, it was a 3-1 home win that brought Hoffenheim into the UEFA Champions League for the first and only time so far. In the third duel on match day 34, is it a threesome again with which TSG will avoid the qualifying rounds and safely reach the Europa League group stage?
Dortmund vs Hoffenheim Free Betting Tips
At Dortmund versus Hoffenheim, several factors have to be taken into account in the prediction, which is why it is also very difficult to commit to the 1X2 system. An important aspect is that there is apparently nothing left for the black and yellow who, with Emre Can, are missing one of the most noticeable second-round players.
However, under Lucien Favre Dortmund lost only three of the 33 home games in the Bundesliga and is extremely difficult to beat at home. Then again two of these three home bankruptcies can be found in the last three home games, while Hoffenheim is a team that has been unbeaten for four games against BVB.
Key facts – Dortmund vs Hoffenheim tips
Hoffenheim has not lost a single of the last four games against BVB
Dortmund have lost two of their last three home games
Hoffenheim lost only three of the 16 league games away
In our opinion, the most sustainable is to play the double chance X2 at Dortmund against Hoffenheim. After all, the TSG needs something countable at BVB. Because we expect two opponents with an offensive attitude, we combine this bet with “Both teams to score/ Yes”.
