  • Hoffenheim have lost only one of their last six league fixtures.
  • Both teams have scored in 19 of Hoffenheim’s 32 matches in the Bundesliga this season.
  • Union Berlin’s away matches have featured an average of 3.19 goals per game.

Hoffenheim look the hungrier side

With the Bundesliga season drawing to a close, punters should factor in incentives when betting on the remaining two matches and for that reason Hoffenheim could be a good selection to see off Union Berlin.

The capital outfit have been on a super run of late, holding Schalke to a draw before successive wins over Cologne and Paderborn to secure survival in their maiden Bundesliga campaign.

Form is certainly on their side but now they are guaranteed safety, it is possible the foot could come off the pedal and any hints of complacency could be punished by the hosts.

Hoffenheim still have plenty to play for as they battle Wolfsburg and Freiburg for sixth spot and a place in the Europa League and they have the quality in their ranks to claim maximum points.

Hosts find alternative source of goals

They have won three of their last five matches in the league with their latest triumph a 3-1 win away to Augsburg, with Moanes Dabbur notching his first brace for the club and showing signs of the forward who dazzled during his tenure at Red Bull Salzburg.

Hoffenheim have been a top-heavy outfit this term, notching 45 goals in their 32 league encounters, and failing to score in only three of their 16 games on the road.

However, they have also kept only six clean sheets in the league this season and the disparity between their defence and attack is mirrored by the fact they have won 13 games but lost 12 this season.

Union Berlin do not travel well

Ordinarily their inconsistencies can be off putting for punters but given they have greater incentive to win this clash coupled with the fact only four of Union Berlin’s 11 wins have come on the road, a home win is the best match prediction.

But Union Berlin have failed to score in only four of their 16 games on the road and, with 12-goal Sebastian Andersson in their ranks, they should be fancied to net a consolation goal.

Hoffenheim have conceded in eight of their 13 league wins this term and punters should expect another high-scoring contest. 

In terms of a correct scoreline prediction, Hoffenheim have won 2-1 on four occasions this term and that could be the way to go at the PreZero Arena.
