Hoffenheim Sneak Past Chiefs

Club Friendly
 
Score: Kaizer Chiefs 0-1 Hoffenheim 
 
Date: 16 January 2015
 
Venue: FNB Stadium
 
Anthony Modeste's 71st minute strike was enough to earn Hoffenheim a 1-0 win over Kaizer Chiefs in their mid-season friendly at the FNB Stadium.
 
Adam Szalai had the Germans' first effort of the game in the 13th minute, the striker showed great strength before firing an effort against the upright.
 
Hoffenheim continued to dominate as the first half went on, as Kevin Volland and Firmino saw a lot of the ball and caused a few problems in the final third.
 
Chiefs started seeing a bit more of the ball after the 30 minute-mark, although they did have the edge over Hoffenheim when it came to set-pieces.
 
The home side rarely tested Oliver Baumann, despite finishing the the first half with a lot of possession.
 
The second half got off to a slow star, as both sides made numerous changes at start of the second stanza.
 
However, Hoffenheim took the lead in the 71st minute minute courtesy of a well-taken volley from substitute, Anthony Modeste.
 
Doctor Khumalo brought on the likes of Siyabonga Nkosi, Ovidy Karuru and Katlego Mphela in the closing stages but Chiefs could not bypass the Hoffenheim defence.
 
Here's how they lined up:
 
Kaizer Chiefs: Khune, Gaxa, Gould, Mashamaite, Mtsweni, Rusike, Bukenya, Maluleka, Lebese, Tshabalala, Mthembu
 
Hoffenheim: Baumann, Beck, Strobl, Bicakcic, Abraham, Schwegler, Polanski, Volland, Firmino, Elyounoussi, Szalai
