Our football match prediction:
Hoffenheim made a flying start to the season and many people expected that the team would eventually suffer a dip in form. However, Julian Nagelsmann’s men keep on producing fine performances in Bundesliga and, as a result, they occupy fifth position in the standings ahead of Matchday 12. Hoffenheim are undefeated in previous 11 league fixtures and they are certainly brimming with confidence ahead of the trip to M’gladbach. Borussia, on the other hand, played out a 1-1 draw with Manchester City in Wednesday’s Champions League match, with the team booking their place in the Europa League last 32. Die Fohlen aim to return to winning ways in the German top flight and we predict that Saturday’s football match against Hoffenheim will be the turning point for Andre Schubert’s men. Former Hertha Berlin attacker Raffael scored against Manchester City and he is likely to prove a handful for the opposition back-line.
Highlighted Player (Kramer):
Christoph Kramer is a German midfielder born in Solingen on 19 February 1991, and he is most famous for helping Germany lift the 2014 World Cup trophy. The defensive midfielder came to prominence after signing for Bayer Leverkusen, but it was the loan spells with VFL Bochum and Borussia M’gladbach that seriously aided his development. Kramer received a surprise call up to Joachim Low’s World Cup squad, and he made a total of three appearances in Brazil, even starting the final against Argentina. The midfielder, however, suffered a concussion just after the half hour mark and he later confessed that he couldn’t remember anything from the most important game in his career. Kramer remained a member of the Germany national team, making three appearances in the Euro 2016 qualifiers, and there is plenty of time for him to represent the country at another major tournament, playing a more important role than the one he had at the 2014 World Cup.
