Bayern Munich vs Hertha BSC
Germany – Bundesliga
Date: Saturday, 24 February 2018
Kick-Off at 14:30 UK
Venue: Allianz Arena (Munich).
Bayern Munich have continued to steam towards the title defense last weekend in Wolfsburg when Robert Lewandowski bagged the stoppage-time winner to make it ten straight wins for the reigning champions in Bundesliga. The Bavarians are now 19 points clear at the top of the standings and only a miracle could prevent them to get the 28th domestic silverware.
FCB have also been successful in the mid-week’s Champions League affair closing the last 16 round tie with Turkish Super Lig holders Besiktas with a 5-0 victory in the first leg at Allianz Arena. Thomas Muller and Robert Lewandowski have notched a brace each while Kingsley Coman got his name on the scoresheet as well.
Jupp Heynckes’ men can thus return to domestic football without any worries about their Champions League adventure and they’ll be massive favourites to keep the excellent form going on Saturday as well when they host Hertha BSC. The Old Lady have had a rollercoaster campaign in this term of Bundesliga which is only enough for mid-table positions.
Pal Dardai’s men have stunned Bayer Leverkusen 0-1 on the road two weeks ago, but they’ve entirely failed to capitalize on such success falling shockingly at home to Mainz 05 with the same scoreline. Given that they’ve only bagged one goal in the remaining three of last four games, one can hardly see them on target past the Bavarian giants here.
Bayern Munich vs Hertha BSC: Head-to-head
Bayern Munich have been super dominant in the history of H2H matches between these two teams.
The Bavarians have won 25 and lost only 2 of 31 home outings against The Old Lady.
However, we must mention that Hertha BSC have managed to pull off back-to-back draws in last two matches against FCB.
Bayern Munich vs Hertha BSC: Prediction
The most recent slip-ups in H2H games will only serve as a motivation for the hosts to return on the winning ways in matches against the Old Lady.
Since the visitors have failed to find the back of the net against the relegation strugglers Mainz 05 at home last time out, we doubt they’ll do it against the reigning champions on the road.
