It’s BundesligThe 56th Bundesliga season gets underway this Friday, with Bayern Munich v Hoffenheim at the Allianz Arena. The home team wants to start the new season with a win, and we believe they this is definitely going to happen.
Our Tips and Predictions For This Game:
Bayern Munich is obviously the firm favourite in this match even though Hoffenheim finished last season in third place. Last season, Bayern Munich trashed Hoffenheim at home 5-2 and we reckon we could see similar results again this time. 888sport offers 2.43 odds for Bayern Munich to win by three or more goals difference, which we believe is a real value bet.
Bayern Munich started this season with a stunning 5-0 win in the German Super Cup over Eintracht Frankfurt. After that game, they trashed HSV 4-1 in a friendly game, but played pretty badly in the German Cup first round against amateur side Drochsten/Assel and won by just one goal – scored by Robert Lewandowski. Bayern Munich retained all of its key players from last season and are likely to become German champions for the sixth time in a row. However, David Alaba and James Rodriguez are doubtful for this game.
Hoffenheim played fantastic last season and managed to finish third in the Bundesliga. This year they are going to try and repeat that success, but in the first round, they will have a lot of top player absences. Some key players, such as Kerim Demirbay, Andrej Kramaric, Nadiem Amiri, Dennis Geiger and Lukas Rupp will miss the game. Also, they conceded 32 goals in the last 10 games away to Bayern Munich.
