The Black and Yellow army travel to Sinsheim, at the 30,000-capacity Rhein-Nectar Arena, in Matchday 22 of the Bundesliga.

Borussia Dortmund have continued their ridiculously great form, brushing aside every opponent they face each week in the Bundesliga. Erin Terzic’s men are the only side have won the last six fixtures in the Bundesliga, with atleast two goals scored in each gameweek, .i.e, 4-3 Augsburg, 1-2 Mainz, 0-2 Leverkusen, 5-1 Freiburg, 0-2 Bremen, & 4-1 against Hertha last week, all registered wins. The last such run came in their double-winning run in 2011/12 under Jurgen Klopp.

Hoffenheim are enduring a challenging Bundesliga season, languishing in 15th place, with 19 points and a spot above the relegation spot on goal difference. The Sinsheim-based side have recently appointed American Pellegrino Matarazzo, who’s underseen a couple of defeats to Leverkusen and Augsburg in the last two gameweeks. The former Stuttgart manager will be hoping to finally turn around his team’s terrible form, after his predecessor Andre Breteinreiter, was dismissed after a win-less run of 9 consecutive Bundesliga games. Hoffenheim are win-less in the last four fixtures and against the joint top side in the league presents such an opportunity to change this unsavoury fact.

Hoffenheim form (all competitions): D-L-L-L-L

Borussia Dortmund form (all competitions): W-W-W-W-W

Players to watch

Hoffenheim: Angelino

The former Manchester City full-back has been the best performer for a Hoffenheim side, and the main creative outlet for his side , with 6 assists in 20 matches. The Spaniard has a lot of experience playing under Pep’s successful Manchester City team in 2017-18, particularly known for his attacking flair. His experience in Bundesliga is also been a mixed bag, as he’s currently on loan from his parent club Leipzig and his performances will be closely monitored, towards his return next season.

Borussia Dortmund: Marco Reus

The captain and Dortmund legend was instrumental in breaking the deadlock against Hertha last week, and finished with a goal and assist. His man-of-the-match performance has also elevated Julian Brandt and now injured Karim Adeyemi’s game, with creativity the least of Dortmund’s concerns right now, especially being the second-top scorer in the league behind Bayern. He’ll be the man to rely on again as Dortmund continue in this onslaught against Bayern’s title hopes.
