Our prediction for this Bundesliga match:
Hoffenheim and Borussia Dortmund go head to head at PreZero Arena in the opening match of the Bundesliga round 6. Hoffenheim aim to extend their winning run to five games and they are likely to stick to their attacking style of play. Keep in mind, though, that all Wouter Weghorst, Florian Grillitsch, Stanley Nsoki, Marco John, Bambase Conte, and Dennis Geiger are sidelined with injuries.
The Yellow-Blacks, on the other hand, managed to break the deadlock against Wolfsburg, with experienced forward Marco Reus scoring the only goal of the match. Borussia Dortmund are eager to stay in the title race and given their attacking potential, we believe that there is a big value in betting on both teams to score. As for the away side, all Marcel Sabitzer, Julien Duranville, Mateu Morey, and Thomas Meunier are out of contention through injuries, while Sebastien Haller is pushing for a start.
