- Only three teams have conceded more shots on target than Frankfurt away in the Bundesliga this term.
Moving in the right direction
For some time, Saturday’s hosts were blighted by inconsistency. One week, they looked sharp and made light work of securing all three points, then the next, they weren’t at the races, though over the last couple of weeks, it looks as though Sebastian Hoeneß’s men have got their acts together, winning two on the bounce. The six goals that they scored last time out ought to have given them a real confidence boost, that’s for sure.
At home in the league, Hoffenheim are no easy team to face. They’ve won each of their last four, scoring at least twice in each of those four, conceding just a single goal in the process.
Visitors making strides
After what was a disappointing start to the campaign, a start that left Frankfurt hovering above the dreaded drop-zone, things have improved of late. Oliver Glasner’s men have won each of their last three league matches, while they’re now unbeaten in four. Such a run of form has seen Saturday’s visitors climb to 12th in the Bundesliga table, and a win here would likely see them reach the top half. What a difference a few positive results can make.
Even on the road of late, Die Adler have got their act together, winning each of their last two, the most recent of which being a win away against high-flyers Freiburg, while they’ve now won three out of four away from the comforts of Deutsche Bank Park.
Hoffenheim vs Frankfurt Predictions
With both teams arriving here in solid form, this may look like a close call. It may even look as though the visitors represent a shade of value given their recent efforts on the road, though if we scratch beneath the surface, the hosts are hard to oppose, even at a touch of odds-on.
Hoffenheim rank as one of the best teams in the league in terms of conceding goals at home, shipping just one in their last four, while they’ve scored no shortage at the other end, firing in 12 in those four matches. They also have a 100% record at home against sides currently in the bottom half, like Frankfurt. Throw in that the away side has struggled for clean sheets on the road, and has a habit of allowing teams too many efforts on goal and the home win becomes the preferred betting route.
