MATCH PREVIEW

TSG Hoffenheim lock horns with Bayer Leverkusen in match day 27 of the Bundesliga, as both teams look to boost their hopes for European competition after the international break.

Hoffenheim are battling to reach the top six, but it was further halted as they failed to get the positive result before the break against VFB Stuttgart, who are in relegation mode. However, Hoffenheim do come in with wins in both of their past two home matches.

Bayer Leverkusen have struggled defensively of late, conceding at least one goal in 10 consecutive away matches, even though they defeated Hannover in their last trip, making it four wins in their last five away from home.

TSG Hoffenheim trashed Bayer Leverkusen 4-1 in the reverse fixture, with Joelinton scoring twice.

Meanwhile, there are few injury concerns, as Hoffenheim will be without Dennis Geiger (groin), Andrej Kramaric (knee), Nico Schulz (suspended) and Adam Szalai (stomach bug), while Leverkusen will miss out on Wendell (suspended).

PREDICTED LINEUPS

TSG Hoffenheim: Oliver Baumann (GK), Stefan Posch, Kevin Vogt (C), Ermin Bicakcic, Pavel Kaderabek, Florian Grillitsch, Nadiem Amiri, Joshua Brenet, Kerem Demirbay, Joelinton, Ishak Belfodil

Bayer Leverkusen: Lukas Hradecky (GK), Tin Jedvaj, Jonathan Tah, Sven Bender, Mitchell Weiser, Charles Aranguiz, Kai Havertz, Julian Brandt, Karim Bellarabi, Kevin Volland (C), Leon Bailey
