ZL: What do you expect going into the group stage for Hoffenheim?
RM: It’s Man City’s group, they should run away with it. Could see them winning all six games. But second place is definitely up for grabs and Hoffenheim will definitely compete for that right until the last matchday.
ZL: What advantages will Hoffenheim have over Shakhtar and Lyon?
RM:I’m not sure they will have an advantage over either. Both clubs have plenty of European experience which will help them at this level. So it’ll be difficult for Hoffenheim, but they can definitely go through.
