BETTING & MATCH PREDICTION
On Sunday evening, RB Leipzig hosts Hoffenheim at the Red Bull Arena, in a game that could prove to be pivotal in the fight for the Champions League spots in the Bundesliga.
Die Roten Bullen have hit form of late in the Bundesliga, as Domenico Tedesco’s team is unbeaten in seven matches in the German top-flight, having recorded five wins and two draws. Last time out in the Bundesliga, Leipzig recorded a highly impressive 4-1 win at second-placed Dortmund. The win kept the home side three points clear of fifth-place Freiburg in the race for the Champions League spots.
RB Leipzig are unbeaten in their last five home matches in the Bundesliga, although they have drawn their last two matches in the league on home soil.
The visitors have failed to win in their last three matches in the German top-flight, having suffered back-to-back defeats against Hertha Berlin and Bochum. The latest poor league form has seen Hoffenheim fall four points behind their fourth-place opponents in the top-four race.
Their recent league matches have largely been high-scoring, with over 2.5 goals scored in eight of their last 12 matches in the Spanish top-flight.
Hoffenheim’s recent away form in the Bundesliga has been highly inconsistent, as they have recorded just two wins in their last six league games on their travels. Their recent poor away form has largely been down to poor defensive displays, as Hoffenheim have conceded at least two goals in eight of their last 11 away games in the league in the Bundesliga.

RB Leipzig vs Hoffenheim Match Prediction
