Hoffenheim vs Bayern Munich

Hoffenheim find themselves on a horrendous run in the Bundesliga which has seen them go six games without a win and Bayern Munich stand in their way this Friday looking to extend their misery. Bayern hadn’t made the finest start to their season, but they finally seem to be performing at their best with them losing just one of their last 15 games across all competitions. After finishing in third place last year, Julian Nagelsmann will be hoping for an improvement in his side’s performances as they currently sit down in seventh place after 17 games.

Hoffenheim look only a glimpse of the side they were last season which saw them finish up in third place, as 17 games in they sit down in seventh eight points off of Monchengladbach in third. Despite their poor form, the hosts have been a tough side to beat this season with them picking up just four losses but their sheer amount of draws(7) has held them back this season. The hosts have drawn their last six league fixtures and if you want to back them to draw their seventh then SkyBet is offering odds of 10/3, but if you fancy them to take the three points Bet365 have them priced at 19/4 to do so.

With 32 goals scored this season, Hoffenheim have not been slacking in front of goal but their quality in the final third has not been their strong point over their last five fixtures. Four of their last five fixtures have seen them score one or fewer goals and Bet365 are offering odds of 6/4 for them to score one goal. Another market worth backing is both teams to score as four of their last five fixtures have seen them score and concede. SkyBet has BTTS at 4/9.

After a slow start to the Bundesliga, Bayern Munich have clawed their up into second place after 17 games but they remain six points off the pace of Borussia Dortmund – leaving them with plenty of catching up to do. Munich head into this fixture off the back of a comfortable 3-0 win over Eintracht Frankfurt which marked their eighth-game they have gone unbeaten. These two sides faced each other on the opening day of the season and Bayern eased to a 3-1 victory. You can back Bayern to secure their fourth consecutive win this Friday with Betway for a price of 4/7.

Bayern Munich always prevail in the goals scored category and after 17 games they have racked up 36 goals, but once again find themselves second best to Borussia Dortmund who sit with 44. Robert Lewandowski has been crucial to his side’s success this season, with the forward racking up 18 goals across all competitions and ten of those have come in league fixtures. You can back the Polish striker to score anytime on Friday with Bet365 for a price of 4/7. Over the course of Bayern’s last five games, they have kept four clean sheets and can be backed with SkyBet to keep another for a price of 19/10.
