Total over 2.5
Two Bundesliga disappointments this season, Hoffenheim and Bayer Leverkusen will meet on matchday 20.
After Christmas, Hoffenheim managed to score only one point in the match against Stuttgart in four matches – Andrei Kramarić equalized in the 4th minute of added time. Leipzig also lost in the domestic cup. As practice shows, it is not enough for the hosts to win a good match in attack, huge holes and failures in defense thwart any offensive endeavors. Hoffenheim have conceded 15 goals in their last five official meetings, dropping the team to 14th.
Bayer had a terrible start to the championship, the team was in the relegation zone for a long time. Now there is no stability in the game, it seems that the players have given up and want to finish this season as soon as possible. Bayer is 10 points short of 6th place in the European Cup, I expect a reshuffle from the coaches and maximum return from the players in the next matches, Bayer can and should add, I remind the bookmakers at the beginning of the season to put the team in the TOP-4.
Taking into account the match without taking into account the home own goals and the instability of the guests in this pair, a combined position above 2.5 looks favorable in my opinion.
