Match Preview

Hoffenheim welcome Bayer Leverkusen in a Bundesliga home fixture that the hosts have won just once (W1, D2, L7). In fact Hoffenheim have lost more top-flight home games against Leverkusen than any other side in their history.
A 1-1 result at Stuttgart last time out was Hoffenheim’s 11th draw this Bundesliga season (W9, D11, L6). Notably, that game continued an impressive streak that has seen Hoffenheim score in 11 consecutive top-flight games, although they registered just one clean sheet in the process.
In fact the ninth-placed hosts have collected just three league clean sheets this term – all came at home though, where Hoffenheim can boast the division’s third-best defence.
In contrast, sixth-placed Leverkusen haven’t seen a draw in 13 league matches (W9, L4), registering four clean sheets during that period and failing to score just once. Yet it’s worth noting that all ten of their Bundesliga defeats this season (W13, D3, L10) have come against teams currently in the table’s top half.
However whilst their all-time Bundesliga H2H record is brilliant (W14, D3, L4), Leverkusen did lose 4-1 in the reverse fixture. The last two H2Hs have now finished 4-1 to the away side on the day.
Players to watch: Hoffenheim’s Andrej Kramarić (13 goals) has scored the match opener six times this Bundesliga season.
Kevin Volland has netted four of the league-high 13 away goals Leverkusen have scored this calendar year. Eight of his total 11 Bundesliga goals have come on the road.
Stat attack: Hoffenheim have scored a first-half opener in six of their last eight Bundesliga games.
Hoffenheim are yet to concede in the first 15 minutes of any home league fixture.
Leverkusen have won the first half in five of their last seven top-flight away matches (HT: W5, L2).
Leverkusen’s last six Bundesliga away games featured over 2.5 goals; both teams scored in five.
