The match

Cologne visit the Rhein-Neckar-Arena on Friday night for a Bundesliga match against Hoffenheim. The travelling side are in early contention for a European place, currently sitting sixth, with 12 points from seven games. The hosts, Hoffenheim, are further down in 11th, with eight points from the same number of matches. Hoffenheim have failed to win five of their opening seven matches, with their home form being mixed. They have played three games in their stadium, winning, drawing and losing once. The most recent outing there was a 3-1 victory over high-flying Wolfsburg. While that victory was impressive, they went out and lost their next game by the same scoreline away to Stuttgart, showing their inconsistency. Bundesliga matches have had an average of 3.05 goals per game this season, with Hoffenheim's outing averaging 3.2. The most dangerous player in the Hoffenheim attack is Andrej Kramaric, who has one goal and five assists to his name. Cologne don't need a scout report on Kramaric as he scored five goals in the last two encounters between these clubs. 

Cologne have lost their last six meetings with Hoffenheim across all venues. Isolating their trips to Hoffenheim doesn't make for prettier reading, as they have lost their last four away fixtures. Those four games averaged 4.25 goals per game, with Hoffenheim doing the vast majority of the scoring. Cologne games have averaged 3.14 goals per game, which sets up this fixture to feature plenty of goalmouth action. Cologne enter this match in good form. They are unbeaten in their last five Bundesliga matches, winning twice. However, they are yet to win away from home, drawing two of their three games on the road. We suggest backing Hoffenheim.

Key Statistics

  • Hoffenheim have won their last four home matches against Cologne.
  • Cologne have failed to win their last three Bundesliga away games, drawing twice.
  • Hoffenheim have won their last six matches against Cologne.

The bet of our experts

Hoffenheim have a superb record against Cologne in recent seasons. They have had more joy at home in this campaign and welcome a visiting side that has looked travel sick on the road in recent weeks. Andrej Kramaric has a good record against Cologne and is a likely candidate to open the scoring. Back a home win.
