manchester-city vs hoffenheim Head to Head:

The 2-1 win for Manchester City in Germany earlier this season was the first ever meeting between them and Hoffenheim.

manchester-city vs hoffenheim Tip Reason:

Manchester City defeated Hoffenheim 2-1 away in Germany on MD2 of the 2018-19 UEFA Champions League. In this game, the first two shots on target were scored within the opening seven minutes (Ishak Belfodil for Hoffenheim & Sergio Aguero for Man City), before David Silva scored in the 87th minute with the final shot on target in the match. Manchester City are unbeaten in their last six Champions League games against German opponents (W5 D1) since a 0-1 defeat to Bayern Munich in September 2014 – current Man City boss Pep Guardiola was in charge of Bayern that day. Hoffenheim have played away from home against English opposition just once before; they lost 2-4 to Liverpool in the playoffs of the 2017-18 edition of the competition, being eliminated in the process. After going 12 games without a loss at the Etihad in the Champions League (W9 D3), Manchester City have lost three of their last four there – though they did beat Shakhtar Donetsk 6-0 in their most recent such game. If Hoffenheim fail to beat Manchester City they will become the first to team finish bottom of their group despite scoring 10 or more goals since Olympiakos in 2002-03 (11 goals), and just the third side overall (also Monaco in 2000-01; 13 goals). Pep Guardiola is looking to lead his side to first place in the group stages for the ninth time in 10 seasons in the Champions League, only previously failing to do so in his first season with Manchester City (2nd in 2016-17). This will be Manchester City boss Pep Guardiola’s eighth competitive meeting against Hoffenheim as a manager. He’s yet to suffer a single defeat against them (W6 D1 L0), with six of those games coming in the Bundesliga while he was manager of Bayern Munich. Manchester City’s Riyad Mahrez has assisted more goals (four) than any other player in the Champions League this season, setting up a teammate once every 75 minutes. Hoffenheim’s Reiss Nelson could become the first Englishman to score against an English side in the Champions League for a non-British side, and the first do so for a non-English side since Patrick Roberts against Manchester City in December 2016. There have already been 42 goals scored in this group so far; the most for any group in Champions League history is 51: Group F in 2016-17.
