Germany international Kevin Volland has directly contributed to eight goals in the last ten games, already more than the seven he scored or assisted up to February 11. Andrej Kramaric, who joined on loan from Leicester City in January, has four goals in eight appearances, while Mark Uth has netted five times under Nagelsmann having managed just the one goal previously this season.
Hoffenheim are not yet out of danger and will hope to widen the three point gap between themselves and Werder Bremen in the relegation play-off spot on Sunday when they travel to Borussia Mönchengladbach, who experienced a revolution of their own under former youth coach Andre Schubert last season.
Nagelsmann’s men have won their previous two away games by two-goal margins, so although Gladbach’s home record is excellent, I think the +1 asian handicap at 1.79 looks tempting. Hoffenheim have kept just three Bundesliga clean sheets away from the Rhein-Neckar-Arena this campaign while Gladbach have only failed to score at home twice, so over +3.0, +3.5 goals at 1.96 also looks good.
With Nagelsmann describing his side’s performance against Hertha as one of the best he has seen since he took charge, there will likely be no let up as he attempts to guide his side to the top-half finish that was expected of them before the season began.
