We're heading back to Germany for some Friday night fun, and Kev thinks the hosts Hoffenheim are set for a big win.
In-form hosts to win again
Hoffenheim v Paderborn Friday 01 November, 19:30 Live on BT Sport and Betfair Live Video
Mayhem in Mallroca last night, as the hosts Real led twice against Osasuna, but they were twice pegged back in a 2-2 draw. No harm done, as we had our stake returned.
We'll speed back to Germany now, and head to the south of the country. In-form Hoffenheim are facing Paderborn, and I suspect the hosts will extend their winning streak.
Sometimes a moment or a result can change an entire season, and Hoffenheim's recent victory at Bayern Munich (the first in their history) may well have kickstarted the Alfred Schreuder era. After a series of messy, confused displays, TSG have finally clicked into gear.
Hoffe have now won their last three matches in the league, and they also saw off Duisburg in midweek in the DFB Cup. The return of Croatian forward Andrej Kramaric (arguably their best player) has been timely, and he has scored in his last two league appearances against Schalke and Hertha Berlin.
Paderborn recently boosted their survival hopes with a 2-0 win over Fortuna Dusseldorf, but they still seem short of the level required to truly compete at this level. On the road, they have taken just a point from their four matches, and they have conceded at least twice in three of those four away games. They tumbled out of the DFB Cup in limp fashion in midweek, losing 1-0 at Bayer Leverkusen.
Hoffenheim are in form and the return of Kramaric has been a huge boost. The hosts should win this with room to spare.
