RB Leipzig vs Hoffenheim: Prediction and Betting Tips
RB Leipzig set for a final push toward the top
Leipzig covered some ground in the last round with Bayern and came within five points of the Bundesliga Leaders after the champions drew at home to Union Berlin and Leipzig beat Bremen away from home 4-1. This win comes for Leipzig after they had lost at home to Bayern 0-1 and suffered their first loss in eight matches.
Coach Julian Nagelsmann has done a great job so far with his team as they are the only real contenders to Bayern Munich at the top of the table. Leipzig have the best defense in the league with 13 clean sheets in 28 games. Offensively, Leipzig have done well as they have scored 12 goals in their last six matches in the Bundesliga.
Hoffenheim’s situation can get critical
Three defeats and one draw in their last four games have seen Hoffenheim slip down to 12th position in the Bundesliga standings. Thye were knocked out of the Europa League as well by Molde thus they have no chance of catching up with a European spot like they did last season, on the contrary, they are just five points away from the relegation zone.
In their last three losses, Hoffenheim conceded first and went on to lose. With 19 of their matches witnessing the first scorer going on to win the game, it is important for coach Sebastian Hoeness’s team to start well if they want to get the three points here. They have the best scoring record in the bottom half table with 41 goals scored in 28 matches.
- Leipzig’s last four of five matches have seen under 3.5 goals
- Leipzig have won four of their last six home games
- Hoffenheim’s last six matches have seen under 3.5 goals
- Hoffenheim have scored two goals in three away matches
RB Leipzig vs Hoffenheim Prediction
Leipzig will not lose their chance to stay intact with the leader Bayern, hoping for the Bavarians to keep losing points and decrease the gap between them.
