Bundesliga Matchday 2 Betting Tips – TSG 1899 Hoffenheim
Hoffenheim will be hoping to get off the mark in this home-game after failing to win a league-match in the final couple of months from last season.
In spite of making a number of deals during this transfer-window, the defensive frailties of Hoffenheim have not quite gone away. Stefan Posch will be suspended after taking a red-card so Stanley Nsoki will be making his first start for the club after coming on as an early substitute to form a new central-defensive trio alongside Ozan Kabak and Kevin Vogt while Oliver Baumann takes his place in goal.
Angeliño became the latest addition to the squad on a year-long loan move and he will probably slot straight into the left wing-back spot with Pavel Kaderábek on the right-flank. Diadié Samassékou will take the enforcer role with Christoph Baumgartner and Grischa Prömel as the two playmakers in the middle of the park. Andrej Kramaric and Georginio Rütter are likely to form the centre-forward partnership.

Bundesliga Matchday 2 Betting Tips – VfL Bochum
Despite making a number of transfers in the summer, Bochum has lost some key players so it will be a difficult season for the club after losing some key players.
Bochum looks weaker defensively and does not have enough experienced options in the centre-back positions. Presently loan-signing Ivan Ordetsand Erhan Masovic are the preferred central-defensive partnership in front of the goalkeeper Manuel Riemann. Danilo Soares and Jannes Horn are both unavailable therefore Konstantinos Stafylidis is certain to occupy the left-back position with Cristian Gamboa on the right.
Hoffenheim also looks a little short on numbers in the central-midfield area. Skipper Anthony Losilla and the new signing Kevin Stöger were deployed as the two holding-midfielders with Takuma Asano in a floating no.10 role. Gerrit Holtmann started as a winger-forward on the left with Simon Zoller on the right. Despite being a new arrival, Philipp Hofmann seems to be the first-choice in the centre-forward position.
