THE TEAM NEWS

HOFFENHEIM

  • Hoffenheim remained right in the hunt for a European spot after they drew level on points with Wolfsburg in sixth place thanks to a solid win on the road at Augsburg on Wednesday with their second half performance giving them a great platform to build on here.
  • With the scores level at the break, two goals in quick succession from Moanes Dabour gave Hoffenheim a comfortable lead before Ihlas Bebou sealed the win late on after Augsburg had pulled one back.
  • The managerless side only have a couple of injury issues ahead of this game with Ishak Belfodil out while Sargis Adamyan is a doubt but they have plenty of options at their disposal with Andrej Kramaric hoping for a place in the starting XI.

UNION BERLIN

  • After six matches without a win in the Bundesliga, Union Berlin made it back-to-back wins as they edged the three points at home to bottom of the table Paderborn in midweek with that success ensuring they will still be in the top flight next season.
  • An own goal just before the half-hour mark was enough for Union to seal the victory but this is likely to be a much tougher contest for them, especially as they come up against a side with plenty still to play for.
  • Union will want to end their season on a high and the pressure is off them after winning their last but while they could also receive a fitness boost here with Akaki Gogia and Christopher Lenz both close to a return to action.

THE PREDICTION

Hoffenheim come into this game level on points with Wolfsburg as the race for sixth place is set to go down to the wire. The hosts will be full of confidence after putting in an assured display to see off Augsburg in midweek and will now look to make it back-to-back wins as they host Union Berlin. The pressure is off the visitors after winning their last two games to ensure they will play in the Bundesliga again next season and that should result in an open game with plenty of goals.
