Liverpool vs Hoffenheim: Preview & Prediction
Liverpool Klopp’s Liverpool have taken a very important step towards the group stage of the Champions League, something that has not happened frequently in recent years.
Liverpool won 2-1 in Germany and knows it’s up to them to enter the group stage. With a strong squad and with many attack solutions, Mané, Salah, Firmino and even Coutinho who is still injured but when to recover
Will be an important element in this team if it is not consummated the exit to Barcelona. This Liverpool always plays an attacking football, showy in offensive terms and like to score many goals.
In the league they entered with a draw in Watford to 3 goals in an exciting game and last weekend they won the Crystal Palace 1-0 in a more complicated encounter but that justified the victory.
Hoffenheim the Germans who held an excellent championship last season took a false step in this Champions League Play Off when they lost by 1-2 at home to Klopp’s side.
Of course they were not favorites but there was much delusion to enter the group stage of the Champions League.
The squad is reasonable but they are inferior to Liverpool and this seems to me obvious. At home in the Bundesliga debut they won 1-0 at Werder Bremen and do not give up on this Play Off where they took on ambition to go on to win England goals although they recognized that the mission is very, very complicated.
Liverpool vs Hoffenheim:
Liverpool at home are a strong team, plenty of game dynamics, great offensive volume with many invested in organized football and fast transitions. They have fast, strong and versatile players in front of attack and this was important in the victory in Germany.
Klopp has a clear sense of the real value of these German teams and prepared the team well to beat the Bavarians in their own stronghold.
In Liverpool I expect a Liverpool to its style, offensive, to attack and not to settle with the result that is very favorable to him. I see the English come back to win this meeting.
