Hoffenheim lead Borussia Dortmund 2-1 at half time in the Bundesliga.
Hoffenheim have taken a 2-1 lead into the break against Borussia Dortmund in the Bundesliga.
It was a bright start from the hosts as Eugen Polanski fired an early shot at Mitchell Langerak, but the goalkeeper held on.
Then Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang found Robert Lewandowski on the left side, but from the angle the striker's shot went wide.
The hosts' early momentum paid off and they were ahead after 17 minutes as Sven Schipplock finished off a counter-attack to slot low.
It got better for Hoffenheim with just over five minutes of the half left as Kevin Volland struck a low shot to make it 2-0.
However, Dortmund got a lifeline just before the break through Aubameyang, who fired in from close range after Lewandowski flicked on a corner.
