Hoffenheim vs Freiburg
Date: Sunday, 15 September 2019
Kick-off at 14:30 UK / 15:30 CET
Venue: Wirsol Rhein-Neckar Arena (Sinsheim).
Despite the initial stumble, Hoffenheim are unbeaten in their past two games, the last of which was a stalemate at the home of Leverkusen, prior to the international break.
However, on home soil, Alfred Schreuder’s men featured in an exciting five-goal thriller against Werder Bremen, with final scores reading 3-2 in their favor. The hosts almost shared the spoils alongside their counterparts in that clash and would have done so, had it not been for Kaderabak scoring the winning goal three minutes before the end of regulation time.
The visitors, on the other hand, who had got off to an impressive two-match winning streak in the league, lost 2-1 against newly promoted FC Koln in their most recent matchup at home. On the road though, the squad picked up all three points against Paderborn with a comfortable 3-1 scoreline.
Nevertheless, getting the better of Hoffenheim, that too at home, will be a tough task at hand for Freiburg who have not been faring well in their previous visits here.
Hoffenheim vs Freiburg Head to head (h2h)
- Half of their last six clashes have seen Hoffenheim emerge victoriously.

Hoffenheim vs Freiburg Prediction
The home team have turned things around from their opening game loss and have also tasted success in their last clash on home soil. Furthermore, it needs saying that Hoffenheim have been at the losing end just twice in their previous eight Bundesliga games at home.
Although Freiburg did come out on top in their last outing, it is worth mentioning that the visitors have not been at their best in their trips on the road. The fact that they were able to manage a win on just two occasions away from home throughout the previous campaign is a testament to that as well.
Additionally, the guests have not got the better of Hoffenheim in their last three visits in a running either. Given the unbeaten streak that Schreuder’s men are on at the moment as well, the win is more than likely to swing in Hoffenheim at the last blast of the whistle.
The last six clashes between the two sides here have seen neither team walk away with a clean sheet intact. Considering that five of those six matches have also been high scoring ones, expect both the teams to get their names on the scoresheet and to post over 2.5 goals on the scorecards by the end of the ninety minutes.
