Team news

Hertha Berlin

Pal Dardia will be without a host of players for the visit of the league leaders with Marvin Plattenhardt, Javairo Dilrosun, Jhon Cordoba, and Dedrtck Boyata all confirmed outs.

Bayern Munich

For Hansi Flick’s side, they will still be without Javi Martinez and Leon Goretzka after they broke health regulations for Covid while Corentin Tolisso has only just returned to first-team training, and Friday night’s clash will come too soon. Tanguy Nianzou is still out with a long-term injury.

Both Niklas Sule and Leroy Sane will be hoping for starting birth’s against Hertha after coming on as substitutes in the 4-1 win.

Bayern Munich possible starting lineup:

Neuer; Sule, Boateng, Alaba, Davies; Kimmich, Roca; Sane, Muller, Gnabry; Lewandowski

Hansi Flick’s side should have far too much firepower for the hosts, as they have the third-worst defensive record in the league.

Hertha can easily trouble Bayern at the back, but with their embarrassment of riches going forward, this should be a relatively routine victory for the reigning champions.

Predicted scoreline: Hertha 1-4 Bayern Munich
