Bayer 04 Leverkusen v TSG Hoffenheim - Bundesliga
TSG Hoffenheim will host Augsburg on Saturday - Bundesliga

Hoffenheim will host Augsburg at the PreZero Arena on Saturday night in the fourth gameweek of the German Bundesliga.

The home side kicked off their league campaign with a 3-1 defeat to Borussia Dortmund. They, however, bounced back from that and picked up a clinical 3-0 win over struggling Bayer Leverkusen in their next outing.

Hoffenheim have picked up six points from a maximum of nine and sit sixth in the league table. They will look to pick up a third consecutive league win when they play on Saturday.

Augsburg, meanwhile, have had mixed results this season. They were beaten 2-1 by Mainz last time out. They looked set to come away with a point after Rafal Gikiewicz's second-half penalty save before their opponents scored a late winner.

The visitors are tenth in the Bundesliga standings with three points from as many games. They will now look to return to winning ways this weekend.
