TSG Hoffenheim 1-0 Bayern Munich

07 April 2017

Hoffenheim secured their first win over Bayern Munich on Tuesday, as Andrej Kramaric's goal secured a deserved 1-0 triumph over the Bundesliga leaders at the Rhein-Neckar-Arena.

Bayern Munich suffered their second Bundesliga loss of the season against Hoffenheim and Ancelotti believes they were caught unawares by the club.

Following the Hoffenheim goal, Bayern Munich responded strongly with a number of chances against Hoffenheim goalkeeper Oliver Baumann.

Hoffenheim have taken four points off Bayern, having left the Allianz Arena with a 1-1 draw earlier in the campaign, and Nagelsmann compared their success to a recreational activity of which he was quick to point out he has no first-hand experience.

Second-placed RB Leipzig can now cut Bayern's lead at Mainz on Wednesday.

Lugo has announced a more proactive approach with his injury, and on Tuesday had a platelet-rich plasma injection in his elbow. And in Monday's season opener, Noah Syndergaard left his start after six innings because of a blister on his middle finger.

Kramaric's long-range strike midway through the first half proved enough for Hoffenheim to break their duck against the below-par champions at the 18th attempt. We did a much better job in the second half, we were more aggressive then.

With Neuer sidelined after foot surgery, Bayern's stand-in goalkeeper Sven Ulreich will face a Hoffenheim attack led by Sandro Wagner, who will play despite dislocating a finger in Friday's 3-1 win at Hertha Berlin.

Dortmund stayed fourth in the Champions League playoff place, a point behind Hoffenheim, while Hamburg - which was struggling with injuries - remained just a point above the relegation zone.

Dortmund gained momentum in the closing period and rounded off the game with a third goal when Aubameyang utilized Kagawa's through ball to round Hamburg goalie Rene Adler for the 25th goal of the season.

Jojic scored his second goal in two games after picking up David Abraham's header outside the box before driving a shot past Lukas Hradecky and into the net via a post eight minutes into the second half.
