The Bundesliga has a history of producing a few hat trick performances, and it appears that Dortmund’s team has notched their fifth of the season.
They have scored just four times so far in their three games this season, and that has not helped them to reach the quarter-finals of the Champions League.
The game against Hoffenheim, the team’s last of the campaign, came to a conclusion in a 2-1 loss at the Allianz Arena, as they lost 2-0.
Their goalscoring ability has also been questioned since the start of the Bundesliga season, with Dortmund scoring just one goal in three matches.
That was against Schalke on March 1, and they have scored once in their last three outings.
Here is how to watch the hat trick game in the Premier League.
First, the first half: At 1-1, Borussia Dortmund came out with a high-press in which they pressed all of their opponents.
That worked well for a few minutes, as Hoffenheimer looked to create openings in the defensive half, but the ball fell to an unmarked Daniel Gross, who got a quick pass to Jürgen Klopp and scored the goal in the 55th minute.
Dortmund had a decent opening for a corner kick, but it was saved well by Schalkes keeper.
The second half: Dortmund started the second half with a 4-1 lead.
The goal came just before the break, when Graziano Pelle hit the post from a corner, and Daniel Gross also put the visitors in front for good.
In the 89th minute, Grazich Röder put Hoffenhausen ahead, and a cross by Stefan Krasic found a running Stefan Hahn who was able to make it 2-2.
The last goal came in the 80th minute when Schalkel beat the back line, and Jürge Klopp sent in a cross that went to Grazien Kruse who put his team in front.
After the goal, it was 1-0 Hoffenbach.
The next match: Hoffenfeld’s first match since that defeat to SchalKE came on March 3 against Borussia Mönchengladbach.
Dortmund were in a good position at the start, but Hoffenhein had a few chances to score, but they were largely deflected.
The first chance came in midfield, when Jonas Gustavsson got on the end of a cross from Jürger Freund, and he put a header into the bottom corner of the net.
The other chance came just a few moments later, when Rödiger Janssen had a shot from a tight angle, but he was denied by the post.
The Hoffenhem team was able get a free header from the corner of goal in stoppage time, but was unable to get the equalizer.
The win: Hoffenhaupt’s second game after their loss against SchALKE came in a 1-2 defeat to Borussia Monchenglads in the first leg of their Europa League round of 16 tie.
Hoffenblau had a good opening in the second period, but Dortmund found a way to open up the game with their counter attack.
After two decent chances in the 90th minute and then a late break, Borussen was able take the lead, and Rödel struck the crossbar to give Hoffen’s team a 3-2 lead in the 79th minute to stay up.
The final goal came when Borussen made it 4-2 in the 81st minute, and the home side equalized again with a free kick that bounced off of a defender.
Hoffenhaiem took a 2nd half lead, but a poor decision from Jens Keller resulted in a goal for Borussen, and Hoffen were unable to keep the lead.
