THE PREDICTION

With Hoffenheim currently entrenched in midtable, they will be desperate to get back to winning ways here and move to within a point of opponents Koln. However, the visitors have not lost in their last five Bundesliga fixtures and will represent tough opposition. With home advantage in their favour, Hoffenheim won’t afraid of taking the fight to Koln offensively, pushing bodies forward in a bid to gain the three points, although this in turn may see Koln afforded opportunities on the counter attack, which they are more than good enough to take advantage of when considering that they have found the net at least once in every league game they have played so far this season. This should lead to a high entertaining encounter with chances falling to both sides. With that in mind, back both teams to score, another scenario that has occurred in all seven of Koln’s Bundesliga matches played so far in 2021-22.
