Hoffenheim vs Koln: Hoffenheim hosts Koln at the Rhein-Neckar-Arena this
Saturday on the Bundesliga’s 28th round.
Although with very different objectives, the latest results have given both teams hope on the competition.
The more dramatical situation is definitely Koln’s. The team has been in last place of the Bundesliga for a lot of rounds and they looked to be destined to be relegated.
But a reaction on the last couple of rounds has once again given them hopes of salvation to the club. Koln got out of last place and currently sits in 17th place with 20 points.
The task is still difficult, but the team needs to recover from a 5-points distance to the first team outside the relegation zone to dream about salvation. On the last 5 rounds, the team got great wins against Leipzig, away from home, and Leverkusen.

On the top half of the league table, Hoffenheim is dreaming about getting on the fight for the European spots.
It hasn’t been a season like the last one for Hoffenheim, when the team was able to qualify for the Champions League. But there’s still hope. They currently sit in 7th place with 39 points.
They are 4 points away from the Europa League’s spots and 6 points away from the Champions League’s spots. Their moment of form is good, and the team is coming off 4 unbeaten matches on the competition.
Hoffenheim vs Koln – Betting Tip and Prediction:
Playing at home, Hoffenheim has 7 wins, 4 draws and 2 losses, with 24 goals scored and 14 goals conceded. At home, Hoffenheim was only defeated by Leverkusen and by Monchengladbach.
The team has the 4th best attack at home of the competition and will face a team that has no margin for error. They need the win at any cost. I believe that need will allow the hosts to score at least 2 goals.
