Dortmund takes on Hoffenheim in the opening match of the 5th Round of the German Bundesliga. The game is set to start at 19:30 GMT 0 at Signal Iduna Park.

Promising Start

Dortmund started the current campaign with 3 wins and 1 loss. Dortmund quite unexpectedly lost 2-3 to Werder, so the team should do all it takes to compensate for the defeat. Sebastian Haller and Doneyl Mahlen are unavailable for the upcoming match while Manuel Akanji was transferred to Manchester City after some time of speculations. The rest of the squad is at the disposal of the coach Terzic.

Good Form

The guests have also been in good form recently. Hoffenheim has recorded 3 wins in a row after the team had started the campaign with a loss against Borussia Monchengladbach (3-1). The club has signed Angelino, Stanley Nsoki and Ozan Kabak. David Raum headed to Leipzig for a sufficient fee.

Our Verdict

We are expecting a tough victory for Dortmund despite the fact both teams are in good form. Considering the home advantage, the hosts should grasp the 3 points.
