Bayern fresh from their Super Cup triumph over Sevilla in Budapest were surprisingly thumped by their hosts.
Sunday’s loss-the first since December 2019 effectively ended Bayern Munich’s 32-match unbeaten run across all competitions.
It also halted the Bavarian’s run of 14 consecutive Bundesliga wins.
The signs of what would befall Bayern at the Prezero Arena were evident when Hoffenheim raced to a two-goal lead inside the first 25 minutes with Ermin Bicakcic and Munas Dabbur giving the home side the lead.’
Bayern Munich gave a false impression they would not go down without a fight when Joshua Kimmich pulled one back for them.
However, that was all Bayern could do in Sunday’s outing as Hoffenheim replied with two more second-half goals in the 77th and 90th minutes.
