Hoffenheim Prediction – Can Hoffenheim make it six on the bounce?

After a pretty average to poor start to the new German top flight season, which saw Hoffenheim gain just 1 win out of their first 6 matches overall, Sunday evening’s hosts have suddenly exploded into life by winning their last 5 matches on the trot.

A 3-2 home win against Werder Bremen was all Hoffenheim had to show for their efforts in the early weeks of the new Bundesliga season, having also suffered defeats to Eintracht Frankfurt, Freiburg and Borussia Moenchengladbach, but the hosts have subsequently turned things around in dramatic fashion.

An unlikely 2-1 win away from home at Bayern Munich sparked a revival and Hoffenheim went on to gain further victories against Schalke 04, Hertha Berlin, Paderborn and Cologne, with this upturn in fortunes helping to lift the hosts up into 6th place in the Bundesliga.

Another three points this Sunday evening could see Hoffenheim jump into 2nd place behind Borussia Moenchengladbach if other results go their way, as the hosts look to further improve upon their home record which stands at 3-0-2 8/8.

Mainz Prediction – Can Mainz avoid third defeat on trot?

Mainz were handed back-to-back defeats in the German top flight just before the international break as they lost to RB Leipzig in a crushing 8-0 demolition which was followed by a 3-2 loss at home to Union Berlin.

Although they’ve had 2 weeks in which to re-group and hit the refresh button, the visitors face a tough trip to face an in-form Hoffenheim outfit, while Mainz’s confidence levels will be low to say the least as they look to avoid a third defeat on the trot.

Mainz currently sit third from bottom in the Bundesliga and are just 2 points above the relegation zone, but this trip to Hoffenheim could end in bitter disappointment and Mainz in the bottom two if Cologne cause an upset at RB Leipzig.

But it’s Mainz’s poor results away from home which have caused most of the damage so far this season as their record of 1-0-5 4/21 includes defeats at Freiburg, Bayern Munich, Schalke 04, Fortuna Dusseldorf and RB Leipzig.


Key-Facts – Hoffenheim vs Mainz

  • Hoffenheim have won their last 5 matches on the trot in the Bundesliga
  • Mainz have lost 12 of their last 15 away matches in the Bundesliga
  • A win for Hoffenheim on Sunday could lift them up into 2nd place


Betting Tips Verdict

Hoffenheim are on a roll and it’ll be hard for Mainz to stop them here.
