Salihovic predicts Dortmund defeat

By Football News



Hoffenheim midfielder Sejad Salihovic has claimed his team will defeat reigning German champions Borussia Dortmund 3-0 on Sunday.

The Sinsheim outfit, who find themselves in fight to stave off relegation and have lost their past five league games, have suffered defeat in the Bundesliga at the hands of Dortmund just twice, and the Bosnian believes their record speaks for itself.

"If we concede a goal, we will win. I say that we will win 3-0. We have lost only once to them at our own stadium," Salihovic told Bild.

Borussia Dortmund sporting director Michael Zorc quickly responded to the bold prediction, insisting his team are gunning for the three points at the weekend.

"It's nice that they are so optimistic at Hoffenheum. We have a slightly different view and goal. We want to enter the winter break with a victory."
