Bayern Munich welcome TSG 1899 Hoffenheim to the Allianz Arena fresh off demolishing Tottenham Hotspur 2-7 in the Champions League. Robert Lewandowski scored a brace in that one, while Serge Gnabry hit four past his erstwhile North London neighbours.
Hoffenheim on the other hand, are having a dreadful Bundesliga season, as they lie in 12th place so far with just a single win from six games. Die Kraichgauer still appear to be adjusting to life after Julian Nagelsmann.
This is a game of stark contrasts; Die Roten have scored 19 goals so far this season, while the visitors have shipped 10 already.
Alfred Schreuder and his charges will indeed be wary of the trip to Bavaria, as Bayern have reigned supreme over Hoffenheim in every encounter at the Allianz Arena. They have won nine of the 11 encounters played at the famous ground, and scored 35 goals in the same period.
Die Kraichgauer meanwhile, have only managed to breach Bayern's defence nine times at the Allianz Arena.
