Bavarians scored at least once in all those matches.
Bayern Munich is reigning champion for six years and they are starting new campaign at home where they’ll host Hoffenheim. Bavarians were absolutely dominant side in last season. In the end they collected nineteen points more than runners-up. At the end of the season seventy-three years old manager, Jupp Heynckes left the club to start new carrier as retiree. He didn’t manage to win both league and German Cup and that left bitter taste in his mouth. His replacement is perspective Niko Kovac who defeated Bayern in Cup finals as coach of Eintracht Frankfurt. Twelve days before start of Bundesliga season 2018-19 he defeated his ex club in German Super Cup. In last four games Bayern recorded four victories. Niko Kovac was famous for bringing many players during transfer windows but in Bayern he didn’t do so. The most expensive new player is young Canadian left winger, Alphonso Davies and Bavarians paid for him 10 M €. Leon Goretzka also joined the club as free agent. After two seasons Arturo Vidal left Bayern and the most lucrative deal was selling Douglas Costa to Juventus for 40 M €. Bayern is always favorite and we do not doubt that they will try their best to defeat Hoffenheim in first round.
Hoffenheim recorded the best result in their history when they finished season 2017/18 in third place. The main reason for huge success lies in fact that they had second best home performance. Hoffenheim was maybe too early eliminated from German Cup and after series of bad results in Europa League they paid full attention on national championship. One man stands behind Hoffenheim’s good results and his name is Julian Nagelsmann who is head coach since February 2016. His football philosophy is simple. Put as many as possible attackers but pay close attention to defense and so 4-3-3 formation was chosen. In last season they achieved best results when they played 3-4-3. Hoffenheim really do not know how to defend properly and their worst results came after they opted for 5-3-2. Because of that, they bought one of the best defenders in Swiss league, Kasim Adams. FC Koln’s Leonardo Bittencourt also joined club from Sinsheim. First game is tough by itself but against Bayern it will be even harder. Good side is that Bavarians also lack match practice and Hoffenheim has best opportunity to surprise them if they are brave enough to attack them from the very start.
