INTO THE FINAL MINUTES...
It's been a scrappy end to this game, but only Dortmund have scored as many goals as Hoffenheim this season. One more to make it two wins from two?
The Union forward comes on for Haraguchi with a few minutes to play here.

It's taken a matter of seconds but a foul from Samassekou on Ryerson puts the substitute into the book.
Baumgartner and Rudy come off here with Gacinovic and Samassekou coming on for the final 10 minutes.
LINESMAN TAKES A KNOCK
A challenge between Jaeckel and Baumgartner sees the Hoffenheim man run into the linesman and he's taken a heavy knock. He's receiving treatment now but should be fine to continue.
Next chance for Khedira as he is on the end of a scramble in front of the Hoffenheim goal. He's on the ball, but slides his foot at the ball but is stopped by Baumann in the perfect place.
CLOSE FOR ÖZTUNALI
Once again Kruse is the creator as he slides a lovely pass in behind the Hoffenheim defence for Öztunali to chase, but his touch lets him down and Posch can clear.
Union's goalscorers come off as Trimmel and Voglsammer come on to replace Gießelmann and Awoniyi.

RUDY FIRES OVER!
Ritter does really well down the left, twisting and turning to get past Ryerson before cutting the ball into the middle. Adamyan controls and does well himself to lay the ball off to Rudy, but his shot goes high over the crossbar.
Incredible save from Baumann here to deny Kruse from giving Union the lead. The duo combine again in roles reversed as Awoniyi lays the ball off for Kruse to fire at goal on his left, but Baumann gets a strong hand down low to his right to put the ball wide of goal.
Ritter - who scored his first Bundesliga goal on the opening weekend - comes on alongside Adamyan to replace Dabbur and Bruun Larsen.

A CHECK FOR HANDBALL
Dabbur's shot from close range was blocked behind, with Hoffenheim questioning whether it came off the arm of Jaeckel. And no penalty is given.
Situation No penalty
Decision No penalty
KRAM AND KURSE THE KEYS
Two talented forwards are playing in similar ways here today. Both Kramaric and Kruse are dropping into midfield to pick up possession and set their attacking teammates away. That's two goals today set up by those two, having dropped into midfield.
COMING INTO IT
A slow start to the second half has been made worse by Awoniyi's early equaliser here. Once again the home side are looking to dictate the play with possession, and they'll want to get their creative spark going once again.
AWONIYI BRINGS UNION LEVEL!
It's the deadly duo at it once more as Kruse and Awoniyi combine to level for Union. Kruse plays a fantastic pass into the path of Awoniyi from the right flank into the middle. He fires at goal but Baumann saves, but the rebound comes toward Awoniyi and Akpoguma can't clear ahead of him, allowing the Nigerian to fire home with venom.
GOAL!2 : 2
No changes at the break here as we get back underway in Sinsheim.
We'll have just the one minute of time added on at the end of the first half.
A first yellow card of the day for either side as Khedira is cautioned for a foul on Baumgartner.
RAUM HAS A GO
Hoffenheim's first attempt off target as Raum has space ahead of him but fires high and wide over the Union goal.

0 off target
3 on target

3 on target
That's seven successive Bundesliga games with at least one goal or assist for Kramaric. The Croatia international is in fantastic form and has assisted four of his side's five goals so far this season.
BRUUN LARSEN FOR THE LEAD!
Hoffenheim have completed a first-half turnaround here to go 2-1 up. It's a lovely through ball from Kramaric who had come deep to pick up possession, and he spots the run of Bruun Larsen brilliantly. Luthe gets a hand to his shot, but it's a tidy finish from the Dane in the end. But that comes from the fine work of Kramaric!

A good effort on goal from the Dane as space opens up ahead of him as he runs at the Union goal from deep. He's in a central position and decides to go for goal, but his powerful hit is beaten away by Luthe.

