Hoffenheim are in poor form at the moment and could soon find themselves out of the European spots. They were beaten 3-0 by high-flying RB Leipzig last time out and struggled to impress offensively, as they had just three shots all game, none of them on target.
The hosts now sit sixth in the Bundesliga standings, with 44 points from 29 games. They will look to return to winning ways this weekend to keep alive their European ambitions.
Greuther Furth, meanwhile, seem doomed for relegation and are running out of time to save themselves. They were beaten 2-0 by Borussia Monchengladbach last weekend, marking yet another goalless outing for the newly promoted team.
Greuther Furth remain rock-bottom in the league with just 16 points picked up all season. They need an extraordinary turn of events to retain their top-flight status.

Hoffenheim vs Greuther Furth Prediction
Hoffenheim are on a three-game losing streak and are winless in their last four, scoring just two goals and conceding nine. They have, however, avoided defeat in three of their last four home games and will look to get their campaign back on track.
Greuther Furth, meanwhile, are on a seven-game winless run and have failed to score in their last three. So Hoffennheim should return to winning ways on Sunday.
Prediction: Hoffenheim 1-0 Greuther Furth.
