- The two teams will compete for the first time this Tuesday.
Hoffenheim vs Manchester City: Prediction
Hoffenheim finished the three-game unbeaten run on Saturday when they easily lost 1-2 at home to RB Leipzig. They are 12th in the Bundesliga standings after the defeat. It marked the disappointing start of the new national season for Nagelsmann and his men.
The hosts have great difficulty keeping things in the back. They have allowed at least one goal in eight games in all competitions this season. It will certainly be music for the ears of Sergio Agüero & Company.
Manchester City has a very exciting lineup attack that has responded well after the UCL defeat in Lyon. The citizens have accumulated 10 good goals in three national games. To further improve its form, Man City has kept the clean sheets in four of the last five competitions.
The visitors are in an inevitable situation after the initial defeat. They will enter this category as massive favorites and we can not see the defensive line of Hoffenheim fighting against the citizens here.
The win outside is a bank bet with a difference of 1.40, while you can also win Man City to win by two goals or more with 2.10 odds.
