Dusseldorf vs Hoffenheim Prediction & Betting tips
After the international break, it continues on the weekend with the Bundesliga. On Saturday afternoon the TSG Hoffenheim must compete with the Fortuna from Dusseldorf. Both teams started the new season with light and shadow. While the team of Friedhelm Funkel on the last matchday with a point from Leipzig in the luggage took the journey home, the Kraichgauer could win the first home game against SC Freiburg. The task of the favored Hoffenheimer will be to crack the stable defense of the Rhinelander. We provide our readers with the facts about the game. Kick-off in the Merkur Spiel Arena is the best Bundesliga time on Saturday at 14:30.
Second home game for the team of coach Friedhelm Funkel. She receives the self-proclaimed championship favorites from Hoffenheim in the Merkur Spiel Arena. Certainly not a simple game for the Rhinelander, but that they can also compete against “the big ones”, they have shown on the last matchday. Surprisingly, they could capture a point in the favored Leipzigers. On the first matchday there was a disappointing 1: 2 defeat at home to FC Augsburg. At half-time, the promoted by a goal by Benito Raman was still in the lead 1-0, but he could not defend in the second section. With hits from Hinteregger and Hahn FCA could still turn the game. Thus, the Fortuna is on the twelfth place in the table, which of course has little significance in this early phase of the season.
The personal situation on the defensive should put Coach Funkel a few worry lines in the face. Left-back Diego Contento has suffered a cruciate ligament injury in a friendly against KFC Uerdingen and is out for about half a year.
The goal of coach Julian Nagelsmann before the season was clearly formulated. Better than last year (3rd place) and become a competitor of Bayern. Of course it is nice for the fans to hear that the championship will not be discounted by all before the season to the FCB. On the first day of play, the Kraichgauer then had to compete directly with the reigning champions and conceded a 1: 3 defeat. The players did not appear as brave in this game as their coach did in the run-up. A week later succeeded in the first home game but the compensation. The SC Freiburg was defeated 3-1. The match-winner was the Hungarian Adam Szalai, who almost scored a 1-0 break in the second half with three goals. In the game, three Hoffenheim center-back injured. Kasim Adams will be missing for about two weeks with a torn ligament. Kevin Akpogouma is reported to be wearing a face mask following his eye-opening fracture.
In the table, the team of coach Nagelsmann is in the tenth place in the table. After the claims before the season and the opening defeat against Bayern, it should of course now continue to go up. We may be curious if Szalai rediscovers his goalscoring qualities or if it was just a fluke on the last day. To survive at Fortuna, it will be important for Hoffenheim to block out the upcoming Champions League opening game at Shakhtar Donetsk, although the anticipation of international competition is likely to be great.
