Bavarians continue title assault
Jupp Heynckes' side go into the weekend 17 points clear in the Bundesliga, and will be confident of victory against the hosts, who sit in the drop zone
HOFFENHEIM: Gomes, Ochs, Abraham, Vestergaard, Johnson, Weis, Williams, Schrock, Volland, Usami, De Camargo
BAYERN: Neuer, Lahm, Van Buyten, Dante, Alaba, Luiz Gustavo, Schweinsteiger, Muller, Kroos, Ribery, Gomez
Bayern Munich are set to make two changes from the side that overcame Borussia Dortmund in midweek. Luiz Gustavo is set to get a rare start against his old club in the place of Javi Martinez, and Mario Gomez could replace Mario Mandzukic up front.
Holger Badstuber, Rafinha and Claudio Pizarro, however, remain injured.
Hoffenheim, meanwhile, are missing a host of players ahead of the visit of the league leaders. Andreas Beck and Eugen Polanski are both suspended after picking up five yellow cards each.
While Chris, Matthieu Delpierre, Sebastian Rudy, Sejad Salihovic and Boris Vukcevic are all sidelined.
