Sunday Football Tips: Back a 5/1 Hoffenheim treble

Grischa Promel is the man for fouls for Hoffenheim

Paul Higham has a 5/16.00 Bet Builder treble on offer for Sunday's Bundesliga game between Hoffenheim and Koln...

Hoffenheim haven't won in six games as their European push has stuttered, but they'll hope to get back on track as they host struggling Koln.

The visitors earned a shock win over Frankfurt last time out to give them a sniff of getting out of the relegation zone - they're still in there but another upset win would move them just three points from safety.

And Hoffenheim at home is one of the easier trips in the Bundesliga a the hosts have collected just nine points in front of their own fans - only two teams in the league have a worse record.

Leg 1: Over 2.5 goals

There's usually goals galore in Hoffenhaim games, with only two sides in the Bundesliga having more than their 16 games with over 2.5 goals in this season.

Their games average 3.8 goals per game, which is the second-most in the league, and at home seven of nine matches have had three or more goals in them.

So we'll just have to take the 4/71.57 on over 2.5 goals here.

Leg 2: 3+ Hoffenheim cards

Hoffenheim are right up there in terms of cards this season with 60 bookings and two reds, so we're focusing on them for a cards bet.

The hosts to have 3+ cards is 13/102.30 and that's not a bad price at all considering they've hit that number in their last four games.

Overall they've gone over it 14 times so that's more than enough evidence for us to back them.

Leg 3: Grischa Promel 2+ fouls

And if we fancy Hoffenheim to pick up a few cards then they'll obviously have to give away a few fouls along the way.

So we're heading straight to the top of the bad boy list in the Hoffenheim squad and Grischa Promal who leads the way with 29 fouls.

Promel has given away two fouls in three of his last four games and 4/71.57 says he does it again on Sunday.

Back over 2.5 goals, Hoffenheim 3+ cards & Promel 2+ fouls @ 5/16.00
