Hoffenheim vs RB Leipzig Betting Tips: Over 2.5 / BTTS

Now unbeaten in nine matches, RB Leipzig secured a crucial 4-1 victory against Dortmund last weekend to move five points clear of BVB in the race for Champions League places.

Currently fourth in the division, just two points behind third-placed Stuttgart, RB have enjoyed a fine run of form in the Bundesliga with victories collected in seven of their last eight games played since the start of March. 

An entertaining side, goals can usually be expected when RB are involved. Marco Rose´s side have a fabulous away record for goals chasers with the Leipzig side remarkably seeing BTTS and over 2.5 goals scored in nine of their last ten away league fixtures. All ten of those games saw both teams scoring while only once did we not see at least three goals netted.

Like RB, Hoffenheim have been just as reliable for goal chasers this season. The hosts have seen BTTS in 16 of their last 18 home Bundesliga matches while 14 of those games also saw at least three goals netted.

More recently, Hoffenheim have seen BTTS and over 2.5 goals in eight of their last nine league games while over 3.5 goals were scored in six of those eight matches. An average of 4.33 goals have been scored in the hosts last nine home fixtures. 

Placed ninth in the division and six points short of European qualification, Hoffenheim have endured an inconsistent season at PreZero Arena. Pellegrino Mattarazo´s side won five, lost six and drawn four of 15 Bundesliga games in Sinsheim. 

Considering all of the numbers above, we can be very confident in seeing BTTS, over 3.5 goals and plenty of action in a likely entertaining Bundesliga contest.
