TSG Hoffenheim's home game in the group phase of the UEFA Champions League against Manchester City (Tuesday, 2 October/18.55 CET) will be broadcasted live in Germany on pay TY sender Sky. Hoffenheim's other group phase fixtures will be broadcasted via the streaming service DAZN.
Bad news for the women's team: Katharina Naschenweng tore her anterior cruciate ligament in training last Thursday and is now set for a long spell on the sidelines. The Austria international will soon undergo an operation by a specialist in Innsbruck and her rehab will subsequently be supervised by TSG. The 20-year-old had only joined the club from Sturm Graz in the summer, playing the full 90 minutes in the U20s' opening match against FSV Hessen Wetzlar. "Kathi has given a good account of herself in the past few weeks," said Ralf Zwanziger, the Head of Women's Football at Hoffenheim. "The serious injury is a real blow to us, even though we know that our new signing will fight her way back with great ambition and discipline. In this process, she'll receive the best-possible support."
Kevin Vogt in running training
Kevin Vogt is back in action! The TSG Hoffenheim captain bruised his right thigh in a collision during the opening match of the Bundesliga season against Bayern Munich, which ended in a 3-1 defeat, and had to be substituted. Only a few days after that game, on Monday morning, the central defender took part in a running session with rehab coach Otmar Rösch and appeared to be optimistic that he would make a quick recovery from the injury.
