Hoffenheim – Liverpool soccer betting review
Hoffenheim beats Liverpool in the first playoff game between the two teams in the Champions League. The meeting is tonight at 19:45 at the Rhein-Neckar Arena in Sinsheim.
RB Leipzig may have stolen the Bundesliga show last season with a surprising second place, but Hoffenheim’s achievement was also amazing and somewhat shadowy. The small club managed to make its best season when it finished fourth in the last campaign. Their previous best achievement was eighth. They are accustomed to being at the bottom of the standings, but the young specialist at the head of the team, Julian Nagelsman, has just done wonders with this team. The Champions League playmaker’s automatic ranking will ease them as they will fail to play directly in the Europa League, so their place in the European club tournaments in the autumn is sure. The Bundesliga season has not yet begun, but Hoffe has begun official matches over the weekend with a 1-0 win over Roth-Wes Erfurt in a first-round match for the German Cup tournament.
Liverpool is among the European Colossi who needed to join and Juergen Klop did just that. The five-time winner of the Champions League as one of their successes in the tournament will be remembered forever – the mad night in Istanbul when they made a great turn over Milan inspired by Steven Gerrard. Liverpool started in the Premiership with a disappointing 3: 3 draw against Watford on Saturday. Previously, they had a very strong pre-season campaign, but it was clear that they still have huge defensive problems. Jurgen Klop is surely pleased that the new recruiter Mohamed Salah scored in his official debut, while Firmino and Manne also scored against the “hurricanes” and were in shape.
Hoffenheim scored 19 goals in their last 20 home games in all races, including a beat over Bayern Munchen and five goals in Borussia Monchengladbach. Liverpool, meanwhile, has made nine of his last 11 matches as a guest in the Champions League league and seems very weak in defense. However, they are also very effective at the top, so we expect to have a result.
Soccer Betting Prediction: Over 2.5 goals
