Hoffenheim vs Manchester City Match Prediction

By Bharath Ramm R

Hoffenheim may be ruing the decision to continue with Julian Nagelsmann after an indifferent start to the Bundesliga campaign. However, the club did deserve something out of the weekend’s game against RB Leipzig – the future employers of Nagelsmann. Manchester City manager Pep Guardiola has a strong record against Hoffenheim after winning five out of the six games he has faced against this club, who travel to the Rhein Neckar Arena after having lost four consecutive European fixtures. City have only managed two wins from the last six trips to Germany. I would go with a draw.

A reason for Hoffenheim’s inability to make the most of quality players is a poor defensive record, which has seen them concede in each of the last five games. Such a defence will struggle big time against Manchester City, who have 14 goals in the last five games. I would back 3.5 goals in the game.

Draw – 9/2

Total goals over 3.5 – 1/1

Hoffenheim saw over 1.5 goals in 9 out of their last 10 games played

Hoffenheim have conceeded only 4 goals in their last 2 games against Manchester City

Manchester City scored over 2.5 goals in 7 out of their last 10 games played

Manchester City are undefeated in all of their last 2 games against Hoffenheim
