Die Kraichgauer recovered from a shocking 2.1 defeat away at recently-promoted Fortuna Dusseldorf in a fine fashion. They took four points from a daunting schedule which saw them play the likes of Borussia Dortmund and Hannover in last two rounds. Julian Nagelsmann’s attacking line produced well on Tuesday evening at HDI-Arena where Die Kraichgauer dispatched Hannover 96 1-3.

Hoffenheim vs RB Leipzig: Head-to-head

  • This will only be the fifth head to head encounter between the two likes.
  • Hoffenheim won two, drew one and lost one so far.
  • Die Kraichgauer were just brutal in last term meetings against the Bulls.
  • Hoffenheim notched as many as nine goals in two demolishing victories against RB Leipzig (4-0 and 5-2).
  • All of previous four head to head matches brought three or more goals scored.

Hoffenheim vs RB Leipzig: Prediction

Whilst Hoffenheim improved attacking confidence by bagging three goals past Hannover on Tuesday, the Bulls grew defensively, keeping a clean sheet in a comfortable home victory over Stuttgart on Wednesday.

Willi Orban and Jean-Kevin Augustin inspired the 2-0 win to make it two wins and a draw in last three league games for the team led by Ralf Rangnick.

Nonetheless, it’s really hard to see another clean sheet coming for the visitors here. Hoffenheim play attacking-minded attractive football under Nagelsmann and the approach won’t be changes against Leipzig here.

All of seven official games Die Kraichgauer played this season saw goals at both ends. Knowing the visitors also have a strong attacking potential in their ranks.

We just have to back the Over 2.5 goals FT & BTTS bet at the odds of 1.66 as a banker here. Braver tipsters can go with four or more goals in the match at 2.20.

Hoffenheim vs RB Leipzig: Bet Tips

  • Over 2.5 goals FT & BTTS @ 1.66 (4/6)
  • Over 3.5 goals FT @ 2.20 (6/5).
