Date: on the 23rd of December, 2018 (Sunday)
Match start: 18:00 (GMT+1)
Tournament: DFB-Pokal. Bundesliga.
It will be possible to enjoy the fights in the German Bundesliga for the last time this year on Sunday evening – the final match of the first half of this season will be held on Wirsol Rhein-Neckar-Arena in Sinsheim.
Hoffenheim that is the hosts in this match takes rather high 7th line and only 4 points separate the club from the Champions League zone but the team is not pleased with this situation.
Mainz feels itself comfortable in the middle part of the table, the team is not going to leave the tournament and also it won’t be able to claim for the Eurocups either and that is why if the club from Mainz will gain even 1 point it will be extremely pleased.
We are almost sure that the guests will choose the defensive model of the game and will try to compete with the 6th by its strength of attack team of this championship.
“Die Kraichgauer” are really angry as instead of fighting for the Champions League using their strong qualities they are still playing near the zone of the Europa League.
In each 5 last matches that were spent in frames of the German championship Hoffenheim has ended the matches in neutral outcomes.
Yes, the rivals were strong by if to judge by potential the team of Julian Nagelsmann is stronger than Werder, Hertha and current Schalke.
The White and Blues have experienced serious problems in two last matches. They haven’t managed to score to Borussia M any goal and have scored only 1 goal to Bremen (away match).
May be now Hoffenheim will break unpleasant series of neutral outcomes but it won’t be able to win with a great result because Mainz in general is good in defense and the hosts seem to have problems in attack.
Our tip: Hoffenheim individual total under (2.5) – odds 1.7.
