David Alaba and co. have well and truly earned it! After a perfect footballing week with three wins from three games in the Bundesliga, Hansi Flick granted his team a two-day breather. "It's important to clear your head and maybe not see the coach every day," said the record champions' head coach with a smile after the 4-0 win at FC Schalke 04 on Sunday.

Hoffenheim at home on Saturday

Thanks to their recent successful results, the league leaders' lead over second-placed RB Leipzig has been extended to seven points. Next Saturday (15:30 CET), the men from Munich will host TSG 1899 Hoffenheim. "We'll start intensive preparations for Hoffenheim on Wednesday. That'll give us three training sessions, which we'll use to reflect on the game and practise the things we need to do better," said Flick. With renewed energy, the next successes ought to then follow.

Joshua Kimmich gave a phenomenal performance on Sunday with three assists.
