Mark Uth scored twice as Hoffenheim recorded a deserved win over defending Bundesliga champions Bayern Munich.
Hoffenheim 2-0 Bayern Munich
Goals: 1-0 Uth (27'), 2-0 Uth (51')
Even with the likes of James Rodriguez, Arjen Robben and Franck Ribery on the bench, Bayern started with a genuine spring in their step as Robert Lewandowski grazed a post early on. Hoffenheim gained the upper-hand in the 27th minute, however, with Uth collecting a quick Andrej Kramaric throw and firing low and hard past Manuel Neuer.
After Bayern winger Kingsley Coman fired over shortly after the restart, Uth capped off a swift Hoffenheim breakaway with his second of the night. The introduction of James almost got Bayern back into the game, but Javi Martinez was unable to steer the Colombian's cross past the full-stretch Oliver Baumann as the 26-time Bundesliga champions fell to their first Bundesliga defeat of the season.
