Two teams looking to find some momentum in the German Bundesliga, clash at the PreZero Arena as Hoffenheim host Hertha Berlin in a Friday night fixture. Hoffenheim are banking on their solid home form and will be full of confidence against Hertha, who are poor on the road.

Hoffenheim are coming off a 4-0 defeat to champions Bayern Munich in their previous Bundesliga fixture. They bounced back in fine style in midweek, thrashing lower league side Holstein Kiel 5-1 in a DFB Pokal fixture.

Those two results highlight how erratic Hoffenheim have been this season as they sit just outside the top half in the Bundesliga standings. Sebastian Hoeneb's men have managed to find some stability at PreZero Arena, where they have won their last three matches across all competitions.

Goals have been easy to come by for Hoffenheim this season, particularly at home and triumphed 5-0 over Cologne in their previous fixture at PreZero. However, that was the only clean sheet in their last five matches across all competitions as they often struggle to find the balance in defence.

Hertha Berlin are also looking to shoot up the table as they currently sit 10th, just one point above Hoffenheim. They have fared slightly better than Hoffenheim with four wins from nine Bundesliga matches so far.

Pal Dardai’s men travel to Hoffenheim off the back of a 3-1 victory over Preussen Munster in the DFB Pokal. It was their third straight win in all competitions after claiming a 2-1 victory at Eintracht Frankfurt and a 1-0 triumph over Borussia Monchengladbach in their last two Bundesliga fixtures.

One area that needs improvement for Hertha Berlin is their form on the road. They have been on the receiving end of some heavy defeats on their travels this season. They suffered a 6-0 defeat to RB Leipzig and have also been beaten 5-0 by champions Bayern Munich.

How the bookies view it

Hoffenheim have the upper hand among the bookies at 10/13 with SBK. A victory for Hertha Berlin is priced at 4/1 with bet365 while SBK is offering 31/10 for a draw.

Head to head

Hoffenheim have an 11-6 advantage with five draws from 22 previous matches against Hertha Berlin. They did the double over their rivals last season, winning 3-1 in Berlin before returning to the PreZero Arena for a 2-1 victory with Andrej Kramaric scoring in both matches.

Players to watch

Andrej Kramaric often carries the attacking threat for Hoffenheim and could be worth keeping an eye on. The Croatian forward scored three times against Hertha Berlin last season and is priced at 13/10 by Skybet to find the net.

Hertha Berlin also have some quality in attack with Marco Richter and Krzysztof Piatek often leading the line. Bet365 has Richter at 4/1 to score anytime while also offering 9/4 on Piatek in the same market.

Anything else catch the eye?

There have been over 3.5 goals in four of Hoffenheim’s last five home matches and a repeat is priced at 8/5 with SBK. The hosts have also scored in both halves in their last three home matches and Friday’s clash could be tipped to follow a similar pattern at 7/5 with betfair.

Hoffenheim and Hertha Berlin often make fast starts and both teams could be tipped to score in the first half at 3/1 with BoyleSports.
