RB Leipzig vs Hoffenheim Prediction

RB Leipzig have been tasting nothing but success in their last four games in the Bundesliga, the most recent of which was a 3-2 win over Paderborn on the road. The hosts are now unbeaten in their past seven clashes in all competitions and have dropped points just once in the process.

With twenty-seven points in the bag, the home side are just one point shy of overtaking current league leaders Borussia Monchengladbach.

On the other hand, Hoffenheim failed to bounce back from their humiliating 5-1 defeat at the hands of Mainz and managed no more than a 1-1 draw against the struggling Fortuna Dusseldorf. That too, at home.

The guests, nevertheless, are sporting a four-match winning streak on the road as of now. Even so, getting the better of Leipzig, that too in their own backyard, is by no means a walk in the park.

Julian Nagelsmann’s men are a force to be reckoned with on home soil. The resounding 8-0 win that they posted over Mainz certainly stands a testament to the aforementioned.

Taking into account that the hosts are unbeaten in their last two meetings with this foe here as well, Hoffenheim’s chances of a win this weekend are certainly looking bleak.

Nevertheless, count on the visiting contingent to put up a good fight. The visitors have scored two goals or more in each of their past four outings in all competitions.

Considering that three of their last four h2h encounters here have also witnessed both teams find the back of the net together, expect more of the same when they square up against each other come Saturday as well.
