RB Leipzig vs Hoffenheim
Germany – Bundesliga
Date: Saturday, 21 April 2018
Kick-Off at 14:30 UK
Venue: Red Bull Arena (Leipzig).
RB Leipzig will host Hoffenhiem in a super important six-pointer in the battle for the Champions League spot next term. The teams are separated by a single point ahead of Saturday’s clash, but they both need a victory here given that the fourth-placed Borussia Dortmund are four points away with just four games left to play.
We thus have reasons to expect a true spectacle when these two outfits clash each other at Red Bull Arena. Hoffenheim come into the game as the form favourites since Leipzig’s defensive line was just horrific in the last couple of weeks. Yes, that is indeed the correct word given that the hosts shipped ten goals in last three matches across competitions.
Julian Nagelsmann has a strong firepower on display up front with the likes of Marc Uth, Serge Gnabry and Andrej Kramaric all ready to shine and exploit the mentioned holes in the Bulls’ defensive line.
RB Leipzig vs Hoffenheim: Head-to-head
The head to head statistics is all tied at a single win, draw and defeat for each of the teams.
Leipzig were much more successful in the previous term when they took four points in two games against Die Kraichgauer.
Hoffenheim, however, clinched a demolishing 4-0 victory when the two teams met this term at WIRSOL-Rhein-Neckar-Arena.
RB Leipzig vs Hoffenheim: Prediction
The visitors are really enjoying their form in the final quarter of the season. They won four and drew two of last six league outings netting two or more goals in five of them. They are now up against the opposition which proved out to be very easy to break down in the most recent set of fixtures. You can have Hoffenheim to net two or more goals in the match at the 2.20 odds.
Obviously, Leipzig tend to produce at the other end as well, particularly in front of the home crowd. Over 2.5 goals FT & BTTS is a must-take pick at the odds of 1.72, while you can alternatively try with Timo Werner to score anytime. The German forward scored a goal in three of last four home matches for Leipzig in all competitions.
