There will be a huge challenge in store for Hoffenheim this weekend, as they will welcome the European champions to town. But, will they be able to get anything out of this tricky fixture?
It doesn’t seem as though Bayern Munich have lost their momentum going into the 2019-20 season. Last season was a remarkable one for the club, as they ended the season by winning the treble. They kicked off their defence of the Bundesliga title last weekend with a home fixture against Schalke, and they produced a special display. Bayern ran out 8-0 winners in that fixture.
Serge Gnabry kicked off the new season with a hat-trick inside an hour, while there were also goals for Leon Goretzka, Robert Lewandowski, Thomas Muller, Leroy Sane and Jamal Musiala. Musiala’s goal saw him become the youngest scorer in Bayern’s history aged just 17 years and 205 days. It could be a huge season for the attacking midfielder, who was promoted to the first after impressing towards the end of last season.
Hoffenheim also got off to the best possible start in the Bundesliga, as they beat Köln on the opening day. It was a remarkable game between the two sides, as they were tied at 2-2 going into injury time. Köln equalised in the 86th minute through Dominick Drexler, before Hoffenheim snatched the win when Andrej Kramaric scored his hat-trick goal in the 92nd minute. Kramaric’s first two goals in the game both came in the first half. The target for Hoffenheim will remain the same as last season’s, and that will be another European finish. There will be pressure on Kramaric to score the goals, and he will now be hopeful of eclipsing the total of 12 that he scored in the league last season.
Hoffenheim vs Bayern Munich Head To Head
Bayern have won four of the past five meetings between the two sides. However, Hoffenheim did get joy against the title holders last season, as they beat Bayern in the fixture that was played at the Allianz. However, Bayern gained revenge in the second meeting as they secured a 6-0 win, with Serge Gnabry and Leon Goretzka among the scorers.
Hoffenheim vs Bayern Munich Prediction
