Manchester City will be looking to get back to winning ways when they meet Hoffenheim in a Champions League fixture on Wednesday night. They lost the top spot on Premier League with 2-0 loss at the hands of Chelsea on Saturday, their first loss in the Premier League since April.
Pep Guardiola’s men are sitting at the head of the Group F and would come out to consolidate their position at the top. If they can avoid defeat at home to Hoffenheim, they will top the table.
Hoffenheim, on the other hand, have struggled on their first Champions League campaign. After five completed rounds, they have drawn three and lost two games to reel at the bottom of the table. With nothing to lose, they would try everything to spoil Manchester City’s party.
