Hoffenheim vs Bayern Munich Match Preview
Bayern Munich manager Niko Kovac thinks his side are back to their best – and they will need to show exactly that when the Bundesliga resumes at Hoffenheim after the winter break.
FC Hollywood are in serious danger of losing the German league crown they have held since 2013 because at the halfway stage of the season, they trail Borussia Dortmund by six points.
However, Bayern went into Christmas having won their last five Bundesliga games by a 13-1 aggregate and Kovac, who took charge last summer, said:
“We’ve got our fluency and confidence back. The lads will do everything to give Dortmund a brutal fight for the title.”
Kovac took his squad to Qatar for a warm-weather training camp but looks set be without Franck Ribery for this game after he suffered a thigh injury.
Hoffenheim are seventh in the table after turning into draw specialists with all of their last six Bundesliga fixtures having ended all-square, four of them 1-1, as coach Julian Nagelsmann enters his last half-season at the helm before taking over at RB Leipzig in the summer.
Although Bayern have lost to nil on their last two visits to this venue, we are happy to take Kovac at his word about his team’s form and back Bayern to gain a comfortable success.
