Bayern overpower Hoffenheim 5-2 in German Bundesliga
Berlin, Jan 28: Bayern Munich came from behind to crush Hoffenheim 5-2 in the 20th round of the Bundesliga action.
The league front-runners had their ninth straight victory in all competitions after bouncing back from two goals down to Hoffenheim during the match on Saturday, Xinhua news agency reported.
The visitors grabbed a perfect start against the German champions as Mark Uth slotted home his 10th goal of the season after capitalizing on a rebound from Bayern goalkeeper Sven Ulreich, who blocked Serge Gnabry’s penalty with just three minutes into the game.

Bayern remained on the front foot and levelled the scores five minutes later as Jerome Boateng headed home Arjen Robben’s corner kick.
