Bayern Munich vs. Hoffenheim Predictions

Where: Allianz Arena, Munich, GermanyWhen: Friday, January 12, 8:30 pm CET

The Bavarians were just getting their rhythm back when the winter break came along. We’ll see whether that hurt their form. Hoffenheim recorded mixed results and wasn’t confident in the games preceding the pause. They are near the zone that leads to the international stage, which will be a great motive for this unit to keep pushing even harder.

Bayern Munich vs. Hoffenheim Preview

Bayern Munich

The champs are second in the Bundesliga standings, having four points fewer than Leverkusen, but with a game in hand. They have the best attack in Germany with 49 goals in 15 appearances, and one of the best defenses, which conceded only 15 hits.

Before the pause, Bayern was successfully recovering from a 5-1 defeat against Eintracht in Frankfurt, as they defeated Manchester United on the road, 0-1, then Stuttgart at home, 3-0, before triumphing in Wolfsburg too, 1-2.

Bayern is near perfect at home this season, winning six of its seven Bundesliga appearances and having one tie, netting 30 goals and allowing five. That would be more than four goals scored per meeting. Though 15 of them came against Darmstadt and Bochum.

Hoffenheim

Die Kraichgauers are seventh, having the same number of points as the sixth-placed Eintracht and three fewer than the fifth Borussia Dortmund. The competition for the European competitions will be pretty harsh, and each point will be extremely important.

Hoffenheim was much better early on in the season, with them sinking since the start of November, and recording only one Bundesliga win in seven events. Overall, they would win only six of a possible 21 points during this stretch.

Yet the efficiency of their events stayed high, and all of the meetings mentioned above saw both teams netting, while five concluded with at least three hits on both sides of the field. Furthermore, the most recent three concluded with over 3.5 goals.

Bayern Munich vs. Hoffenheim Head to Head Games

Bayern Munich vs. Hoffenheim Predictions

The Bavarians have to win here, and after a pause, the champs are determined to start pounding hard. Hoffenheim isn’t a team that likes to defend, no matter the rival, so we are sure that Friday’s games will provide plenty of action and, therefore, goals as well. Instead of going with over 2.5, we will take some risk here and pick over 3.5 hits, with the odds looking far better.

Our verdict: Over 3.5 goals
