Our prediction for this Bundesliga match:
After surviving Freiburg in the last league match, Bayern Munich will be looking to retain top position when they host Hoffenheim to their Allianz Arena on Saturday. The Bavarians are eyeing their fifth consecutive win at home ground, and they are seen as hot favourites to beat Pellegrino Matarazzo’s troops on Matchday 28. Centre-back Dayot Upamecano is back from suspension, while all Paul Wanner, Eric Choupo-Moting, Gabriel Marusic, Manuel Neuer, and Lucas Hernandez remain on the sidelines with injuries.
The visitors, on the other hand, have been showing signs of improvement of late, with the team winning each of their last league fixtures. Hoffenheim, though, are not regarded as good travellers, and we do not believe that they are capable of spoiling Bayern Munich’s party at Allianz Stadium. As for the visiting team, Munas Dabbur is banned for the match, while all Kevin Vogt, Robert Skov, Justin Che, and Jacob Bruun Larsen remain in the recovery room.
