The Bundesliga is back, and Bayern Munich are about to take on, in fact host, southern neighbours Hoffenheim in the last match of the Hinrunde. Bayern are without key players like Kim Min-jae who is at the Asian Cup with South Korea and Noussair Mazraoui is at AFCON with Morocco. Will that be enough for Bayern to have a bad day? Well, that’s what opposing attacker Andrej Kramarić hopes for:
Andrej Kramarić on facing Bayern today: It’s Bayern Munich, one of the best teams in Europe. It’s going to be a very intense and difficult game. Of course, it’s hard to say in which condition they will find themselves because we’ve all had almost two weeks. I hope that they will not have their best day, because if you want to beat Bayern, especially away, then we have to have our best day and they [need to be off it]. We will see. I will give my best. I also hope my team will be ready mentally for the game; anything is possible.

Bayern have a depleted squad and they did sign Eric Dier from Tottenham Hotspur, but it should be enough to see off the Sinsheim-based club.
