Bayern Munich vs. Hoffenheim Preview & Prediction
Bayern continues to dominate the Bundesliga and sits at first place with 23 points with nine matches played. They are undefeated as expected with seven wins and two draws. The ties came in two games against FC Koln and Eintracht Frankfurt. This is something that gives confidence to a team like Hoffenheim, who are currently on a strong run this season.
Hoffenheim is in third place in the Bundesliga league table with 19 points in nine games played. They were fighting for survival last season, and this season under Julian Nagelsmann, it has been a different story.
With Bayern Munich and RB Leipzig sitting at first and second position in the Bundesliga table, Hoffenheim is also unbeaten in the Bundesliga this season. They defeated a strong side in Hertha Berlin last week with a narrow 1-0 victory to register their fifth straight victory in the Bundesliga. Probably their best moment this season was a 3-0 win over Bayer Leverkusen in their backyard.
Prediction: At 29-year old, Nagelsmann is the youngest coach that the Bundesliga has ever seen. He is already drawing interest with an excellent attack game that Hoffenheim is displaying. Bayern Munich is certainly the biggest threat he will face in Bundesliga and Nagelsmann has already made a statement that he is not afraid of any team in the Bundesliga. Hoffenheim might not win this game but will certainly entertain fans this Saturday afternoon.
