HOF vs KOL Dream11 Team Prediction Tips for Hoffenheim vs Koln Bundesliga Live Score October 16


HOF vs KOL Dream11: Hoffenheim are presently in midtable, and they will be anxious to get back to winning ways here and close the gap on opponents Koln to one point. The visitors, on the other hand, have not lost in their last five Bundesliga games and will be difficult to beat. With home advantage, Hoffenheim will not be afraid to take the fight to Koln offensively, pushing bodies forward in a bid to gain the three points, although this may provide Koln with opportunities on the counter attack, which they are more than capable of exploiting given that they have found the net at least once in every league game they have played so far this season. It should result in a highly entertaining match with chances for both teams.
