Hoffenheim vs Borussia M’gladbach:
During previous seasons, this was a derby, but now the situation has changed a bit. Both teams are playing below expectations, especially Hoffenheim. They have only one victory and only five points, while Borussia have won twice more and are much better placed.
Borussia has therefore failed in the European League, which Hoffenheim does not play, and last season, both duels of these rivals were ended in a draw.
Hoffenheim team news:
Hoffenheim is winning quite hard at the start of the new season and they have only celebrated once. And in that match with Werder on the home field, they were very lucky to get to 3: 2 with the player more in the field.
The worst game is a home defeat to Freiburg by as much as 3-0, while they managed to draw in two difficult away games. At Leverkusen it was 0-0, which is quite unusual for both teams. Last round a solid away game at Wolfsburg and a draw 1: 1. Two changes after the defeat of Freiburg significantly improved the game. Entry of Hubner and Skov brought the result, so now we do not expect any changes.
Probable starting lineup for Hoffenheim: Baumann – Posch, Vogt, B.Hubner, Skov – Grillitsch – Rudy, Geiger – Kaderabek, Bebou – Belfodil
Borussia M’Gladbach team news:
Borussia has won both away games and home matches have been a problem for this team. They scored just one point in the first two, then to experience a real debacle in the Europa League with a 4-0 defeat by Wolfsberger.
The defeat against the current leader was therefore even logical, while wins in Mainz and Cologne put them at the top of the table. They welcomed Fortuna in the last round and the pressure was high as they were expected to finally celebrate in front of their fans.
They received the goal very early and then broke the opponent’s resistance for a long time, but in the end they succeeded on the wings of this year’s reinforcement Thuram, who scored two goals after entering the bench. He will now certainly be a starter, together with Elvedi.
Probable starting lineup for Borussia M’gladbach: Sommer – Lainer, Elvedi, Ginter, Wendt – Benes, Zakaria, Neuhaus – Embolo, Plea, Thuram
Hoffenheim is not playing so bad, and it could be a bit of a comeback now. Borussia has been excellent on away games, but after the first home triumph they could lose out of their field.
