Hoffenheim vs Bayern Munich

Bayern Munich on-loan attacker James Rodriguez is in line for his first competitive appearance for the Bavarian giants. The Colombian lasted the whole 90 minutes for his country in a World Cup qualifier against Brazil on Tuesday. Hoffenheim are still trying to shake off the bitter disappointment of missing out on the Champions League, and it has shown in their wobbly start, where they scraped to a 1-0 win over Werder Bremen, and needed a late goal to draw 2-2 with Leverkusen. Hoffenheim beat Bayern 1-0 here last season and then escaped with a 1-1 draw from Allianz Arena. Hoffenheim were the only team Bayern failed to beat in the Bundesliga last season. and this encounter has been spiced by the return of Niklaus Sule and Sebastian Rudy, who left for Bayern in the summer.

Mark Uth scored twice as Hoffenheim inflicted a first Bundesliga defeat on Bayern Munich since April.

Uth, who scored against Liverpool in their Champions League play-off last month, fired in the opener after Bayern were caught out by a quick throw.

The striker then added a second with a neat finish from inside the area.

The defeat was Bayern's first this season and first in the league for five months, when they also lost to Hoffenheim.

It was an especially disappointing outcome for Bayern forward Thomas Muller, who was making his 400th appearance for the German champions.
