It is one of four duels between two Bundesliga sides in the second round of the DFB Cup 2018/19 and undoubtedly one of the big highlights. Two times in a row, the 18-time cup winner (Rekord) from Munich has not won the national cup competition in Germany.
Not least for this reason, the title of one of the more important goals of the season-spoiled club, which can only be found on the unfamiliar third place in the Bundesliga since this weekend. The Hertha, however, would have the advantage in a potential DFB Cup final to play in their own stadium for the trophy. However, since the finale has been held regularly in Berlin (consistently since the 1984/85 season), only the amateur team of the capital club has made it to the finals (1993).
Today’s Betting Tips Hertha vs Bayern
In Hertha vs Bayern, the odds of bookmakers speak in this season that the big final in Berlin again without the old lady takes place, because even in this home game against the Munich is the selection of Pal Dardai the blatant outsider. Noteworthy, especially as Berlin in the Bundesliga won 2-0 at home against the German record champions. A result that is quite relevant for the prediction at Hertha vs Bayern. Nevertheless, with the Reds there was only at the weekend a setback, which makes it all the more difficult to dare a tip against the supposed outsider at Hertha vs Bayern. Finally, the kickers of Niko Kovac should now be the more vigilant not to bluff again with a second defeat in a row in a crisis.
Hertha – Statistics & Current Form
This season, Hertha BSC have already scored the big coup against the big FC Bayern, when it was surprisingly 2-0 in the sixth matchday after goals by Vedad Ibisevic and Ondrej Duda. It was an overwhelming homecoming that included results such as 4-2 against Borussia Mönchengladbach and 1-0 against Eintracht Frankfurt, but victory over the SBU was the only home game of three in the last seven Bundesliga games. There is no doubt that there is enough room for improvement, which is underscored by the ninth place in the table, which the Berliners occupy in the Beletage of German football.
So it was the weekend the next setback in the 0-1 home defeat against VfL Wolfsburg. Doubly annoying because it went against a direct competitor in the fight for the Europa League. A home win and Hertha would receive the Munich as a table sixth. In the outsider role, the capital club, so much looking for the first cup final in their own stadium, but in any case would have been. All the more important that this role is now accepted, the old lady relies on their potential, and that is tied to the first leg in the Bundesliga. Nevertheless, it is to be expected that Hertha will be far more defensive in this game than last time. In concrete terms this means: four-chain with two defensive midfielders in front of it. It is important that the injured Arne Maier gets fit in time for the game. If he misses, that would definitely have a negative impact on Hertha vs Bayern for the prediction.
