Hertha Berlin vs Bayern – Bundesliga: Bayern’s poor form was confirmed after their humiliating loss to PSG in the Champions League.
It was tough to swallow for players, fans and club – and the reaction was very quick, since their manager Ancelotti got sacked.
The Italian arrived as a coach capable of controlling any locker room, but he ended up not being able to transform the team tactically.
He left with Bayern in 3rd place in the Bundesliga, which is already strange, but he also left the memory of a poor and boring style – unlike Jupp Heynckes’ style, who privileged verticality instead of possession football.
The question is: How does a coach who is capable of controlling locker rooms ends up being fired like this? He ended up being fired from the club for not being able to control the locker room.
Many news points to the fact of several players being against the manager’s options, which means, in other words, they “set him up”.
It is certain that Bayern has every condition to fight for the Bundesliga title and for the Champions League, because they are a team with a lot of quality on their roster and, while we wait for a new manager to arrive, it will be interesting to see how they react in this match.
Above everything else, they have to give the fans a better performance after that loss to PSG and, without Ancelotti, they don’t have any excuses not to react here, because this has to affect the players’ pride.
It is impossible to deny that Bayern has been presenting a possession football without any ideas and their hunger now will certainly translate into more shots, but it can also, at the same time, leave the team less organized and balanced on the defence. And Bayern, at the defensive level, has also been failing, because the team doesn’t feel so safe with Neuer still injured.
Hertha is a good team. This season they might feel more difficulties because they are also playing in the Europa League, which for example makes them come into this match with fewer days to rest, but they are a team who is very strong on their tactical organization and they can cause Bayern some troubles on that aspect.
Hertha vs Bayern – Betting Tip and Prediction:
Hertha is a team who is very good on the counter-attack and they can be more confident and more audacious here due to Bayern’s poor form.
I expect a good football match. Both teams want to hurt their opponents and I expect Bayern to improve here to send a message, because they are a team who has all the ability to score goals after all.
I can’t also ignore the fact that Hertha could very easily score in this match, so I expect a match with more than 2 goals.
