Borussia Dortmund vs Hoffenheim (Bundesliga, 05.12.2014)

Bundesliga opens its 14th matchday with a highly interesting clash that promises not only goals, but also interesting odds for your betting markets. Borussia Dortmund host Hoffenheim at Westfallen Stadion in an attempt to win and escape the relegation zone they are currently residing at. The only issue is that Borussia Dortmund always had problems against Hoffenheim, and even when they were at their best, like Champions League finalists they lost 1-2 in Bundesliga, on home soil against them.

Hoffenheim reside on the 7th place in Bundesliga with 20 points, lost three matches in a row before winning in the last round against Hannover 96. The visitors know very well what’s at stake, but they will have to do so without Schipplock, Zuber and Schwegler, whose presence on the field is under doubt. They will try to compensate their absences by focusing on a very in-form Volland, Szalaia, Modeste and Elyounoussi who are the teams main goalscorers.
Borussia Dortmund has an extensive list of injuries, and some attribute their current form to Marco Reus’ absence, the playmaker being crucial to his team’s wins this season. Klopp will also be missing Sokratis, Hummels and Blaszczykowski, and neither player has a definite return date. Others attribute it to Bayern Munich’s mere presence on the football arena and it still does not explain Die Borrussen’s recent form. Against Eintracht Frankfurt, Dortmund was by far the better side, had the best chances to score, but Frankfurt was the more clinical side which allowed them to clinch an unexpected 2-0 win.

The hosts have conceded goals in 12 out of their 13 matches, and sometimes even two goals per game, which bodes well for your over/under bets. Statistics show that only one out of 17 shots on target from Borussia Dortmund reaches the net, and while Dortmund have the talent, they seem to have lost the self believe they used to be known for. Whereas Hoffenheim seem to have little to no problems in front of the goal, in the last three games they have scored seven goals and look poised to score some more on Friday.

Despite hitting rock bottom both literally and figuratively Borussia Dortmund are highly due for a win and 888sport gives them 1.52 odds to win as opposed to Hoffenheim’s 5.80. A draw looks to be the most popular bet with 4.30 odds. We are betting 8 units on Borussia Dortmund to score over 2.5 goals with 2.35 odds from 888sport, because if Hannover could do so against Hoffenheim so can the hosts. Firmino has 3.70 odds to score, Modeste 3.60 and Kevin Volland 3.70, while for Dortmund Aubameyang, Ramos and Immobile have 2.05 odds to score.
