Today’s football prediction for Bayern Munich vs Hertha BSC
German champion Bayern München opens the new season in the Bundesliga hosted by Hertha BSC. The match will be played on Friday, August 16, starting at 7:30 pm UK at the Allianz Arena in Munich.
Bayern München won the Bundesliga title last season, finishing with two points more than second-placed Borussia Dortmund. The Bavarians recorded 24 wins in 34 games this season, allowing only four losses. Bayern München recorded 88 goals this season – the most of all teams, and was also solid in defense with 32 goals. The Bavarians did not make the best of the new season after losing 0-2 to Borussia Dortmund for the German Super Cup on August 3rd. Four days ago, the champions recorded a 3-1 success as guests of the fourth-division Energie Cottbus in the first round match of the DFB Pokal. Bayern are now gearing up for the start of the championship, with a contested match against Hertha on Friday night.
The Hertha team finished in 11th place last season. Hertha are satisfied with the ranking in the middle of the table in recent years. Hertha has failed to take a step forward in its development to be close to the leading teams, or at least to argue with the teams of RB Leitzpig or Bayer Leverkusen for a more top ranking. Ante Čović graduates enter the upcoming match with three wins in their previous four games. Hertha achieved a convincing victory at the start of the tournament for the German Cup by dealing with the amateur Eichstätt after a success of 5:1.
Last season, Bayern Munich recorded a difficult 1-0 home win against Herta. The two teams also met for the Cup tournament as the Bavarians won 3:2 as guests. These are also the last two games between the two teams, but Herta outplayed her opponent 2-0 for the championship in Berlin last season. Now, in my opinion, the Bavarians will start a strong new season and win at least two goals difference in front of the crowded stands of Allianz Arena.
