Our football match prediction:
All eyes will be on Stadion im Borussia-Park when Bayern Munich and Hoffenheim face each other in a friendly game. The mighty Bavarians rolled over amateurs Erlangen-Bruck in their first warm-up game of the pre-season and they will be looking to build on the triumph when they square off against Hoffenheim. Coach Carlo Ancelotti mixed the squad against the lower-league club, but the Italian tactician is likely to field a very strong side against Hoffenheim. Kingsley Coman scored a brace in the 9-1 win over Erlangen-Bruck, meaning that the opposition defenders should have him at bay. Hoffenheim, on the other hand, recorded a 4-2 win over Standard Liege in Saturday’s football match, but they are unlikely to upset the Bundesliga champions at Stadion im Borussia-Park. The Bavarians are eager to prove their worth and we predict that Carlo Ancelotti’s men are going to give fans yet another reason for celebration.
