Hoffenheim take on Bayern Munich in the Bundesliga.

Hoffenheim take on Bundesliga leaders Bayern Munich on Saturday looking to maintain their solid start to the new season.

The hosts have drawn three of their opening five games at home, although they are tough to beat in front of their own fans with just one defeat.

Bayern are starting to find their scoring touch with 12 goals in their last three in all competitions, but they have been behind in each of their last two league games.

The hosts have a number of players still out, including defenders Alexander Stolz and Matthias Jaissle, while Dante and Claudio Pizarro are unlikely to be available for Pep Guardiola.
