Dortmund vs Hoffenheim build-up, previous line-ups & injury news:
Once again fancied as one of Bayern Munich’s closest title challengers at the start of this season, Dortmund have gone off the rails in recent months with Lucien Favre being dismissed and his interim replacement, Terzic, winning just six of his 11 games in all competitions, losing four and drawing the other.
Consequently, Dortmund have slipped down the table and aside from being a massive 16 points behind Bayern, are now also four adrift of Champions League qualification. With just one win in their last five Bundesliga matches, Terzic’s men need to get their season back on track fast.
They will, at least, take confidence in the fact that Saturday’s opponents, Hoffenheim, have lost their last two games, conceding a combined seven goals in the process against Bayern and Eintracht Frankfurt.
Sebastian Hoeneß’ side have been wildly inconsistent in 2020/21, winning back-to-back Bundesliga games on just two occasions. That said, with the relegation playoff spot not completely out of the rearview mirror, Hoffenheim would love a result against Dortmund.
- Dortmund (vs Freiburg): Hitz; Can, Hummels, Akanji, Guerreiro; Delaney; Reyna, Reus, Brandt, Sancho; Haaland.
- Hoffenheim (vs Frankfurt): Baumann; Posch, Vogt, Richards; Gacinovic, Rudy, Samassekou, Baumgartner, John; Belfodil, Kramaric.
Roman Burki, Thomas Meunier, Lukasz Piszczek, Marcel Schmelzer, Axel Witsel and Dan-Axel Zagadou make up a long injury list for Dortmund, while Thorgan Hazard is also a doubt for the visit of Hoffenheim with a thigh problem.
Meanwhile, the visitors will be without Kevin Akpoguma, Ermin Bicakcic, Ryan Sessegnon, Dennis Geiger, Benjamin Hübner, Havard Nordtveit and Kostas Stafylidis.

Players to watch:
- Dortmund: While Dortmund have been stuttering, there’s been little stopping Erling Haaland recently. Since returning to action in the New Year, the Norwegian sensation has managed five goals and an assist in eight appearances and although that’s a slight step down from his usual levels, it still represents a good return in a side struggling for form. Haaland already has 14 Bundesliga goals to his name this season and is the only Dortmund player to score more than three in the competition, further illustrating his importance to the side. Haaland provided the assist for Marco Reus’ winner the last time these two sides met and he’ll be looking to go one better and score himself on this occasion to get Dortmund back on form.
- Hoffenheim: Centre-back has been a real problem position for Hoffenheim this season thanks to a mix of injuries and loss of form. Over the winter transfer window, Hoeneß looked to solve that problem by bringing in United States youth international Chris Richards on loan from Bayern Munich. At just 20 years old, Richards had already put in some eye-catching performances in seven appearances for Bayern across all competitions earlier this season and, even in the face of a 3-1 defeat, looked extremely promising against Eintracht Frankfurt in his Hoffenheim debut. Richards made four tackles, won three aerial duels and made a match-high five clearances against Frankfurt, while he showed off everything he’s learned so far at Bayern with a wonderful array of passing and ball-carrying. This match will represent a huge test for Richards as he goes up against Haaland, Jadon Sancho and compatriot Gio Reyna. Can the former FC Dallas man rise to the challenge?
