But Pep Guardiola'sCity side moved top of the Premier League table with the victory over Brighton at the weekend while Hoffenheim collected their third defeat in six league games.
Manchester City have officially confirmed their starting side and substitutes to take on Bundesliga outfit Hoffenheim in a Champions League group stage game this evening.
"Losing at home (to Lyon) made things tough and conceding so early (at Hoffenheim) was hard, but we fought against everything today", saidGuardiola. "This competition, if we are able to go through to the quarterfinals, we'll have learned about what we have to do to beat opponents, I'm pretty sure".
"But I think this team has always shown we are up for these kinds of games".
"I am pretty sure what we have learnt here will be good for us in the future", he said. They are good teams.

Amazon to pay $15 an hour to all U.S. employees
The move will benefit 250,000 workers in the U.S. , 17,000 in the United Kingdom and tens of thousands of seasonal workers. In April, Amazon revealed that the median annual pay for its workers around the world was just $28,466.
Guardiola - back on the touchline after serving a one-match suspension during defeat by Lyon - saw Leroy Sane denied a stonewall penalty but kept quiet.
However, the Spaniard point-back refused to talk about match referee Damir Skomina. "I don't want to talk because if I do I will be in the tribune".
But City finally got the victor after Stefan Posch was caught dallying inside the area, allowing Silva to find the bottom-right corner with typical assuredness.
The German side have no spectacular players on their team, however, their manager is rated a bit special. City can not afford to have one eye on their trip to Anfield on Sunday, but their squad is deep, and I expect them to get their Champions League challenge back on track.
The Spaniard led City to the Premier League and Carabao Cup last season, adding to his array of trophies earned during time in charge at Barcelona and Bayern Munich.
