Dortmund’s impressive third consecutive league victory catapulted them to 14 points, securing a one-point lead over both Bayer Leverkusen and Bayern Munich, who are scheduled to play on Saturday.

The visitors took the lead in the 18th minute due to a defensive lapse, and Niclas Fuellkrug capitalized on the opportunity, marking his first goal of the season. Andrej Kramaric leveled the score with a 25th-minute penalty, but Dortmund entered halftime with a 2-1 advantage, courtesy of Marco Reus, who capitalized on a rebound caused by a spill from goalkeeper Oliver Baumann.

Notably, Marco Reus, despite being 34 and previously considered out of contention for a starting spot this season, has now netted three goals in the last three league matches, showcasing his enduring quality.

Hoffenheim launched a spirited second-half performance and even struck the crossbar with a remarkable Robert Skov free-kick. Dortmund found themselves down to 10 players after Ramy Bensebaini received a second booking in the 71st minute. However, it was Dortmund who sealed the victory, thanks to Julian Ryerson‘s exhilarating 70-meter stoppage-time sprint, ending Hoffenheim’s four-game winning streak.
