1899 Hoffenheim is hosting FC union Berlin at PreZero Arena in a round 33 of German Bundesliga.
Hoffenheim has lost only 1 of their last 6 games, and thanks to that, Hoffenheim is now in a spot that leads to the Europa League playoffs, but they have the same amount of point as Wolfsburg in 6th place. With 46 points, Hoffenheim is in 7th place in the standings, but the downside is that Freiburg is only 1 point away from Hoffenheim, which means that they can’t afford to lose this match. Offensively, Hoffenheim is solid with 45 scored goals, but their defense has been bad this season with 53 conceded goals. Hoffenheim has scored at least one goal in 4 of their last 5 games, while they were able to keep only 1 clean sheet. Andrej Kramaric is the top goal scorer for Hoffenheim with 7 goals, while Baumgartner added 6 goals. Robert Skov has 6 assists. Beldofil and Adamyan are still injured and will not be playing again this season. In their latest Bundesliga match against Augsburg on the road, Hoffenheim was brilliant with 57% of ball possession, 5 shots on goal, 4 corner kicks, and solid 82% of accurate passes. One of the best games Hoffenheim has played this season and they have deservedly won 1-3. Hoffenheim can still get everything they hoped for this season, but they can also lose everything, and a lot will depend on the outcome of this match.
With only 6 points left to be won, Union Berlin is now officially safe and will spend another season in Bundesliga. With 38 points, Union Berlin is now in 12th place and it won’t mean much if they go a few spots up or down until the end of the season. Union has had a solid season in the attacking end with 38 scored goals, while their defense hasn’t been the best, but it’s not the worst with 54 conceded goals. In their most recent match against Paderborn, Union has had 41% of ball possession, 6 shots on goal, 1 corner kick, and 75% of the correct passes. Union Berlin has won this match 1-0, but it was a lucky win because Paderborn has scored an own goal. Sebastian Andersson has scored 12 goals for Union this season, while Bulter added 7 goals. Gogia, Becker, and Ryerson are injured and will miss the rest of the season. The season is basically over for Union Berlin, but their goal was accomplished, and that was to stay in Bundesliga for another year.
Hoffenheim has beaten Union Berlin on the road in the reverse fixture this season, and they are the better team here. Hoffenheim can’t afford to lose this match, and I think they won’t. I see Hoffenheim getting a nice home win to fortify their Europa League spot.
