This Wednesday, Bundesliga Match Day 28 will take place with ten teams scheduled to play against each other.

One of those teams will be Hoffenheim. They will take on FC Koln for their 28th league appearance of the season. They managed a 1-1 draw against SC Paderborn over the weekend and are now

9th on the league table. They remain without a single victory in their last six games; LDLDLD. Hoffenheim has 10W, 6D and 11L in 27 league appearances. They have conceded 47 goals but have scored 36 times which leaves them with a -11GD this season.

Andrej Kramaric who has 7 goals and 2 assists will be a part of Hoffenheim’s attack. Meanwhile, Sarjis Adamyan with 5 goals will also be looking to extend his goal tally when his team faces FC Koln at their home stadium.

Meanwhile, FC Koln will be looking to get back to winning ways after the 2-2 draw against Fortuna Duesseldorf over the weekend. FC Koln are 10th on the Bundesliga table and have 33 points. Koln has managed three victories in their last six Bundesliga matches; LWWWLD. Having conceded 47 at their end, they have scored 41 times and have 10W, 4D, and 13L. Markus Gisdol, coach of FC Koln will likely use his preferred 4-2-3-1 formation with Jhon Cordoba leading the attack. Jhon would be looking to stretch his impressive tally of 11 goals starting from Wednesday. He also has 1 assist to his name.
