Bayern Munich v Hertha Berlin Predictions and Preview

Bayern Munich have only lost one of their last 21 games against Hertha Berlin, with the champions looking to continue their unbeaten start to the 2021-22 season this weekend. The away team would be overjoyed with any form of result, especially after losing both of their Bundesliga fixtures so far this term. 

Die Roten have won 16 of those 21 most recent meetings. Hertha did enjoy a run of three draws and then a victory over a four-match spell between 2017 and 2018, but Bayern have recovered to win five of their last six games against the capital club, scoring 13 goals across those victories.

Julian Nagelsmann is still settling into his new role in charge of Germany’s biggest club, but the Bayern coach would’ve been happy to see his team dig out a hard-fought 3-2 victory over Cologne at the weekend, having let a two-goal lead slip. 

That got the champions into the win column at the second attempt, following a 1-1 draw away to Borussia Monchengladbach in their opening fixture. Hertha, on the other hand, are the only team to have lost both of their first two fixtures. 

The Old Lady went down 3-1 away to Cologne in their first game, before a 2-1 defeat against Wolfsburg on home soil last weekend. Pal Dardai does have some extra time to prepare his players for this tough trip to Munich, since their hosts are in cup action due to their Super Cup clash with Borussia Dortmund last week. 

Even so, the hosts are the overwhelming favourites to pick up the three points in this Bayern Munich v Hertha Berlin preview. Die Roten are 2/9 in the latest odds for this game, while the away team are 16/1 and even the draw looks unlikely at 13/2 with William Hill

One to watch for Bayern Munich: Robert Lewandowski has scored in both of Bayern’s Bundesliga fixtures so far this term, while he was also the star of the show in netting a brace against Dortmund in the Super Cup. The prolific Pole is the 2/1 favourite to break the deadlock in these Bayern Munich v Hertha Berlin predictions. 

One to watch for Hertha Berlin: Stevan Jovetic took less than five minutes to open his account for Hertha Berlin when making his debut in their season opener against Cologne. The Montenegro forward could be one to look out for in the anytime scorer market if Hertha manage to breach Bayern’s defences. 

Long shot: Bayern have scored exactly four goals in two of their last three games against Hertha. All three of Die Alte Dame’s goals across that run of fixtures came in one match, with a 4-1 home win priced at 12/1 in these Bayern Munich v Hertha Berlin tips. With Lewandowski scoring first, those odds rise to 35/1
