1899 Hoffenheim shock Bayern Munich with 4-1 victory

By Valentine Amanze

Bayern Munich could not imagine what struck them as 1899 Hoffenheim humbled the Champions League champions with 4-1 victory at Hoffenheim on Sunday.

The loss was Bayern Munich’s first defeat since December 2019.
Bayern had won their past 23 matches, and were unbeaten in 32, a run that saw them win last season's treble and the Uefa Super Cup on Thursday.

Ermin Bicakcic headed the hosts ahead and Munas Dabbur made it 2-0, before Joshua Kimmich's goal for Bayern.

But Andrej Kramaric scored twice, including an injury-time penalty, to seal a famous Hoffenheim win, BBC reports.

The hosts are managed by Sebastian Hoeness, who was Bayern's youth coach last season.

Champions Bayern, who brought on Robert Lewandowski in the second half after starting him on the bench, had beaten Schalke 8-0 in their opening Bundesliga game.
