Sports Mole provides live updates of the 2018-19 Bundesliga opener between champions Bayern Munich and last season's third-placed team Hoffenheim.

Good evening and welcome to Sports Mole's live text coverage of the opening match of the 2018-19 Bundesliga season as champions Bayern Munich host Hoffenheim at the Allianz Arena.

The home side begin their quest to continue their unprecedented run of dominance in the German top flight with a seventh successive title under new boss Niko Kovac, who has already scooped his first trophy as Bayern manager.

Hoffenheim, meanwhile, recorded their best-ever league finish last term by coming third, but begin their final season under manager Julian Nagelsmann, who has agreed to take charge of RB Leipzig next summer.
