Hoffenheim have not exactly hit the ground running so far this season, but striker Adam Szalai has been in decent form. The Hungarian has three goals in the Bundesliga, so he is one to keep an eye on when they are going forward, which could be rare against City. Austrian midfielder Florian Grillitsch is another to keep an eye on. He scored in the home draw with Shakhtar, and he will have a huge role in trying to stop City’s midfield from playing with their usual gusto.
Pep Guardiola remains without backup goalkeeper Claudio Bravo after his Achilles injury. Missing out along with him is attacking midfielder Kevin De Bruyne and center backs Philippe Sandler and Eliaquim Mangala as well. With a match against Liverpool next weekend, City could rotate slightly here while still remaining very strong.
Much like last season, Raheem Sterling has begun quite well and is in goal scoring form this. The English attacker has great teammates that make it easier to score, no doubt, but he’s still doing well to score the number of goals that he is. Four of those in the PL have him off to a fine start. Another man to watch is one that needs to get going. And that’s Gabriel Jesus. The Brazilian hasn’t had the best of form in recent months for club or country and needs a wake-up call.
Hoffenheim will come into this match in a spot of bother. They are down in tenth place in the German Bundesliga having only won two of their opening six matches. They have only won one of the last four in that comp as well, with their most recent home outing to RB Leipzig ending in defeat yet again. With that said, they have yet to lose a home match besides that, but they have struggled against higher quality sides, like Bayern, BVB, and Shakhtar Donetsk.
Manchester City will enter this match having returned to the summit of English football at the weekend. The defending champions took first place in the BPL after Liverpool and Chelsea drew at Stamford Bridge and they won against Brighton in a routine affair for them. The Citizens have yet to hit their stride yet, but that is a scary notion because they’ve only lost the once, to Lyon, in the first match of the group, and dropped points just once so far in league play.WIRSOL Rhein-Neckar-Arena will host Tuesday’s football game between Hoffenheim and Manchester City.
Hoffenheim produced a fine display in their opener and they were on the verge of beating Shakhtar in Donetsk. However, the Ukrainians eventually scored a late equalizer and the two teams shared the spoils. The Bundesliga side face a difficult task against Manchester City and seeing that the Citizens are desperate to record their first win of the process, we do not believe that there is a big value in betting on the hosts. Pep Guardiola’s men aim to bounce back from a shocking 2-1 loss to Olympique Lyon and we predict that they are going to leave their hearts on the field. A man to watch in the away team will be Kun Aguero, who has been scoring goals for fun in the 2018/2019 Premier League campaign and we believe that he will prove a handful for the opposition defenders.
Pavel Kaderabek is a Czech Republic defender born on 25 April 1992, who has enjoyed a bright start to his professional career. Coming through the youth ranks at Sparta Prague and gaining some first team experience during a loan spell with Viktoria Zizkov, the right-sided defender was finally able to show what he is capable of during the 2012/2013 season and he didn’t need a lot of time to make the next step in his career. After scoring impressive 10 goals in 76 league appearances for Sparta Prague, Kaderabek joined Bundesliga side Hoffenheim in the summer of 2015, shortly after he had established himself as a starting right-back in the Czech Republic national team. The talented footballer helped Repre make it to the Euro 2016 finals by starting 9 qualifying matches, once again proving his killer instinct by scoring two goals. Pavel Kaderabek looks set to become one of leading players of the new generation and a big club move may not be far away either.
Manchester City are the lest famous of the two major clubs based in Manchester. The club was founded in 1880, but they have been struggling in the English Premier League in the past. Nonetheless, ever since the club was purchased by Abu Dhabi United Group in 2008, the Citizens have been playing an important role in the English top flight. Manchester City won two Premier League trophies under Roberto Mancini and Manuel Pellegrini (2011/2012 and 2013/2014), butboth managers eventually paid the price for some disappointing results. Man City play their home games at the Etihad Stadium and the stadium capacity is 55,097. Manchester United are regarded as Manchester City’s biggest rivals and the likes of Kun Aguero, Carlos Tevez, Shaun Wright-Phillips, Uwe Rosler, Yaya Toure, Sylvain Distin are some of the most remarkable players that played for the Etihad Stadium outfit. Manchester City have won four Premier League titles and five FA Cup trophies and it has to be noted that they made it to the Champions League semis in the 2015/2016 season.
