Hoffenheim vs Wolfsburg
German Bundesliga
Date: Saturday, 17 September 2016,
Kick-Off: 14:30 UK
Venue: Rhein-Neckar Arena, Sinsheim, Baden-Wurttemberg.

Hoffenheim have scored 6 goals in their first two matches of the season. It is interesting to know that only Bayern Munich have scored more than them at this point. They have also conceded 6 goals and drawn their two games this season, the latest a thrilling 4-4 draw against Mainz. And they will be looking for their first win when they lock horns with Wolfsburg on Saturday evening.

Wolfsburg started their season with a 2-0 away win against Augsburg. They were then held to a goal less draw by FC Koln on the matchday two. Dieter Hecking will be pleased to have remained unbeaten at the start of the new season after a disappointing 2015/16 season. It is still early days of the season and now he will want some more consistency from his players.

Hoffenheim vs Wolfsburg: Prediction

The poor defending is the main worry for Julian Nagelsmann as his team prepares to welcome Wofsburg into the Rhein-Neckar Arena. Hoffenheim have already conceded six goals from the two games so far. Moreover the matches between these two teams normally produce 3 or more goals. So it is very likely that both teams will score at least once here.

Wolfsburg are looking like a more balanced side at the moment. They will go into this match as slight favourites. But Hoffenheim just made an excellent come back after going 3 goals down to drew 4-4 at Mainz. This is one of those matches where I go in with a huge risk. These odds below are exciting, also a bit eccentric.
