The last time

City clinched a last-minute 2-1 win during our first meeting with the German side back in October.

We were behind within the first minute against the Bundesliga outfit, but levelled shortly after through Sergio Aguero in a thrilling Group F encounter.

Chances went begging for the Blues who were denied what looked like a clear penalty, until Silva struck home in the 87th-minute.

Press conference

Pep Guardiola:

“We have 15 players available, so I can’t do it (rotate the squad) too much,” Pep said. “We have 15 players tomorrow and it’s a really tough game.

“We are in the next stage which is important, but we have to try and win every game - to finish first.

“They (Hoffenheim) were incredible against Shakhtar Donetsk and they lost. It was incredible and fascinating to watch as a spectator. My admiration for Hoffenheim has increased.

“I knew about Julian Nagelsmann and his team but now I realise how tough tomorrow will be.”
