The Bundesliga is back in action with another set of fixtures this weekend as Hoffenheim take on RB Leipzig on Saturday. Both teams have good players in their ranks and will want to win this game.

Hoffenheim are in 10th place in the Bundesliga standings and have not been at their best this season. The hosts suffered a 2-0 defeat against VfL Bochum in their previous game and will need to bounce back in this match.

RB Leipzig, on the other hand, are in fifth place in the league table at the moment and are yet to hit their stride this year. The away side edged Borussia Dortmund to a 2-1 victory earlier this month and will want a similar result in this fixture.

RB Leipzig are unbeaten in their last seven Bundesliga games and have recovered from a poor start to their campaign. The likes of Dani Olmo and RB Leipzig can be lethal on their day and will want to make their mark this weekend.

Hoffenheim have not been particularly impressive so far this season and will need to make amends on Saturday. RB Leipzig are the better team at the moment and should be able to win this game.
