We have an interesting clash from the Bundesliga on Friday night for Football betting as Hoffenheim host FC Koln.

Hoffenheim have a good strong home record against Cologne, but they are struggling with their current league form.

But can they get back on track with Cologne having failed to record a win out on their top-flight travels this season?

Hoffenheim Preview – Home win coming up?

Hoffenheim have won their last four home games in the Bundesliga against Cologne.

They have been impressive victories as well, Hoffenheim scoring at least three goals in each of those victories.

Three of those wins in the sequence happened with a clean sheet as well.

In the match outright for football betting, Hoffenheim are the even-money favourites for the win* (odds recorded 18:20 GMT on October 13th 2021).

Home and away Hoffenheim are on a six-match winning streak against Cologne in the league.

They are undefeated in ten against them.

But what about this season’s current form overall from Hoffenheim?

They have earned a W2 D2 L3 record.

One of those wins happened on the opening weekend of the new season, leaving them with one win in six since.

So their form is not hot.

* (odds recorded 18:20 GMT on October 13th 2021)


A positive for Hoffenheim is that their only win in their last six Bundesliga fixtures was at home against Wolfsburg.

Wolfsburg are currently fifth in the table, a spot higher than Friday night’s opponents Cologne.

A Hoffenheim 1- goal winning margin bet is at a quote of 3/1 which looks like a solid proposition* (odds recorded 18:20 GMT on October 13th 2021).

This should be a closely fought contest.

There has not been a clean sheet collected in a home game by Hoffenheim in any of their last six.

During that spell, they have averaged 1.7 goals per game against them.


Cologne Preview – Can Cologne’s defence stand up?

There has not been a league clean sheet collected by Cologne this season in the top flight.

Their overall record is W3 D3 L1 which reads very positive.

However, when we start breaking that down, we see things that may make us vulnerable on Friday.

For starters, all three league wins that FC Koln have earned happened at home against teams in the current bottom five.

Again, there has been no clean sheets from them on their travels.

In the match outright for Bundesliga football betting, the win for FC Koln is at 12/5* (odds recorded 18:20 GMT on October 13th 2021).

But to their credit, the only team that has gotten the better of them in league action this season is Bayern Munich.

Cologne last claimed a win over Hoffenheim in 2015 and you have to go back to 2014 for the last away win that The Billy Goats got against this opponent.

Cologne are currently undefeated in five (W2 D3) Bundesliga fixtures.

FC Koln have gone unbeaten in five league games for the first time since the end of the 2017 campaign.

They do look likely to get themselves on the scoresheet and therefore an over 3.5 goals option is at 13/10 to consider* (odds recorded 18:20 GMT on October 13th 2021).

Four of their last five visits to Hoffenheim have gone above the line.

Cologne do look competitive at the moment, but can they do enough to get that first away win?


Hoffenheim vs Cologne Betting Advice

This could be another fantastic meeting between the two teams.

It’s interesting that FC Koln’s run of 10 winless against Hoffenheim, is their longest active winless run against a single opponent.

While Bayern Munich are the only team to beat them, the fact that Cologne don’t have a clean sheet leaves them slightly vulnerable.

So the home win at even money will be the play for football betting* (odds recorded 18:20 GMT on October 13th 2021).
