Borussia Dortmund are looking to go top of the Bundesliga this weekend as the club’s astonishing form since the World Cup continues to put them as Europe’s most in-form side ahead of travelling to Hoffenheim.
Dortmund have been sensational since action resumed in Germany, as they have managed to win six Bundesliga games in a row, advance in the DFB-Pokal round of 16, and even beat Chelsea 1-0 in the Champions League round of 16.
The Black and Yellow eased past Hertha Berlin last time out, as Karim Adeyemi managed to get another goal. Donyell Malen, Marco Reus and Julian Brandt all scored a goal each that day.
Dortmund have now cut their gap to Bayern Munich to just goals difference, as both those two and Union Berlin sit on 43 points. Edin Terzić's men sit second as a result, behind Bayern and ahead of Union.
As for Hoffenheim, while BVB keep on winning, they keep on losing. The club are now down in 15th and above the relegation playoff spot by only goals difference over VfL Bochum.
It’s now seven losses in a row since the World Cup and winter breaks ended, and with them also losing to RB Leipzig, Eintracht Frankfurt and Wolfsburg before the break, it means 10 losses in a row in total.
