Borussia Dortmund will play host to TSG Hoffenheim at the Signal Iduna Park, in Dortmund. The upcoming Bundesliga 2021-22 Borussia Dortmund vs TSG Hoffenheim match will kick off at 12 am on Saturday, August 28. Although the hosts started the season well by beating Eintracht Frankfurt 5-2, they fell to a demoralising defeat (3-1) to Bayern Munich in the DFL Supercup. It was soon followed by another shocking 2-1 loss to SC Freiburg in the home league. With two back-to-back defeats, Dortmund know they cannot afford to drop too many points early on and will hope to return to winning ways in this home fixture.
On the contrary, Hoffenheim travel to Signal Iduna Park in a slightly more upbeat mood than their hosts as they remain unbeaten in the new season. However, Sebastian Hoeness’ men have opened the 2021-22 season with a 4-0 victory over FC Augsburg before sharing points with Union Berlin in the last game. Nevertheless, the upcoming clash against big guns Dortmund will be a big test for Hoffenheim, who will hope to spring a surprise and make it three in a row.
