Hoffenheim and FC Koln will be facing each other at the PreZero Arena on Sunday at 17:00 pm (UK Time), with both looking to build on their recent victories in the Bundesliga.
Hoffenheim’s three-game winless streak in the Bundesliga ended in midweek as they managed to grab an unexpected 3-0 home win on the road at Hertha Berlin. Prior to that match, Hoffenheim had failed to score in two consecutive league outings. This result helped them a little bit, but Hoffenheim are still 11th in the standings, already nine points behind the European places and just four points clear of the bottom three. Their recent home form has also been poor as Hoffenheim are winless in four competitive matches at the moment and have only netted three goals in the process.
FC Koln have also struggled for fluency of late as they were winless in three consecutive league games prior to their 1-2 away victory at Schalke 04. Similar to Hoffenheim, Koln had failed to score in three Bundesliga games in a row prior to their win at Schalke. Koln currently lie in 15th spot in the standings, just two points behind the safe zone. The good news is that Koln have suffered just one defeat in their last seven away games in the Bundesliga and are the ninth best away team in the division. The worst thing is that Koln have lost in each of their last five Bundesliga meetings with Hoffenheim and have conceded at least two goals in each of these.
Can Hoffenheim win their first Bundesliga home match in one month? Or will FC Koln extend their unbeaten streak in the league to three games?
