Did you know that…
…TSG are very strong in the final quarter of an hour?
When a Bundesliga match enters the last 15 minutes, it's Hoffenheim's time to shine. Coach Alfred Schreuder's charges have netted 11 times in the final quarter-hour this term. Only RB Leipzig can beat that (14 goals).
…Hoffenheim have scored in 11 successive league games?
The last time TSG failed to find the net was on Matchday 6, when they lost 3-0 to Borussia Mönchengladbach. Since then, the Kraichgau outfit have netted at least once in every match. Only RB Leipzig and Bayern Munich, who both scored in each of their 17 fixtures in the first half of the season, boast longer goalscoring runs.
…Frankfurt are winless in their last seven Bundesliga outings?
Having beaten Bayern Munich 5-1 at the beginning of November, coach Adi Hütter's team picked up only one more point in their remaining games before the winter break. That run saw SGE drop from seventh to 13th place.
…TSG have not managed a win in their last five meetings with Frankfurt?
TSG supporters will not have fond memories of their recent matches against Eintracht. The last three meetings all ended in defeat; before that came two draws. It is Hoffenheim's longest ongoing winless run against any current Bundesliga club. The time has come to put an end to that streak on Saturday.
