Our prediction for this Bundesliga match:
Bayern Munich will look to retain top position in the standings when they take on Hoffenheim at PreZero Arena on Saturday. The reigning champions dropped two points in a 1-1 draw with Bayer Leverkusen, but they are still on the right track to defend their trophy. Manuel Neuer has overcome his injury, while both Leon Goretzka and Corentin Tolisso remain in the recovery room. Alphonso Davies is out of contention through heart problems.
Hoffenheim, on the other hand, proved their worth in a hard-fought 1-0 win over Koln. Die Kraichgauer are on a four-game winning run in the Bundesliga, and given Bayern’s anything but brilliant form, we predict that the hosts are going to grab something from the match. All Rudy, Nordtveit, Geiger, Skov, Bicakcic, and Gacinovic should miss out with injuries for the home team, while Benjamin Hubner is a major doubt following his recent positive test for COVID-19.
Highlighted Player (Pavel Kaderabek):
Pavel Kaderabek is a Czech Republic defender born on 25 April 1992, who has enjoyed a bright start to his professional career. Coming through the youth ranks at Sparta Prague and gaining some first team experience during a loan spell with Viktoria Zizkov, the right-sided defender was finally able to show what he is capable of during the 2012/2013 season and he didn’t need a lot of time to make the next step in his career.
After scoring impressive 10 goals in 76 league appearances for Sparta Prague, Kaderabek joined Bundesliga side Hoffenheim in the summer of 2015, shortly after he had established himself as a starting right-back in the Czech Republic national team.
The talented footballer helped Repre make it to the Euro 2016 finals by starting 9 qualifying matches, once again proving his killer instinct by scoring two goals. Pavel Kaderabek looks set to become one of leading players of the new generation and a big club move may not be far away either.
Highlighted Team (Bayern Munich):
Over the years Bayern Munich have established themselves as one of the most successful European clubs. The Stern des Sudens (Star of the South) are the dominant force in German football and it has to be noted that the Bavarians clinched their 26th Bundesliga title in 2016. Bayern Munich have won 18 German Cup trophies, while winning the Champions League (European Cup) five times.
The German giants clinched the Intercontinental Cup in 1976 and 2001, while lifting the FIFA Club World Cup trophy in 2013. Bayern Munich was founded in 1900 by eleven football players and their leader was Franz John. The Bavarians host their rivals at Allianz Arena (75,000), the stadium that was built in 2005.
Fellow Bavarian sides TSV 1860 Munchen 1860 and Nurnberg are regarded as Bayern Munich’s fiercest rivals, but the rivalry between Borussia Dortmund and Bayern is big as well. The likes of Karl-Heinz Rummenigge, Franz Beckenbauer, Lothar Matthaus, Oliver Kahn, Gerd Muller and Giovane Elber are famous footballers who played for Bayern Munich in the past.
