Bayern Munchen – Hertha, Bundesliga Prediction
ANALYSIS AND PREDICTION FOR BAYERN - HERTHA
Bayern currently has a smaller, but more refined squad. This means that at each position, the Bavarians have 2 players who can play well there, but they also have quite polyvalent ones. In the summer, changes were made exactly where they needed to be made. Some aging stars have left, and new ones have come. Their last addition was Ivan Perisic from Inter who came on loan.
Hertha sold the midfielder Lazaro to Inter. He was attracted to Lukebakio by Watford, as was Nuremberg’s main midfielder last season, Lowen. Grujic again stayed in Berlin for another season on loan from Liverpool. Hertha are in a very strong form of friendly games, and warmed up with a victory for the cup before this match. They played quite friendly matches and lost in only 2 of them.
Expert view : Bayern were not impressive in the Super Cup when they played with Dortmund. At present, their squad has changed a lot from that of the last few years. Now it relies mostly on the younger ones. Hertha often cause problems for Bayern and we do not think that in the first round the champions will reach a devastating victory over this rival. However, Hertha was also attracted Boyata as a free transfer from Celtic, with the Belgian being a classy defender. Forecast – Hertha +2.5 AH at 1.65.
In only 2 of Hertha’s last 17 games have they lost by more than 2 goals
Bayern have only managed to win 1 time in their last 13 games with Hertha by at least 3 goals difference
