Did you know that…
…neither team will be able to rest easy on Saturday?
If one of the two teams take the lead, it is unlikely to mean much. TSG have already taken 11 points from losing positions at home, while Dortmund have amassed 10 points on the road from matches in which Marco Rose's charges have been behind. Both these figures are league highs.
…both sides are dangerous in the closing stages?
Both BVB and TSG have already found the back of the net 13 times in the final quarter of an hour in this Bundesliga campaign – more than every other club in the division.
…TSG almost always score against Dortmund?
The two teams have met on 27 previous occasions and Hoffenheim have only failed to score three times. In the Bundesliga, BVB only have a worse record against 1. FC Saarbrücken (clean sheets in 10% of matches).
…there's a double danger on the horizon?
Erling Haaland has scored at least two goals in a game six times this season (the same as Robert Lewandowski). But Ihlas Bebou has also bagged several braces: his seven goals have come in only three league games.
