Borussia Dortmund and Hoffenheim are simply fighting for a stronger finish this season. As the season is about to end and with their survival secured, the match is just a test of the clubs’ skills. The encounter is such a great opportunity for them to evaluate just how far they can go.

 

Bayer Leverkusen just forced Dortmund to a draw last weekend. But it hardly affected the club’s performance in the Bundesliga table. Dortmund has already sealed its Champions League berth this season. Despite the difficulties, they were able to retain the runner-up spot. Overall, they are already clear of their Bundesliga obligations. Currently, their only concern is the DFB Pokal where they are pitted against their perennial rival, Bayern Munchen.

 

As for Hoffenheim’s side, they can use the match to climb a notch higher in Bundesliga’s top 10. With a maximum of 6 points to gain, they can outrank easily outrank Augsburg. Should they lose to Dortmund, this hardly eclipses their impressive performance. Last season, Hoffenheim barely retained its Bundesliga status. They finished on the 16th spot and currently, they are enjoying their stature as one of the league’s elite.

 

Clearly, no matter what the result is, this will not hurt both clubs.

 

Prediction: Borussia Dortmund

Certainly, Borussia Dortmund is the top pick of sports betting sites. Undefeated in its last 7 matches, stopping them would be a difficult feat.
