Match Preview

  • Hoffenheim welcome RB Leipzig on a run of four Bundesliga games unbeaten (W2, D2), scoring one first-half goal in all four (HT: W2, D2) and with both teams scoring in three. One of these wins marked just their second clean sheet this year (W4, D4, L5) with Hoffenheim seeing only two goalless first halves in 2020.
  • At home, the hosts have drawn only once in 15 league games (W6, L8) losing ‘to-nil’ in four of the eight home defeats, including the last two. Remarkably, in Hoffenheim’s four home league victories that saw both teams score this term, they conceded the opening goal in three.
  • RB Leipzig are without a defeat in 11 Bundesliga fixtures (W4, D7), though they conceded first in five of six (with both teams scoring) within that run. However, they kept a clean sheet on five occasions therein (W3, D2) and they won both halves in all four wins.
  • Impressively, the visitors have shut out the opposition in four of their last five away league games (W3, D2). Leipzig are also yet to concede more than two in any half of away football, having additionally conceded more than once in only three away halves.
  • Players to watch: Christoph Baumgartner scored once in both halves in Hoffenheim’s last home win. Hoffenheim have lost only once this season across his goalscoring Bundesliga games (W3, D1, L1).
  • With 21 of his 31 competitive goals for Leipzig this season coming away from home, Timo Werner has scored four goals in his last four games.
  • Stat attack: Hoffenheim have scored in both halves in their last three home league games to see them score more than one goal (W2, L1).
  • Away from home, Leipzig have lost only two second halves in the Bundesliga (2H: W9, D4, L2).
  • Leipzig have come back to win only two (33.33%) of six away league games where they have conceded first.
