Sebastian Hennesse’s side have been in the Champions League zone for a long time, but they failed completely in January: they suffered four defeats in a row and slipped down to fifth place. However, the situation improved in February, with three wins in a row and a return to fourth place. Last weekend, the Village fans were delighted once again with a 0-1 away win against Cologne thanks to a Stefan Posch (1.3) goal. The Bilo-Syni have collected 43 points in 25 rounds, and the Bilo-Syni are also delighting their fans with 48 goals scored and 36 conceded, averaging 3.5 goals per game.
The main attacking force is Togolese Ilhas Bebu, who has already scored 7 times. Joining him in scoring is Croatian Andrej Kramaric and Frenchman Georginho Rutter (10 goals apiece). To make matters worse, the hosts have a full injury rash – defenders Bickacic, Richards and Rudy, midfielders Northwaite and Geiger, and forwards Aslaini and Skov are all out injured.
Julian Naggelsmann’s side topped the Bundesliga standings with a nine-point lead. In 25 games, they have scored 59 points, their best goal difference (76 goals scored, 27 conceded). Poland’s Robert Lewandowski is yet another record-breaking goalscorer (26 goals). The Reds also have the league’s top assist, Thomas Muller (16 assists). Last weekend, the Reds scored a 1-1 draw with Bayer Leverkusen, but there was plenty more room to score.
As it turned out, all the goals were saved for the Champions League tie against Salzburg – Bayern won 7-1 last Tuesday to advance to the quarter-finals (2.3). Midfielders Leon Goretzka and Corrente Tolisso, as well as left-back Alfonso Davies, are both out.
This season the teams have already met in the first round of the domestic championship, and that ended in a 4-0 win for the Red-Whites. In general, meetings between these clubs are productive with an average of 4 goals per game.
Hoffenheim vs Bayern
The visitors are superior in class and will certainly clinch their ninth league title in a row this season. Lewandowski is breaking records one after the other, and Nagelsmann’s whole attacking line is a real headache for any club in the world. However, the hosts will not go down without a fight – they’ve won four of their last four games, and the home stands will encourage the Magpies to play open football. The statistics show that these teams regularly hit the total of goals more than 3.5 in their head-to-head games. I think that will be the case on Saturday.
