Bayern Munich vs Hoffenheim
Germany – Bundesliga
Date: Saturday, 30 January 2021
Kick-off at 14:30 UK/ 15:30 CET
Venue: Allianz Arena.
The Bavarians have been continuing their dominant run without any mercy over whichever teams that had the misfortune to have been pitted against them. As of now they are placed at the top of the table, and have a lead of seven points as well.
Note that they are on course to an astonishing ninth straight league title, and in the process have scored a total of 53 goals so far. No other squad has even breached the 35-goal mark yet.
They are also at home, and have a phenomenal record there, and most importantly, they have a score to settle this weekend.
In the reverse fixture, Hans-Dieter Flick’s men were defeated by this same opponent – which happened to be one rare loss for the reigning champions.
By all means, the title-holders are desperate to set the record straight, and inflict a painful loss on Die Kraichgauer.
Moreover, the toppers also have a superb h2h record against this rival over the years too.
Likely, expect a convincing Bayern Munich win this Saturday.

Going on, Flick’s men are on a three-game winning run, and were unbeaten in 24 of their preceding 25 fixtures. They have also scored two or more goals in 21 of their preceding 25 games, and are on a four-match winning run at home.
They also have a 100% winning record at home in the whole of 2020 and 2021 barring two draws, and the last they lost here was back in 2019.
On the other hand, their counterparts were winless in six of their last nine overall match-ups, and they remained so in seven of their past eleven road trips.
Finally, the title-holders also have a great h2h record against this rival over the years, and have scored in plenty in the process.
