It means they’ve already had some sort of workload.”Bayern face Hoffenheim on January 18 as they aim to claw their way back into the Bundesliga title race.Kovac’s side trail Dortmund by six points – the first time in eight years that they’ve not been leading the standings going into the winter break in Germany.last_img read more
