RB Leipzig: Dominant Under Rose

RB Leipzig enters this clash on the back of a 2-1 win over Bruno Labbadia’s Stuttgart in the league. A brace from Hungarian midfielder Dominik Szoboszlai secured the win for Marco Rose’s troops. They narrowed the gap behind Bundesliga leader Bayern Munich to just two points and will be looking to maintain their winning streak on the first day of February as they play host to Hoffenheim in the round of 16 of DFB Pokal.

Rose can be pleased with his team’s attacking form in January, as Die Roten Bullen netted eight goals in the previous two wins over Schalke and Stuttgart. His team should have plenty of room to extend such a fine attacking form here against Hoffenheim, which has been dreadful defensively since the Bundesliga restart, so we will include them in our soccer picks and parlays.

The hosts still remain in the Champions League, but with Pep Guardiola’s Manchester City awaiting them in the round of 16, their chances of progressing in that competition are extremely slim. Rose will be determined to knock out Hoffenheim on Wednesday and move into the last eight of the German Cup, with his side capable of becoming one of the few teams in German soccer history to retain the cup title.

Dani Olmo was subbed at half-time of his side’s win against Stuttgart due to a hamstring injury, which could keep the Spanish midfielder sidelined until the end of February. Abdou Diallo, Peter Gulasci, and Christopher Nkunku all remain unavailable, with Rose likely to provide the likes of Yussuf Poulsen, Emil Forsberg, and Konrad Laimer starts after they came off the bench on Friday.

Hoffenheim: Struggling at the Back

Hoffenheim allowed four goals in a tough home defeat at the hands of Gladbach on Saturday afternoon. The team picked up just one point in three league games this month, allowing as many as nine goals in the process. Also, it is worth noting that Hoffenheim has managed just one win in the previous six away outings in Bundesliga and is now up against one of the best teams in the German top flight on the road.

Hoffenheim has failed to progress beyond the round of 16 of the DFB-Pokal in the last seven campaigns, having fallen at the quarter-final stage in six of the previous eight. The club has never gone beyond the last eight in this competition.

Based on current form and defensive struggles pulling away an upset away to Leipzig on Wednesday does not appear to be a likely proposition, so if you’re betting online, you should continue fading Hoffenheim. The team will be without Angelo Stiller, Kevin Vogt, Robert Skov, Kevin Akpoguma, Jacob Bruun Larsen, and Grischa Promel due to injury.

RB Leipzig vs Hoffenheim Picks and Prediction

The hosts enter this clash as heavy favorites, priced at -200 on the three-way moneyline according to the latest soccer odds, while the goal line is set at three.

Although we expect Marco Rose to rest some of his key players, Leipzig’s defense of their DFB-Pokal title should continue beyond Wednesday’s clash. The visitors enter this clash on a horrible run of form and manager Andre Breitenreiter is under huge pressure. We expect an easy home win, with RB Leipzig having the necessary weapons to cover the spread.
