Bayern Munich welcome Hoffenheim this weekend in what has proven to be a tricky fixture for the Bavarians in recent past. Watch the Bundesliga live in India!
Sitting seven-points clear at the top of the Bundesliga 2020-21 points table, reigning champions Bayern Munich host 11th-placed Hoffenheim at the Allianz Arena in matchweek 19.
Though there is a good 20-point difference between the two teams, Hansi Flick's Bayern will be cautious heading into the match considering Hoffenheim inflicted one of their only two defeats this season during the reverse leg in matchweek 2.
Hoffenheim stunned Bayern 4-1 in that match and will look to upset the champions again this weekend. Watch Bayern Munich vs Hoffenheim and other Bundesliga matchweek 19 fixtures live in India.
