Bundesliga legend Bayern Munich suffered a devastating defeat to Hoffenheim on Sunday, ending an unbeaten 32-match run in all competitions until last year.

Bayern, winners of the Super Cup against Sevilla after extra time on Thursday, have not lost since December 2019, and have won 21 consecutive Bundesliga matches without winning the last 15.

However, Bayern star players Robert Lavandowski and Leon Goretzka struggled from the start, and Hansi Flick lost 4-1 in his club’s 39th competitive game.

The result comes just three days before Bayern Borussia Dortmund face Germany in the German Super Cup final, but all remains to be seen, as Lucian Favre’s men also beat Gusberg 2-0 on Saturday.

The European champion scored two goals in eight minutes, as his normal solid defense broke down under Hoffenheim’s pressure.

The German underdogs did not stop there as they punished Bayern’s second defensive error a few moments later.

Just 24 minutes later Hoffenheim took advantage of a two-goal lead over Manuel Neuer with a superb chip from Munas Dabur.

However, a quick VAR check for offside was also given the goal.

Bayern managed to pull a back just before the halfway mark, while Leroy Sane had a chance to find Joshua Kimmich after a sharp pass.

Sane provided a deep cross, in which the ball ended with a kimchi – which gave him a turn in the upper right corner.

Still, Hoffenheim finally put the icing on the cake, the super-sub Ihlas Babou plowing from the right side and Andrej Kramrik dropping.

The 29-year-old kept in touch to put the former Manuel Neuer in the past before moving the ball into the corner.

Hoffenheim’s final goal from the penalty spot – Krameric – has already led his Bundesliga to five goals this season – just two games later.
