Germany’s Hoffenheim only unbeaten team in major leagues

Madrid, Jan 17 (IANS) Hoffenheim, who hold the fifth place in the Bundesliga, became the only unbeaten team in major European leagues in the 2016/17 season.

The German club holds this record after Real Madrid was defeated by Sevilla on Sunday,reports Efe.

Hoffenheim played 16 games this season, in which they won six matches and drew in 10 ties.

German coach Julian Nagelsmann took over the helm at Hoffenheim last February, after six years of working with the youth team.

Hoffenheim was promoted from the fourth division to the Bundesliga in only eight years, after millionaire investor Dietmar Hopp led the club in 2000.

The German club remains the only undefeated team so far, although it competes in the Bundesliga and has no big stars, except for scorer Sandro Wagner.
