In the last six rounds, Hoeneß's players have achieved only one victory over Wolfsburg at home (3-1). On October 2, the Blue-Whites lost in the away confrontation against Stuttgart (3-1). Hoffenheim was let down by an unconfident game in defense. Because of this, the Blue-Whites were losing with a score of 0-3 by the 81st minute. The goal of Jacob Bruun Larsen saved them from a romp.

FC Koln is in 6th position in the Bundesliga standings (12 points after seven rounds). The Goats chalked up three victories, three draws, and one defeat. After the arrival of the new head coach in the summer, FC Koln leaves a pleasant impression. If we look at away matches, Baumgart's men lost only to Bayern Munich (3-2). In all other rounds, the Goats invariably scored points thanks to the attacking style. The bet on an exchange of goals scored took place in the last eight matches of FC Koln in all tournaments. On October 1, the Red-Whites extended their unbeaten streak in the Bundesliga to five games thanks to a 3-1 win over Greuther Furth at home. The Cloverleaves took the lead in the 7th minute, but this did not bother the Goats, who responded with a brace of Ellyes Skhiri and an accurate shot by Sebastian Andersson.
Hoffenheim had an excellent streak of head-to-head matches against FC Koln in recent seasons, but it could end on Friday. Under Baumgart, the Goats turned into unyielding opponents, who lost away only to Bayern Munich. Although FC Koln concedes in every game, its attack can create problems for the defense of the Blue-Whites. In addition, the hosts lack stability in front of the native stands. For this reason, Hoffenheim celebrated only one victory in three starting home rounds.
Prediction for the match: FC Koln to win with +0.5 handicap
