Our prediction for this Bundesliga match:
Hoffenheim and Bayer Leverkusen go head to head at PreZero Arena in what is expected to be one of the most interesting games of Saturday’s program. Hoffenheim have been struggling to find their best form in 2023, with the team collecting only one point in total from the last five league fixtures. The hosts are desperate to get back on course, and we are positive that they will adopt an attack-minded approach against Leverkusen.
Andrej Kramaric should be recalled to the starting XI after coming as a substitute in a 5-2 loss to Bochum, while all Pavel Kaderabek, Kevin Vogt, Robert Skov, Grischa Promel, and Jacob Bruun Larsen are out of contention with injuries. The visitors, on the other hand, aim to make amends for back-to-back defeats to Borussia Dortmund and Augsburg, and given their attacking potential, both teams to score betting option should be considered. Sardar Azmoun is a major doubt, while all Andrey Lunev, Charles Aranguiz, and Nadiem Amiri are sidelined with injuries, speaking of the away side.
