Dortmund Claims Bundesliga Summit with 3-1 Victory Against Hoffenheim

Borussia Dortmund secured the leading position in the German football Bundesliga, at least until Saturday, following their 3-1 triumph against Hoffenheim. Despite facing challenges, including an injury to Sabitzer and being one man down in the final phase, Dortmund’s unbeaten streak this season remains intact.

The opening goal for Dortmund was scored by Niclas F├╝llkrug in the 18th minute, marking his debut goal for BVB. Seven minutes later, Andrej Kramaric equalized for Hoffenheim with a penalty kick. However, just before halftime, Marco Reus restored Borussia’s lead.

In the 71st minute, Dortmund played with a numerical disadvantage after Ramy Bensebaini received a yellow-red card. Despite a somewhat lackluster second half, Julian Ryerson secured the victory with a final score of 3-1 in the 95th minute.

With 14 points, BVB currently holds the top position in the table. However, several competitors, including FC Bayern with 13 points, have the opportunity to overtake them on Saturday. FC Bayern is set to face RB Leipzig, the DFB Cup winners, who are just two points behind Dortmund.
