Hertha Berlin vs Bayern Munich
Germany – DFB Pokal
Date: Wednesday, 6th February 2019
Kick-off at 19.45 UK/ 20.45 CET
Venue: Olympiastadion (Berlin).
One of the most successful European clubs in the history of football is having a bitter time at their office. Bundesliga title is almost lost from their grasp to the nearest rival Borussia Dortmund; this is the only chance they got to revive their season. On the other hand, Hertha Berlin will play for their pride.
Aging of players and not finding their replacement is the main problem faced by Bayern management. This season they can’t live up to the expectation, and defense is a bit leaky. The Reds are very good at keeping possession of the ball and short passing. They always terrorize their opposition by controlling the mid-field and counter-attacking through wings.
The Robert Lewandowski and Joshua Kimmich pairing have worked for the away side at the top, contributing a total of 13 goals and 10 assists. Their weakness lies in protecting the lead and conceding late goals.
Pal Dardai and his troops are playing a more physical and aggressive game. Converting direct free-kicks into goals and coming back from a losing position to win the games are their strength. Hertha Berlin is a strong defensive unit. They are very good at defending against skillful players and set pieces.
