Hoffenheim Draw no Bet
Most clubs have a got a bogey team that they just cannot seem to topple no matter how hard they try and Hoffenheim most certainly fall into that category for Cologne. Incredibly, Hoffenheim have won the last eight meetings between the clubs and we have to go back 13 previous Bundesliga encounters between the sides to find the last Cologne victory in this fixture in 2015. These sorts of things to tend to make a different from a psychological perspective and bettors should consider backing Hoffenheim on Sunday, albeit in the draw no bet market for added insurance.
Over 2.5 Goals
Alongside a history of positive results for Hoffenheim, this fixture also has a track record of producing excitement. Indeed, seven of the last eight skirmishes between these familiar foes have featured at least three goals and another glut of action could be on the cards in their latest head-to-head on Sunday. The net rattled five times in each of Cologne’s last two home assignments and all the right pieces are in place here for another thriller. As a consequence, we recommend backing over 2.5 goals to hit the net again.
