Borussia Dortmund vs. 1899 Hoffenheim 6/27/20 Bundesliga Soccer Pick, Odds, and Prediction
2020-06-27 09:30:00 EDT
Borussia Dortmund is welcoming 1899 Hoffenheim to Signal Iduna Park in the last round of this season in German Bundesliga.
Borussia is in the second place in the standings and they can’t go up or down, which means the season is technically over for them. With 84 scored goals this season, Borussia is the second-best offensive team in Bundesliga, while their defense has been solid, but it failed at the wrong time. Borussia has conceded 37 goals this season. In their last Bundesliga game against Leipzig on the road, Dortmund has had 53% of ball possession, 7 shots on goal, 1 corner kick, and 86% of the correct passes. Haaland has scored 2 goals in this game, and Borussia has won this game 0-2. Sancho is still Borussia’s best player with 17 goals and 13 assists, while Haaland added 13 goals in 14 games since he joined Borussia Dortmund. Hazard has 13 assists, while Hakimi added 10 assists. Reus, Dahoud, and Delaney are all injured. Borussia was going toe to toe with Bayern Munich for most of the season, but unfortunately, they lost in the head to head game, and that is what cost Borussia the run for the title. Overall, a decent season for Borussia, but they choked at the crucial time, same old story for Borussia Dortmund.
Hoffenheim is in 7th place in the standings with 49 points, and they can’t drop any lower, but with a win in this match, Hoffenheim could possibly climb a spot and avoid the Europa League qualifications and go straight to the group stage. The defense has been a big problem for Hoffenheim this season and they conceded massive 53 goals, but their offense was good with 49 scored goals. Croatia striker Andrej Kramaric is Hoffenheim’s top goalscorer with 8 goals, while Baumgartner added 7 goals. Kaderabek and Skov each have 6 assists. Beldofil and Adamyan are still injured and the season was over for them a while ago. In their most recent Bundesliga game against Union Berlin at home, Hoffenheim was amazing with 59% of ball possession, 8 shots on goal, 6 corner kicks, and 84% of accurate passes. With 3 goals in the first half and one more goal in the second half, Hoffenheim has won this match 4-1. There was a period in the season when Hoffenheim was struggling offensively, but in their last two games, they scored 7 goals, while conceding only 1 goal, and just in time for Hoffenheim to secure their Europa League spot.
When playing at home, Dortmund has not lost to Hoffenheim in their last 7 games, but what we usually see in those matchups are goals. Since Hoffenheim needs a win here, I expect them to attack from the start, and for that reason, I will pick something on goals here. I know that the season is over for Borussia, but that doesn’t mean they will just roll over on their last game of the season, at home.
