Reigning Bundesliga champions Bayern Munich begin their 2018/19 league campaign against Hoffenheim at the Allianz Arena – here is how the two teams will line up.
Teams: Bayern Munich vs Hoffenheim
Date: 24 August 2018
Venue: Allianz Arena
New manager Niko Kovac got his Bayern tenure off to a winning start when the Bavarians thrashed his former team Eintracht Frankfurt in the German Super Cup in May, and they followed that up with a narrow win over Drochtersen/Assel in the first round of the DFB-Pokal.
Hoffenheim, who ended third last season, are entering their final campaign under the leadership of Julian Nagelsmann before the highly-rated young coach takes over at RB Leipzig next summer.
The German giants have a good track record against Hoffenheim, having won nine of their past 11 home matches across all competitions against their opponents.
Nagelsmann's men have lost only one of their past 11 games in the Bundesliga, and will be hoping they can continue building on that statistic.
Here's how they line up:
Bayern Munich: Neuer, Kimmich, Sule, Boateng, Alaba, Martinez, Thiago, Coman, Ribery, Muller, Lewandowski.
Hoffenheim: Baumann, Kaderabek, Bicakcic, Grillitsch, Bittencourt, Adams, Schulz, Vogt, Szalai, Grifo, Joelinton.
