Match status: 2019/20 Bundesliga - Matchweek 31
Kick-off:
Venue: PreZero Arena
Die Kraichgauer have been breezing past teams since the league restart and look good value for their league position. Earlier in the week, the club released a statement regarding the sack of Dutch gaffer Alfred Schreuder – one who has led the club with drive and enthusiasm all season.

The decision by the board was not taken lightly but one they had to make anyway, as both parties failed to reach agreements on future club philosophies. With less than 18 days to go till the end of the campaign, the club’s hierarchy have made the bold decision of switching head coaches.

Led by a team of coaches alongside Marcel Rapp, Hoffenheim will be looking to pick up from where Schreuder left off, starting with a positive result over RB Leipzig, with a place amongst the league’s top four in view.

The Red Bulls are just within a point of second-placed Borussia Dortmund and will be going all out for the win here to leapfrog their rivals on the league standings.

Hoffenheim vs RB Leipzig Team News

Under the tutelage of erstwhile manager Alfred Schreuder, Hoffenheim were on the road to the Merkur Spiel-Arena to take on Fortuna Dusseldorf on the last match-day, the former deemed overwhelming favorites for the win. However, Die Kraichgauer’s inconsistency let them down once again as they were held to a disappointing draw.

The home side gave them a run for their money, firing themselves ahead just inside five minutes. On going behind, Hoffenheim showed character to register two goals, either side of both halves, to overturn the deficit. Even so, a late Hennings goal clinched an important point for Dusseldorf.

The game marked Alfred Schreuder’s last in charge of Hoffenheim as he was booted out of the club on Tuesday morning. Now, the club will be banking on Marcel Rapp and his coaching team to steer them to continental qualification before the season curtains draw close.

RB Leipzig, on the other hand, played host to basement club Paderborn last time out, the latter laying blood and sweat to salvage a draw. Considered outsiders for the win, Paderborn gave the Red Bulls a run for their money and never really looked like losing the game.

Schick latched onto a precise Timo Werner-pass, slotting the ball home to give Julian Nagelsmann’s charges an early lead. Just when the players were beginning the celebrate, Paderborn’s Strohdiek struck back very late into stoppage time to condemn Leipzig to a draw.

For this fixture, RB Leipzig have to considered slight favorites for the win. They have maintained an unbeaten status in 12 fixtures on the bounce and have managed same in 27 of their preceding 30 games across all competitions.

Also, they have been firing on all cylinders with 11 goals from their previous 4 games. On the road, they have remained unbeaten in 19 of their previous 22 excursions. 

In sharp contrast, Hoffenheim have not been faring well on home turf having admitted defeat in seven of their preceding ten games on this ground. In fact, they have failed to keep a clean sheet here since November. Most worryingly, they have shipped a whopping 31 goals from their previous 12 home games.

Hoffenheim vs RB Leipzig Predictions

On paper, RB Leipzig seem overwhelming favorites for the win. However, as has become the norm, players tend to get fired-up for the first few games when a new manager arrives at their club – perhaps, trying their best to impress the gaffer. As such, Die Kraichgauer are likely to turn in a performance of the highest quality here.

Taking these into consideration, against all odds, Hoffenheim may manage to steal all three points from the claws of the Red Bulls this Friday. The safest punt would be a double chance backing Hoffenheim for the win. Though a risky bet, there is every possibility of affairs panning out in this manner.
