Julian Nagelsmann’s men will have the hardest test on Saturday as they welcome the mighty Bavarians. In the domestic league, Hoffenheim are unbeaten with four points earned so far. They bested SV Werder Bremen in the opening round but drew Leverkusen at BayArena.
The home side will have European obligations next week. They are facing Sporting Braga on Thursday in the opening match of UEFA Europa League group stage.

TSG Hoffenheim vs Bayern Munich: Head-to-head
Hoffenheim snatched the 1-1 draw at Allianz Arena last season while beating the Bavarians 1-0 in Sinsheim. Bayern will be aiming to prove they are the greatest team in Germany, so this match is justifiably considered a derby.
TSG Hoffenheim vs Bayern Munich: Prediction
Both Nagelsmann and Ancelotti might rotate ahead of the obligations in UEFA competitions. However, the Bavarians have insane squad depth especially compared to Hoffenheim’s relatively small side. It will be interesting to see how the 30-year-old genius will adapt his squad when playing in three major competitions. Both sides prefer the attacking approach, so we are likely to witness a thrilling and exciting match with several goals on the both sides.
