TSG Hoffenheim vs Hertha Berlin SC
Date: Sunday, 14 April 2019
Kick-Off 12:30 UK / 13:30 CET
Venue: PreZero Arena (Sinsheim).
Hoffenheim and Hertha come into Sunday’s meeting at PreZero Arena in completely opposite spirits.
The hosts are flying high after a pair of demolishing wins over Bayer Leverkusen and Augsburg, each of which daw Die Kraichgauer bag four goals.
Croatian striker Andrej Kramaric has been in great form for the hosts lately. He took his league tally to 15 goals bagging one in each of last two league wins.
Kramaric bagged seven goals in last eight matches for Hoffenheim and Croatian national team. His fellow striker Ishak Belfodil was particularly inspired in last two outings as well. The Algerian forward notched five goals in last two rounds taking the most of Joelinton’s absence through injury.
This duo should have plenty of room to create in the final third here against Hertha who were been especially vulnerable at the back in the last couple of weeks.
Hoffenheim vs Hertha Berlin: Head-to-head
The head to head stats suggest we should be in for goals galore on Sunday in Sinsheim.
Each of last four H2H ties saw goals scored at both ends.
Teams shared spoils in a six-goal thriller (3-3) when they locked horns in this term of Bundesliga in late-November at Olympiastadion Berlin.
Hoffenheim vs Hertha Berlin: Prediction
Hertha were in completely opposite rhythm of late. They lost four on the trot in the league conceding at least two goals in each of defeats in the process. The last one came last weekend at home against the likes of Fortuna Dusseldorf (1-2).
The Old Lady thus have nowhere to go in remaining six rounds of the season and they will clearly lack motivation here in Sinsheim as well. Hoffenheim, on the other hand, hold the seventh place and hope they can break into top six to feature Europa League football next season at least.
We expect the home win in a high-scoring contest and both Kramaric and Belfodil on the scoreline. It’s up to you to cherry pick one of them for the anytime goal-scorer bet.
