Last match of 28th round of the German Bundesliga tonight at 8.30 pm CET will be played by Hoffenheim and Bayer from Leverkusen. Both clubs cannot boast of good form and that is why they will do everything to win this match, thus announcing better days.

Hoffenheim will be eager to avoid a fourth league defeat (Stuttgart, Mainz, Augsburg) because they have dropped into the bottom half of the German top league (12th place). Also, Hoffenheim have managed to register just two wins in last nine matches in all competitions. The team led by coach Sebastian Hoeneß is now just four points above 16th place, which leads to qualifying to stay in the league, and he must do everything not to get into an even more difficult position.

The best recipe for that is to win today, but Hoeneß has several questionable players, and he is most worried about performance of top scorer Andrej Kramarić (14 goals), who had injury problems and will most likely wait for an opportunity from the bench. The good news is that another important striker, Munas Dabbur, who didn't play in the last round, is returning.

For home coach, the problem is also poor defense, which has been unstable lately and often receives naive goals, so today they will try with a tactical formation of 3-4-1-2. Hoffenheim again and again have difficulties when not in possession. Only three bottom clubs currently conceded more goals. A big factor in that respect - Hoffenheim have the lowest number of challenges of all the teams in the Bundesliga. That is definitely due in part to the long term absence of Hübner and Bičakčić as they are normally extremely reliable in tackles and challenges.

On home pitch this season, Hoffenheim have 17 points (W5 D2 L6) from a possible 39 on offer in 13 Bundesliga mathes. There has been a first half goal scored in each of Hoffenheim’s last 13 games in a row and 10 of Hoffenheim’s 13 home matches resulting in over 2,5 goals so far this season.

Bayer Leverkusen are pushing for a place in next season’s Europa League and now occupy last European spot (6th place) but Union Berlin, Stuttgart and Borussia Monchengladbach has only three and four points less. Bayer have won just one of their last five Bundesliga away games and just two wins of their last seven matches overall.

Guest coach Hannes Wolf believes that this match is ideal for a return to success, and as apart from some longer absent players, there are no new worries about injuries and suspensions, Bayer should play in the currently strongest formation in a 3-5-2 tactical schedule with the best scorer Alario as the main striker (10 goals so far).

Both clubs from this match want the maximum - victory, and both coaches announce a very offensive approach. If that happens, there should be goals, and tradition suggests that.

Six of last seven matches between Hoffenheim and Bayer Leverkusen ended with over 2,5 goals scored (1:4, 2:1, 4:1, 4:1, 1:4, 2:2) and that is why tonight we see the continuation of the trend of efficient match between these two clubs.
