The Bundesliga is BACK!! (again)

Finally, the international break is over. Bayern Munich returns to Bundesliga action with an away game against Julian Nagelsmann’s Hoffenheim. The record champions will be looking to maintain an unbeaten start to the season which has seen them dispatch both Bayer Leverkusen and Werder Bremen with relative ease.

Hoffenheim are sturdy opponents. Last season, they took four out of a possible six points off the Bavarians, managing a very entertaining 1-1 draw in Munich and a confident win in thier own stadium. That Hoffenheim however was a very different team. Since then, they have lost both Sebastian Rudy and Niklas Sule to yours truly, making the current tie much more lopsided. Serge Gnabry went in the other direction, but he is expected to be sidelined for the upcoming encounter.

While Bayern coach Carlo Ancelotti may have his injury headaches to figure out - both David Alaba and Juan Bernat remain injured, and Boateng and James Rodriguez remain doubtful - he still has a strong advantage over his counterpart. The Bavarians always go into these ties as favorites, but with football, you never know.

It’s Bayern time.
