How to bring down this Kolossal Bayern? There are teams that have tried and they have had problems. But the Hoffenheim team had to try their luck at home this Sunday on behalf of the second day of the Bundesliga. Kramaric’s teammates started their challenge quite well. The premises found the fault for the first time against the formidable Manuel Neuer on a corner quarter of an hour into the game, when Bicakcic slightly deflected the leather of the skull towards the second post. Zirkzee, who tried to save the goal, accompanied the ball to the back. 1-0. Then soon 2-0.
An intervention by Payard following a long clearance from the opposing goalkeeper finally reached Dabbur, whose small stung ball gave Neueur no chance. 2-0, we were only playing in the 24th minute and Bayern already seemed to be sinking. The defending champion also almost hit bottom with a strike from Kramaric on which the Munich goalkeeper had to work at the half-hour mark. Six minutes later, the Bavarian ogre finally reacted. The spark would come, as often, from Thomas Muller, whose service in withdrawal fed Kimmich in the opposing rectangle. The heavy strike of the latter allowed the visitors to reduce the score. 2-1, the score at rest.

The TSG’s counters got the better of the Bavarians’ defensive wanderings in the first act. And the locals were keen to continue on the same pattern in second. Dabbur also called on Neuer with a slip shot following a free kick early in the second half. But it was Kramaric who would weigh down the score for Hoffenheim with 13 minutes remaining. A volley after a lobed ball signed Bebou, which would again deceive Neuer. Kramaric would aggravate the score from the penalty spot at the very end of the game and the defending champion falls heavily against TSG (4-1). Bayern say goodbye to their streak of 10 away Bundesliga wins, averaging 3 goals per game. As a reminder, since a 0-0 against RB Leipzig last February, the European champion had aligned a total of 24 successes in a row. From ancient history now.
