Our prediction for this Bundesliga match:
Buoyed by a thrilling 4-1 win over Borussia Dortmund, Leipzig will look to give fans yet another reason for celebration when they host Hoffenheim to their Red Bull Arena on Matchday 29. The Red Bulls have been impressive in 2022, and, as a result, the bookies see them as favourites to win Sunday’s clash. Dani Olmo should keep his place in the starting XI, while both Amadou Haidara and Yussuf Poulsen miss out with injuries.
Hoffenheim, on the other hand, failed to impress in a 2-1 loss to Bochum, and given their three-game winless run, we believe that there is a big value in betting on the home team. All Kevin Akpoguma, David Raum, and Kevin Vogt are banned for the match, while the likes of Asllani, Skov, and Bicakcic should miss out through injuries. Stefan Posch is a major doubt following his recent positive test for coronavirus.
