Hoffenheim vs Bayer Leverkusen
Date: 7 May 2022, Saturday
Kick-off at 14:30 UK / 15:30 CET
Venue: PreZero Arena (Sinsheim).
Hoffenheim continued to leak goals last weekend when they fell 3-4 at home to Champions League hopefuls Freiburg in the most exciting game of the Matchday.
The loss has significantly halted the team’s chances of securing European football next season. Sebastian Hoeness’ men are now five points shy of Union Berlin in seventh place and will almost certainly fail to make it to Europa Conference League in the remaining two matches.
To make matters worse, they are now set to face third-placed and in-form Bayer Leverkusen in their last home game of the season.
Bayer Leverkusen will travel to Sinsheim encouraged with two straight wins and RB Leipzig’s recent slip-ups.
Die Werkself are now four points clear off RB Leipzig in fifth place and have a great chance to secure a place in the elite continental competition next season with a victory over struggling Hoffenheim here.
Paulinho and Patrick Schick were on target for Leverkusen in a 2-0 victory over Eintracht Frankfurt on Monday evening.
The team led by Swiss manager Gerardo Seoane have notched six goals in the previous two Bundesliga affairs.
They will have a nice chance to keep the fine goal-scoring form going here against Hoffenheim who also favor attacking-minded football.
On top of that, the hosts have conceded six goals in the previous two rounds. They are winless in seven subsequent matches in the league and they have allowed two or more goals in five of the last six outings in the process.
Hoffenheim vs Bayer Leverkusen Head-to-head
This match should have goals in it and the recent tradition only confirms it since three of the previous four head to head games between these two rivals saw the Over 2.5 goals FT & Both Teams To Score option coming in.
The two sides will come into this off the back of two straight draws in their previous two H2H encounters.
Hoffenheim have only won 3 of the last 13 home matches against Bayer Leverkusen.
Hoffenheim vs Bayer Leverkusen Prediction
This is the clash between two attacking-minded sides and we expect to witness a goal fest on Saturday afternoon at PreZero Arena.
The Over 3.5 goals FT bet is thus well worth backing at the 2.10 odds, while we also like the 1.90 odds offered for Patrick Schick to score anytime for the visitors in such circumstances.
