Hoffenheim vs RB Leipzig

, KO: 19:30 May 3, 2024, PreZero Arena
RB Leipzig

RB Leipzig are still in the mix for a top four finish as they travel to Hoffenheim for a Friday night Bundesliga fixture. Leipzig have looked imperious in recent weeks and given their record in this fixture should have the upper hand over their hosts once again.

Sitting ninth on the Bundesliga standings, Hoffenheim still have a mathematical chance of securing a European finish this season. Pellegrino Matarazzo’s men are currently six points off the top six and with three matches left to play, will be looking to make a final push.

While Hoffenheim are hoping to capitalise on their mathematical chance, their recent form does not inspire much confidence. They have lost five of their last seven Bundesliga matches and were beaten 3-2 at Bochum last time out with Andrej Kramaric netting another brace after going three goals down.

Hoffenheim will head into Friday’s clash banking on their recent home record having won three of their last four matches at PreZero Arena. However, their record against the current top four is quite poor having been beaten at home by Bayer Leverkusen, Borussia Dortmund and Stuttgart this season.

In contrast to Hoffenheim’s struggles, RB Leipzig appear to be ending the season on a high having lost just once in their last 12 Bundesliga matches. Marco Rose’s men have picked up nine wins in that run and are well on course to secure a top four finish.

RB Leipzig were in rampant mood last time out as claimed a 4-1 victory over Borussia Dortmund. They fought back from a goal down with efforts from Lois Openda, Benjamin Sesko, Mohamed Simikan and Christoph Baumgartner earning them the win.

Things have also been smooth for RB Leipzig on their recent travels having won their last four away matches. Some of their heaviest wins have come on the road with a 5-1 victory at Cologne and a 4-1 triumph at Freiburg among the recent results away from home.

How the bookies view it

RB Leipzig have been installed as overwhelming favourites among the bookies and are priced at 9/20 by bet365 to claim the win. Hoffenheim are considered outsiders with a home win valued at 5/1 by Coral while a draw is set at odds of 4/1 by Unibet.

Head to head

Players to watch

Andrej Kramaric has caught the eye for Hoffenheim this season, scoring 11 Bundesliga goals and will be the one to watch on Friday. The forward is coming off a brace last time out and is priced at 47/20 by Unibet to get on the score sheet.

Lois Openda has 24 Bundesliga goals this season and is priced at 3/4 with Unibet to score anytime. Benjamin Sesko has found the net in the last four matches and could be worth keeping an eye on in the same market at 13/10 with Unibet.

Anything else catch the eye?

RB Leipzig saw over 4.5 goals in their previous fixture and a repeat is priced at 33/20 by Unibet. There have also been over 3.5 goals in three of the last four meetings between both teams and a similar outcome is priced at 8/11 with BoyleSports.

Given the minimal odds for a straight RB Leipzig victory, a win and both teams to score could be considered at 13/10 by bet365.
