Leverkusen will be looking to register its first points of the Bundesliga 2022-23 season, as it hosts Hoffenheim on match day 2.
After finishing 3rd on the Bundesliga tables in the previous season, Leverkusen is off to a disastrous start in its second top-flight season under Gerardo Seoane. Leverkusen faced heavyweights Dortmund in their opening game, losing the game 1-0. However, the fans will be even more disappointed with the club’s performance last weekend, when it hosted Augsburg.
Both the teams were going neck and neck at halftime, but a goal by Andre Hahn in the final minutes of the match denied the hosts, what should have been an easy win. With consecutive losses, Leverkusen now finds themselves at the bottom of the table, with nowhere to look but upwards.
TSG Hoffenheim lost its first match of the season, despite scoring first against Borussia Monchengladbach. However, Andre Breitenreiter, who is playing his first season as Hoffenheim's coach, managed to turn things around in the very next game, as Hoffenheim overcame Bochum despite a 2 goal deficit. Baumgartner, Kabak, and Dabour each scored a goal, giving Hoffenheim its first points of the season. Hoffenheim had missed out on a European spot by just 6 points in the previous season, and fans will be hoping for at least a top 6 finish, if not for a Champions League spot.
