Our prediction for this Bundesliga match:
Hoffenheim will be looking to make amends for a heavy 4-0 loss to rock-bottom Schalke when they take on Arminia Bielefeld on Matchday 16. Hoffenheim have been struggling at the back at the start of the year, but the game against Arminia Bielefeld could be the turning point for Andrej Kramaric and Co. Even though several first-team regulars remain in the recovery room, home win should be considered.
Arminia, on the other hand, picked up vital three points in the relegation battle at the weekend, with the team beating Hertha Berlin thanks to Reinhold Yabo’s goal. The newcomers regained a much-needed confidence, but given their poor away record in the German top flight, we do not believe that they are capable of spoiling Hoffenheim’s party at PreZero Arena. This will be the first meeting between the two clubs since May 2009 when Hoffenheim defeated Arminia Bielefeld 2-0.
Highlighted Player (Pavel Kaderabek):
Pavel Kaderabek is a Czech Republic defender born on 25 April 1992, who has enjoyed a bright start to his professional career. Coming through the youth ranks at Sparta Prague and gaining some first team experience during a loan spell with Viktoria Zizkov, the right-sided defender was finally able to show what he is capable of during the 2012/2013 season and he didn’t need a lot of time to make the next step in his career.
After scoring impressive 10 goals in 76 league appearances for Sparta Prague, Kaderabek joined Bundesliga side Hoffenheim in the summer of 2015, shortly after he had established himself as a starting right-back in the Czech Republic national team.
The talented footballer helped Repre make it to the Euro 2016 finals by starting 9 qualifying matches, once again proving his killer instinct by scoring two goals. Pavel Kaderabek looks set to become one of leading players of the new generation and a big club move may not be far away either.
