Greuther Furth and Hoffenheim will battle for three points in a matchday 13 Bundesliga fixture on Saturday.

The home side come into the game on the back of a 4-0 thrashing at the hands of Borussia Monchengladbach. Jonas Hoffman kickstarted and ended the scoring in the rout.

Hoffenheim secured maximum points with a 2-0 home win over RB Leipzig on home turf. Diadie Samassekou and Munas Dabbur scored in either half to guide their side to victory.

The win saw Die Kraichgauer climb to 10th spot on the table, having garnered 17 points from 12 matches. Greuther Furth are still rooted to the bottom of the table and their record of one point from 12 matches is the worst start to a season in Bundesliga history.

Greuther Furth vs Hoffenheim Prediction

Greuther Furth's atrocious start to the campaign has installed them as early favorites for relegation after just one season back in the top-flight.

Hoffenheim have been largely inconsistent this season and their form on the road has been particularly poor. However, they will fancy their chances of a first away win in the league since matchday one.

We are backing the visitors to secure a comfortable victory.

Prediction: Greuther Furth 0-3 Hoffenheim
