Hertha Berlin vs Bayern Munich Preview and Prediction

Hertha Berlin in on a downward spiral at the moment with four losses in their last six outings. As a result, the team dropped to the sixth spot in the overall standings, one point below fourth and fifth-place teams Borussia Dortmund and Hoffenheim. They still hold the second and final Europa League qualifying berth for the next term.
Die Alte Dame was blanked by middling squad Schalke, 0-2, in their most recent Bundesliga fixture held on the road at the Veltins Arena last Saturday, as per the league’s official website.
Schalke netted one goal in each of the two halves, courtesy of Austrian forward Guido Burgstaller and German midfielder Leon Goretzka in the 41st and 62nd minutes, to hand head coach Pál Dárdai’s squad their seventh loss of the season.
Meanwhile, Bayern Munich pulled off a 2-0 win over bottom three team FC Ingolstadt on the road at the Audi Sportpark also last Saturday, ESPN reported.

The game looked headed to a goalless draw for both sides until Chilean midfielder Arturo Vidal broke the game’s deadlock right at the stroke of full-time with a close-range right-footed shot as he directed Thomas Müller’s assist past the outstretched arms of Ingolstadt goalkeeper Martin Hansen.
Dutch winger Arjen Robben quickly doubled the lead a minute into stoppage time with a left-footed shot from the center of the box, the assist this time coming from Brazilian midfielder Douglas Costa.
The win was a bounce-back performance for head coach Carlo Ancelotti’s side after they were held to a 1-1 draw by Schalke in the previous round.
