Hoffenheim boss Nagelsmann: Bayern win 'like a drug'

Runaway leaders Bayern Munich suffered only their second Bundesliga defeat of the season when they were beaten 1-0 at surprise package Hoffenheim on Tuesday.

After thumping Augsburg 6-0 on Saturday, Bayern are unbeaten in their last 20 games dating back to November, but play third-placed Hoffenheim then host arch-rivals Borussia Dortmund, who are fourth, on Saturday.

Hoffenheim boss Julian Nagelsmann has described the euphoric feeling of beating Bayern Munich as being "like a drug". "It showed us that we are so much better when we are alert and actively pressing on the pitch".

Kramaric's long-range strike midway through the first half proved enough for Hoffenheim to break their duck against the below-par champions at the 18th attempt.

While Muller is ruled out against Hoffenheim, Bayern will be able to recall Spanish duo Javi Martinez and Xabi Alonso to the side after they served their suspensions.

It is not a cause for panic, either: instead, it offers them an opportunity to persuade Guardiola of their merits. "We have to be cautious going forward because Manchester City are very unsafe on the counterattack", he added.

"I said before the game that I'd be satisfied with a draw". Kramaric picked up the ball centrally, just outside of the box, and wired a rocket of a shot past Bayern goalkeeper Thomas Ulreich, standing in for the injured Manuel Neuer, to give Hoffenheim their first-ever victory over the Bavarians in the Bundesliga. We only conceded one or two chances, which is in itself an incredible achievement against Bayern.

Hamburg 'keeper Rene Adler got the better of Aubameyang in a one-on-one early before Dortmund counterpart Roman Buerki did likewise to Bobby Wood at the other end.

Second-placed RB Leipzig can now trim Bayern's massive lead at Mainz on Wednesday.

Dortmund then wrapped up the victory with two goals in the last 10 minutes.

Bremen's remarkable form under new coach Alexander Nouri continued with its sixth win from seven games unbeaten, taking the side - which was previously bottom - to eighth place, six points clear of the relegation zone.
