Hoffenheim 31/20 to beat Koln in Friday’s Bundesliga battle

Competition: Bundesliga

Market: Hoffenheim win

Odds: 31/20 @ Bet 365

Handed the chance to climb as high as third in the Bundesliga standings, Hoffenheim will make the trip to relegation scrappers Koln on Friday night.

Starting with the hosts, despite picking up a 3-0 win over Paperborn last month, a result that improved the mood around the RheinEnergieStadion, Koln have since come crashing back down to earth. Putting in another worrying display in their 2-0 defeat away at Fortuna Dusseldorf last weekend, they have lost their last three matches on the spin and also came crashing out of the DFB Pokal at the hands of lower-league Saarbrücken last week. Recording just a single Bundesliga victory since the end of August and still sat two points adrift of safety, Achim Beierlorzer’s men could be in for another long night’s work on Friday.

As for the visitors, putting in another very eye-catching display and landing a 3-0 victory away at Paperborn last weekend, the mood in Hoffenheim’s camp is starting to soar. Handed the chance to climb as high as third in the standings, Alfred Schreuder’s men have won their last five matches on the spin, including a famous 2-1 win away at defending champions Bayern Munich last month. Quickly gaining a reputation for their clinical displays in the final third, Hoffenheim have bagged 12 goals on their winning run and they will undoubtedly travel to Koln believing they have a golden opportunity to extend on their recent purple patch.
