After Humping up to second on the Bundesliga table, and after going three matches without defeat, the champions Bayern Munich will be looking to regain their domestic consistency when they travel to the Rhein-Neckar Arena to face fourth-placed Hoffenheim on Saturday at 14:30 GMT. 

Match Preview

Can Hoffenheim Hold on to their Top-Four Position with a Win?

In the opening ten outings, Hoffenheim have competed well in the Bundesliga. Their current 4th position on the table underscores their stellar start to the season.

André Breitenreiter will be looking to maintain their current form as they welcome the champions Bayern Munich on Saturday. The focus will be a high-energy and high-tempo performance designed to frustrate Bayern Munich and make it hard for them to have their way in this clash.

Hoffenheim will also focus on their defensive shape as the focus will be on denying the Bayern attackers any space to exploit behind the defense with their pace.

Can Bayern Inch Closer to the Bundesliga Summit with a Victory?

Julian Nagelsmann will be hoping that Bayern have over their inconsistent patch this season as he looks to press home their dominance in the Bundesliga ahead of the break for the World Cup in November.

The inconsistent start to the season has meant that Bayern have not set the pace at the top of the league as they customarily do, as they look to win their 11th consecutive Bundesliga title.
