Dortmund have only suffered one defeat in their last 22 competitive matches and that came against PSG in the group stage of the Champions League. They secured a win against Wolfsburg, with Marco Reus getting the only goal of the game, in their most recent outing.
Hoffenheim are only one point above Dortmund and it could be a closely fought affair based on recent form. They have won their last four games in a row and will be confident of getting points in front of their home crowd.
