FC Koln vs. Hoffenheim – Prediction (Bundesliga – 08.11.2019)

Preview and Teams Comparison.

Cologne welcome Hoffenheim after hitting a rocky patch which has seen them lose consecutive Bundesliga games by a two-goal margin. To compound matters further, they possess the division’s worst attack after netting an average of just 0.9 goals per game. Two of Simon Terodde’s (COL) three Bundesliga goals were match openers scored before the 15th minute. The hosts have scored a first-half opener by the 15th minute in the last two league games that they have found the net, but went on to lose one (W1). However, considering three of Cologne’s four home league fixtures have seen just one team score (W1, L3), netting the opener could decide this match.

Stat attack: Cologne have conceded six of their eight home league goals in the second half – three came in the final 15 minutes. Five of the ten yellow cards that have been awarded in Hoffenheim’s away league fixtures this season arrived on the 90th minute or later. Three of Cologne’s four Bundesliga home games have produced over 2.5 goals. All four of Cologne’s Bundesliga home games have seen a 1-0 scoreline at the break (HT: W2, L2).

In-form Hoffenheim have racked up four consecutive Bundesliga victories, registering a clean sheet in two of those wins. Scoring first has been the key to their recent success, with Hoffenheim netting the opener in the last five games that they’ve collected points (W4, D1). Meanwhile, Pavel Kadeřábek netted his second Bundesliga goal this season last time out – Hoffenheim have never lost in the league when he’s scored (W5, D2). Two of the visitors’ recent wins came on the road, with each seeing both teams score and the game decided by a single-goal margin. In both victories Hoffenheim conceded an equaliser, before scoring the winner on precisely the 79th minute.
