After losing three of their last five league games, Hertha Berlin have dropped further from the top four in the Bundesliga table. They will be facing a tough challenge when they host Bayern Munich at the Olympiastadion in the 21st round of the German top flight.
Inconsistency Hits Hertha
After staying in the top four for most of the season, the hosts have dropped many points in the last few games. They will be looking to get back to their form from now to the rest of the season. Hertha have collected a total of 6 points from a possible 15 in their last five league games in the Bundesliga. Their last league match was against Schalke away from home where they lost 2-0.
Hertha are currently sitting in the 6th place in the league table. They have 33 points from 10 wins, 3 draws and 7 losses. The team scored 27 goals and conceded 23 since the start of the season.
Per Skjelbred could replace Fabian Lustenberger in central midfield. Niklas Stark is expected to recover from a calf injury in time to partner Skjelbred there.
Bayern Looking To Extend Their Leading Gap
The visitors are in a much more comfortable situation in comparison with the hosts. The team have only lost one game since the start of the season and have just beat Arsenal in the first leg of the Champions League. Bayern Munich have collected a total of 13 points from a possible 15 in their last five league games in the Bundesliga. Their last league match was against Ingolstadt away from home where they won 2-0.
Bayern Munich are currently sitting in the first place in the league table. They have 49 points from 15 wins, 4 draws and 1 losses. They have scored 45 goals and conceded 12 since the start of the season.
Xabi Alonso could be rested as well, with Thiago starting in a deeper role or Joshua Kimmich getting a chance from the off. Thomas Müller is expected to start after he had to settle for a spot on the bench in the Champions League in midweek.
Head To Head
Bayern Munich have won 5 of the last 5 meetings between the two teams. The last clash between the two teams was in September 2016 when the final score was 3-0 to Bayern at home.
