Head-to-head record

  • TSG Hoffenhiem and Borussia meet for the 26th time in the Bundesliga on Wednesday. The Foals have the edge overall, winning eight of the 25 match-ups to date. Hoffenheim have won seven times, with ten games ending in a draw.
  • The reverse fixture this season in December 2020 ended in a 2-1 defeat for the Foals at BORUSSIA-PARK.
  • Gladbach have a good record in Sinsheim of late, picking up seven of a possible nine points from their last three away games against TSG (3-1 win, 0-0 draw, and most recently a 3-0 win on MD6 last season)

Statistics – presented by UNIBET

  • The Foals are unbeaten in their last four matches and have the best record in the league in that timeframe (10 points, 11:3 goal record).
  • The game against Frankfurt saw Borussia score two goals from corner kicks for the first time in the Bundesliga since December 2009. They have now scored seven goals in total from corners this season – a league high and already a joint club season record since detailed data collection began in 1993.
  • Six of the seven corner kicks that have led to corners this season have been taken by Jonas Hofmann – it’s a league-high return for the Germany international, just like his tally of 10 set pieces leading to goals.
  • Borussia have scored 21 goals from set pieces in total – they have only netted more since detailed data collection began in 1993/94 (22).
  • Not only did Jonas Hofmann deliver two corner kicks leading to goals against Frankfurt, but he also got on the scoresheet himself. It was his sixth goal of the season in what was his 20th Bundesliga appearance, setting a new personal best for the midfielder across an entire top-flight campaign.
  • TSG have failed to win any of their last five Bundesliga games, with only Köln on a longer winless run in the league.
  • Hoffenheim secured 0-0 draws against Bayer Leverkusen and RB Leipzig in their last two matches. It’s the first time they have recorded back-to-back goalless draws since autumn 2015 (their first two games under Huub Stevens back then). They have never endured a three-game run.
  • TSG have scored just two goals across their last five games, failing to score more than once per match during that run.
