Hoffenheim – Bayern Munich Preview: Robben demands strong away showing

The Dutch winger wants to make it two wins from two when Pep Guardiola’s men travel to the Wirsol Rhein-Neckar-Arena this weekend

Arjen Robben has demanded another dominant performance from Bayern Munich in their Bundesliga clash at Hoffenheim on Saturday.

Bayern, in the hunt for a record fourth consecutive league title, began their Bundesliga campaign with a 5-0 demolition of Hamburg last Friday.

Thomas Muller’s double, combined with goals from Medhi Benatia, Robert Lewandowski and debutant Douglas Costa sealed the rout, but Robben asserted that Hoffenheim will provide a sterner opposition, although they have yet to beat Bayern in 14 attempts.

“We must try to immediately lay down a marker,” said the winger. “[Hoffenheim] are a team that can sit and defend, but they also make good forward pressure.

“Therefore, the goal is to show them immediately that we are in control, and show positive body language and passion.”

Robben, now in his seventh season with the Bavaria giants, scored 19 goals in all competitions in 2014-15, only for his campaign to be cut short by a series of niggling injuries.

But the Dutchman, who went close to netting on several occasions against Hamburg, is now back to full fitness and is aiming to recapture his best form in the coming weeks as Bayern target yet another Bundesliga record.

“I am delighted to attack again this season and to get back on the pitch,” he added.

“All I want to do is simply be an important part of the team once again.

“To win a fourth title would be something special, because you’re part of a story that lasts forever.”

Hoffenheim coach Markus Gisdol, meanwhile, has had to revamp his squad after a number of high-profile departures in the close-season, including Roberto Firmino’s switch to Liverpool.

One player that has remained at the Rhein-Neckar Arena is Kevin Volland and the forward insisted that Hoffenheim must aim to attack the Bundesliga champions if they are to stand a chance of beating Pep Guardiola’s team.

“We cannot just defend, because then it will only be a matter of time until they score,” he said.

“We have to be courageous, we have to attack and be aggressive.

“Obviously, this is a risky strategy but in my view the only way to have a chance against them.”

Match Preview Between Manchester United vs Newcastle united

New signing Florian Thauvin could be thrown straight into the Newcastle United squad for Saturday’s trip to Manchester United.

Thauvin, 22, agreed a five-year deal at St James’ Park on Wednesday, becoming manager Steve McClaren’s fifth signing after Georginio Wijnaldum, Ivan Toney, Aleksandar Mitrovic and Chancel Mbemba.

And the French attacker, who has moved from Ligue 1 side Marseille, could hardly have wished for a tougher debut, with Newcastle having only picked up one victory at Old Trafford in the Barclays Premier League era.

However, Newcastle’s assistant manager Paul Simpson has no qualms about utilising Thauvin as soon as possible.

“He’s a really talented footballer, somebody who we hope will add to the group and improve the group,” Simpson told nufcTV. “If he’s involved at Old Trafford on Saturday, we’re not expecting him to go and set the world alight straight away but if we can get him involved it’ll give the whole football club a boost, and the rest of the players because they want competition for places.

“And I also hope it’ll give the supporters a boost, because so far we’ve only got one point but the level of performance against Southampton [in a 2-2 draw] gave us all a little taster of where we can get to and what levels can be achieved.

“Hopefully, with the new signings coming in, we’ll go into the rest of this period before January with a good group of players, a group of players who all want to be part of this football club, who all want to give 100 per cent every day in training and in every game that we have.

“If we’ve got that, we can’t really ask any more of them.”

Louis van Gaal’s side came from behind to register a 3-1 first-leg victory over Club Brugge in their UEFA Champions League play-off on Tuesday and are one of just four clubs to hold a 100 per cent record in the BPL after two matches.

Defender Chris Smalling is determined to maintain that momentum and believes Saturday’s early kick-off could prove beneficial for United.

“We must continue our good start,” Smalling told MUTV. “It is another home game and we have to assert ourselves early on.

“It is good that we again get to be in the first game that plays and, hopefully, set the benchmark for the weekend.”

Marouane Fellaini serves the last of his three-match ban for United, while Phil Jones is set to remain sidelined due to mild thrombosis.

Newcastle, meanwhile, have Daryl Janmaat suspended after the Dutchman was sent off for two bookable offences in last weekend’s 2-0 defeat at Swansea City.

Manchester United (from): De Gea, Romero, Johnstone, Lindegaard, Blackett, Darmian, Evans, McNair, Rojo, Shaw, Smalling, Blind, Carrick, Herrera, Januzaj, Lingard, Mata, Pereira, Schneiderlin, Schweinsteiger, Valencia, Young, Depay, Hernandez, Rooney, Wilson.

Newcastle United (from): Darlow, Elliot, Krul, Coloccini, Dummett, Haidara, Janmaat, Lascelles, Mbemba, Taylor, Williamson, Aarons, Abeid, Anita, Bigirimana, Colback, De Jong, Gouffran, Obertan, Sissoko, Thauvin, Tiote, Wijnaldum, Cisse, Mitrovic, Perez, Toney.

