Hoffenheim Stun Table-Topping Bayern

Bundesliga 

Result: Hoffenheim 1-0 Bayern Munich

Date: 04 April 2017

Venue: Vicente Calderon

Bayern Munich were left stunned, after they suffered a 1-0 defeat to Hoffenheim at the WIRSOL Rhein-Neckar-Arena on Tuesday evening.

The Bundesliga champions were without the services of Manuel Neuer, who suffered an injury in training.

Hoffenheim started the game the brightest with Kerem Demirbay forcing goalkeeper, Sven Ulreich into a fine save after nine minutes.

The Bavarians were all over the place at the back and they seemed to have been unsettled by the early wave of attack from Hoffenheim.

Andrej Kramaric opened the scoring for Hoffenheim after 21 minutes, as the former Leicester City striker skipped past two challenges, before rifling the ball past Ulreich.

Carlo Ancelotti's could not establish any rhythm in the game as every time they surged forward they left themselves exposed at the back.

In the 40th minute Demirbay nearly doubled the lead with a powerful shot from the left channel but Ulreich made an equally good save to keep the scoreline at 1-0.

The match went into the half-time break with Hoffenheim leading by 1-0.

Bayern started the second-half with positive energy as they were looking to comeback into the game.

Xabi Alonso had a chance in the 51st minute to level the score but his shot went over the bar from the edge of the box.

Robert Lewandowski could not cap off a great attacking move after being pressured to shoot inside the box narrowly missing at the far post after the hour-mark.

Bayern continued to push for an equaliser and went close in the 74th minute when Mats Hummels had his header cleared off the line by Sebastian Ruby.

The Bundesliga leaders threw everything forward in the closing stages of the second half, but the host managed to hold on for an impressive three points.
