Hoffenheim vs Hertha BSC  Prediction & Betting Tip

Hoffenheim vs Hertha BSC predictions for Sunday’s afternoon kick off in the Bundesliga.

Hoffenheim vs Hertha BSC
When: 30th October, 14:30
Where: WIRSOL Rhein-Neckar-Arena
Prediction: Over 2.5 Goals and Both Teams to Score at 21/20 with bet365
Correct Score Prediction: Hoffenheim to Win 2-1 at 8/1 with bet365

Hoffenheim’s “great escape” from relegation last season can only be accredited to one man, coach Julian Nagelsmann. Nagelsmann, who is the youngest ever Bundesliga coach at 28 years old, has pushed Hoffenheim forward with an attacking and entertaining brand of football which has been implemented perfectly over their opening eight matches. Hoffenheim remain as one of three teams unbeaten so far (W4 D4) in the 2016/2017 Bundesliga season, alongside Bayern Munich and RB Leipzig. Hoffenheim should also fancy their chances coming into this match; last Saturday’s 3-0 win away to Bayer Leverkusen extended their streak to four consecutive Bundesliga wins and striker Sandro Wagner found the back of the net for a third consecutive match. He’d be our choice for an anytime goalscorer bet at 2/1 with bet365.

Hertha are starting to show that last season was not a fluke. The Berliner’s bittersweet end to the 2015/2016 Bundesliga campaign, where their eventual 7th placed finish overshadowed their prior twenty-week-long stint within the top four, has evidently not knocked their confidence over the opening of the new season. Hertha have lost just one of their opening eight matches (W5 D2 L1), an “acceptable” 3-0 defeat away to Bayern Munich, and come into this off the back of an impressive 2-1 win at home to the inform Cologne – Cologne were unbeaten up to that point. Striker Vedad Ibisevic, who has scored six goals in eight Bundesliga appearances, should continue to hold his role up front ahead of last season’s favourite Salomon Kalou. His goal last weekend made him 3rd top scorer in the Bundesliga and he’s also a very reasonable 2/1 to score anytime with bet365.

Both sides are in top form, although the home advantage means Hoffenheim come into this as the bookies’ favourites at 5/4. While we also fancy the host’s chances here, we feel goals are the safer bet for the following reasons: Hoffenheim may be unbeaten at home this season (W2 D2), but these wins came from fixtures against the (then) out-of-form Schalke and the travel-sick Freiburg. Hertha Berlin could be more of a challenge, considering the Berliners have lost just one of their four matches on the road (W1 D2 L1) this season across a difficult set of fixtures.

Hoffenheim’s style of football has, however, consistently seen matches end high-scoring regardless of their opponents. Over 2.5 goals and both teams to score has landed in 6 of their last 7 home matches and Hoffenheim have won 2-1 in three of their last four Bundesliga matches. Notably, this correlates their two most recent Bundesliga home meetings against Hertha Berlin (Hoffenheim won both 2-1) and Hertha Berlin’s current average of 2.33 conceded over their last three away matches. As such, we feel that Hoffenheim to win 2-1 at 8/1 with bet365 also seems a decent shout here.

HEAD TO HEAD
Hoffenheim won 2-1 against Hertha when the two sides last met in April earlier this year. Over all 12 meetings between them, Hoffenheim have won 5, drawn 2 and lost 5 against Hertha Berlin.

STATS
Hoffenheim have won 2-1 in both their two most recent Bundesliga home matches and in their two most recent meetings at home to Hertha. Over 2.5 goals and both teams to score has landed in 6 of Hoffenheim’s last 7 home matches. Hertha Berlin have won just one of their last 9 on the road (W1 D3 L5).

TEAM NEWS
Hoffenheim are without second top scoring centre forward Mark Uth (3 goals in 5 appearances), who is out until December with a muscular injury. Defensive midfielder Pirmin Schwegler also remains doubtful ahead of this match. Notable signings from the transfer window include: star striker Sandro Wagner from Darmstadt 98, centre forward Andrej Kramaric from Leicester City, central midfielder Lukas Rupp from Stuttgart, and centre back Benjamin Hubner from opponents Ingolstadt.

Hertha Berlin have a few notable injuries to report: central midfielder Vladimir Darida, who was substituted off against Schalke last month with a torn ankle ligament, is out until December. Newly signed midfielder Ondrej Duda is out until the end of October but defensive Fabian Lustenberger could make his return. Attacking midfielder Valentin Stocker (2 goals in 5 appearances), is unavailable for his straight red against Dortmund.
