Hoffenheim are hoping to win again following a 0-6 Bundesliga 1 victory over Darmstadt.

In that game, Hoffenheim had 60% possession and 12 attempts on goal with 7 of them on target. For Hoffenheim, the goals were scored by Ihlas Bebou (2', 51'), Maximilian Beier (6', 44'), Pavel Kadeřábek (22') and Ozan Kabak (26'). For their opponents, Darmstadt 98 had 10 shots at goal with 0 on target.

Fixtures with Hoffenheim have tended to be entertaining affairs lately with a lot of goalmouth action the rule rather than the exception. Over their past half dozen games alone, the sum total of 29 goals have been scored for both sides combined (at an average of 4.83 goals per game) with 17 of them being chalked up by Hoffenheim. That pattern isn’t assured to follow through into this next game, however.

Analysis of their past results shows that Hoffenheim:

  • are winless against Bayern Munich in their previous 6 matches in the league.
  • are unbeaten in their last 3 league matches at home.

📰 Team News: Hoffenheim

Dennis Geiger (muscular problems), Mergim Berisha (Cruciate ligament tear), Stanley Nsoki (Hip problems) and Marco John (Fitness) are unavailable for Hoffenheim gaffer Pellegrino Matarazzo.

It’s our opinion that Hoffenheim look set to kick off with a 3-4-1-2 formation featuring Oliver Baumann, Ozan Kabak, Florian Grillitsch, Kevin Akpoguma, Pavel Kaderabek, Marius Buelter, Grischa Proemel, Anton Stach, Andrej Kramaric, Ihlas Bebou and Maximilian Beier.

🗞️ Team News: Bayern Munich

Bayern Munich manager Thomas Tuchel has a number of players out of action. Jamal Musiala (Knee problems), Eric-Maxim Choupo-Moting (Ill), Harry Kane (Back problems), Kingsley Coman (Adductor injury), Min-jae Kim (Ankle problems), Raphaël Guerreiro (Ankle injury), Leroy Sané (Rest), Bouna Sarr (Cruciate ligament tear), Tarek Buchmann (Torn muscle bundle) and Serge Gnabry (Torn muscle bundle) won’t be making appearances. Sacha Boey is ineligible for this match because of suspension.

We reckon that Bayern appear most likely to play in a 4-2-3-1 lineup, starting the game with Manuel Neuer, Joshua Kimmich, Matthijs de Ligt, Eric Dier, Alphonso Davies, Leon Goretzka, Aleksandar Pavlovic, Lovro Zvonarek, Thomas Mueller, Bryan Zaragoza and Mathys Tel.

🔮 Prediction

In this match, Bayern Munich have it within them to dominate possession and create several successful chances.

Conversely, Hoffenheim will not find it easy to break down their defence but we do fancy them managing to get on the scoresheet, too.

We can therefore see a pretty comfortable 1-3 win for Bayern Munich when the full-time whistle blows.
