Hoffenheim vs Monchengladbach
Germany – Bundesliga
Date: Saturday, 18 December 2021
Kick-off at 14:30 UK/ 15:30 CET
Venue: PreZero Arena.

Hoffenheim are in great form, and have placed themselves at the fourth position. Such has been their consistency lately, that they are the only team to stay unbeaten in the past five match-days in the league. Not even defending champions Bayern could manage that.

Meanwhile, Monchengladbach used to be one of the best in the German league earlier. But as of now, they are one of the worst. In fact, they are one of the only two teams to have lost the last four league games on the trot.

In addition, they also have a poor h2h record against this foe over the years.

Surely expect Hoffenheim to have the upper hand this Saturday at their home – PreZero Arena.
