Hoffenheim vs Ingolstadt
Date: Saturday, 4th March 2017
Kick off at 14:30 UK/ 15:30 CET
Venue: WIRSOL Rhein-Neckar-Arena.
Hoffenheim will have a nice chance to stay in the race for the Champions League spots with the victory over the relegation-threatened Ingolstadt’s side.
The visitors returned to the old habits losing the home match with Borussia Monchengladbach last weekend.
Hoffenheim have been on a tremendous run on home court where they are yet to lose the match since the very start of the season. The manager Julian Nagelsmann has been doing a tremendous job on the bench using his most favourite 3-5-2 formation with Sebastian Rudy as a defensive midfielder.
The team has won two on the bounce on home court with the total goal difference of 6-0.
Ingolstadt have been playing hot and cold lately. Truth be told, there are much more downswings since the team lost three of the last four matches.
More importantly, Maik Walpurgis’ side failed to find the net in each of the losses to Hertha, Bayern Munich and Borussia Monchengladbach.
Hoffenheim vs Ingolstadt: Head to head
Hoffenheim have been the superior side in H2H clashes. They have five wins and two draws, while the visitors never managed to see off the rivals from Sinsheim.
On the other hand, it is important to note that each of the last four meetings between the two sides ended with the option of both teams scoring.
