📊 Form Guide

Cologne DLLDLW

Cologne fans will want a repeat of their previous result, being a 0-6 DFB-Pokal success vs Altglienicke.

For Cologne, the goalscorers were Jonas Hector (17'), Elvis Rexhbecaj (36', 63'), Rafael Czichos (43'), Salih Özcan (68') and Dominick Drexler (85').

Köln have been finding it hard to keep clean sheets of late, but they’ve also managed to convert their own chances into goals. Analysis of their previous 6 games shows that Köln have been punished defensively in 5 of them as well as getting on the scoresheet in 6 of those matches. That trend might not follow through into this next game, though.

Hoffenheim DLWWWD

Previously, Hoffenheim drew 1-1 in the DFB-Pokal match with Chemnitzer FC.

In that match, Hoffenheim had 69% possession and 28 attempts at goal with 7 on target. The only player on the scoresheet for Hoffenheim was Andrej Kramarić (48', 111'). On the other side, Chemnitzer FC had 9 attempts at goal with 3 of them on target. Freiberger (59') and Christian Bickel (100') scored for Chemnitzer FC.

Indicating their bias toward eventful encounters, we’ve seen goals 20 times in the last six games in which Hoffenheim have played, making it a mean average of 3.33 goals each fixture. Their opponents have managed 6 from this total.

👥 Head to head

Delving into their past head to head results stretching back to 03/12/2016 shows that these fixtures have not been kind to Cologne. They’ve not managed to come away with any victories whatsoever whereas Hoffenheim have been dominant against them, beating them in 83 per cent of those match-ups.

There were also goals galore in those games, with 22 in all at an average of 3.67 goals per match.

The previous league meeting featuring these sides was Bundesliga 1 match day 28 on 27/05/2020 and the score finished Hoffenheim 3-1 Cologne.

That day, Hoffenheim managed 43% possession and 8 attempts on goal with 6 on target. The scorers were Christoph Baumgartner (11', 46') and Steven Zuber (48').

Cologne had 17 shots on goal with 6 on target. Florian Kainz (60') scored.

The referee was Felix Brych.

🗞️ Team News: Cologne

Cologne manager Markus Gisdol has zero fitness worries whatsoever ahead of this game thanks to a fully injury-free group to choose from.

We think that Köln may well go for a 4-2-3-1 system, beginning the first half with Timo Horn, Jannes-Kilian Horn, Rafael Czichos, Sebastiaan Bornauw, Kingsley Ehizibue, Jonas Hector, Ellyes Skhiri, Jan Thielmann, Ondrej Duda, Dominick Drexler and Sebastian Andersson.

ℹ️ Team News: Hoffenheim

Hoffenheim boss Sebastian Hoeneß has to choose a team with limited availability. Konstantinos Stafylidis (Shoulder Injury), Benjamin Hübner (Tear in a joint capsule), Stefan Posch (Shin bone bruise), Pavel Kaderabek (Hamstring Injury) and Havard Nordtveit (Fractured Foot) can’t be considered.

We’re of the thinking that Hoffenheim could decide to play in a 4-4-2 formation with a starting lineup of Oliver Baumann, Kevin Akpoguma, Kevin Vogt, Ermin Bicakcic, Robert Skov, Christoph Baumgartner, Diadié Samassékou, Florian Grillitsch, Dennis Geiger, Andrej Kramaric and Munas Dabbur.

💭 Prediction

We are of the inclination to think that Hoffenheim and Cologne should end up playing out a closely-fought contest here.

A close call, and we think a draw is quite likely - as are goals. Therefore, we predict a really entertaining tussle with a 2-2 score at the end of this game.
