September 19, 2020 – With a convincing 8:0 Bayern victory against Schalke, the German football Bundesliga opened on Friday. On Saturday, a hattrick for Andrej Kramaric helped Hoffenheim win their first-round match. 

T.portal reports that on Saturday, Andrej Kramaric led Hoffenheim, who played away in Cologne. The Croatia national team player already scored two goals in the first half. Cologne equalized to 2:2 in the 86th minute, but the Croatian striker scored his third goal for the 3:2 victory in the second minute of added time. 


Hoffenheim and Cologne met in the first round of the new season on Saturday afternoon. In the third minute, Cologne was punished by the class of Andrej Kramaric.

Namely, goalkeeper Timo Horn played his stopper, Jonas Hector. His weak pass saw Kramaric rush the player and managed to nutmeg the Cologne goalkeeper and found the back of the net for a Hoffenheim lead of 1:0.

The hosts came back in the 22nd minute, and the equalizer was scored by the Swedish national team player Sebastian Andersson.

Andrej Kramaric shined again in the 5th minute of added time in the first half when he routinely nailed a penalty in the opposite corner of the goal. Earlier, referee Daniel Siebert sought the help of the VAR to make sure that Christoph Baumgartner was fouled in Cologne’s box.

The hosts equalized for 2:2 in the 86th minute thanks to Drexler, but in the second minute of added time, Andrej Kramaric scored this third goal to bring the 3:2 victory to Hoffenheim.

Of course, we are especially pleased with Kramarić’s successful entrance into the season, which shows he had enough time to make a full recovery and great preparations with the German club.

With this strong of a start, it could be his most successful season in the German Bundesliga. So far, it was the 2017/18 season, when he scored 17 league goals.
