Last Sunday, the striker from Bayern Munich, Mario Gomez brought his team a highly desired 1-0 victory over Hoffenheim. This result also made me win the bet I placed on Bayern’s success. With this match won, Bayern Munich can now boast with the 20th win at Bundesliga from the 24 matches played this season and the 10th successive victory.
I think that the changes made by Bayern’s coach, Jupp Heynckes, have had their contribution in providing the team with a fresh, new start. For example, the goalkeeper Tom Stark started the match for Manuel Neuer, Xherdan Shaqiri joined the game instead of Toni Kroos, and the German striker Mario Gomez replaced Mario Mandzukic.
On the other hand, things are not working so great for Hoffenheim, who have suffered their 16th league defeat of the season. Moreover, in case they also lose in front of Greuther Fuerth next Sunday, they’ll find themselves in danger of being relegated.
What I found the most interesting were the amazing statistics that put Bayern in some sort of a glorious light. For example, I think the most relevant one is that Hoffenheim have never beaten Bayern Munich in their nine head-to-head confrontations at Bundesliga.

To draw a conclusion, I would say that Bayern Munich couldn’t have lost this match, but only make it less spectacular. Though, this wasn’t the case either.
