Bayern Munich Prediction – Can Bayern Munich start with a bang?

Last season’s title winners were pushed all the way by runners-up, Borussia Dortmund, as Bayern secured the Bundesliga title but only just, with a meagre 2-point margin separating the two teams at the end of the campaign.

Bayern Munich will therefore be keen to get this new season off to a good start on Friday night when they play host to Hertha Berlin at their Allianz Arena in order to get an early psychological advantage over Borussia Dortmund who play Augsburg at home on Saturday afternoon.

Since the end of last season’s triumphant finish to last term (which resulted in a 5-1 thrashing of 7th placed Eintracht Frankfurt on the final day), as well as a German Cup final 3-0 win over RB Leipzig, Bayern have produced mixed results during the pre-season.

Friday night’s hosts have played 6 warm-up matches which have resulted in wins against Real Madrid, AC Milan and Fenerbahce, but they’ve also lost to Arsenal and Tottenham, as well as a defeat in the Super Cup to Borussia Dortmund.

However, Bayern bounced back with a convincing 3-1 win away at Energie Cottbus in the DFB Pokal, so this will be a welcome boost ahead of this opening match.

Hertha Berlin Prediction – Can Hertha Berlin hold their own?

The visitors finished in a comfortable, if not slightly disappointing, mid-table finish at the end of last season’s Bundesliga as they occupied 11th place after what was a bit of a frustrating campaign for the Berlin outfit.

Not least of all, their final match of last season resulted in a heavy 5-1 loss at home to 4th placed Bayer Leverkusen which ended an encouraging 4-match sequence without defeat for Hertha Berlin who had recorded back-to-back wins against Stuttgart and Augsburg within this period.

An overall away record of 5-4-8 23/30 doesn’t look too impressive at first glance, but remember, we want to see how many times Hertha Berlin were handed heavy defeats on the road in last season’s Bundesliga season.

Hertha Berlin were handed 3+ goal defeats in just 2 of their 17 matches on their travels last term which were a 4-1 defeat at Fortuna Dusseldorf and a 5-0 loss at RB Leipzig. Even against the perennial Bundesliga title winners, Bayern Munich, Hertha Berlin have lost by 3+goals just once in their last 6 visits to the Allianz Arena.


Key-Facts – Bayern Munich v Hertha Berlin

  • Bayern Munich produced mixed results in pre-season, 3 wins, 3 defeats
  • Hertha Berlin lost by 3+ goal defeats in just 2 of their 17 away matches last term
  • Bayern Munich haven’t beaten Hertha Berlin by 3+ goals in last 6 meetings


Betting Tips Verdict

It’s the opening game of the new Bundesliga season, so Bayern Munich may be a little rusty while Hertha Berlin have given good accounts of themselves in recent previous visits to the Allianz Arena.
