Hoffenheim vs Borussia Dortmund
HOF vs DOR Dream11 MATCH PREVIEW:
Hoffenheim suffered an unfortunate and an untimely end to their nine-game unbeaten streak when they lost 0-2 against VfB Stuttgart in the last game. Considering the performance of Julian Nagelsmann’s men in that match, Hoffenheim should have got something out of that match. They bossed the possession and had an incredible 23 shots in the game, still, it was just those days when ball failed to go into the net.
The loss couldn’t have come at a more inopportune time for Hoffenheim as it left them with no choice but to step out on to Rhein-Neckar Arena and win the game as their Champions League qualifications are riding on this match.
For Dortmund, a win will confirm a 3rd place finish for the 8 times German Champions, while a draw or a loss would just be enough to guarantee a place amongst Europe’s best for the sixth time in the last 7 years. The der BVB lost 2-1 at home against Mainz in the league last week. Despite that chastening defeat, the Yellow army is still in a pole position to achieve a top-4 finish.
Bayer Leverkusen and RB Leipzig are also in contention to finish in the top-4. If Hoffenheim fail to earn the maximum points in this game, both, Leverkusen and Leipzig, have the chance to leapfrog Naglesmann’s men into the 4th.
So it’s a must-win game for Hoffenheim and only a win will make this a successful season for this club.

HOF vs DOR Dream11 FANTASY TEAM:
INDIA FANTASY PREDICTION:
This could be a historical match if Hoffenheim win this game as a win will take them to the Champions League group stage which is a first for this club.
But the home team have a very bad record against Borussia Dortmund and this could be a psychological factor when home team step out onto the pitch for this particular match.
We are backing Dortmund not to lose in this game.
