Hoffenheim vs Hamburger SV
Germany – 1. Bundesliga
Date: Saturday, 14 April 2018
Kick-Off at 14:30UK
Venue: WIRSOL Rhein-Neckar Arena (Sinsheim).

One of the most interesting matches of 30th round in German Bundesliga is going to be contested between Hoffenheim and Hamburger. The hosts are still chasing one of the places in the European competitions, while the away side wants to get away from the relegation zone.

Home side has been in a very good run lately as they haven’t been defeated in the last six occasions. This good streak is keeping them in the game for winning Europa League spot, at least, and they are three points behind Eintracht Frankfurt and RB Leipzig. Julian Nagelsmann side is playing pretty attacking football and they have been productive in front of the oppositions’ goal. Hoffenheim are one of the best hosts in the competition since they have celebrated eight wins and allowed just two defeats when playing in front of their fans.

The visitors have been in relegation trouble in a couple of last seasons, but this time the situation is severe more than ever. Last time they managed to secure the survival after playout matches, but now they are five points behind that spot, and two more behind the nearest safe place. The glimmer of hope represents their latest victory over Schalke and their fans are hoping that the team can pick up where they left off. The main concern of Filip Kostic and the lads is the lack of productivity since Hamburger have scored the least number of goals in the league. They have also been the worst visiting side in the competition by managing too celebrate only one victory when playing at away pitches.

Hoffenheim vs Hamburger: Head-to-head

Another encouraging fact for the away fans is a two-win run against this opponent. In the last two outings in Sinsheim, Hamburger managed to remain undefeated. Their head to head clashes have been pretty efficient lately and in the last four games we were able to see at least three goals.

Hoffenheim vs Hamburger: Prediction

This is one of the last chances for the visitors to try avoiding the relegation at the end of the season and they might snatch some points from this one.

Since Hoffenheim are very efficient, in this match both teams should be able to find the back of the net at least once.
