The 2020/21 Bundesliga season following the international break with an interesting fixture pitting Hoffenheim at home against Borussia Dortmund.
Hoffenheim’s 100% start to the season was brought to an end in Frankfurt in their last match before the international break as they succumbed to a 2-1 loss despite taking the lead in that game. They had started the season with a dramatic opening day 3-2 injury-time win at FC Koln before stunning the world of football when they thrashed Bayern Munich 4-1 in their second outing.
Croatian forward Andrej Kramaric has been the biggest factor in impressive performances. He leads the league with six goals in his three matches, having scored a hat-trick in the opening day win at FC Klon, a brace against Bayern and the only goal in the loss to Frankfurt.
Sebastian Hoeness is hoping to better the sixth-place finish from last season. They come into this game with a bit of confidence having beaten Dortmund 4-0 in Dortmund on the final day of last season, with Kramaric scoring all four goals!
Dortmund kicked off this season’s campaign in convincing fashion with a 3-0 win over Borussia Monchengladbach. However, two quick defeats followed after this as they lost the next league game 2-0 at Augsburg and 3-2 to nemesis Bayern Munich in the German Super Cup.
Coach Lucien Favre demanded a response and they did quickly as they convincingly won 4-0 at home to Augsburg just before the international break. He will be hoping they maintain this level of focus particularly away from home where they have struggled in recent seasons.
Norwegian sensational striker Erling Braut Haaland has picked up from where he left last season. He has scored a double in two of their three matches. Only Kramaric (6) and Lewandowski (5) have scored more.
Hoffenheim finished a decent 6th position last season and are in the Europa League. They have been playing well to start the season and were disappointed not to go the break on a 100% record. They beat champions Bayern 4-1 at home on matchday 2 to underline their intentions for this season. In fact, they did the double on Dortmund last season, including a 4-0 win in Dortmund on the final day of the season. They actually haven’t lost at home to Dortmund in the last seven meetings. We reckon there is some value in backing them on the double chance @ 2.03 with Fezbet as our first betting prediction.
The quality of attacking talent on both teams suggests that we could be in for a thriller. Forwards Andrej Kramaric and Erling Haaland have found their scoring boots early to start the season, with both of them scoring 2 or more goals in two of the three matches. 16 of the last 18 H2H encounters have had both teams scoring and we are backing the same to land @ 1.40 with Fezbet as our final prediction for the game.
