The Leipzig vs. Hoffenheim match will be played on Monday, February 25, at the Red Bull Arena, Leipzig. This is the last match of Bundesliga round 23. Leipzig is currently 4th on the table with 41 points, while Hoffenheim is 8th on the table with 33 points at the moment.
These teams played six matches against each other so far. Leipzig recorded three wins, Hoffenheim had two victories, while one match, the first they played, ended in a draw. In all matches except for the last they played, we saw over 2.5 goals.
With a series of good results, Leipzig climbed up the table and they are currently fourth, with the potential to be the third after the match against Hoffenheim, if they record a victory. It is hard to expect they can challenge Borussia Dortmund and Bayern Munich in the fight for the title, but a top four finish would be regarded as a success in Leipzig. Wolfsburg will probably be their biggest rival for that place. They are currently 5th with 38 points.

Hoffenheim had a great start of the season, but without a single win in December they significantly dropped down the table. If they beat Leipzig, they might return in the battle for the European competitions. If they lose, the mid-table finish will be their reality this season.
