With 12 scored and as many conceded, the hosts do not know what a goalless draw means, while Gladbach are challenging them in the goals for column with 10 from their first four games of the season.
With a total of 42 goals from the eight games the two sides have been involved in so far this season, the most prolific attacks meet the leakiest defences, at least as far as the statistics are concerned.
"The statistics don't interest me," said Gladbach coach Lucien Favre. "You have got to analyse at each game individually.
"Some of the goals they have conceded they aren't going to concede again in a hurry while they've scored at least two in each game they've played so far, which by itself shows what qualities they have.
"They are a very dangerous team."
With his own three-pronged attack of Patrick Herrmann, Juan Arango and Max Kruse, Favre's own side have been lethal in front of goal so far this season.
They are playing the same kind of football which saw them finish fourth two seasons ago with a deadly counter-attacking style which Hoffenheim coach Markus Gisdol is particularly wary of.
"For me, Gladbach are a top-six side," he said at a press conference. "We must not run head-on into one of their counters and make silly mistakes, because they get punished ruthlessly by Gladbach."
Nevertheless, Gisdol sees "the chance to get three points, if we are at our best" and the opportunity to bounce back from a humiliating 6-2 defeat to Stuttgart last time out.
"We must not let one bad game smear a positive impression," said Gisdol. "We've used the international break to make a general analysis of the games we've played so far."
Gisdol will be without the suspended Sejad Salihovic while creative forward Roberto Firmino has an ankle injury. Favre has a full complement of players at his disposal.