AWONIYI IN ON GOAL!
He's been in great form at the start of this season but can't find the net here. Kruse's pass around the corner of a defender plays him clean through on goal, but his first touch lets him down as Baumann comes out to block Awoniyi's effort from just inside the penalty area.
KRUSE OFF THE BAR!
Max Kruse has almost scored one of the goals of the season here. Much like Grifo's free-kick for Freiburg yesterday, he steps up from 30 yards and curls the ball at goal for the top corner. Baumann leaps across goal but can't get near it, only to be saved by his crossbar as the ball bounces off the upright.
Two goals in the opening 15 minutes here, and they've come from the first two chances on goal of the afternoon.
Hoffenheim are level just three minutes after conceding and it's a second goal for a defender. The ball is played around the edge of the Union area and comes to the right with Stiller, who floats a cross into the middle and Akpoguma has been a surging run forward to meet it at the back post and power a header down and in at the near post.
GOAL!1 : 1
UNION LEAD EARLY!
It's only his second-ever Bundesliga goal, but Niko Gießelmann has Union in front. A long switch of play from left to right finds Ryerson on the right flank. He floats a ball into the middle and Gießelmann has timed his run to perfection, but his header goes straight at Baumann. The rebound, fortunately, drops in front of goal and the Union left-back is onto the rebound first.
GOAL!0 : 1
KNOCK FOR DABBUR
The Hoffenheim forward is fine to continue but took a knock to his head in an aerial challenge with Awoniyi in the Union area.
Nothing to separate these two sides so far. Both have had spurs of possession, but neither able to take full control of the game or get a chance on goal in the opening five minutes.
HERE WE GO!
Our Super Sunday is underway as the home side get the ball rolling.
As with every game this weekend, a moment's silence is held before kick-off in memory of the great Gerd Müller, who passed away exactly one week ago.
STARTING DEBUT FOR JAECKEL
After playing in Fürth for three years, Paul Jaeckel celebrates his debut for Union Berlin today and also returns to the Bundesliga stage after more than three years. In the spring of 2018, the defender made three appearances for Wolfsburg.
HOFFENHEIM TO GO TOP?
A win for Hoffenheim would return them to the top of the table after Matchday 2, with Wolfsburg currently sat top of the pile after securing their second win of the season on Saturday.
WATCH: TIME TO GET WARM!
IN-FORM BRUUN LARSEN
On Matchday 1, Bruun Larsen scored his first Bundesliga goal since 29 September 2018 - and third in 47 top-flight appearances overall.
KRUSE'S FAVOURITE OPPOSITION
Union's No.10 Max Kruse has scored 85 Bundesliga goals, including nine against Hoffenheim - his best haul against German top-flight opposition.
With Kramaric leading the side last weekend with his hat-trick of assists, Hoffenheim began the season in style with a 4-0 win over Augsburg. Kramaric has scored (six), assisted (five) or both in six successive Bundesliga matches. Following Dortmund's defeat to Freiburg yesterday, Hoffenheim are now enjoying the longest unbeaten run of all 18 current Bundesliga teams (eight matches).
Die Eisernen were in UEFA Europa Conference League qualifying action on Thursday, winning 4-0 in Finland. After picking up a point on the opening weekend against Leverkusen, Urs Fischer will be hoping his side can keep their form up today. Union are winless in six away Bundesliga matches, though, and have claimed just three points from a possible 18 on the road dating back to March 2021
HOFFENHEIM TEAM NEWS
Sebastian Hoeneß will need Kramaric at his best once again this weekend, with several first-team regulars still sidelined, including Bebou, Belfodil and Grillitsch. Summer signing Stiller, who arrived from the Bayern Munich reserve team, impressed on his debut in central midfield alongside Rudy, while Bruun Larsen made a goalscoring return to the club after going out on loan last term. All three retain their places here as Hoffenheim gear up for their first home game of the season.
UNION TEAM NEWS
After their midweek adventures in the UEFA Europa League, a few players have been rotated in, with Paul Jaeckel and Julian Ryerson coming in to start. Urs Fischer's side won just four times away from home last season, so they will be eager to start improving on that record here.
