Bundesliga | TSG 1899 Hoffenheim VS RB Leipzig; Saturday, 04 May at 02:30 GMT +8

RB Leipzig secured a 4-1 victory against Dortmund, moving five points clear of BVB in the Champions League race. Currently fourth in the Bundesliga, RB have a strong run of form, having victories in seven of their last eight games since March. They have a great away record for goals chasers, with BTTS and over 2.5 goals scored in nine of their last ten away league fixtures. Hoffenheim have also been reliable for goal chasers, with BTTS in 16 of their last 18 home Bundesliga matches, 14 of which saw at least three goals netted. They have also scored over 3.5 goals in six of their last nine matches, an average of 4.33 goals. Despite their inconsistent season at PreZero Arena, it is likely that RB Leipzig will face Hoffenheim in an entertaining Bundesliga contest.

Hoffenheim manager Pellegrino Matarazzo will not be playing Marco John, Bambasé Conté, Mergim Berisha, and Stanley Nsoki due to injuries. Umut Tohumcu will also be unavailable due to suspension. Hoffenheim is expected to use a 3-5-2 formation.

RB Leipzig’s Marco Rose has no fitness concerns ahead of their upcoming match against FC Nürnberg. The team is expected to use a 4-4-2 lineup, starting Peter Gulacsi, Benjamin Henrichs, Willi Orban, Castello Lukeba, David Raum, Dani Olmo, Amadou Haidara, Xaver Schlager, Xavi Simons.
