Hertha Berlin vs Bayern Munich
Date: Friday, 28 September 2018
Kick-Off at 19:30 UK / 20:30 CET
Venue: Olympiastadion Berlin (Berlin).
Bayern Munich slipped up or the first time in the new season on Tuesday when they shockingly failed to see off the struggling Augsburg side at their Allianz Arena.
It was unusually slow attacking performance from the reigning champions who managed to bag only a single goal in 90 minutes against the team which shipped seven goals in four previous games in the competition.
Obviously, the clash against Fuggerstadter once again proved how dependent the Bavarians are on their star striker Robert Lewandowski who spent the whole game on the bench.
The Polish striker should make the return on Friday when Niko Kovac’s side travels to the capital to take on Hertha BSC in the first game of the Matchday No 6 at Olympiastadion.
Hertha Berlin vs Bayern Munich Head-to-head
Bayern dominated the match-up historically (much like they did against all teams in Germany), but they struggled particularly with the Old Lady in the past couple of years.
- Each of last three head to head games between the two teams saw draws.
- Hertha held it out to a goalless draw in their previous visit to Munich in February this year.
Hertha Berlin vs Bayern Munich Prediction
Pal Dardai’s men will also come into the match lower on confidence after falling 3-1 to Bremen in the mid-week tie. They thus ruined a fine kick off to the new season which saw them pick up ten points from opening four games in Bundesliga.
The Hungarian manager can generally be satisfied with his men’s displays in the final third as the Old Lady averages two goals per game after five rounds. However, it’s the lack of meticulousness at the back which causes Dardai’s headaches ahead of the clash with Robert Lewandowski & company.
With Bayern’s attacking potential and Hertha’s attacking-minded style at the start of the season, we just have to see goals in the first match of the round. Over 2.5 goals FT can be regarded as a banker bet at 1.50 odds, while you can also try with Bayern to win & BTTS at 2.50.
