FC Köln vs Hoffenheim Prediction: Bundesliga Match on 06.03.2022
Betting TipHoffenheim to Win
Two sides that are battling for a European place in the Bundesliga this season clash on Sunday. FC Köln will be looking for a second win in three games, while Hoffenheim are searching for a fourth straight victory in the German top-flight.
Important European points are on the line this weekend, as FC Köln and Hoffenheim clash. The hosts will be looking for a vital victory, as they look to remain within striking distance of the sides in the Europa League places in the league standings.
They have been solid enough in the Bundesliga throughout this season, as only Bayern Munich have lost fewer games. Köln’s six defeats in 24 league fixtures this term is the second-fewest in the competition, but they have been slightly inconsistent when it comes to picking up victories.
Köln has won just once in their previous three fixtures, and have lost once and drew once during that run of fixtures. The draw that they picked up in those three fixtures came last weekend against Furth. They opened the scoring in that game through Florian Kainz, but Furth equalised with just over 20 minutes remaining in the contest.
Hoffenheim has an outstanding stance of finishing in the Champions League places this season, and their recent form is among the best in the Bundesliga. They have won their previous three fixtures in the German top-flight, which is something that only RB Leipzig can match.
That run of form means that Hoffenheim are level on points with Leipzig, who currently occupies the final Champions League spot at present. Hoffenheim picked up their third straight win in the league last weekend, as they scored twice in the final five minutes to comeback from 1-0 down to beat Stuttgart. Both goals in the win were scored by Christoph Baumgartner.
FC Köln vs Hoffenheim Head to Head
Hoffenheim’s record in this fixture is staggering, as they have picked up wins in each of the last seven meetings between the sides. They have also gone eleven without a defeat against Köln. Hoffenheim won 5-0 earlier in the season, and have scored eight unanswered goals in the previous two meetings.
