On Saturday afternoon, Hoffenheim and Hertha Berlin clash at the PreZero Arena in a potentially season-defining clash at the bottom of the Bundesliga table.Hoffenheim form guide
A horrendous run of recent form has seen the team from Sinsheim sink all the way to the bottom of the Bundesliga table. In fact, Hoffenheim is winless in 14 league games, having suffered 12 defeats in the run. That poor recent run includes losing their last seven matches in the German top flight.
Although the home team has had problems at both ends of the field in recent months, the fact that they have failed to score in three of their last four league games has been a big contributing factor to their recent woeful form.
Hoffenheim has also lost seven of their last eight home games in the Bundesliga while also conceding at least two goals in seven of the matches.Hertha Berlin form guide
The team from the German capital are just a point outside the relegation play-off spot in the Bundesliga after another inconsistent run of league form. A 1-1 home draw with Mainz last time out means they have won one of their previous four outings in the German top flight.
One of Hertha’s main problems of late has been a leaky defence, as they have conceded at least two goals in six of their previous nine league outings.
Hertha Berlin has been genuinely woeful on their travels of late, as they have lost their last seven away games in the Bundesliga while conceding at least two goals in six of the defeats.Latest team news

This game is between a poor home side and a team that performs away from just as badly. I cannot separate these two teams, so I am backing the draw.
