Hoffenheim -1 @ 13/10 with Betfair
Outsiders for the Champions League places, Hoffenheim manager Julian Nagelsmann must know that five wins from their last five games would almost guarantee a place in the competition. Sure, they’re five points behind but the inconsistency of the European chasers has been what’s kept that Bundesliga race so riveting. This weekend, they’re tasked with getting one over on Hamburg, who have aims and ambitions of their own, namely staying in the division. Grab these free bets from Betfair!

The dinosaur of the top flight, Hamburg are the only German club to have never been relegated from the top tier. The last few years have been close calls. Hamburg routinely play terribly for the majority of the season before getting their act together just in time to save their hides. Seven points from safety, their task is extremely hard but the win over Schalke last weekend was encouraging. They’re five points from a relegation play-off and would fancy their chances there.

Hamburg have had the better of recent meetings with Hoffenheim but the Hoffe have been brilliant at home in recent weeks which makes us think they’re going to win this one.
