Rs drew 3-3 with Die Kraichgauer on Saturday, before losing 2-0 on Sunday

Queens Park Rangers were unable to get the better of Bundesliga outfit Hoffenheim in two pre-season friendlies against the German side over the weekend.

On Saturday, the Rs battled back from two goals down to draw 2-2 with Die Kraichgauer at the Hugo Koch Stadium.

David Otto struck twice at the start of each half to give Hoffenheim a two-goal advantage, before Steve McClaren’s men fought back.

Summer signing Toni Leistner netted the first for the Rs, before Ryan Manning drew the west Londoners level with two minutes remaining.
