LIVE: Hoffenheim vs Bayern Munich

After beating Bayern 2-1 at the Allianz Arena last October, Hoffeinheim could complete the league double over Bayern for the first time here. They’d be the first Bundesliga side to do it since Gladbach and Dortmund in 2011/12. The hosts have been a bogey side for Bayern of late, beating the champions in three of their last six league meetings. Can Hoffenheim arrest their recent poor spell?

There’s only one enforced change to Hoffenheim’s team from their 1-1 draw away to Monchengladbach last time out. Moanes Dabbur is out injured so Bebou takes his place up front. Nordtveit becomes the fourth Norwegian to reach 200 Bundesliga games. Bayern make two changes from their 3-0 victory over Chelsea midweek. The Netherlands U19 striker Zirkzee replaces the injured Lewandowski. Coutinho starts ahead of Coman on the flank.

SUBS: Alvaro Odriozola, Michael Cuisance, Lucas Hernandez, Javi Martinez, Corentin Tolisso, Leon Goretzka, Sven Ulreich, Oliver Batista Meier.

BAYERN MUNICH (4-2-3-1): Manuel Neuer (c); Benjamin Pavard, Jerome Boateng, David Alaba, Alphonso Davies; Joshua Kimmich, Thiago; Serge Gnabry, Thomas Muller, Philippe Coutinho; Joshua Zirkzee.

SUBS: Pavel Kaderabek, Kevin Akpoguma, Philipp Pentke, Andrej Kramaric, Maximilian Beier, Ermin Bicakcic, Stefan Posch, Lucas Ribeiro.

HOFFENHEIM (4-2-3-1): Oliver Baumann; Sebastian Rudy, Havard Nordtveit, Benjamin Hubner (c), Steven Zuber; Florian Grillitsch, Diadie Samassekou; Robert Skov, Christoph Baumgartner, Jacob Bruun Larsen; Ihlas Bebou.

Bayern’s hosts here are Hoffenheim, whose form has taken a bit of a slump in recent weeks, narrowly losing three of their last four outings. After these sides played out a riproaring 4-3 in the DFB-Pokal a few weeks ago, we may well be in for another cracker.

Bayern’s excellent form in 2020 has helped them regain top spot in the Bundesliga and all but ensure qualification to the Champions League last eight. With Leipzig and Dortmund still lurking behind, Hans-Dieter Flick’s men need to keep their fine form up.
