Odds: 11/4 odds taken 23:12 GMT, Wednesday 2nd December

This is an interesting one from the Europa League on Thursday night as Hoffenheim look to wrap up top spot in Group L.

It has been a perfect four wins from four from the Germans so far and a draw against Red Star on the night would be enough for them to finish top.

Red Star will be looking for a big three points out of this home fixture, which would pull them level on points with their opponents.

Red Star Preview – Red Star on the charge?

Since losing to Hoffenheim on Matchday One of this group stage campaign, Red Star Belgrade haven’t put a foot wrong.

It has been three wins from three from them since, and they have a lot to play for here.

They are the 11/5 underdogs for the win on the night however* (odds taken 23:12 GMT, Wednesday 2nd December).

But they may be happy just to turn up and not get beaten by the Germans as a draw would secure Red Star a top-two finish.

So the draw does immediately jump to mind here for football betting consideration, especially with that being enough for Hoffenheim to win the group.

Both parties could be pretty happy with that and the draw is at 13/5* (odds taken 23:12 GMT, Wednesday 2nd December).

What makes this game really interesting is the home form that Red Star have against German visitors.

It’s pretty good.

It is a W10 D3 L3 record that the Serbians have earned on home turf in European against German teams.

Our betting prediction:
1-1 Correct Score

It has been back to back home wins for them in the group stage (the first time that they have ever done that) having thumped Liberec 5-1 and Gent 2-1.

Their overall home record in the Europa League in Belgrade is W3 D2 L1, with Premier League side Arsenal being the only side to have won there.

So this is a really interesting set up. Will Red Star go for it, put the pedal to the floor and go for the three points? Or will they be happy to settle for a point?


Hoffenheim Preview – Germans only need a point

Hoffenhamein have done most of the hard work now in the group and just need to try and close out the top spot.

It has been four wins from four from them in the campaign and are already through to the round of 32.

They just need a point on Tuesday to go through as group winners.

On matchday one, Hoffenheim collected a comfortable 2-0 home win over the Serbians.

That was their first-ever European fixture against a team from Serbia so we don’t have anything more there to look at for football betting.

This is just the second time that Hoffenheim have been in the Europa League, not managing to qualify at their first attempt in the 2017/18 season.

Hoffenheim are fairly newcomers to all of this European action. They have only played 18 games but there has been a trend.

The Bundesliga side has scored in all 18 of their previous European fixtures.

Both teams to score on the night for football betting is at 6/10* (odds taken 23:12 GMT, Wednesday 2nd December).

Hoffenheim are in some patchy form at the moment across all competitions, which may cast doubt on them.

They have taken only two wins in their last six games in all competitions, but then both of those successes were in the Europa League.

We think that they can be relied upon well enough to put a goal on the board in the fixture. As for getting a victory, that could be a different thing.
