Team News: Hoffenheim
Hoffenheim boss Sebastian Hoeneß has to choose a team with limited availability. Ermin Bicakcic (Cruciate Ligament Rupture), Konstantinos Stafylidis (Shoulder Injury), Benjamin Hübner (Tear in a joint capsule), Kasim Adams (Corona virus), Andrej Kramaric (Corona virus) and Pavel Kaderabek (Quarantine) won’t be making appearances.
In our view, Werder Bremen will likely be able to score against this Hoffenheim outfit, but one goal probably shouldn’t be good enough.
We therefore reckon that it will be a close game with a 1-2 winning margin for Hoffenheim at the end of the 90 minutes. It’s a very tough call.
