Michael, you played in Hoffenheim between 2012 and 2013. How was that time for you and what did you take from it?
"Hoffenheim was my first club abroad. So I have fond memories, it was an exciting time."
What will it come down to on Saturday?
"We'll need to play our game and implement our tactics with passion. Then we'll definitely be capable of getting a result."
What are TSG's strengths?
"Hoffenheim are a good footballing side that have very good individual players but are strong as a unit too. They press well, which is why it'll be important for us to be solid in defence."
Augsburg are three points behind TSG after 10 rounds of matches. How do you assess both teams' start to the season?
"Our start to the season has been decent. We could've picked up a few more points, but all in all we're satisfied. We want to open up even more of a gap between ourselves and the places in the table below us by the winter break."
You'll be coming up against your compatriots Florian Grillitsch and Stefan Posch. How much are you looking forward to facing them?
"I'm looking forward to seeing them both again. We see each other often in the national team too."
