Bayern Munich face a fight if they are to successfully defend their Bundesliga title this season. The Bavarian giants will need maximum points to have a chance of ending the upcoming weekend at the top of the standings.
It has been a forgettable couple of weeks for Bayern Munich, as they were eliminated from the Champions League, and they have now lost their place at the top of the Bundesliga standings. Thomas Tuchel will have a huge challenge on his hands to get the Bavarian giants back to the top of the standings, as they will likely need to claim victory in all five remaining matches this season.
Bayern Munich relinquished their spot at the top of the standings last weekend, as they were beaten 3-1 on the road by Mainz. It was a poor display by the reigning champions, as they managed just two shots on target. Sadio Mane opened the scoring after 29 minutes, but Mainz scored three second half goals to stun the German giants.
This is also a huge fixture for Hertha Berlin on Sunday, as they are still fighting for their top flight status in the Bundesliga. They come into this fixture sitting bottom of the standings, and they have lost each of their previous three matches. Only Bochum has lost more frequently in the Bundesliga this term, while no side has picked up fewer victories.
A third straight defeat was suffered last weekend, as Hertha were beaten 4-2 at home by Werder Bremen. They started that game really poorly, and allowed two efforts in the opening 30 minutes. They will need to be much quicker out the blocks this weekend, as no side has scored more goals in the opening 45 minutes this season than Bayern.
Bayern Munich vs Hertha Berlin Head to Head
Bayern Munich has an excellent record in this fixture, as they have won each of their last six matches against Hertha in the league. In the reverse clash, Bayern ran out 3-2 winners. Hertha’s only win in ten against Bayern was secured in September 2018, while both of their two wins in 24 previous clashes with Bayern were secured in Berlin.
Bayern Munich vs Hertha Berlin Prediction
It has been an indifferent season for Bayern Munich, but this remains a game that they should comfortably win on Sunday. We expect the champions to start quickly, and secure a comfortable 3-0 win at the Allianz Arena.
