Hoffenheim: Winless in Seven Games

Winless in their previous six games, Hoffenheim were well aware of the importance of a win against Freiburg to keep their hopes of finishing among the European places alive. Despite scoring three goals, Hoffenheim failed to win the game allowing four from Freiburg.

Andrej Kramaric has scored eight goals in ten appearances against Freiburg. The Croatians both scored and assisted in the same game for the first time this season. The striker was very disappointed after the game declaring that they don’t have a single chance to play in Europe next season after dropping 18 points in their last seven fixtures.

Just two months ago, Hoffenheim was fighting for a top-four finish but the defeat against relegation-threatened Hertha Berlin somehow affected their morale and stopped their superb run of form. They are sitting eight in the standings, six points behind the top six – they have nothing to play for.

Following his fifth yellow card of the season, Stefan Posch missed last weekend against Freiburg but he will play against Leverkusen after serving his one-game suspension. Chris Richards, Benjamin Hubner, Ermin Bicakcic, and Havard Nordtveit are all ruled out while another option for the backline Florian Grillitsch is labeled as a doubt due to a muscular problem. Given their morale, lack of desire, and form, Hoffenheim is a team to fade therefore we won’t include them in our soccer picks and parlays.

Leverkusen: Strong On the Road

Paulinho and Patrik Schick picked up the goals as Bayer Leverkusen beat Eintracht Frankfurt 2-0 and tightened their grip on third place with two games to go till the end of the season. Paulinho’s fourth goal of the campaign set a new personal best for him in the Bundesliga. Patrik Schick becomes the second-season top goalscorer in Leverkusen’s history with 22 goals just three behind Stefan Kießling’s 25 goals in the 2012/13 campaign.

Diaby added two more assists to his season tally to arrive at 11 for the campaign. Only Thomas Müller and Christopher Nkunku have more across the division. The French international is only the second player in the German top-flight league this season with double figures for both goals and assists. Leverkusen is just three goals away from breaking their goal record in a Bundesliga season and we expect them to reach at least 77 goals by the end of the season.

Bayer Leverkusen remains third in the Bundesliga table with 58 points from 32 games. They will be looking to pick up their third win in a row on Saturday as they target a spot among Europe’s finest next season. The hosts remain without the services of Florian Wirtz, Jeremie Frimpong, Timothy Fosu-Mensah, Amine Adli, and Karim Bellarabi as they are all injured.

Despite winning their last two matches, the visitors continue to play far from their best at the moment but we’ve seen signs of improvement and we expect them once again to come on top and take advantage of their opponents’ struggles. If you’re betting you should always be aware of the importance of the game for both teams.

Hoffenheim vs Leverkusen Head-to-Head

Regarding Bayern’s recent results in Munich, they are without a defeat for seven straight fixtures, winning in five and posting two draws. The fun part here is that Bayern allowed in five matches, which wasn’t the case in the earlier stages of the season. Bayern won the reverse match beating Dortmund 3-2 on the road.

All of the previous five mutual encounters between the two sides saw over 3 ½ goals and both teams scored, and in all of them, Bayern ended up on the winning side. The hosts are the best home team in the league with 12 wins in 15 games in front of their fans, and 43 goals scored in the process while Dortmund is the second-best away team in Bundesliga with eight wins and just four defeats in 15 road games.

Hoffenheim vs Leverkusen Predictions

In spite of playing on the road, the visitors enter this clash as favorites being priced at -105 on the three-way moneyline according to the latest soccer odds while the goal line is set at 3½.

Leverkusen should have enough to return home with the three points but the price is a bit risky. We’ve seen four goals in the reverse fixture and we expect another goal fest this time around. Leverkusen is shaky at the back against opponents with good attacking quality.

Patrik Schick scored a brace in the reverse fixture and he found his scoring boots after coming back from injury netting two goals in his last two appearances for the club so if you like your props you should back him to find the back of the net.

Pick: Over 3½ goals in the match at +115
