Our prediction for this Europa League match:
Top position in Group L will be at stake when Crvena Zvezda and Hoffenheim face each other at Stadion Rajko Mitic on Thursday evening. Dejan Stankovic’s men booked their place in the last 32 thanks to a 2-0 win over Gent, and they must be high on confidence ahead of the visit of Hoffenheim. The Serbian champions, though, will be without key player Aleksandar Katai in Thursday’s showdown, which is probably the main reason why home win should not be considered.
Midfielder Sanogo returns to contention after serving his ban against Gent. Hoffenheim, on the other hand, aim to keep their 100% record in the 2020/21 Europa League campaign intact, but they should be happy with one point from the match. Stafylidis, Hubner, and Bicakcic are injured for the visitors, while Bruun Larsen and Adamyan have been tested positive for coronavirus.