Match Preview Barcelona vs. Sevilla

Ivan Rakitic believes Barcelona is in good shape to begin the season with victory in the UEFA Super Cup over his former club Sevilla.

Barcelona midfielder Ivan Rakitic is full of confidence that his side can claim the first trophy of a possible sextuple when it faces Sevilla in Tuesday’s UEFA Super Cup in Tbilisi.

Spain’s strength in European club football was underlined by the respective successes of Barca and Sevilla in the Champions League and Europa League finals at the end of last season.

Sevilla defended the title with a 3-2 victory over Dnipro, while Barca completed the treble thanks to a 3-1 triumph over Juventus.

Barca has recent experience of glory on this occasion, with victories in 2011 and 2009, although the club was defeated 3-0 by Sevilla in the 2006 showpiece.

Rakitic, who moved to Camp Nou from Sevilla in 2014, believes the Catalan giant can enjoy a repeat of 2009, when the club lifted six trophies.

“Nobody wants to do that more than we do,” he said. “But we have to take things each step at a time. And the first chance is on Tuesday in Tbilisi. We are confident in ourselves and in our strengths. We’ll work even harder than we did last year. But we know that there will be hard times this season too.

“We’ve got a strong team and I just try to be myself. I like taking on responsibilities, as I have done at all the clubs I’ve played for. My role won’t change because Xavi has gone. I am Rakitic and I provide my own virtues.”

Barca will be without Neymar, who has been diagnosed with mumps, while Adriano, Douglas, and Jordi Alba are all injured.

Sevilla’s Michael Krohn-Dehli, a fresh arrival from Celta Vigo in the offseason, concedes his side is the underdog, and that Tuesday’s clash may come too soon for all the new signings to gel.

“Maybe yes, maybe no. We will find out after the game,” he said. “It’s true that with so many new players we need a bit of time to adapt and get to know each other. In any case, we are ready to go out and play well and we want to win.

“They [Barca] have won the league, the cup and the Champions League. However, last season as a Celta player I was able to win at Camp Nou. In a game you always have a chance.”

match preview West Bromwich Albion vs Manchester City

Manuel Pellegrini has enjoyed the twin boost of a new contract and 2014/15 Barclays Golden Boot winner Sergio Aguero returning to fitness ahead of Manchester City’s Barclays Premier League opener at West Bromwich Albion.

On Friday, it was announced that Pellegrini, who guided City to the 2013/14 BPL title, had signed a new two-year deal running until the end of the 2016-17 campaign.

The Chilean should be further boosted by the presence of Aguero taking his place in the City line-up.

Aguero scored 26 times in 33 Barclays Premier League appearances last term but, along with attacking midfielders David Silva and Samir Nasri, found himself struck down with a sickness bug this week.

Speaking at a pre-match press conference, Pellegrini confirmed that Aguero and Silva have fully recovered, although doubts remain over Nasri.

“Aguero is working at 100 per cent and so is Silva – Nasri is just returning,” he said.

Pellegrini had been expected to hold back Aguero, Pablo Zabaleta, Martin Demichelis and Fernandinho from the season opener following their exploits in the Copa America, but last weekend’s 4-2 friendly defeat to Stuttgart appears to have forced a rethink.

Raheem Sterling could join Aguero and Silva in a fluid three-man forward line, although the England attacker’s fellow close-season recruit Fabian Delph will miss out due to a hamstring injury.

On Sterling, Pellegrini added: “[He has been] very, very good.

“The media have been talking about the price, but he’s an English player, young, with quality, speed and technical ability. He will improve every year playing with the likes of Yaya [Toure], Silva, Kun [Aguero], they will help him.”

Arsenal winger Serge Gnabry joined West Brom on loan on Friday to become Tony Pulis’ fourth major close-season signing.

Fellow wideman James McClean could supply the ammunition to Rickie Lambert, who ended a difficult spell with hometown club Liverpool and will hope to form a formidable forward partnership with Saido Berahino, Albion’s top scorer last season.

James Chester will remain in the BPL, having moved to The Hawthorns from relegated Hull City, while fellow defenders Joleon Lescott and Gareth McAuley (calf) are expected to shake off knocks to feature on Monday.

Ben Foster remains on the sidelines with a cruciate knee ligament injury, meaning Boaz Myhill is expected to start in goal for the hosts.

West Bromwich Albion (from): Myhill, Davidson, Dawson, Gamboa, Lescott, McAuley, Olsson, Pocognoli, Chester, Brunt, Fletcher, Gardner, McManaman, Morrison, Sessegnon, Yacob, Gnabry, McClean Anichebe, Berahino, Ideye, Lambert, Nabi

Manchester City (from): Caballero, Hart, Wright, Denayer, Demichelis, Kolarov, Kompany, Mangala, Sagna, Zabaleta, Fernandinho, Fernando, Zuculini, Evans, Nasri, Navas, Silva, Toure, Sterling, Lopes, Aguero, Bony, Iheanacho, Pozo
