1. FC Koln vs. TSG Hoffenheim Betting Tips
Hoffenheim travel to Koln for their Matchday 30 clash on Friday hoping to build on their amazing streak and finally reach some consistency on the road. They’ve beaten Borussia Monchengladbach (5-3) on Saturday and made it four wins in their last five outings, reaching the top 3 once again, but they’ve been far from impressive away from home and we don’t feel they’ll be able to snatch all three points at RheinEnergieStadion either.
Koln have, by contrast, been in a slump and suffered three losses in last four outings and dropped out of the Bundesliga top 6. Their home form has also been dented as we’ve seen Borussia Monchengladbach snatch all three points (2-3) in their last game there, but this has been only their second loss there in 14 games there.
