Bayern Munchen -900

Bayern Munich will host Hoffenheim in this Saturday’s Bundesliga action. Bayern are going into Saturday’s game as the Bundesliga’s top goal-scorers with 19 Bundesliga goals so far this season. They will face a Hoffenheim side who are currently the lowest goal-scorers in the Bundesliga, with just 4 goals.

On paper, based on current form, this game appears to be a mismatch. Facing Bayern Munich is always a frightening prospect for most sides. The task is made no easier for Hoffenheim considering that Bayern are currently enjoying a spell of excellent form. 

Bayern have won 13 of their last 14 home Bundesliga matches. Meanwhile, Hoffenheim will go into Saturday’s game having failed to win in 9 of their last 10 Bundesliga games. Hoffenheim have managed to secure 1 win all season. Their opponents this weekend are yet to taste defeat in the Bundesliga this season. 

Lucas Hernández went off feeling his knee last week in Paderborn, while David Alaba had to go off against Spurs with sore ribs meaning he had difficulty breathing. Both are unlikely to be rushed back.

Thomas Müller languished on the bench for 90 minutes against Spurs and will surely start with the likes of Philippe Coutinho and Kingsley Coman all candidates to be rested bearing in mind the recent busy schedule.

Bayern Munich is ranked on the 1st place in the standings with 82 points, 89 goals scored and 22 goals received in the last 34 leagueevents.

TSG Hoffenheim +2500

Hoffenheim come into this match without a league win in four games and with one success this season (D2, L3). Four of those games saw them fail to net and their three losses saw them lose ‘to nil’ and already down at half-time.

After registering a league-high seven away draws last campaign, Hoffenheim are at it again this season, with their last two trips ending all square. Their only away Bundesliga goal marked the only time this season where they’ve taken the lead, while all three goals seen in their away games arrived in the first half.

Hoffenheim are ranked on the 4th place in the standings with 62 points, 64 goals scored and 37 goals received this season in Bundesliga.In their last match they draw against Augsburg. Hoffenheim lost only one match from the previous 5 played before this game with Bayern Munich.

Ishak Belfodil has tonsillitis and will not travel to the Bavarian capital. Ihlas Bebou is set to fill in up front, as Croatia striker Andrej Kramaric is still not yet ready for a comeback from a knee injury.

Steven Zuber is definitely out following an operation on his right foot, while record signing Diadie Samassékou is still struggling to shake off a thigh injury suffered while on international duty with Mali.
