Football. German Championship. Bundesliga.
Kick-off: September 29 at 16:30
Location: Rhein-Neckar-Arena, Sinsheim
Our prediction: TO (2.5)
Best odds: @1.51* (Marathonbet)
(*odds may be subject to change closer to the beginning of the match)
Leipzig ambiguously spent past season, but still managed to reach the TOP-6 of German championship. What concerns current season, the team isn’t one of the better ones.
The Bulls are now 13th in the Bundesliga standings with 5 points gained in 4 matches. As for the squad performance, they seem to be good at attacking, but far from perfect in defense.
Before the upcoming match, Leipzig had a rather difficult match with Eintracht in which they failed to win (1:1). However, the Bulls looked better than their opponent in that match – they just had not enough luck.
Rangnick’s men are not in the status of a favorite in the forthcoming battle with Hoffenheim. This is largely due to the fact that Leipzig is a home team, and they do not look so strongly playing away matches.
Hoffenheim, unlike the closest rival, performed well during the past season. Their final results are unequivocal proof of that.
Hoffe ranked 3rd in the Bundesliga final table and secured a ticket to the group stage of the Champions League. As for the game style, the team traditionally played confidently in attack, but not always great in defense.
Similar situation is observed in the current season. Hoffenheim is in the top five leaders of German championship with good results of scored/conceded goals based on 5 matches – 9-8.
Certainly, Nagelsmann’s men act better at the native field, but they are pretty confident playing away matches as well. For example, they firmly crushed Hannover in a recent match (1:3).
Hoffenheim vs Leipzig Prediction
Our prediction for the match Hoffenheim vs Leipzig is TO (2.5) for the following reasons:
- Hoffenheim and Leipzig are usually very confident in the attack and profess attacking style of play.
- Both teams are far from perfect in defense.
- All of their head-to-head meetings ended with at least 3 goals scored. This is markedly in favor of our bet.
We expect a spectacular confrontation with numerous goals scored. Therefore, our bet TO (2.5) has chances of being successful.
