Hoffenheim have been extremely inconsistent so far this season and the team has registered only seven victories in 20 league matches. They have a pretty dismal record at the Signal Iduna Park after losing the last six trips without exception; one of the few consolations would be the team scoring in five of these games. Dortmund will revel in the seven-point advantage for the team despite dropping points against Frankfurt last weekend. The exceptional home record that Dortmund have against Hoffenheim makes our preview go with a home win.

Correct Score odds
Dortmund have been able to score more than any other team this season with youngsters like Jadon Sancho contributing to the team as well as experienced campaigners like Paco Alcacer. This spread within the squad has made Dortmund solid on a number of aspects. Meanwhile, Hoffenheim have the worst defensive record apart from Bayern Leverkusen with the top eight places and it is indicative of the team’s biggest struggle this season. Our correct score prediction would opt for a 2-1 win for the home team.

Over/Under 2.5 Goals odds
It is remarkable that just one of the last six meetings between Dortmund and Hoffenheim at the Signal Iduna Park has produced less than 2.5 goals. The remaining matches have all been with more than 2.5 goals. Our total goals prediction would pick over 2.5 goals.

First Goalscorer odds
Marco Reus has been able to get back to scoring ways immediately after his return from an injury. He has been able to get the opening goal for Dortmund in his last two appearances. His record against Hoffenheim also happens to be quite good with two goals in his last three league appearances. Our first goalscorer prediction would back Marco Reus.
