The Reds are currently taking on the Bundesliga side in the first-leg of their Champions League qualifier – with the score 0-0 after 30 minutes.
However, Liverpool defender Dejan Lovren nearly handed the hosts a simple opener, after he clumsily challenged ex-Arsenal winger Serge Gnabry in the box.
The referee immediately pointed to the penalty spot, however, Mignolet was able to save Kramaric’s tame effort:

Jurgen Klopp’s side have struggled to grow into the game in the first-half, despite being so close to going a goal behind, with Hoffenheim currently enjoying the majority of possession.
However, with speedsters Sadio Mane and record signing Mohamed Salah in the line-up, the score line could change in the blink of an eye for the Premier League visitors.
