Talking Points from the Bundesliga weekend

COMEBACK KINGS

Hoffenheim’s comeback win against Augsburg was the seventh time that Sebastian Hoeness’ team came from a goal down to earn at least a point in the Bundesliga this season.

Their strong run with four wins and two draws from their last six league matches has lifted them to third place and into contention for a Champions League spot.

BAYERN ABSENCES

Bayern Munich coach Julian Nagelsmann has seen three of his 13 players that were absent from Friday’s 2-1 loss to Borussia Moenchengladbach, return to training.

Kinglsey Coman, Corentin Tolisso and Omar Richards were back on the pitch at the weekend to boost the depleted numbers in the squad.

Nine players had been out with a Covid-19 infection and four more are still missing through injury or international duty at the Africa Cup of Nations.

“We will see who is available for the game at Cologne (on Saturday),” Nagelsmann said. “I don’t expect extremely many players to be back in the starting 11.”

WOLFSBURG FREE FALL

Coach Florian Kohfeldt is under mounting pressure after the Wolves lost 1-0 to VfL Bochum to make it eight consecutive defeats across all competitions.

Wolfsburg, who competed in the Champions League group stage this season, have set a new club record with their sixth straight league defeat that has left them in 14th place, just two points above the relegation playoff spot.

Kohfeldt took over in late October.
