They followed that up with a 4-0 win against Benfica in their most recent outing.
Die Kraichgauer continue to look blunt
Hoffenheim go into this encounter hoping to turn a page, as performances in recent matches have been pretty scrappy. Sebastian Hoeneß and his side are a bit back and forth at the moment, but at least mostly forth, as they beat Wolfsburg by 3-1. Following that up proved too difficult as they lost 3-1 against VfB Stuttgart, before claiming 3 points in a 5-0 win against FC Koln.
