Hoffenheim will host the Turks of Basaksehir on the Europa League this Thursday…
Hoffenheim aren’t having a great campaign on the Europa League. The team was able to qualify for the Champions League last season after having a great campaign on the Bundesliga.
But they were unlucky to draw Liverpool in the play-off and ended up being eliminated.
On the Europa League they were place in this group along with these Turkish opponents, Braga and Ludogorets. This is a tough and balanced group.
But what’s surprising is seeing the Germans in last place of the group, with zero points gained. They are dead last and if they don’t win here they might be facing an early departure from this competition.
On the Bundesliga they sit in 4th place.

Hoffenheim vs Istanbul Basaksehir – Betting Tip and Prediction:
The Turks’ situation isn’t much better. With only 1 point gained, the Turkish team is also needing a good result to stay alive on this competition.
Basaksehir with Adebayor and Elia lost to Braga as visitors and then drew at home with Ludogorets.
On the Turkish Superleague the team is having a good campaign once again, sitting in 4th place in the league table with 16 points.
The Turkish roster has several well-known players such as Adebayor, Elia, Mossoró and Clichy. To summarize, they have an experienced and sneaky roster.
With the difference between the teams’ leaders, we’ll have an intense match here. And this kind of matches is usually keen for goals.
Both teams have a wide attacking potential and they should score, maybe even more than 1 goal each.
