Hoffenheim vs Arminia Bielefeld
Date: Saturday, 16 January 2021
Kick-off at 14:30 UK/ 15:30 CET
Venue: PreZero Arena (Sinsheim).
Hoffenheim fell back into the losing streak again after showing promise with an earlier away win. The host has lost four of their last five matches with a two-game losing streak in the campaign.
They are closer to the relegation zone this term, with 15 points from 4 wins and a draw in 15 attempts. The 4-0 loss on the road against Schalke last time out might have affected the morale of the players.
Bielefeld has been showing signs of improvement as of late in the campaign. The visitor has won two of their recent three fixtures in the schedule, picking up 13 points from 4 wins and a draw.
They will visit on the back of a 1-0 win at home against the likes of Hertha Berlin from their previous league encounter.
Hoffenheim vs Arminia Bielefeld Head-to-head (h2h)

- The host has won both their games in that schedule, with clean sheets in both fixtures.
Hoffenheim vs Arminia Bielefeld Prediction
Hoffenheim enjoys the ground advantage and it will be their strongest suit in the game. The host has an old history of winning both clashes clean against the guest in the 2008/09 Bundesliga season. Besides, they have a slight two-point lead over Bielefeld and will try to keep that lead to avoid relegation this season.
With both teams closer to the relegation zone, their form must be almost similar to each other. The host has scored 22 goals in their 15 appearances so far, while Bielefeld has hardly reached 10 goals in their record at the same time.
Bielefeld hasn’t scored a goal against the host in their two h2h meetings. But since the host is on the back of a defeat, we can expect the visitor to hurt the home team in the game. Hence, the tip for BTTS will probably be a suitable option in the encounter.
The home win in full-time will probably be the best bet for the punters regarding the host’s ground advantage and their overall performance this season. Besides, the away team has won only one of their last seven outings in Bundesliga this term.
