Market: Alexander Sorloth to score anytime
Odds: 21/20 @ 888sport
Looking to make it back-to-back Bundesliga wins when this weekend’s fixtures open up, RB Leipzig will welcome Hoffenheim to The Red Bull Arena on Friday night.
Starting with the hosts, while RB Leipzig might have shown some worrying issues on either side of the international break, The Whites certainly made a thumping return to winning ways last time out. Once again cutting Bayern Munich’s buffer at the top of the Bundesliga table to five points, Julian Nagelsmann’s men were last seen picking up a thumping 4-1 win against Werder Bremen on their travels. If Leipzig are to pick up back-to-back victories on Friday night, they could be calling on a red-hot Alexander Sorloth to spearhead their charge. Gaining a string of admirers from across Germany, the former Crystal Palace misfit was last seen bagging a brace against Bremen. Also enjoying a free-scoring run while away with Norway on international duties, Sorloth has four goals in his last five matchups across all formats and will be confident of extending on that tally this week.
As for the visitors, after watching their Europa League adventure come to an abrupt end thanks to a 5-3 aggregate defeat against Molde back in February, Hoffenheim are in the midst of an extended blip. Just about managing to snatch a point off of an inconsistent Bayer Leverkusen earlier in the week, Sebastian Hoeneb’s side have come tumbling out the top-half of the Bundesliga table. Unable to build off of last month’s 2-1 victory against Wolfsburg, The Blues have mustered just a single point from their last four top-flight matchups. Suffering defeats against the likes of Stuttgart, Mainz and Augsburg on their recent blip, it should also be noted that Hoffenheim have continued to show their struggles on the road. Without a win away from The Rhein-Neckar-Arena since the middle of January, Hoeneb’s men face another stern test this week.
