The Bundesliga is back as we take a look at Sunday’s match where Frankfurt vs Hoffenheim takes place at the Commerzbank Arena. The home team will look to improve on their position from last year where they finished in 7th. On the other hand, despite finishing 9th last year, Hoffenheim are likely going to find it difficult this year as they did not invest in players despite losing a few of their key figures. We are in for a competitive matchup where we’ll see both teams looking to leave Commerzbank Arena with 3 points in their opening match.

Frankfurt vs Hoffenheim Prediction & Match Preview

Sunday, August 18 – 09:30 EST – Commerzbank Arena

Frankfurt enjoyed a spectacular campaign in 2018/19. They reached the UEFA Europa League semi-finals and were unfortunate to finish in only 7th place. With the departures of Luka Jovic and Sebastien Haller, Frankfurt will find it difficult to fill the gap of these two big money departures. Frankfurt are unbeaten in four games against Hoffenheim, who have won on just one of their last five visits to the Commerzbank Arena. The home team will look to build on that record.

Julian Nagelsmann’s Hoffenheim finished in 9th last season just 3 points behind Eintracht. Hoffenheim lost a lot of key players such as Joelinton, Nico Schulz and Kerem Derimbay. It will be difficult for Hoffenheim to cope with these departures. It can be said that both teams are in similar situations. They both lost their key difference makers on the pitch. They will rely heavily on Nagelsmann’s tactics and ingenuity to guide them in the absence of established players. Expect an even clash between two teams who are going to look to overachieve and aim to finish above mid table this season.
