22nd round of german Bundesliga. In this post tips and reviews of Hoffenheim-Mainz, Borussia Dortmund-Schalke 04 e Eintracht Frankfurt-Hamburger.
BORUSSIA DORTMUND - SCHALKE 04
Di Matteo has found the right game plan for its team: a 3-5-2, high pressing in the midfield and the 2 dynamic wing backs, able to attack and defend at the same time.
Schalke 04 is conceding less goals than before. Schalke will try to hit mainly with its fast counterattacks.
Borussia has a different game style since Klopp loves attacking.
Borussia will probably start with a low barycenter, paying attention at Schalke's counterattacks. First half should be poor of goals.
POSSIBLE SCORE: 2-2
BORUSSIA DORTMUND: Weidenfeller, Sokratis, Subotic, Hummels, Schmelzer, Gündogan,
Sahin, Blaszczykowski, Kagawa, Reus, Aubameyang.
SCHALKE 04: Wellenreuther, Höwedes, Neustädter, Nastasic, Barnetta, Fuchs, Aogo, Höger, K.-P. Boateng, Choupo-Moting, Huntelaar.
HOFFENHEIM - MAINZ
Hoffenheim has collected 6 OVER 1.5 in the first half in the last 6 matches. It is a clear manifestation that Gisdol's team start the matches attacking and trying to secure the result but the problem is the defence which concedes goals very happily.
Mainz ended last 2 matches with the sign OVER 3.5.
HOFFENHEIM: Baumann, Beck, Abraham, Bicakcic, J.-S. Kim, Rudy, Polanski, Volland, Roberto Firmino, Elyounoussi, Szalai.
MAINZ: Karius, Brosinski, Bungert, Bell, Bengtsson, Geis, Baumgartlinger, de Blasis, Malli, Clemens, Okazaki.
EINTRACHT FRANKFURT - HAMBURGER
Hoffenheim is the third team in the virtual standings about shoot attempts and also the third best attack in the Bundesliga.
The problem is its defense is the seoncd worst defense in the league. Hamburger struggles when it comes to score.
Eintracht average goal in a match is 3,8 (scored and conceded) and it is very high. Anyway since Hamburger has a real problem in its attacking phase we prefer 1 at GOAL and OVER2.5.
EINTRACHT FRANKFURT: Trapp, Chandler, Russ, Anderson, Oczipka, Hasebe, Stendera,
Aigner, Inui, Piazon, Meier.
HAMBURGER: Drobny, Diekmeier, Djourou, Rajkovic, Ostrzolek, Kacar, Jiracek, N. Müller, Stieber, Gouaida, Rudnevs.
