Hoffenheim II vs Kickers Offenbach by Dajkula
Hoffenheim II hosts Kickers Offenbach in round 17 of the Regionalliga Sudwest. The odds opened with 1.6 on home win but strangely now are 1.9. The same odd movement happened in their game vs Trier but the hosts won 3:2. It probably goes to the fact Kickers are stronger then the table says.
Hoffenheim II is third with 31 points, 5 behind the leaders. Hoffenheim is one of the most talented teams in the league and are showing that. They seem to follow the performances of their senior team. There was mention that some of the senior players will come to U23 today but it is not said who it will be. I think it is better not to change the team which is wining and getting some senior players might even hurt them. Hoffenheim has been strong at home with 6-1-1 so far and a fantastic 29:6 goal difference. They have the best home attack while also have conceded small amount of goals. It is a continuation of their great performances from last season.
With a 9 point deficit because of financial problems Kickers are now on 16`th with 15 points and in relegation position. But 6-6-4 till now is not bad at all and I highly doubt Kickers will relegate this season. They had a big turnover of players but the team is compact and talented. Supported by a big fan base they are rock solid at home. There are also a lot of fans on their away games.
Kickers are on a run of 3 losses away from home and they came against good teams like Koblenz, Homburg and Hessen Kassel. Still those teams don`t nearly posses the threat Hoffenheim has. Kickers has 1-3-4 away from home til now. Last year Hoffenheim killed Kickers with 5:1 at home.
Hoffenheim is without Jannik Dehm(def.12-0), Aron Viventi(att.0-0)and Luca Dähn(def.2-0) while very important captain Marco Engelhardt is back from suspension.
For Kickers the midfielders Theodosiadis(13-1), Gocer(11-0) and defender Maier(7-0) are absent today.
Hoffenheim is the better team and they need to show it today.
