Hoffenheim – Hertha
Hoffenheim faces Hertha BSC in a game from the 29th round of the German Bundesliga. We are about to take a look at this fixture at the PreZero Arena on Sunday afternoon.
Hoffenheim continue with their fight for another European qualification. Right now Julian Nagelsmann’s team is 7th in the league standings with 44 points, being just one point behind the 6th Wolfsburg. Hoffenheim have a very realistic chance to finish in the Top 6 of the Bundesliga, if they manage to keep up a good level until the end of the season.
RIght now Hoffenheim have a Bundesliga record of 11 wins, 11 draws and 6 defeats. Since their loss against Eintracht Frankfurt, Hoffe are unbeaten in four consecutive games, winning three of them. This is exactly the type of form which would allow them to play in Europe again.
In their last match in the league Hoffenheim celebrated a 4-0 win over Augsburg away from home, which was a terrific performance. Ishak Belfodil scored a hattrick for the visitors, while Andrej Kramaric also scored once for Hoffenheim.
In the same time Hertha are 11th in the Bundesliga standings wtih 35 points. The Old Lady have a record of 9 wins, 8 draws and 11 losses since the beginning of the season. But right now Hertha are in a very bad shape, losing four consecutive times in the league. If they continue to perform like this, they will have a difficult time against Hoffenheim on Sunday.
In their last game in the league Hertha hosted Fortuna Dusseldorf in Berlin, but suffered a 1-2 defeat. Marko Grujic scored for the Old Lady, but Benito Raman scored a brace for the visitors and clinced the win for Fortuna.
These are our thoughts about the Bundesliga clash between Hoffenheim and Hertha BSC on Sunday afternoon. What’s your prediction?
