Summary: Hoffenheim - Bochum 2:3 (Sport1)
Mons Davor went through a difficult period.
After retiring from the Israeli national team, the Israeli striker who did not play much in Hoffenheim last season, started the current season on the bench.
He did not play at all in the opening round, but tonight as part of the second round in the Bundesliga, Davor came on as a substitute (75) in a 2:2 situation against newcomer Bochum.
In the 88th minute, the moment that Davor was waiting for came: Rudy's lift found the head of Davor, who slid in and gave his team three precious points and a dramatic 2:3.
Davor did not hide his joy and celebrated with his friends the transformation and especially his goal that came after a very long time (December 2021).

"Davor saved Hoffenheim and Breitenreiter", they wrote in "Westdeutsche Zeitung", "When Hoffenheim couldn't find anything and looked more and more desperate, Davor rescued the team".
This victory broke Hoffenheim's streak of ten league games without a win, since March last season.
Andre Breitnerreiter, Hoffenheim's coach, said after the game: "In the 20th minute I didn't believe we would win this game. We knew that Bochum would play mainly on long balls and yet they caught us off guard twice. I have to give compliments to my team and also to the crowd that pushed us."
Angelinho, the Brazilian defender who came to Hoffenheim from Leipzig instead of David Raum, celebrated at the end: "It's a great feeling, it's very important to win the first game at home. We made life difficult for ourselves, but we gave everything after the double deficit. We fought until the end and never stopped believing."
