Hoffenheim vs RB Leipzig Prediction

Schreuder’s men recorded a 2-2 draw on the road the last match-day, against Dusseldorf. In a thrilling set of ninety minutes, the home team found the back of the net in the 5th minute itself.

The visitors tried to respond, but they were reduced to ten on the pitch due to a red card. However, they did manage to score the equalizer in the 16th minute.

Later, the home team got a goal disallowed due to VAR, while the guests scored a goal in the 61st minute to attain a lead.

Unfortunately, the home team equalized the scoreline towards the end of the match. Meanwhile, the Red Bulls were held to a 1-1 draw at home by Paderborn. 

As things stand, the Bulls seem to be the favorites. They are on an unbeaten run of 12 match-ups, and remained so in 27 of their previous 30 games as well. They had also scored a total of 11 goals from their preceding four fixtures. On the road, they were unbeaten in 19 of their last 22 trips.

In addition, they scored four or more goals in three of their last four road matches, and kept clean sheets in five of their previous six away games.

On the other hand, Schreuder’s men lost seven of their last ten home matches, and have not kept a single clean sheet here since November. 

Moreover, they had also conceded a total of 31 goals from their preceding 12 appearances at home. Taking into account all these stats, expect Leipzig to post the three points on the board.
