THE PREDICTION

Hoffenheim went from joy to despair this week, recording their biggest Bundesliga win of the season at home to Werder Bremen last Sunday before being knocked out of the Europa League by Molde. That rather sums up their erratic campaign, which has not been aided by constant injury issues. Away from home, Sebastian Hoeness’ side have yet to record two results the same in successive league matches. Union Berlin, meanwhile, ended a five-match winless run with a 1-0 success at Freiburg last Saturday to keep their dreams of a top-six finish alive. Predicting the result with Hoffenheim is tricky, so it may be better to look to the goals markets instead. Union have failed to score just once in the capital this term, while nine of TSG’s last 10 Bundesliga games have produced three or more goals, so either Both Teams To Score or Over 2.5 Goals are good options here.
