Hoffenheim will host Borussia Monchengladbach at the PreZero Arena on Saturday in another round of the German Bundesliga campaign.
The home side are struggling for form in the league at the moment after a fairly decent start to their season and now find themselves in the bottom half of the table. They played out a 2-2 home draw against Stuttgart in their last game, with Andrej Kramaric scoring an early opener and a late leveler for the Blues.
Hoffenheim sit 13th in the Bundesliga standings with 19 points from 17 games and will be hopeful of adding to that tally this Saturday.
Borussia Monchengladbach have also had their struggles this season, rapidly falling behind in the race for European football. They were beaten 1-0 by Augsburg last time out and could have no complaints after a lackluster performance which finally saw them fall behind in the 82nd minute.
The visitors sit ninth in the league table, with 22 points from 17 games. They will now look to shake off their latest results and return to winning ways this weekend.
