Three points a must for FCB in Hoffenheim

When Bayern visit TSG Hoffenheim on Saturday afternoon (Live in English from 3.15 pm CET on Web Radio), focusing on just the one game will not be enough for most football fans. They’ll have an ear to the radio, an eye on the videotext, or a finger on the mouse to refresh the live ticker, staying bang up to date on the matches involving Wolfsburg, Berlin and Stuttgart.

The latest news and goal flashes from the four-way fight for the Bundesliga title will not, however, be relayed to the Bayern dug-out. Knowing about the state of play elsewhere is “not something I consider particularly important,” Jupp Heynckes observed. “You should concentrate on the field of play, and not be distracted by events in other stadiums.” Indeed, there can only be one target for the champions in Hoffenheim: “We have to win our match, and we’ll see what happens after that.”
