Reasons for betting on Liverpool vs. Hoffenheim tip
Liverpool had a tremendous luck against Crystal Palace, and if the guests in that match had a little more concentration, the Reds would probably disappoint their fans once again. Now they have an opportunity to proceed to the group stage of the Champions League, which was one of the goals before the start of the season. One goal advantage earned in Germany should be enough for them, but Hoffenheim is not going to come to Enfield with a white flag. It is a perfect match for us punters to use our betting knowledge and earn some cash.
One very pale and unconvincing performance was seen from Liverpool this weekend. Crystal Palace almost got away with one point, but eventually, Jurgen Klopp’s boys saved their fans from pulling their hair off. Liverpool cannot find any consistency lately, and they are oscillating very much. Though they do have 4 games in a row without a defeat, some of them were very disturbing regarding the quality of the performance. In past 10 games, Liverpool has only 2 draws, but it seems that something is missing in their game. Philippe Coutinho’s status is still not clear, and that is the biggest problem for the club from Anfield. The game vs. Crystal Palace was the first event after 4 straight where we have seen both teams to score. 6 of the previous 8 matches ended with over 2.5 goals. Jurgen Klopp’s approach guarantees efficient matches and exciting events. Adam Lallana, Nathaniel Clyne, and Danny Ings will miss this clash because of an injury. Philippe Coutinho will probably be absent also because of his situation.
If it hadn’t been for Andrej Kramaric’s lousy penalty kick, the German team would probably be in a much better situation now. Even after that setback, they had several promising chances which unfortunately they didn’t convert into a goal. In the season opener of Bundesliga, Hoffenheim was better against Werder Bremen with a minimal result 1-0. Unlike Liverpool, their games often end without many goals. 6 from 10 latest matches finished without both teams to score. In past 3 wins, the guests managed to keep the clean sheets. But the current situation demands more offensive style of play, because they need to catch up the one goal deficit. Only Kevin Akpoguma is doubtful for this encounter because of his fitness.

The first leg in Germany was the first time when these two sides met.
Prediction for Liverpool vs. Hoffenheim tip
Liverpool is not playing well when they clash with the teams who prefer a defensive approach to the game. In this case, the guest will have to play open at some point, and this is why we think that a high-efficient game is possible at Anfield. Over 2.5 goals is, in our opinion, the safest choice in this case. The second one would be over 1.5 goals in the second halftime.
