Freiburg vs Hoffenheim: Match preview
The host is the most relieved team in the Bundesliga. Freiburg acquired point stock this fall, so now it has no pressure on results. Hoffenheim in previous three rounds in the Bundesliga has lost to Eintracht on their own ground but then tied for two wins, in Mainz and against Leverkusen at home. Hoffenheim is in seventh place, not far away even from fourth place in the Champions League standings, but they must continue to win.
Freiburg team news:
Freiburg started the second part of the season with a valuable away win against Mainz, but after that Streich’s team registered convincing defeats against the strangers Paderborn and Koln. It is worrying that on both occasions the Freiburg team failed to shake the rival’s net.
The fact is that Freiburg regularly makes a better impression when playing against better rivals, so it may be good for Streich to break the negative streak against Hoffenheim, who strives for a rally. In addition, visiting issues with deficiencies in the defensive line could help the Freiburg offensive line break their goal post.
Probable lineup: Nubel, McKennie, Kabak, Nastasić, Oczipka, Schopf, Mascarell, Serdar, Harit, Gregoritsch, Raman.
Hoffenheim team news:
With valuable victories over Werder and Bayer, the Hoffenheim team has reached the positions that brings them placement to the European scene. The good form in the Championship was not confirm in the DFB Cup against Bayern.
They played good against favored Bayern Munich, but dropped out of the competition even though they shook Neuer’s net three times on Wednesday. First goalkeeper Baumann is still injured, which is Schreuder’s biggest problem in recent weeks. Given the uncertainty of the defense, Hoffenheim is looking for success with a good striker play.
Schreuder’s optimism may be due to the fact that Freiburg is his favorite rival for his top striker, Kramaric, who has shaken their net six times in six matches so far.
Probable lineup: Pentke, Posch, Akpoguma, Hubner, Kaderabek, Rudy, Grillitsch, Baumgartner, Skov, Kramarić, Dabbur.
We presume that this will be a match with a lot of goals. Freiburg has achieved their main goal this season, and because of that a lot of goal is something we can expect in their matches. The same goes for Hoffenheim, who needs points.
