Leipzig will face Hoffenheim in week 30 of the 2022/2023 German League which can be watched via live streaming on ESPN on Saturday, April 29, 2023, ET. This match will be a test for the two teams who are at different ends of the standings. RB Leipzig are aiming to qualify for next season’s Champions League, while Hoffenheim are struggling to stay in the top flight.
Leipzig are currently in fifth place with 51 points, two points behind fourth-placed Freiburg who currently have a place in the Champions League. Sixth-placed Bayer Leverkusen, the first club outside of the Europa League places, are four points away from Leipzig. Leipzig lost 2-0 at BayArena against Bayer Leverkusen in their last Bundesliga fixture.
The defeat added to Leipzig’s suffering, which had previously been eliminated from the Champions League 8-1 on aggregate from Manchester City in the round of 16. Leipzig’s confidence is likely to have plummeted and they will need to pick themselves up soon if they are to play European football again next season, as it is possible that their six-point lead to seventh could be eroded in their five remaining league matches.
Leipzig have a DFB-Pokal semi-final against Freiburg to come as some consolation after this game but more importantly they will be looking to continue improving on their already solid historical H2H home record against Hoffenheim.
The home team also picked up a win in the first leg (3-1) to put them ahead in the first half, something that is not unusual for Leipzig who have the third most number of first half leads in the Bundesliga (14) this season.
Timo Werner has been central to Leipzig’s success at home, with the German scoring in each of their last four wins at the Red Bull Arena. Christopher Nkunku has also been a key player for Leipzig this season. Nkunku is their top scorer with 12 goals, which is the fifth highest tally in the league in the 2022/2023 season, four of which were important game openers.
Meanwhile, Hoffenheim are currently in 14th place with 29 points. Only four points clear of the red zone ahead of this round, Hoffenheim certainly can’t feel comfortable. But by working hard for three wins from their last five Bundesliga matches (W3, D1, L1), they have shown a fighting spirit.
Hoffenheim had put together a four-match unbeaten streak before losing 3-1 to Cologne at home in the last round. Hoffenheim may not be too disappointed to go out of town to avenge that defeat when considering that they came away with points from their last two away league games.
Hoffenheim’s most prolific player is Andrej Kramaric, who has scored nine goals, including the opening five goals of the game. Georginio Rutter also scored the only goal for TSG in the first meeting against Leipzig in the 50th minute.
