Bayern Munich vs Hoffenheim
German Bundesliga 2016/17
Date: Saturday, 5th November 2016,
Kick-Off at 14:30 UK
Venue: Allianz Arena, Munich.
Bayern continue to dominate Bundesliga and sits at top of the league table with 23 points from their 9 matches. They are unbeaten as expected with 7 wins and 2 draws. The dropped points came against unlikely candidates – FC Koln and Eintracht Frankfurt. This is something which gives some confidence to a team like Hoffenheim, who are on a strong run this term.
Hoffenheim are third in the league table with 19 points from their 9 matches. They were fighting against relegation last season and this term under the rookie manager Julian Nagelsmann, it has been a quite different story.
Alongside Bayern Munich and RB Leipzig at first and second position in the league table, Hoffenheim are unbeaten in the league so far this season. They defeated a strong Hertha Berlin last week by a narrow 1-0 margin to register the fifth straight win in the league. Probably their best moment so far is the 3-0 thrashing of Bayer Leverkusen at their own backyard a fortnight ago.

Bayern Munich vs Hoffenheim: Prediction
Just 29-year old, Nagelsmann is the youngest coach in Bundesliga history. He is already drawing plaudits with some excellent attacking football that his team is displaying. Bayern Munich is certainly the biggest opposition he will face in Bundesliga and Nagelsmann has already made it clear that he is not setting out with a team to make up the numbers. His team might not win the clash, but will certainly entertain the crowd at large.
