Bundesliga action on Saturday as Hertha and Bayern meet at the Olympiastadion – 3:30pm GMT.

Bayern go to the Olympiastadion with Champion’s League dreams for next season very much alive. They currently sit in second as they take on fourteenth placed Hertha.

Hertha go into this game with 11 points secured

Following two straight wins for Hertha in their most recent games, they will be keen to continue that form going into this fixture.

Also, with four draws in seven games, Hertha need to develop a strategy for getting over the line in games. With an fourteenth position in the league and 2 wins, 5 losses and 5 draws, they currently have 11 points in the League having won two games, drawn five matches, and lost five fixtures.

When Hertha host Bayern, they will do so on the back of one victory, four draws, and one defeats on their own ground.

Winning this fixture will see Hertha on 14 points.

It is likely that three key players will miss Saturday’s fixture, which is something of a concern for Sandro Schwarz and his Hertha team.

This season’s Bundesliga campaign, has so far seen Bayern Munich achieve 25 points

Bayern will take a huge positive from their recent 6-2 win against Mainz at Allianz Arena.

Also, Bayern’s League position speaks for itself, as they continue their rich vein of winning form. Their last win, was the 3rd in a row, which is responsible for their Champion’s League qualification position. Now they have 7 matches won, 1 games lost and 4 duels drawn; that’s why they currently sit in second place, with a total of 25 points having won seven meetings, drawn four games, and lost one game.

Bayern’s away record is remarkable and poses a significant threat to Hertha. In the 6 games they’ve played on the road this season, they have so far won three fixtures, drawn two games, and lost one game.

A win in this fixture, would take Bayern Munich’s points from 25 to 28, so far this season.

A solid defensive team

It’s an easy statement to make, but to win you simply have to score more goals than your opponent. Bayern have been consistently applying this principle, whilst remaining defensively solid as a unit this season, with 10 goals in their previous matches. Bayern are currently one of the best goal scoring teams in the Bundesliga, having so far netted 38 (37 from open play and one penalty). This is largely down to the efforts of their stand-out attackers – Jamal Musiala (7), Sadio Mane (6), and Leroy Sane (5).

Bayern’s ever growing list of players missing due to injury or illness to be a concern for Julian Nagelsmann, ahead of this Saturday’s fixture against their opponents.

January 2022 was the most recent time these two clashed in this competition and Bayern Munich took all three points winning 1-4 away.
