Hoffenheim vs Koln: Preview and Predictions

Hoffenheim vs Koln
Germany – Bundesliga
Date: Saturday, 31 March 2018
Kick-Off at 14:30 UK
Venue: WIRSOL Rhein-Neckar-Arena (Sinsheim).

German Bundesliga is back in action with a very interesting Matchday after the international break. One of the most entertaining games to watch will be played at WIRSOL Rhein-Neckar-Arena in Sinsheim where Hoffenheim will be hoping to extend the fine run of result against the relegation strugglers Koln.

Whilst at first sight this could seem to be a one-way street for the hosts, we honestly doubt in such scenario given that the Billy Goats will head into this high on confidence after a huge 2-0 victory over top-four side Bayer Leverkusen in the previous round. Koln have spent most of the season at the very foot of the Bundesliga standings, but that win has finally moved them away from the rock-bottom.

Stephan Ruthenbeck’s men are now five points off the safe zone and the win over Die Werkself has given them a massive confidence-boost ahead of the final set of fixtures. Nonetheless, the Billy Goats will still need one of the best performances in the season to back up such success and leave Sinsheim as a victorious side since Die Kraichgauer have been enjoying q superb form lately with two wins and a draw in last three league ties. The draw happened last time out away at Borussia Monchengladbach, and it was unlucky one since the Foals have managed to level the score late in the stoppage time (3-3 at the end).

Hoffenheim vs Koln: Head-to-head

Hoffenheim have an opportunity to make it all square at four wins apiece with the result here.

Die Kraichgauer have demolished Koln in the first match the two sides have played in this season, 0-3 away at RheinEnergieStadion.

In Sinsheim, the H2H statistics is all levelled at 3 wins, draws and losses for each of the sides.

Hoffenheim vs Koln: Prediction

Both teams will come into this high on confidence and this one really promises goals at both ends.

The bookies see Hoffenheim as the clear favourites, but we will try and catch the value in backing the home win & BTTS rather than take only the home win at the 1.53 odds.
