Our prediction for this Bundesliga match:
Hoffenheim will be looking to make amends for a heavy 4-0 loss to rock-bottom Schalke when they take on Arminia Bielefeld on Matchday 16. Hoffenheim have been struggling at the back at the start of the year, but the game against Arminia Bielefeld could be the turning point for Andrej Kramaric and Co. Even though several first-team regulars remain in the recovery room, home win should be considered.
Arminia, on the other hand, picked up vital three points in the relegation battle at the weekend, with the team beating Hertha Berlin thanks to Reinhold Yabo’s goal. The newcomers regained a much-needed confidence, but given their poor away record in the German top flight, we do not believe that they are capable of spoiling Hoffenheim’s party at PreZero Arena. This will be the first meeting between the two clubs since May 2009 when Hoffenheim defeated Arminia Bielefeld 2-0.
