This weekend the Bundesliga is coming to a close with Borussia Dortmund and Hoffenheim as the kickoff match for the weekend. Hoffenheim will be traveling to the Signal Iduna Park with hopes of qualifying for the Europa League next season. Alfred Schreuder’s side can manage to do so with a victory or draw if Wolfsburg also drop points in their match against Bayern Munich, which is highly likely.
The two sides previously met in December in a game which turned out to be an enthralling contest. Mario Gotze gave the black and yellow an early lead. However, two goals in the last ten minutes saw Hoffenheim run away with three points at their home stadium.
Aside from the reverse fixture, Dortmund do have an edge over Hoffenheim. Their attack has more goalscoring potential, and they generally like to control a lot of the ball. However, what makes this game interesting from a betting perspective is the rotation that Lucien Favre’s squad will see. It is the last game of the season, and Dortmund can neither go up or down.
