Julian Nagelsmann’s Hoffenheim team will contest their debut European match against Jürgen Klopp's Liverpool as they look to book their place in the 2017/18 UEFA Champions League group stage.

After a fourth-placed finish in the Bundesliga last season – the Sinsheim club’s best-ever position – Hoffenheim earned the right to qualify for the Champions League proper through the competition’s play-off round. Making their debut on the European stage, TSG were in the pot of five unseeded teams for the league route.

Sevilla, Napoli, CSKA Moscow and Sporting Lisbon were all possible opponents in the draw, but it is Liverpool - managed by former Borussia Dortmund boss Jürgen Klopp - that Hoffenheim will welcome to south-west Germany for their maiden European tie at the WIRSOL Rhein-Neckar-Arena.

The first legs will be played on 15/16 August, with the returns taking place on 22/23 August. Should Hoffenheim make it through, they will learn their Champions League group opponents on Thursday 24 August. As a consolation, the sides that fail to progress will instead enter the Europa League, with that draw held on Friday 25 August.
