Hoffenheim vs Wolfsburg
Date: Sunday, 28 April 2019
Kick-Off 14:30 UK / 15:30 CET
Venue: PreZero Arena (Sinsheim).
Hoffenheim are flying high coming into final four rounds of the season in Bundesliga. They won four on the spin to climb up tp 6th place in the league ladder. Julian Nagelsmann’s men now even have a chance to challenge the fourth-place finish given Eintracht Frankfurt (who took just one point in past two rounds) are now just three points away.
Not only did Die Kraichgauer win four in a row, but they’ve done it in some style. Hoffenheim notched an amazing 15-goal tally in the process. They scored five in the thumping of Schalke last weekend away at VELTINS-ARENA in Gelsenkirchen. They previously kept their net untouched in back-to-back victories over Augsburg and Hertha BSC.
Ishak Belfodil was among the main catalysts for such an impressive attacking form of Hoffenheim’s as he scored seven goals in last four games. The Algerian forward thus took the most of Joelinton’s absence (through injury) and he is expected to lead the line on Sunday against Wolfsburg as well.
Hoffenheim vs Wolfsburg: Head-to-head
Wolfsburg lead the head to head tie by four wins, but they are winless in last three meetings against Die Kraichgauer.
Hoffenheim won two and drew one of last three home clashes against the Wolves without conceding a single goal along the way.
The streak includes a 3-0 victory for Die Kraichgauer in the previous H2H tie against Wolfsburg in Sinsheim.
This term’s clash at VOLKSWAGEN-ARENA ended in a 2-2 draw in early-December last year.
Hoffenheim vs Wolfsburg: Prediction
Wolfsburg can be a tough nut to crack for any team in the league on their day. They are just four points shy of 6th-placed Hoffenheim in the league standings after all. Nevertheless, they struggled for creativity in the final third against the likes of RB Leipzig and Eintracht Frankfurt in last two rounds.
Knowing the Wolves failed to find the back of the net in any of last three away clashes against Hoffenheim, we notice the value in backing the hosts to keep their net untouched at the odds of 3.25.
