Football Prediction of the Day Hoffenheim vs Borussia Dortmund
I see Dortmund superior and that’s why I think we should bet on her victory. He has a lot more valuable than his opponent and this is seen in the ranking because it is 5 places higher. In addition, it is also better in terms of technical bank.
For Reus and the company, if they take the 3 points, it could prove extremely important in the fight for the title, which this season is very close. They are in good form and have 4 successes in the last 5 matches, and in all they have registered at least 2 times.
Hoffenheim lost to coach Julian Nagelsmann in the summer, and this left deep traces. In 3 of the previous 5 disputes he lost and in all these defeats he scored at least 2 goals.
Bet Tips: 2 & over 1.5 goals
