RB Leipzig are given a price of 3.40 for a victory in the match. Yet, this would not be our choice. Hoffenheim have been excellent since the start of the campaign. They even when they dropped points against the likes of Borussia Dortmund, the team did come in with a lot of grit and determination. RB Leipzig have been going through an inconsistent spell. The three points against Stuttgart in the midweek action largely came about as a result of the opposition’s weaknesses. Our preview would back a win for Hoffenheim.
