Our prediction for this Europa League match:
As expected, Hoffenheim defeated Crvena Zvezda in the opening match of their Europa League campaign. The Bundesliga outfit broke the deadlock in the second half, with Baumgartner and Dabbur find the net in style. Hoffenheim aim to cement top position in Group L, and they are likely to adopt an attack-minded approach in Thursday’s football game.
Gent have been struggling in all competitions at the start of the season, and seeing that the match will be played behind closed doors, we believe that there is a big value in betting on the German outfit. Even though Andrej Kramaric, Kasim Adams Nuhu and Pavel Kaderabek remain quarantined, we are tempted to put our money on Hoffenheim as they have strength in depth. This will be the first meeting between the two teams in European competitions.
