Did you know that…
…the two Bundesliga coaches with the best points averages will face each other?
Julian Nagelsmann (1.66 points per match) and Lucien Favre (1.64 points per match) have the best career points averages of all the coaches currently working in the Bundesliga.
…Borussia Dortmund are yet to lose a Bundesliga game at home this term?

…Hoffenheim could equal a club record?
Julian Nagelsmann's charges have not lost a single one of their last seven Bundesliga matches on the road. Avoiding defeat in Dortmund would see the Kraichgau club equal their previous record of eight consecutive away games unbeaten. That record was set back in the 2016/17 campaign.
…Hoffenheim are unbeaten in the Bundesliga after taking the lead?
TSG have taken the lead in 14 Bundesliga matches this season and they have not been beaten in a single one of them. There have been seven wins and seven draws.
…Andrej Kramaric is set to make his 100th Bundesliga appearance?
The Croatian forward has played 99 Bundesliga matches for TSG Hoffenheim, scoring 42 goals in that time. Another goal would see Kramaric draw level with Vedad Ibisevic in second place on the list of the club's all-time record goalscorers.
