Bayern München fell to their first defeat of their season as Hoffenheim inflicted a 4-1 loss on the German champions at PreZero Arena on Sunday.


With Sunday's Bundesliga game taking place just three days after Bayern's Super Cup victory over Sevilla in Budapest, head coach Hansi Flick handed rests to the likes of Leon Goretzka and Robert Lewandowski.

Hoffenheim coach Sebastian Hoeness, who won the 3. Liga title with Bayern's reserves last season, made one change to the team that beat FC Köln 3-2 last week as Stefan Posch replaced Kasim Adams at the back.

Coming off a run of 14 Bundesliga wins in a row, Bayern fell behind to first-half goals from Ermin Bicakcic and Munas Dabbur before Joshua Kimmich pulled one back for the guests.

Lewandowski and Goretzka came on just shy of the hour mark, but couldn't save Bayern, who ended up losing 4-1 after Andrej Kramaric scored twice in the second half, cementing the win from the penalty spot in injury time.

Not a bad start to the season for Kramaric, who has scored five goals in two Bundesliga games, and Sebastian Hoeness' Hoffenheim team, who are now top of the table.
