The contenders

Hamburger SV

A brave and bold Hamburger SV is determined to snatch an important win against Hoffenheim.

 

Just recently, the squad stunned Borussia Dortmund in a 1-0 win, much to the surprise of many. The said win enabled the club to move into the 17th spot of the table. But while it is true that the win barely removed them from the dreaded zone, it was enough to generate inspiration for the club.

 

Hoffenheim

Hoffenheim emerged as the season’s dark horse. The club has readily outlasted the biggest and more popular squads in the league. Its recent success was beating Schalke with a score of 2-1. As a result, Hoffenheim was able to strengthen its grip on the 2nd spot of the table. Should they continue such impressive performance, there is a high possibility for the squad to qualify for the Champions League next season.

 

Possible head turner

Adam Szalai displayed his attacking prowess during Hoffenheim’s encounter against Schalke. Needless to say, he is one of the prolific figures that the host should be wary of. Similarly, Hamburger must also keep its tabs on Roberto Firmino. The midfielder is a certified threat who can readily create goal scoring opportunities for the club.

 

Prediction

Hamburger SV 1-3 Hoffenheim
