HOF Vs KOL Dream11 Team Probable Playing 11 And Match Report: Two regressing defences go at loggerheads in a must win tie for either side
On an unstoppable downward spiral in the league, when Hoffenheim and Koln square off against each other today, this tie comes bearing with it colossal ramifications for either side. Adjacent to each other in the league, the three points today would help instil some kind of semblance for the winners today.
For the home side Hoffenheim, even a draw would not serve them judiciously today. The 1-1 draw to Paderborn the last time around now leaves the side bereft of a win in its last five encounters, horrendous and appalling form which has seen them plummet all the way down into 9th spot in the points tally.
With their defence shipping goals left, right and centre at the moment, Koln will be quietly confident of pummelling Hoffenheim today and with them moving above their competitors today. The side managed to draw 2-2 with Dusseldorf the last time around, a result which sees them currently unbeaten in two straight matches.
While both the defences are abject and apathy filled, its Hoffenheim’s callous attack which will undo them today. With Koln showing ther attacking flair off late, the visitors should manage to rake up goals at regular intervals and rise to the occasion to pull off a win today.

- Belfodil and Kramaric will both sit out another encounter for Hoffenheim with the duo yet to recover from its injury.
