Hertha Berlin will face Bayern Munich at Olympiastadion at German DFB Pokal 1/8-Finals. Hertha Berlin against Bayern Munich is the match with big interest after their previous matches in German Bundesliga. Review our thoughts on this match here below.
Hertha Berlin this season is showing weak skills and now stands at the 9th position of Bundesliga. They have the same quantity of scored goals as conceded. In last 7 home matches, Hertha Berlin won only two and played 5 times a draw. As the best players of Hertha, we can name O. Duda and V. Ibisevic. They have been involved together to 20 scored goals at Bundesliga.
This season, Hertha Berlin creates problems at home even for the strongest teams in Germany and scores goals in almost every match. All main squad players are fit and ready for the match. Hope to see big desire to fight for going further at this tournament.
They are strong at shooting through the middle, consistent first eleven and likely to play aggressive football. However, they are facing problems at keeping possession of the ball, defending set pieces and defending against skillful players.
Bayern Munich plays very beautiful football and is showing great potential, however this season they struggling at Bundesliga. For now, the team stands at 3rd position and have 7 points difference between them and the league leader. Despite losing in last Bundesliga round Bayern Munich has the best form in last 5 matches. Bayer Leverkusen, of course, made a big surprise for all and especially for Bayern by making comeback at the match.
This season is unlucky for Bayern so one of the possible trophies could be DFB Pokal. Bayern Munich has problems with player injuries. Match against Hertha Berlin will miss players like F. Ribery, A. Robben, S. Gnabry, C. Tolisso, and M. Neuer. Of course, there is someone to replace the injured players, but the attack of the team will suffer unambiguously.
This season team looks great at attacking and defending set pieces, shooting from direct free kicks, finishing scoring chances and creating chances through individual skills. They are likely to play possessional football with short passes, control the game in the opposition’s half and attack down the left. However, they are facing problems at avoiding offside and protecting the lead.
Since the beginning of the year 2017 teams have met 4 times, 3 games they played a draw and once won Hertha Berlin while playing at home. Most interesting is that Bayern Munich didn’t win any games for the last two years against Hertha, and lost this season in the first round between them.
