Borussia Dortmund vs Hoffenheim build-up & previous line-ups:
An eight-game Bundesliga winning streak came to an end last time out when Borussia Dortmund were beaten by Freiburg, that result coupled with their DFL-Supercup loss against Bayern Munich means BVB are looking to prevent a third defeat on the bounce, something they last suffered in late 2017. Success on Friday evening will be a sixth consecutive league win at the Westfalenstadion meaning Marco Rose’s side will equal the club’s last such lengthy winning streak which came under Thomas Tuchel (6) four years ago.
As for Hoffenheim they are currently enjoying the longest unbeaten streak of any Bundesliga club. TSG go into this week’s game having won four of their previous nine outings with the remaining matches ending in a stalemate. The last time Die Kraichgauer went on a longer run came under Julian Nagelsmann in 2018 when they went games without suffering a loss. This will be the club’s 14th visit to Dortmund and previously they’ve left without tasting defeat on seven occasions (two wins and five draws).
- Borussia Dortmund (vs Freiburg): Kobel; Passlack, Witsel, Akanji, Schulz; Reyna, Dahoud, Bellingham; Reus; Haaland, Malen.
- Hoffenheim (vs Union Berlin): Baumann; Akpoguma, Vogt, Posch, Raum; Stiller, Rudy; Baumgartner, Kramaric, Bruun Larsen; Dabbur.

Player to watch: Erling Haaland (Borussia Dortmund)
If we agree that Robert Lewandowski is Europe’s premier ‘number nine’ then Erling Haaland is the heir apparent. It’s somewhat fitting they are both currently playing in the same domestic competition but for now Lewa’s goals are contributing towards Bundesliga silverware. After the opening two rounds Haaland is one of ten players to have registered at least two strikes. To say he’s BVB’s most valuable player would be an understatement. Across his previous 18 league appearances the Leeds-born striker has registered 17 goals and created a further eight.
