CHERRY ON TOP!

A debut goal for Rutter! He picks up the ball on the edge of the D, takes a touch to get it out of his feet and fires past Pavlenka at his near post.

SESSEGNON SHARP

Bremen do carve out a rare, late chance as Füllkrug gets onto a high ball into the box, but Sessegnon is alert to the danger and pinches it off his toes before the Werder striker can pull the trigger.

An accomplished performance by the American on loan from Bayern. Friedl is, of course, also a Bayern youth product.

COMPREHENSIVE AGAIN

Hoffenheim are on course for only the seventh win of the season, but it'd be their fourth by a three-goal margin. That includes a 4-1 victory over Bayern.

DELIGHT FOR DABBUR

Four goals in three games this week for the Israel international.

NOT ENOUGH FROM BREMEN

The visitors are yet to have an attempt on goal this half.

KRAMARIC!

The sub is almost immediately into the action as Bebou crosses again from the right. Kramaric just misses it in the centre but earns a corner as it goes behind off Gebre Selassie.

NO LET-UP

Hoffenheim send on their 13-goal top scorer Andrej Kramaric for the final 30 minutes. The Croatian is also yet to commit a single foul this season.

BIG WEEK FOR DABBUR

Munas Dabbur had a hand in all three goals in Thursday's 3-3 against Molde in the UEFA Europa League. It means he's got four goals and an assist in the last week when you include his strike against Dortmund.

THREE AMIGOS

Dabbur, Baumgartner and Bebou have Hoffenheim on course for three points.

DABBUR ADDS A THIRD!

It's a lesson in efficiency today from Hoffenheim. Rudy slips in Bebou down the right, who just manages to keep the ball in as he crosses into the middle. It's straight to Dabbur, who has time to take a touch and knock the ball home for his fourth of the campaign - the same amount he got in 2019/20.

Bremen make a change at the break with attacking midfielder Romano Schmid replacing Milos Veljkovic, which means a change in shape for the visitors as they go to a back four.

TIGHT BUT TSG LEAD

It's been a half of relatively few chances but Hoffenheim have been clinical, putting away two opportunities they've created to lead 2-0. Bremen have rarely troubled Baumann in the opposition goal.

BAUMGARTNER DOUBLES!

A second goal just before half-time for the hosts. The Austrian latches onto a poor headed clearance, plays a one-two with Dabbur and is then into the box. He's under pressure from two defenders but still manages to get a telling shot away and past Pavlenka. Two goals in the last four days for the 21-year-old.

VELJKOVIC DOWN

Baumgartner came down on the ankle of the Bremen centre-back and he needs some quick treatment.

BAUMGARTNER WIDE

Another good cross from young left-back Marco John. Baumgartner gets his head to it but only nods wide. A free-kick is given against the Austrian playmaker in any case.

CLINICAL BEBOU

Three in three Bundesliga games now for the Togolese.

BEBOU ON THE RUN

The rapid forward is at it again, twisting and turning his way past Toprak as he gets into the box, but one touch is a fraction too heavy and allows Pavlenka to smother the ball.

BEBOU WITH THE LEAD!

He's often criticised for missing chances, but Ihlas Bebou has made no mistake here. Samassekou's through ball from deep and the forward is onto it in a flash, running clear and placing his finish beyond Pavlenka. The flag originally went up for offside but a VAR check found he was indeed onside and the goal counts.

Another set piece, another centre-back getting his head to the ball. This time it's at the other end with Richards rising highest, but his effort fails to find the target.

TOPRAK HEADS

We're seeing a lot of the Turkey international so far and he's into the action again as he meets a corner from the right. His header is into the ground and could've caused Baumann a problem but the TSG keeper times his leap right to gather around the top corner.

MOMENTS AWAY

The teams are out in Sinsheim ahead of this final fixture of Matchday 22.

MILESTONE FOR BAUMANN

Hoffenheim goalkeeper Oliver Baumann makes his 350th Bundesliga appearance. Since his debut in May 2010, no player has featured in more Bundesliga games than him.

BREMEN TEAM NEWS

Although without a game in midweek, Werder Bremen also make two changes from their goalless draw against Freiburg. Leonardo Bittencourt replaces Romano Schmid, and Felix Agu comes in for Ludwig Augustinsson at left wing-back.

WATCH: HOFFENHEIM WARMING UP

HOFFENHEIM TEAM NEWS

The home side make two changes to the side that started against Molde in the Europa League on Thursday: Gacinovic is injured and Vogt suspended in the Bundesliga, so Kaderabek and Grillitsch replace them here - the latter making his 100th Bundesliga appearance for TSG. Top scorer Kramaric is on the bench.

FORM

The visitors are on a marginally better run of form coming into this one. Florian Kohfeldt's men have taken eight points of the last 15 available, drawing with Freiburg last week and beating Hertha Berlin and Augsburg in January. Hoffenheim have taken seven points over the same period: they drew 2-2 with Borussia Dortmund last time out, but lost to both Bayern Munich and Eintracht Frankfurt before then.

THE STAKES

Hoffenheim and Bremen are respectively 12th and 11th in the Bundesliga standings, level on 23 points. That's just five points above Bielefeld in the relegation play-off place, so a win for either side today would go a long way to giving them a welcome cushion above the drop zone.
