    The top of the table in the German Bundesliga is incredibly tight. In fact, on Friday night ninth-place Hoffenheim have the chance to move all the way up to second place if they win at struggling Koln.

    The rise up the table will likely be temporary, as the teams above them will have a weekend game in-hand on Alfred Schreuder’s side. However, it is still likely to leave Hoffenheim in a healthy position in the German top-flight after an underwhelming start to the campaign.

    Die Kraichgauer will be confident of recording a victory too at a Koln side in poor form, currently sitting in the relegation zone.

    In fact, Achim Beierlorzer’s side has now suffered three straight defeats in all competitions. One win in their last seven Bundesliga outings is relegation form.

    The home side is faring little better this season after promotion than they did in their last spell in the German top-flight. However, despite all the negatives, a win would move them out of the drop zone.

    Poor defensive displays have been a major problem for Koln, as they have now conceded at least two goals in four of their last six matches in the Bundesliga. With Hoffenheim in such good form there is no ruling out another high-score from Friday night’s visitors.

    Talking of Hoffenheim’s form, the visitors have won their last five matches in all competitions, including their last four in the Bundesliga. A 3-0 home win over Paderborn last time out means that they have scored at least two goals in their last four league outings.

    The visitors are also undefeated in four away matches in the Bundesliga, having recorded victories against Bayern Munich and Hertha Berlin.

    Forebet predicts that this game will go with the form book, Hoffenheim continuing their fine form by recording a victory in a high-scoring encounter.
