Hoffenheim can’t be trusted to beat Koln who have impressed this season. 

Hoffenheim have won two of their opening seven matches in the Bundesliga. They have been unlucky not to pick up more points.

Sebastian Hoeness’ side failed to win in four games before a 3-1 home win against Wolfsburg.

Hoffenheim’s last match was a 3-1 loss in Stuttgart despite having 0.98-0.77 expected goals and 59% possession.

Defenders Ermin Bicakcic, Marco John and Benjamin Hübner are injured with Havard Nordtveit unfit.

Centre back Chris Richards is in a race against time to play after featuring for the USA in the World Cup qualifiers.

Koln have had a great start under new manager Steffen Baumgart. They have lost only once, 3-2 at Bayern Munich.

Baumgart’s side drew 1-1 in three straight games before a 3-1 win against Greuther Furth. 

The Billy Goats fell behind in the 7th minute but hit back with Sebastian Andersson equalising and Ellyes Skhiri bagging a brace.

Tim Lemperle, Jannes Horn and Ellyes Skhiri are injured. Skhiri is a big loss in midfield.

Dejan Ljubicic is doubtful with the flu.

Jonas Hector and Timo Hübers are close to returning from injury.

Verdict

Koln have been big improvers this season and Hoffenheim have been unlucky on occasions. Both teams can score in the Bundesliga.
