Hoffenheim vs Bayern Munich Match Prediction

By William Hall

Bayern Munich didn't have many blemishes on their record last season, but they did fail to live up to expectations against Hoffenheim. On Saturday, they travel to Sinsheim to take on Hoffenheim in the prime time match of the weekend. Hoffenheim come off a 2-2 draw away to Bayer Leverkusen in their last match out before the break, while Bayern won 0-2 away to Werder Bremen. Below we have our betting tips, predictions, team news and match stats all in our SBAT preview.

Betting Tips and Predictions

Hoffenheim took four points off of Bayern last season, including a win in this fixture back in April of last season. However, that is the only win Hoffenheim have ever gotten against Bayern in a fairly extensive history. So will lightning strike twice? Not likely as Bayern are in good form, but after the international break, anything could happen. Still yet, Bayern look good to get it done.

Bayern to win with both sides registering a goal is at 8/5.

Marc Uth to score a goal at anytime is at 3/1.

Hoffenheim Preview

Many would assume a wounded Hoffenheim side would be hobbling into this match, but manager Julian Nagelsmann will not let that happen. After a tough elimination from the Champions League at the hands of Liverpool after a 4-2 loss at Anfield (6-3 on aggregate), they could only muster a draw away to Bayer Leverkusen by a score of 2-2 last time out. They started poorly in the first half, going in to the break a goal down thanks to a penalty from Wendell. They quickly righted the ship at half time and got a goal just two minutes in via Andrej Kramaric. However, Leverkusen scored just two minutes later to retake the load. The in-form Marc Uth, though, made it right with a 70th minute finish to ear a share of the spoils. However, it's far from time to panic at Hoffenheim as they are still a very capable, young team with lots of quality and a brilliant tactical set up.

Hoffenheim Team News

Serge Gnabry, currently on loan at Hoffenheim via Bayern Munich themselves, will be out for this match with injury. Joining him are center back Stefan Posch, left midfielder Steven Zuber, and forward Adam Szalai.

Bayern Munich Preview

Bayern Munich's start to the season has been exactly what you would expect from them. They hardly ever show a chink in their armor, and they have improved this off season by the looks of it, or at at the least weakened their rivals, by taking two key stars from Hoffenheim. They have two wins in the Bundesliga, as well as their DFB Pokal win. They are always in the semi-final of that, anyway. After winning 3-1 at home to Bayer Leverkusen on the opening weekend of the season, Bayern got a win before the break away to Werder Bremen by a score of 0-2. They controlled 65% of the possession, yet they struggled to break through. It finally came, though, through the usual man: Robert Lewandowski. The Polish international scored twice in the space of four minutes with goals in the 72nd and 75th minutes proving to be more than enough in the end.

Bayern Munich Team News

Bayern Munich once again have the bulk of their injuries toward the back. Left backs Juan Bernat and David Alaba seem to be continually injured for them, though Alaba could recover in time to play. Center back Jerome Boateng is also set to miss out. Goalkeeper Manuel Neuer missed Germany's qualifying matches, but will be fit to play for Bayern.
