Football Manager 2021 Hoffenheim tactic and team guide. Club culture and board requirements, tactics, key players, youth prospects and potential transfers in FM21.


Here is a brief analysis of the Hoffenheim squad, their club structure, relationship any potential managers will have with the board, expectations and possible tactics any FM21 manager can use.

About the club


Hoffenheim are a professional football club that ply their trade in the Bundesliga. Originally founded in 1899 as a gymnastic club, Hoffenheim evolved into more of a football club in 1945.

Hoffenheim were only in the 5th tier of German football in 2000 and have rapidly risen through the ranks under the backing of owner Dietmar Hopp who has invested heavily into the club’s future. 

In the 2017-2018 Bundesliga season, Hoffenheim achieved an impressive 3rd placed finish in the league, which is the club’s best till date. Under Hopp, Hoffenheim have even moved on to a new stadium and are considered one of the better clubs in the Bundesliga.

Board Requirements  


The club had a decent showing in the 2019-2020 season and finished 6th in the league table. They have qualified for the Europa League as a result. The minimum board requirements once you take over will be;

FM21 Hoffenheim Board Requirements

    1. Make the top 6 of the Bundesliga (Automatic Qualification into the Europa League)
    2. Make the QF of the DFB Pokal.
    3. Reach the 2nd knockout stages of the Europa League.

Additionally, the board requires you to play high-tempo attacking football, have a preference for signing younger players based in Germany, use the club’s youth system to develop young players and not sign players who are above 30.

Hoffenheim have good training facilities and a good youth system. However, you will need to work on improving these after you stabilize your position at the club.

Squad, Formation and Tactical Style


Hoffenheim are a team that generally like to attack. They like playing a fast tempo game, so a vertical tiki-taka is the best-suited system.

A 4-4-2 is probably the best-suited formation to the available squad of players. This enables the players to play to their strengths.

A rough example of what your line-up would look like in a 4-4-2 formation is as follows;

FM21 Hoffenheim Tactics



Oliver Baumann as a sweeper keeper.

Stefan Posch and Kevin Vogt as the 2 centre backs, Vogt as a Ball playing defender.

Pavel Kaderabek & Ryan Sessegnon as the 2 wing-backs. Increased crossing instructions are recommended.

Sebastien Rudy, Dennis Geiger, Robert Skov & Mijat Gacinovic as the 4 midfielders. Rudy as the deep playmaker on defence duty, Geiger as a Mezzala, Skov and Gacinovic as the inverted wingers.

Munas Dabbur & Andrej Kramaric as the 2 forwards. The former as a deep-lying forward and the latter as an Advanced forward.

Alternatively, you can go with a 4-3-3 by pushing your wide midfielders to wingers.

Key Players


1. Sebastien Rudy


FM21 Sebastien Rudy

Rudy who is currently on loan from Schalke is an experienced midfielder who exudes quality. His passing and composure from midfield will massively help any manager taking over.

2. Andrej Kramaric


FM21 Andrej Kramaric

Kramaric is the main man for Hoffenheim and is the biggest source for goals. Keeping him fit and going will be crucial in having a good season.

3. Pavel Kaderabek


FM21 Pavel Kaderabek

The experienced Czech fullback is a bundle of pace and extremely hard to handle on the flanks. His delivery and industry from the right flank will be evident and managers will quickly start to rely on him to churn out results.

Weaknesses


1. The quality of backups in the squad may not be upto quality and could prove fatal if your squad is affected by injuries.

2. You run the risk of some talents being poached by other clubs especially in search of higher wages.

3. Defense is a big concern and you will often have to hope on outscoring opponents to secure favourable results.

· Mathias Ginter

· Armel-Bella Kotchap

1. Lucas Ribeiro


FM21 Lucas Ribeiro

The 21-year centre back can be a solution to Hoffenheim’s problems at the back and can be a leading player for the club in the future years.
