The Bayern Munich vs. Hoffenheim match will be played on Friday, August 24, at the Allianz Arena, Munich. This is the opening game of Bundesliga 2018/19 season. Bayern Munich is the reigning champion, while Hoffenheim was great as well, and finished the season on the third place on the table.
In their previous ten meetings, Bayern Munich recorded six victories, Hoffenheim had two wins, while two matches ended in a draw. Bayern Munich defeated Hoffenheim only once in their last four games, so Hoffenheim is one of the rare German teams that enjoyed a bit of success against Bayern Munich in the last two years.
Bayern Munich is the absolute favorite to win the title in Germany again. They won six titles in a row, which is the biggest series in the history of German football. During the summer, Arturo Vidal departed for Barcelona, while Leon Goretzka came from Schalke for free, and he will be his replacement. Niko Kovac will have a strong team at his disposal and Bayern Munich shouldn't have any problem to start the new Bundesliga season with a victory.
