Hoffenheim vs Bayern Munich

, KO: 14:30 May 18, 2024, PreZero Arena
Bayern Munich

HOFFENHEIM will look to secure a European finish as they host Bayern Munich in their final Bundesliga fixture on Saturday. Both teams have been unconvincing at the back and given their quality in attack, goals could be expected here.

Hoffenheim are currently in the final European spot and will be looking to fend off Freiburg, who are just one point behind. They picked up a 6-0 victory at Darmstadt in their previous Bundesliga fixture with Maximillian Beier and Ihlas Bebou each netting a brace.

Manager Pellegrino Matarazzo will be pleased with the result as it highlights the depth of Hoffenheim’s attacking quality. It was also their best defensive showing this season as that was their first clean sheet since September.

It has been a disappointing campaign for Bayern Munich, who are set to end the season without a single piece of silverware. Saturday’s clash is also Thomas Tuchel’s final fixture in charge and the manager will be keen to end things on a high.

Like Hoffenheim, Bayern Munich were victorious last time out in the Bundesliga as they triumphed 2-0 over Wolfsburg. The Bavarians have also struggled defensively as that was their first clean sheet in the last five matches across all competitions.
