Hoffenheim set to host a thriller
Hoffenheim are not living up to their early-season promise and they are in for another tough test at home to Augsburg on Monday night.
Hoffenheim won their opening two league games, which included an emphatic 4-1 win over champions Bayern, but they are winless in seven outings since.
Defensive deficiencies are costing Hoffenheim dearly and they still await their first clean sheet of the campaign. In fact, only five teams have conceded more than their 16-goal total.
However, they have no problem locating the net and they have failed to score in just one of their nine league games, which was the narrow 1-0 home defeat to Borussia Dortmund.
Both teams have scored in eight of their nine league games and the trend should continue against Augsburg, who have also seen the net bulge at both ends in four of their five away matches.
Five of the last six meetings between the pair have featured three or more goals and we predict this to be another lively encounter.
Augsburg have shared the spoils in three of their last five away games and with goals on the menu, we are opting for a 2-2 draw at tasty odds.
